Can Bicycle Accident Victims Get Compensation?
When a bike rider is hit by a car, the injuries are often severe. The unfortunate reality is that there is not much to protect a bicyclist from the impact, so the result is often brain injury, spine injury, broken bones or another serious injury. Medical bills are going to be high. Wages are going to be lost. Both physical and financial recovery are going to be tough.

Our attorneys know that you do not want to engage in months or even years of litigation to get the money you need now, but you also do not want to settle for less than you deserve.

Results In All Types Of Bike Crash Claims
Bicycle accident cases come in many forms. A lot of them involve a negligent driver hitting a bicyclist. For example, a driver may turn in front of a bicyclist causing an accident.
In some cases, the bicyclist may actually hit the car, but the driver of the car may still be to blame. One of the most common types of bike crashes involves what is referred to as dooring. This is when the driver or passenger of a parked car opens the car door directly into the path of an oncoming bicyclist, causing a collision.
In other cases, there may be no actual collision between car and bike, because the bicyclist was forced to take evasive action in order to avoid hitting the car. Even if this is the case, if the driver of the car was negligent, the injured biker may still pursue compensation.
