Bicycle vs. Car Accidents
Car Accident Lawyer
Every year over 78,000 bicycle riders and pedestrians are seriously injured in collisions with motor vehicles. The injuries inflicted upon the bicyclists from these accidents are numerous, including broken bones, abrasions, cuts, friction burns, amputation, brain injuries, coma, head trauma, broken teeth, and death.
When a bike rider is struck by the negligent driver of a motor vehicle, it is the responsibility of that driver’s insurance company to pay you compensation for the bills and expenses you will have to pay due to your accident. A car accident attorney from our firm has many years of experience working with bicycle riders who have been the victim of collisions with cars that weigh much more and travel much faster than the bicycles do. If you are a bicyclist who has suffered serious injuries due to the negligence of a motor vehicle driver, call our firm right away.
Bicycle Riders Have Equal Rights
Many drivers do not believe that bicycle riders have and are protected by the same rights as those afforded to other motor vehicle drivers. For this reason, bicyclists may even appear to be “invisible” to these drivers. Sometimes drivers may simply ignore them. When this occurs, it is more likely there will be a collision between the vehicle driver and the bicycle rider. Of course, when there is a car or truck involved, the bike rider’s injuries will commonly be more severe than if the collision was between two bicycles.
Our firm is dedicated to protecting your rights when negotiating with insurance companies who want to give you less compensation than you are entitled to, and who try to take advantage of your physical pain and emotional state of mind to hurry up and settle your case. Our skilled legal team is committed to protecting your rights and recovering the damages you will need to pay for your medical treatment, lost wages, rehabilitation and other expenses.Contact a car accident attorney today for a no charge initial consultation.
