Possible compensation after bicycle accidents
Bicycle accidents often cause serious injuries. This is especially true when they involve a motor vehicle such as a car or large truck. Leg injuries, head injuries, and broken bones are common injuries from bicycle accidents. In these types of accidents, bicyclists are relatively unprotected in a collision. The difference in size between a bicycle and automobile can cause devastating damage to a bicyclist.
If you have been injured in a bicycle accident, you may be suffering from chest pain, leg pain or other symptoms. It is crucial you seek medical treatment if you have bruising after a bicycle accident or other signs of a potential injury. It’s also crucial that you get the legal attention you need to pursue the compensation you deserve. Compensation is possible for the following expenses:
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional anguish
- Lost wages
- Out-of-pocket expenses
- Personal property damage
We're here for you after your bicycle accident
Whatever the circumstances of your bicycle accident, an attorney at our law firm can talk to you about your legal options in this matter. We can help you file an insurance claim and deal with the insurance company, the other party involved in the accident, law enforcement and anyone else related to the case to help you seek a positive result.
When someone else is negligent or careless and causes you injury, as in the case of a bicycle accident, you have the right to take legal action against that person. For example, Bob may be driving down an Oakland city street. He reaches down to adjust the radio, taking his eyes off the road for just a few seconds. What he doesn't realize is that he has swerved from his lane directly into Jane, a bicyclist who was sharing the road at the right side of the street.
If Jane was hit by a car and injured in the collision, she may be able to hold Bob liable for her injuries. Bob's auto insurance policy would most likely be responsible for Jane's medical bills, damage to her bike, and any other injuries or damages she suffered as the result of the accident. Recovering this financial compensation would allow Jane to rebuild her life and move on without suffering the full consequences of the accident and Bob's negligence.
