Robert Maizel rides and races bikes.  I know cycling injuries and I know the law!

I speak your language because not only am I cyclist, racing cyclist and bike rider; I am a million dollar verdict winning trial lawyer.  I get you Justice!

Don’t trust your bike accident case to just anyone… Trust me!  I ride, race and know what really happens on the road.  I know the Peloton and I know what happens when a car hits a bike, because not only do I ride, I have been hit by cars too.

What you Should Do if You are a Cyclist who was Hit by a Car

  • Make sure you are ok.

I know that this sound simple, but you have to make sure that you are ok.  If you have injuries, call an ambulance (911) immediately.  If you hit your head you probably have a concussion even if you were wearing a helmet.  Don’t forget, that your helmet only will survive one accident, so replace it immediately.

  • Call the Police.
  • Obtain the striking driver’s license plate number and State of Issue (Take a photo if you can).
  • Obtain the striking driver’s license number and State of Issue (Take a photo if you can).
  • Obtain the striking driver’s insurance information (Take a photo if you can).
  • If you were hit by a taxi cab, obtain the PUC Number of the taxi.
  • Take photos of the vehicle that struck you and the damage to their vehicle.
  • Go to the Hospital, Urgent Care or a Medical Provider immediately. 

It is not only important to make sure that you are ok, but you must go to a healthcare provider immediately to report all of your injuries.

Most times, a bike accident or bicycle accident with a car leads to very serious injuries. Even when wearing protective gear such as a helmet, the bicyclist is susceptible to a permanent or even fatal injury if struck by an automobile.  Cyclist sustain severe bulging or herniated disc injuries, elbow injuries, knee injuries, broken bones, head injuries and concussions, paraplegia, quadriplegia and even death.
