Will An Attorney Be Helpful For This Case?

When a bicycle accident occurs, the injured cyclist often faces unwarranted pushback from the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Your attorney will be responsible for thoroughly investigating the incident by obtaining all evidence from the scene, including police reports, photographs and video, as well as eyewitness statements.

Your attorney will also ensure that a trusted medical expert reviews your records and assesses the full extent of your injuries. This will help to properly determine the extent of your losses.

Why Are Bicycle Accidents So Devastating?

In a bicycle versus vehicle accident, there is a high risk of injury to the bicyclist. Even when a bicyclist is wearing a helmet, there is little protection from the force of a vehicle. It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries as a result of a bike crash:

  • Traumatic brain injuries or other head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries and possible paralysis
  • Internal organ damage or internal bleeding
  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates, there are around 500,000 bicycle rider injuries each year in the US. In many cases, these incidents are caused by reckless or negligent drivers. All too often, drivers fail to yield the right-of-way to bicyclists.

Bicyclists are also vulnerable to poorly maintained roadways. Governments and agencies responsible for roadway maintenance should perform regular inspections and fix known problems as quickly as possible.
