Helping Bicyclists Get An Equal Footing
Bicycle riders do not always get the benefit of the doubt in car accidents. When it comes down to the word of the driver or the word of the cyclists, many people find the driver more credible – even if it was his or her fault. If you are a bicyclist who suffered an injury in an accident, you can work with our team at [nap_names id=”FIRM-NAME-1″] to protect your rights.
At [nap_names id=”FIRM-NAME-1″], we help cyclists take back the benefit of the doubt. Our attorneys work hard to tell your story, advocate for your best interests and ensure you make wise legal decisions. We can help you hold negligent drivers accountable and recover compensation for your damages.
What Are Some Common Injuries In Bike Accidents?
Many bicycle accidents result in mild injuries: scrapes, skinned knees and twisted ankles. But other accidents, especially those involving cars, cause serious injuries that can last a lifetime. Some of the most common catastrophic injuries that result from bicycle crashes include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Bone fractures
- Severe lacerations
- Internal bleeding
- Road rash
In the direst cases, a rider may even die from a crash. If you are the surviving relative of a cyclist who suffered a wrongful death, then [nap_names id=”FIRM-NAME-1″] can help you pursue justice for your loved one.
We Will Do Whatever It Takes
There is nothing we will not do to recover compensation for our clients or hold perpetrators responsible for their actions. Often, we can work with the other party and their insurance company to reach a private agreement. In other cases, we will file a lawsuit and pursue your case at trial.
