Bicycle accidents occur more often than they should. Many of these accidents could be avoided if automobile drivers exercised caution when operating their vehicles and respected bicyclists’ rights to share the road. Unfortunately, negligent and reckless drivers are responsible for bicycle accidents every day, and innocent cyclists suffer serious injuries and damages as a result.
The attorneys at Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger have a reputation for success in bicycle accident cases. We understand how devastating these injuries can be, and we fight for financial awards that fully and fairly compensate injured cyclists and their families. If you or a loved one has sustained injuries in a bicycle accident, contact our office to schedule a free consultation.

- Our Menlo Park personal injury law firm advocates for bicyclists’ rights through our legal representation and pursuit of justice. We also advocate for their rights as part of our civic duty and commitment to bicycle safety. We are sponsors of both the Silicon Valley and San Francisco Bicycle Coalitions.
- Some of our attorneys are avid cyclists who have personally experienced the hazards and dangers bicyclists face on our local roads. We have the knowledge and skills necessary to determine and prove how your accident occurred, which parties were responsible, and the total injuries and damages that you suffered.
- We think everyone who has been injured in a bicycle accident caused by someone else’s negligence should have access to legal representation. We take our personal injury cases on contingency and only collect attorneys’ fees after we help our clients recover compensation in a settlement agreement or trial award.
Menlo Park Bicycle Accident Liability
Sometimes clients contact us after a bicycle accident, and they don’t have all of the answers to how their bicycle accident occurred. It’s very infrequent that a bicyclist causes an accident by violating California’s bicycle accident laws. Bicycles are often struck by automobiles without warning, and severe injuries (such as spine injuries and brain injuries) can make it difficult for injured cyclists to recall details of the accident. As your legal representative, our job is to investigate your accident, discover evidence that supports your personal injury claim, and prove accident liability.
Our law firm has access to a variety of resources and a network of experts that we use to help prove our cases. In bicycle accident claims, we often hire experts to reconstruct the accident, help determine how the accident occurred, and establish who was at fault. We also speak with accident witnesses and carefully review police reports so that we can challenge any inaccuracies or false information.
Compensation for Your Losses
We know that securing compensation for your injuries and damages is a critical part of your physical and financial recovery after an accident. We will thoroughly examine all of your losses, including future losses, to determine the full value of your injuries and damages. We will pursue compensation for your pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, medical bills, future medical expenses, and any other losses you have suffered.
