Sacramento Bicycle Accident Attorney
Personal Injury Law Firm with UNPARALLELED advocacy
It is a troubling fact that California has more bicycle accidents than anywhere else in the U.S. With the rise of bicycling's popularity, many of our cities, Sacramento included, have made great strides of incorporating bicycles into our regular flow of traffic. Still, not all drivers are acclimated to sharing the road with bicyclists and many of their actions put those on bikes at a significant risk.
These actions by motorists are inexcusable and should be accounted for in a court of law. At my Sacramento personal injury firm, Ross Nott, Attorney at Law, I have been defending victims of injury for more than two decades. Over that time, I have helped thousands of clients recover the relief they deserve and need to put their injury behind them. I am prepared to bring the same dedicated, award-winning advocacy to your bicycle accident claim.

What causes bicycle accidents?
Generally speaking, the same kinds of irresponsible actions that cause car accidents can also cause a bicycle accident. However, bicyclists do not have the benefit of many safety features and are exposed directly to devastating impacts during these collisions.
- Motorists commonly cause bicycle accidents when:
- They fail to look for bikes when exiting their vehicle
- They fail to signal a turn
- They fail to signal changing lanes
- They fail to look for bicycles at intersections
- They drift into bicycle lanes
- They are distracted while driving (radio, phone, texting, etc.)
- They are drunk or impaired behind the wheel
If one of these motorist actions—or any other—contributed to your bicycle injury, then it may be time to start exploring your legal options. You and your loved ones should not have to bear the medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering resulting from your accident without the compensation you deserve.
