Injured By A Pothole Biking in California? The City Should Pay!

California is a beautiful state to bike in but what if you get injured hitting a pothole biking?

Can you sue if you were injured by a pothole biking? Yes you can and Walch Law can help. 1-844-999-5342.

Who’s Responsible for Safe Roads for Biking

The city and state are responsible for keeping the roads safe from dangerous biking conditions such as potholes, uneven surfaces and even poorly marked bike lanes. California biking injuries happen all the time as the result of these poorly maintained roads and it is not something that you should have to pay out of pocket for as you try to recover. Most riders that are injured in this way are seriously injured and have to deal not only with mounting medical bills but missed work too. Here’s what you need to know when you are looking to file a personal injury or wrongful bicycle lawsuit against the city:

  • Less time: Usually the statute of limitations in California is two years but when it is a city of municipality that you are listing as the defendant, it is one year or shorter. What this means is that you need to act now in calling us so we can make sure any case filings and communications are within this tighter deadline
  • Case value: How much is your bicycle accident worth when we are suing Venice or Mill Valley or Palm Springs? The more injuries and other impact (i.e. disability, missed work) you have the more your case is worth and the good news is that cities can pay out these larger amounts because they have high insurance policies to cover the very type of accident you are in.
  • Lawyer up!: Cities will fight everything when it comes to their responsibility in these types of cases so when you want to get the most money possible and not deal with the administrative headache that is anything with a city, you want to make sure that you have Walch Law fighting for you.

California cities owe it to their residents and visitors to keep the streets in good working condition and when they don’t meet this duty, they can be held financially responsible. Depending on the nature and extent of your accident and injuries, your case can be worth millions of dollars.
