I was rear ended in an auto accident. The other driver fled the scene. My auto insurance decided they wanted to be of little help. They lied, denied me medical coverage, and strung me along for 5 months before finally totaling my vehicle. I was left in a medical/ auto limbo with no one to help since my insurance wouldn't answer my calls/ emails. It wasn’t until HHJ trial attorneys got involved that my insurance started providing the coverage they were suppose to from the start. Kamil Robinson from HHJ was there every step of the way to explain things and answer any questions no matter what time of day. First and foremost he made sure I received the medical care I needed and made sure my auto insurance held up their end of the bargain. Kamil along with Freesia Farris really helped me navigate and move past an unpleasant situation I was dealt. If it wasn’t for HHJ the outcome would have been a lot different. Thanks again Kamil and everyone at HHJ!

I consulted with Emma for an employment issue. I was under a lot of stress and she was absolutely kind, patient and compassionate and listened to all the details of my issue. Although this was not a topic of their practice, she spent time providing me several resources that could help me and get me started. I felt cared for by her welcoming communication and not rushed even though she knew she wouldn’t be able to help or make money from my case, that didn’t prevent her from supporting me and give me recommendations. Thank you Emma 🙏

Michael and his team were so great during this entire process. They helped me to get a pretty significant settlement from my case and they were never delayed in any of the processes. I am confident that had I not "fired" the first attorney that I started to work with and called HHJ trail attorneys, I would not have gotten the results that I got with HHJ. You can't go wrong with working with these guys to settle your case.

Michael and the HHJ staff were extremely helpful from the start of my case less than a year ago. From the time I had my accident, to having doctor appointments set up to the final conclusion, it couldn’t have been a smoother process from beginning to end. Michael is very detailed and organized and always has your best interest at heart. He is very responsive and is always on top of it. I didn’t have to do much other than show up to my doctor appts and respond with info that was needed. I would without a beat use Michael and his team again if needed. HHJ is the best in Southern California!

Mr. Adam Hepburn and his firm, HHJ Trial Attorneys, took on our legal case. Mr. Adam Hepburn came recommended, luckily. We can't thank Mr. Adam Hepburn and his firm for their stellar work throughout our entire legal case. If I had any questions or concerns, Mr. Adam Hepburn would quickly address my concerns either via email, cell phone or even on text. Mr. Adam Hepburn was very truthful, thoughtful when explaining the facts of my case, and extremely professional. If you're on the fence with hiring Adam Hepburn and his firm, don't be, he's the best in the field. Adam won my case! Must hire him and his firm if you need his type of services.

How Do I Know If I Have a Bike Accident Claim?

Determining whether you have a valid bike accident claim involves several factors. Here’s a guide to help you understand if you might have a claim:

  1. Establishing Fault:

    • Negligence: If another party (e.g., driver, pedestrian, or another cyclist) acted negligently and caused the accident, you may have a claim. Negligence could include actions like speeding, running a red light, or distracted driving.
    • Defective Equipment: If the accident was caused by a defect in the bike or a part (e.g., faulty brakes or tires), you might have a claim against the manufacturer.
  2. Injury Documentation:

    • Medical Records: Seek medical attention immediately after the accident. Medical records that document your injuries are crucial for a claim.
    • Severity of Injuries: Consider the severity of your injuries. Minor scrapes might not warrant a claim, but more serious injuries (e.g., broken bones, head injuries) likely will.
  3. Evidence Collection:

    • Accident Scene: Gather evidence from the accident scene, including photos, witness statements, and police reports.
    • Maintenance Records: If a road hazard caused the accident, records showing the responsible party’s failure to maintain the road properly can be vital.
  4. Legal Considerations:

    • Statute of Limitations: Be aware of the time limit for filing a claim in your jurisdiction. This period can vary by state or country.
    • Comparative Fault: Understand your state’s laws on comparative fault. If you were partially at fault, it might affect your claim’s viability and the compensation amount.
  5. Consulting an Attorney:

    • Legal Advice: Consult with a personal injury attorney specializing in bike accidents. They can evaluate the specifics of your case and provide guidance on the likelihood of a successful claim.
    • Contingency Basis: Many personal injury lawyers work on a contingency basis, meaning they only get paid if you win your case.

If you believe you have a bike accident claim, taking these steps will help you build a strong case.

What Should I Do If I've Been Involved in a Bike Accident?

If you’ve been involved in a bike accident, taking immediate and appropriate actions can significantly impact your health, safety, and ability to file a successful claim. The first step is to prioritize your safety and well-being. Move to a safe location if you are able and call emergency services to report the accident and request medical assistance. Even if your injuries seem minor, it’s crucial to get a professional medical evaluation as some injuries may not be immediately apparent.

While waiting for medical help, gather as much information as possible from the accident scene. Exchange contact and insurance details with the other parties involved, and if there are any witnesses, collect their contact information as well. Photographs of the scene, including damage to your bike, any vehicles involved, and visible injuries, can serve as vital evidence later. If the police arrive, ensure that an official report is filed and obtain a copy for your records.

Seek medical attention promptly, even if you feel fine initially. Some injuries, like concussions or internal damage, may not present immediate symptoms but can have serious long-term effects. Medical documentation of your injuries is also essential for any legal claims you may pursue. Follow all medical advice and keep detailed records of your treatments, medications, and any expenses related to your injuries.

Once you have addressed immediate health concerns, it’s advisable to consult with a personal injury attorney who specializes in bike accidents. They can help you understand your rights, evaluate the strength of your case, and guide you through the legal process. An experienced attorney will handle communications with insurance companies and work to ensure you receive fair compensation for your injuries, medical bills, lost wages, and any pain and suffering.

Throughout the process, keep a detailed record of the accident, your injuries, medical treatments, and any interactions with insurance companies. This information will be invaluable for your attorney and can strengthen your case. Remember, taking these steps not only helps protect your health and legal rights but also aids in your recovery and the pursuit of justice.
