More and more people are riding bicycles. They provide an economical and environmentally friendly form of transportation. However, negligence on the part of automobile drivers, poor road conditions, or defective equipment can lead to bicycle accidents. According to the National Highway Safety Transportation Statistics, 9 fatal bicycle accidents occurred in Tennessee during 2010, and 52,000 bicyclists were injured across the country.
Bicyclists are put in a vulnerable position on the road. They have only a helmet for protection, and at times get treated with careless disregard by motorists. Most bicycle accidents occur as a result of drivers not even seeing the victim. Despite this, the other party may still claim the accident was your fault. Our attorneys will counter such arguments.
Injuries from bicycle accidents tend to be severe even in low-impact collisions. Bicyclists are often caught off guard and have little to no chance of avoiding an impending accident.
We Will Be Your Voice When You or a Loved One Has Been Injured in a Bicycle Accident
If you have been the victim of a bicycle accident, you need an experienced bicycle attorney on your side. A thorough investigation conducted early on is vital to the success of your case. As time goes on, physical evidence can fade away and memories of witnesses can also deteriorate. This makes it imperative to gather all relevant materials as soon as possible. In cases involving bicycle accidents, this might mean riding through the scene of the accident on both a bicycle and in a car in order to comprehend the way the accident took place. It may also involve interviewing witnesses and police officers with regard to their recollections and findings. In some cases, we may also want to photograph the scene, hire accident reconstruction experts, obtain police reports, and more.
To get you the maximum compensation that you deserve, we will gather all your medical reports in order to prove the nature and extent of your injuries. Where appropriate, we will also hire economists, therapists, doctors, and other experts to assist in proving your case.
So that you can focus on your recovery, we will deal with the insurance company of the at-fault party. The paperwork and negotiations can be a hassle, but we are familiar with handling them.
