Interest in cycling is continuously rising, and with good reason: it’s a great form of exercise, it’s good for the environment and it’s less expensive than gasoline. However, the downside is that even the most bicycle friendly cities have issues with motorists hitting cyclists. This typically happens because the car, truck or motorcycle driver is not paying close enough attention to their surroundings.
Unfortunately, being hit by a large vehicle while riding a bike can cause life-altering injuries, even if you are wearing a helmet. If you’ve been injured by no-fault of your own, contact a Santa Barbara bike accident lawyer to schedule your free consultation.
Approximately 115 cyclists are injured or killed on Santa Barbara’s roads each year. With more than 91,100 residents in the city limits and an estimated 220,000 in the contiguous urban area, it is no wonder that there are so many automobile incidents. This problem becomes exacerbated by commuter and tourist traffic because these individuals are less familiar with their surroundings and are therefore more likely to accidentally hit a cyclist.
You can easily find several personal injury attorneys who specialize in cyclist accidents, but this alone is not enough to give you the best possible chance at winning your case. Instead, it is wise to look for an experienced legal team that has proven that it gets solid results. The May Firm is proud your legal team, and our results and knowledge speak for itself.
To date, we have been on the winning side of lawsuits that have amassed a combined millions in damages, including a few solo cases that were settled for $1 million or more. Additionally, we are pleased to have been honored by the local legal industry with several awards for customer service, a high winning percentage and receiving large settlements for our clients.

Our entire team embraces this philosophy, and we also firmly believe in the importance of integrity. Your family will be treated with compassion, kindness and respect. Our lawyers are from the Central Coast region, and they are ready to fight for your rights.

Often wrongful blame is placed on the rider in a multi-vehicle collision due to the increased risk that comes with riding a motorcycle. Insurance companies are reluctant to side with the motorcyclist and oftentimes will attempt to place the full or partial blame on them. Don’t accept that blame and the legal repercussions that come with it.
Call (866) 619-6679 to schedule a free consultation with our award-winning motorcycle accident lawyers. We’ll help determine the viability of your case based on your testimony and help you determine the best way to proceed. Working on a contingency fee means our lawyers are only compensated when your case or settlement is won, and our extensive experience and case history allow us to settle most claims out of court, giving you a faster resolution to your case and allowing you to focus on your recovery process. We factor in every possible expense when building your settlement: Medical bills, wage loss, property damage, and emotional suffering are all considered. Our goal is to help you put your life back in order to the best of our ability.
