Bicycle Injuries Can Quickly Become Serious
Motorists have significantly more protection than cyclists, so when a collision occurs between the two, a cyclist’s injuries will likely be much more severe.
Injuries from bike accidents may include:
- Minor scrapes or bruises (“road rash”)
- Cuts or gashes requiring stitches
- Broken bones
- Neck and back injuries
- Brain and spinal cord injuries
Whether your bicycle accident injury was serious and life-altering or relatively minor, you have the right to seek compensation from the negligent party.
What Is Your Bicycle Injury Case Worth?
The worth of any personal injury case is based on a variety of factors. These include the nature of the injury-causing event, the severity of the injury you suffered, the amount of pain the injury caused, and whether the injury has lingering effects. Only after all the evidence is gathered and analyzed can the true value of your case be determined.
As our law firm works to determine the value of your claim, we will take the following issues into consideration:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost wages
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Mental and physical disability
- Disfigurement and scars
- Property damage
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of love and affection
Understanding Your Insurance Claims Options
Our firm has fought hard to help many individuals obtain full compensation for injuries caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing.
As a bicycle accident victim, you may be able to make insurance claims against:
- The other party’s car insurance
- Your car insurance (especially useful in hit-and-run accidents)
- Your homeowners or renters insurance
- Your medical insurance
You deserve an attorney who is dedicated to getting you the maximum possible compensation. You shouldn’t have to go into debt because of your medical bills or lost wages when your accident was caused by someone else.
