Bicycle Accident Attorney
Serving Danville, Pleasanton, Livermore & San Luis Obispo Area
If you’ve been injured in a bicycle accident, you should talk to an attorney right away.
If you’re trying to get compensated for your injuries, you’re up against a big insurance company that is only after their own interests. I level the playing field.
Each year, thousands of people are seriously injured or killed in cycling accidents due to the negligence of motorists, bicycle repair shops, and bicycle manufacturers.
Despite the widespread information available to the public regarding the rights of cyclists on public roadways, many motorists are oblivious, or even resentful of cyclists with whom they are required by law to share the roadways, and negligently cause serious injuries or death to cyclists.
I was hit by a car riding my bike. I’m on disability and low income. He took care of everything. All I had to do was sit back and wait for my money. I highly recommend the Law office of Thomas Sokat
Tom Sokat, an avid mountain and road biker for many years, will fight for the rights of cyclists. If you or a loved one has been injured in a cycling accident, please call Tom immediately for a free consultation. No one is better qualified than he is to represent you and get you what you deserve.
The following list provides guidelines to follow so you don’t hurt your chances of a fair settlement in your bicycle accident case.
