California E-Bike Accident Lawyers
Attorneys pursue maximum compensation in cases involving electric bike injuries
Riding a bicycle in California can be difficult, especially if you need to be somewhere on a schedule. This is one of the reasons that residents throughout the state have opted for electric bicycles that supplement the rider’s pedal power. Some e-bikes travel at a speed greater than 20 miles per hour, and without the protection afforded to someone inside a car or truck, an accident can leave a rider with debilitating injuries. The experienced California lawyers at Mastagni Holstedt, APC handle all types of accident claims for clients in the Sacramento area and statewide. If you’ve been hurt in a crash involving an e-bike, we’ll advise you of your legal options and work to collect the payment you need to cover healthcare costs, lost income and other effects of your accident.
Common causes of e-bike crashes
An e-bike accident can happen at any time, but certain conditions make a serious injury more likely. In heavy traffic and dark conditions, drivers might not recognize that a rider is nearby. Distractions such as cell phones and dashboard screens also limit a motorist’s ability to see a biker. There are instances where a third party, rather than the driver or cyclist, is responsible for a crash. This can occur when debris or a poorly maintained road causes someone on an e-bike to swerve suddenly. We retain experts and carefully analyze evidence to pinpoint exactly what led to the crash.
Attorneys assert the legal rights of riders who have been hurt
If you’ve been hurt in an e-bike collision, you should contact our personal injury lawyers as soon as possible. We will immediately start the process of gathering the information necessary to prove that the driver’s negligence caused the crash. This might require witness interviews, document requests, the collection of physical evidence and sworn depositions. In many cases, motorists and their insurance companies agree to a fair settlement amount when they see how strong the case is against them. If that does not occur, we will proceed toward trial. Our attorneys are accomplished litigators who present persuasive cases to juries and push back hard against defense attempts to evade liability for the harm they caused.
Damages available in an e-bike accident claim
We fight for victims of e-bike injuries so that they can receive maximum compensation through a verdict or settlement for damages such as:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income
- Damage to an e-bike and other property
- Physical pain stemming from the accident
- Emotional distress

- Loss of bodily function
- Diminished enjoyment of life
From your first meeting with us, we will review the relevant circumstances and draw on our knowledge of accident cases to provide an honest assessment of the type of compensation you can expect.
