Bicycle Accident Lawyer
According to a report published by People For Bikes, almost 50% of Americans want to ride their bikes more often. Nearly the same number of people also worry about being hit by a car. As more and more bicyclists take to the streets, states have responded by creating more bicycle lanes, and establishing laws that pertain specifically to bicyclists. Unfortunately, motorists don’t always give bicyclists the respect they deserve. In most states, bicyclists have essentially the same rights and responsibilities as any other vehicle driver. However, some motorists have been slow to recognize this.
The majority of bicycle accidents are caused by motorist negligence and distracted driving. Unlike an accident involving another vehicle, when a car strikes a bicyclist, the injuries sustained are often much more serious. Before you call the insurance agency, make sure to call someone who is going to advocate for you and help you get the compensation you deserve. Insurance companies will often try to avoid payment or only cover a small amount of your true expenses. A bicycle accident lawyer can help assess the extent of your injuries and the cost of all of your medical bills. They will also take into account whether or not you’ll be able to return to work when determining how much your case is worth. Don’t sell yourself short. You shouldn’t have to pay for another person’s negligence. Contact someone who can help.
