Bicycle accidents are caused by a variety of factors. Obstructed view, poorly maintained roads and paths, and even dog attacks all lead to bike accidents. It’s also not uncommon for a car, truck or bus accident to contribute to a bicycle accident.
We have extensive experience in bicycle accidents caused by:
- drivers unexpectedly turning into the path of a cyclist
- cars pulling out from a driveway in front of a cyclist
- drivers not sharing the road
- failure of a driver to yield at intersection
- a driver operating a vehicle while being under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- poorly maintained roads
- defective parts
- dog attacks
Studies have shown that settlements for injuries suffered in car accidents can be up to 30% higher than settlements for similar injuries suffered by cyclists. To be fully compensated, you need a personal injury lawyer that knows the law. The attorneys at our firm we have over twenty years of experience. We’ve seen thousands of cases and have represented both drivers and cyclists. This means that we know how much individual cases are worth, and we’ll use this knowledge to get you the best possible settlement.
This includes compensation for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and even future medical expense and rehabilitation services.
We can secure benefits and settlements for injury claims including:
- head, brain and spinal cord injury
- broken bones and fractures
- organ and nerve damage
- road rash
- wrongful death
