Davidson Bike Law daily handles cases where drivers claim a cyclist swerved or “appeared” in front of them, out of “nowhere”—excuses the drivers use to justify rear-ending, T-boning, or sideswiping the cyclist.
Davidson Bike Law has overcome these situations numerous times by factual analysis.
This includes the fact that the cyclist was conspicuous, that the cyclist was going the same direction and did not serve as shown by GPS/Strava data, or at times showing that there was a high likelihood that the driver was unaware because s/he was glued to phone as shown by cell phone records. These can be the toughest cases to fight because the traffic collision report often blames the cyclist, not the driver. Some law firms do not take on these cases because they know that the driver and their insurance company will fight liability tooth and toenail. Davidson Bike Law reviews the report as your attorney but also as a cyclist who weekly logs dozens of miles on the streets of Southern California. Davidson Bike Law listens to YOU, the rider, when deciding whether to take your case. The firm has had many successful case results where the driver claimed that the rider swerved in front of their car “out of the blue.” This isn’t a guarantee that your case will be successful, but it indicates that Davidson Bike Law will doesn’t take a cookie cutter approach. Likewise, Davidson Bike Law has handled many cases successfully when other firms rejected the case due to the difficulty of proving liability. Davidson Bike Law isn’t deterred by difficult cases, by lying drivers, by lazy law enforcement, or by ill-intentioned insurers. Our most important case is yours.*
