Bike riders and cycling enthusiasts bear an unfair burden when car and truck drivers do not drive carefully. With so little protection beyond a bike helmet and their quick reflexes, cyclists often suffer severe injuries when a car makes a sudden stop or a truck turns into their path. Sadly, many bicycle accident victims are children.
If you have been seriously injured or a loved one has died in a bicycle collision with a motor vehicle or a cycling accident on a dangerous property, you may have a right to financial compensation.
Settle too Quickly and You’ll Be Settling for Less
We understand the physical and financial challenges you are facing right now, particularly if you suffered a serious head injury. It’s tempting to just accept the offer the insurance company is making so you can pay the bills and get on with the work of recovery. But before you accept any offer from the insurance company, talk to a lawyer to be sure you understand your rights under the law. Once you have accepted the insurance company settlement for injuries from a bicycle accident, you cannot go back and ask for more money when you discover that your medical bills or therapy is going to cost more. It’s the job of your personal injury attorney to look out for your short-term and long-term best interests. It’s the job of the insurance company to pay out as little as possible. Please talk to us first.
