Defending Bicycle Accident Victims
A bicyclist holds similar rights to the roadway as the drivers of other vehicles do. However, the truck that may have just hit you might not see it that way. What can you do if it seems like the insurance company agrees with him? What’s next?
After an accident, we are ready to support you with the aggressive representation you need. We have experience with the relevant laws to establish your right to the road and your right to a settlement.
Fatal and non-fatal crash-related injuries to bicyclists resulted in lifetime medical costs and productivity losses of $10 billion.

Factors That Cause Bicycle Accidents
Doors opening on the street
Disobeying traffic laws
Failure to use proper lane
Bicycle accidents can be incredibly dangerous and potentially deadly. Often times, the only piece of protective clothing you will have on is your helmet. Medical bills for bicycle accidents stack up quickly, especially when you consider the possible effects:
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injury
- Traumatic brain injury
Very professional and helpful pleasant staff. Would recommend highly.
