Dog Attack on Bicycle Rider on Hidden Valley Road in Watsonville, Calif.

Bicyclist Injured in Dog Attack, Crash on Hidden Valley Road

 Dog Attack on Bicycle Rider on Hidden Valley in Watsonville, Calif.WATSONVILLE, Calif. (Sept. 22, 2022) —  A dog attack on a man riding a bicycle caused the rider to crash in front of 401 Hidden Valley Road Thursday morning in Watsonville.

The incident took place about 9 a.m. on Sept. 22nd, according to the CHP.

The victim was riding a bicycle at speeds estimated to be about 25 to 30 miles per hour down a hill when the large black dog ran out towards him, according to the California Highway Patrol. The bicyclist crashed and skidded off the roadway and both the rider and the dog were injured.

Paramedics responded to the victim’s residence and transported the injured man to Natividad Medical Center in Salinas for treatment of extensive injuries. The CHP report stated the person may require surgery. The report did not provide the victim of the dog attack‘s name or age.

The dog’s owner told authorities the “dog got in the rider’s way and caused him to go down,” but their story was different than the rider who claims the dog “attacked him,” police said.

The report stated the dog also suffered injuries in the incident, but there are no further details.

Investigators are working on the case.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.

You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case.
