Injured in a Bicycle Accident Due to Potholes?
Potholes usually go unnoticed by a cyclist until it is too late to avoid them. Many bicyclists lose control of their bike and fall as a result of potholes. If you have been injured in a bicycle accident because of a pothole you might have grounds to file a claim. Some things to consider:
- You must show that the pothole caused your injuries,
- Identify who is responsible for the control and maintenance of the pothole,
- Whether it was negligently fixed,
- If the owner of the property knew or should have known that it was there and posed a hazard and did nothing.
Getting the answers to these questions could help you recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, or other damages. It is important to seek legal representation as going against the city might be difficult on your own and there are very specific statutes that limit the time you have to take action. Feel free to contact the San Diego injury lawyers at Acclaim Law Group if you have additional questions.
