Santa Clara County Agrees To Pay $800,000 for Wrongful Death of Bicyclist

As bicyclists, all were shocked in March 2008 to learn the horrible news that Santa Clara Sheriff’s Deputy James Council had crashed into several innocent bicyclists, causing the wrongful death of two riders, and badly injuring a third. As a bicycle accident attorney who handles many cases for riders against public entities, I was surprised and pleased when Santa Clara County actually accepted responsibility for this tragic bicycle crash. In tough economic times, it seems even more rare for individuals or institutions to accept liability, and extremely rare for them to make themselves financially accountable. We reported last month…

Bikes, California Law, and You

I was recently reminded that many California bicyclists are not well-versed in bike law. For example, many understand that a public entity would not be liable-that is, be responsible for personal injuries-to a person who participates in a hazardous recreational activity. (Govt. Code sec. 831.7(a).) Hazardous recreational activity is defined as bicycle racing or jumping, mountain biking and the like. However, what most may not know is that the public entity can be liable if it fails to warn of a dangerous condition, if the damage or injury occurred when permission to participate was granted for a specific fee, or…
