Hawaii Bicycle Accident Attorney

Fighting for Injured Bicyclists Across the Hawaiian Islands

Bicycling is a popular form of exercise popular among locals and tourists alike. Because bicyclists are considered motorists in the eyes of the law, every rider has the same rights and responsibilities as drivers of motor vehicles. But even when riders do all they can to obey the rules of the road, they are often overlooked or harmed by negligent drivers.

At Bostwick & Peterson, LLP, our Hawaii bicycle accident lawyers fight for injured victims and families across Honolulu and the Hawaiian Islands. We’re led by two of the nation’s most respected trial lawyers, and have recovered more than $1 billion in compensation for clients.

Who is Liable for Your Bike Accident?

Bicycles have a legal right to share most roads with cars and trucks, but this right is often overlooked or violated by careless or negligent drivers, resulting in injuries or death for the cyclist.

As a victim, you may have the right to bring a civil claim against the responsible party and hold them liable for your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and other damages. However, you must prove that the defendant against whom you bring your claim was negligent in causing your accident or otherwise responsible.

Examples of things that can lead to liability for bicycle accidents:

  • Distracted or negligent drivers who fail to see cyclists in crosswalks or intersections
  • Failure to provide enough space when passing a bicyclist
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Defective products, bicycles, or bike parts
  • Negligent bike rental companies / failures to maintain rental bikes
  • Failure to provide appropriate safety gear
  • Dog bites or animal attacks
  • Property hazards that should have been repaired or replaced
  • Negligent tour guides who cause riders to crash to lead them into unsafe conditions

Bicycle accidents can have devastating consequences. With little protection, riders can suffer severe injuries, including road rash, broken bones, spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injury. In the worst cases, crashes have deadly outcomes.

Victims of bicycle accidents often require costly medical treatment, as well as recovery care. In addition, lost wages can have a serious impact on the livelihood of the victim's family.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a bicycle accident, having an experienced attorney can make the difference between having to pay the price for a driver's negligence and getting full compensation for your pain and suffering.
