What Are Common Cycling injuries?
When a bicycle rider is struck by a vehicle, the injuries sustained can range from minor to life-changing.
Common injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Road rash
- Back injuries
- Leg injuries
These injuries can have long-lasting physical and emotional impacts, requiring extensive ongoing medical treatment, rehabilitation, and time away from work. If you were struck by a negligent motorist, a bicycle accident lawyer can help you pursue compensation from the negligent driver’s insurance company and ensure you receive every penny of compensation you’re owed.
How Can Injured Bicyclists Get Help After an Accident?
An experienced bicycle accident lawyer knows how to investigate this type of complex accident to prove liability. They will gather evidence such as photos of the accident scene, bike damage, and injuries, accident reports, video footage, medical records, and other vital evidence.
They will also help you file the appropriate paperwork and handle settlement negotiations.
Our attorneys are familiar with the tricks and tactics that claims adjusters will use to minimize payout or deny a claim. Our legal team will not back down and will not allow an insurance company to pressure a client into accepting a settlement that’s lower than what they deserve. Bicycle accidents can result in severe injuries that can require months or even years of medical treatment. Our bicycle accident attorneys will ensure you receive the compensation you need to help ease the financial burden the accident has had on you and your family.
