If you live in or around Glendale, California, you have likely noticed that electronic bicycles (or e-bikes) are becoming an increasingly popular option for those navigating the community and its surrounding areas.
E-bikes appeal to users for a variety of reasons. Because these vehicles are motorized, they offer a relatively efficient means of getting from point A to point B. However, their environmental impact may be relatively minimal when compared to that of a car or other such vehicle. E-bikes also tend to be less expensive than cars.
These are just a few reasons you may choose to ride an e-bike. Unfortunately, if you are ever involved in an accident while riding such a vehicle, there is a good chance that you will sustain serious injuries requiring costly medical treatment. Your injuries might also limit your ability to perform certain work-related tasks. It’s possible you will have to stay home from work until you fully recover. During this time, you might not be able to earn a paycheck. This will make paying for your unexpected medical bills even more challenging than it already is.
Are you facing such struggles in the aftermath of an e-bike accident? You may be eligible for compensation. Discuss your case with a Glendale e-bike bike accident attorney at the Law Offices of Howard Craig Kornberg to learn more about your legal options.
E-bike accidents may occur for many potential reasons. There are some instances when these accidents are random occurrences that no one is at fault for. There are also instances when careless e-bike riders are injured because they put themselves in harm’s way.
That said, it is not uncommon for e-bike riders to be injured because someone else was negligent. If you were injured in an e-bike accident resulting from the negligence of another party, you can often pursue compensation for your medical bills and other such losses by filing a claim to collect from said party’s insurance.
Regardless, before filing a claim or lawsuit, you must identify the negligent party who caused your accident and gather evidence proving they were negligent.
This may require conducting an investigation. Although you may not have the resources necessary to investigate your case on your own, a qualified Glendale e-bike accident attorney can investigate the accident for you.
Motorists with whom e-bike riders share the road are often to blame for e-bike accidents. However, there are exceptions. For example, an e-bike accident may occur if the manufacturer of an e-bike overlooks a dangerous defect.
