California’s Bicycle Accident Lawyer Who Rides, and Knows What a Serious Accident Feels Like

My name is Scot Moga and I’m not just another California bike accident lawyer, I’m an avid cyclist that has been riding and touring my entire life. My father took my brother and I on a self-guided bicycle tour from Seattle, WA to San Diego, CA when I was all of 9 years old. I have competed in BMX racing as a kid, and currently compete in triathlons, mountain bike racing and many other events. Also, Moga Law Firm is a sponsor of the Tour de Foothills known as the Greatest Ride in Southern California. I have the unique perspective of being a seriously injured victim of a bike vs car collision where I was struck by a car going 50 mph with a distracted driver texting behind the wheel. I understand the fear that races through your head about other traffic trying to avoid you while lying on the ground, and the anxiety & medical care that follows. Lucky for me I survived and happen to be a personal injury lawyer with over 25 years of experience with the legal system, insurance negotiations and medical standards of care.

A Bike Accident Attorney Who Knows What You’re Going Through

Whether you or a family member were seriously injured, or if a family member was killed due to a negligent driver we can help you. As an experienced bike accident lawyer who’s gone through the trauma personally, I understand the terminology and intricacies of a cyclists behavior better than a personal injury lawyer who’s never been in a serious bicycle accident personally. Call me today at (909) 931-2444 to schedule a free, no obligation assessment of your matter with me personally and get your questions answered today.

Having been through a serious bike accident myself, and still an avid cyclist, I have a unique perspective and passion that few other lawyers possess.

  • Never rely on an insurance company to do the right thing or act quickly.
  • Don’t be afraid to hold your ground.
  • Don’t settle for a low ball offer.

Common Bike Accidents on California Streets

When bikes and scooters share the roads with cars, trucks and motorcycles accidents that would otherwise be minor can end up being serious or life-threatening. We’ve seen many types of accidents involving bicyclists including:

  • “Dooring” – When a car door opens and forces the rider to crash.
  • Right turn, no signal – This is when a driver speeds ahead of a cyclist only to make a right turn in front of them, effectively cutting them off and forcing a collision.
  • Right of way confusion – When a driver doesn’t know who has the right of way and drives erratic.
  • Distracted driving – When a driver’s head is buried in their phone, or fidgeting with the radio.
  • Road Rage – Some drivers often don’t respect the rights of cyclists, and purposely take out their aggression by ramming, or forcing a cyclist off the road.
  • Failure to yield – Some drivers often believe cyclists must yield to the motorist, and drive irresponsibly.

In many ways, cyclists have the same rights and responsibilities of other drivers, yet none of the protections. We understand this, and can help you prove your case.
