There are definitely more details that would need to be reviewed before determining who was to blame, but it sounds like the driver could have been at fault.  When an accident, such as the one you described, is the result of the other person’s negligence, you can pursue compensation.

Have your wife write down everything she can remember about the bicycle accident.  It would be wise to contact a bicycle accident lawyer who can help you investigate your case.  An attorney will be able to review witness testimony, the police report and other information pertaining to the collision to determine if you have a claim against the driver.

An experienced Orange County bicycle accident attorney from our office will be more than happy to talk to you about your case.  We represent cases throughout California, including Irvine.
