Bicycle Accidents

The vast majority of U.S. cities and roadways are set up for motor vehicles, not for bicycles. With biking becoming more popular, bicycle accidents are becoming more common. Cars and trucks are supposed to share the road with cyclists, but this does not always happen, and serious injuries can be the result.

So we have the experience necessary to stand up to the negligent party and his or her insurance company on your behalf. The firm has taken on some of the largest insurance companies in the country. For a free consultation to discuss how we may be of help to you, contact the firm online today.

The Need For Full Compensation After A Bike Accident

Bicyclists are particularly vulnerable in collisions with motor vehicles. Bikes offer no protection to the rider in a crash. During an accident with a car or truck, a cyclist may suffer injuries such as:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Lacerations and scarring
  • Broken bones and amputations
  • Death

These types of injuries may lead to disfigurement and permanent disability. In the most serious accidents, the cyclist may suffer fatal injuries.

The recovery time from catastrophic injuries may take months or years. The injury victims and their families will need a considerable amount of compensation to cover their medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. You can count on our team to fully value all of your losses so you have the best chance of recovering the amount of compensation you need. We work with experts in areas such as economics, life-care planning and medicine to ensure all of our clients' needs will be met.
