Bike riders and cycling enthusiasts bear an unfair burden on today’s roads and highways—particularly when car and truck drivers don’t drive carefully. With just a bike helmet and quick reflexes as protection, cyclists often suffer severe injuries when a car makes a sudden stop or a truck turns into their path. And, sadly, many bicycle accident victims are children.
If you have been seriously injured in a cycling accident or while biking on dangerous property, or a loved one has died in a bicycle collision with a motor vehicle, you may have a right to financial compensation.
Settle Too Quickly and You May Be Settling for Less
We understand the physical and financial challenges you are facing right now, particularly if you’ve suffered a serious head injury. It’s tempting to just accept the offer the insurance company is making so you can pay the bills and get on with the work of recovery.
But, before you accept any compensation from an insurance company, talk to one of our lawyers to better understand your rights under the law. Once you’ve accepted the insurance company settlement for injuries from a bicycle accident, you can’t go back and ask for more money—even if you discover that your medical bills or therapy is going to cost more.
When you hire us, we’ll make it our job as your personal injury attorney to look out for both your short-term and long-term best interests. Be sure to reach out to us before you talk to your insurance company.
Financial Recovery after a Cycling Accident
If the car, truck, or motorcycle driver who injured you didn’t exercise “reasonable care under the circumstances,” then they are guilty of negligence in your bike accident. We can help you obtain the compensation you deserve, including:
- Past medical expenses and ongoing therapy.
- Lost wages in the past and loss of income potential in future.
- Pain, suffering, and other damages caused by your injuries.
