We Fight Bicycle Accident Claims Anywhere in the Nation
Helping Severely Injured Bicyclists Secure Fair Compensation
Bicyclists have all the same rights as any driver while on the road, but all too often, people in motor vehicles ignore, fail to see, or infringe on the right of way of bicyclists. For these drivers, the chance of causing an accident may seem a small price to pay given their relative unlikeliness to end up with any injuries. For bicyclists, however, these collisions can result in lasting disabilities.
Our team at Athea Trial Lawyers fights for those who were injured by careless drivers. Bicyclists deserve safe roads and, when that right is denied, they deserve full support as they pursue justice. If you were seriously or catastrophically injured in a bicycle accident, our team can help you determine who was liable and file a claim against that party. Our lawyers can handle everything from submitting paperwork to taking phone calls to negotiating a fair settlement that will fully cover your needs.
We help the victims of serious bicycle accidents anywhere in the nation. Call us today at (800) 664-0161 to get started with your free consultation.
Damages You Can Recover After a Bicycle Accident
Serious bicycle accidents can lead to expenses that stretch far into the future. Accident victims are eligible to recover compensation for all damages, not just the ones they already have bills or receipts for. However, calculating the true worth of your claim takes the experience of a team that’s done this before.
When accidents cause injuries that will have lasting effects, the immediate damages are likely to be only a fraction of the full costs a patient will face. Our team works with medical professionals and life care planners to calculate:
- Medical bills
- Future medical needs
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Accommodations and assistance
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Decreased quality of life
When making a catastrophic injury claim, your attorney must be prepared to thoroughly investigate your case and circumstances. These claims can vary greatly from one patient to the next.
We Can Handle All Types of Bicycle Accident Claims
Whether your accident was rather straightforward or the cause and at-fault party are hard to determine, our team has the resources and skill to fight for you.
Accidents Caused by Negligent Drivers
Most bicycle accidents are caused by driver errors like turning into the path of an oncoming bicyclist or failing to leave enough room when passing. To file a claim, you must be able to show the majority of fault rested with the driver who hit you. Our attorneys can gather evidence like witness statements, footage from dash or surveillance cams, and photos of the scene and vehicles to reconstruct your accident and present a compelling case.
Accidents Caused by Vehicle or Bicycle Malfunctions
When a car, truck, motorcycle, or bicycle fails—for example, due to a malfunction of brakes, steering, or other fundamental parts—anyone injured by the resulting accident can bring a claim against the manufacturer of the faulty vehicle or part. In some cases, other parties like distributors or mechanics may also be liable.
However, the first step in making such a claim is being able to prove the existence of the dangerous defect. This often requires an in-depth investigation undertaken side by side with engineers and industry experts. Only firms with serious resources and a wide network of professional consultants will be able to launch such inquiries. Athea Trial Lawyers has everything necessary to help with this type of case.
Accidents Caused by Faulty Road Design or Maintenance
Bicyclists are especially dependent on roads that make it easy for drivers to see them (and for them to see drivers). Traveling on two often thin wheels, they are also more likely to be affected by roads that have fallen into disrepair. If your accident was caused by one of these factors, you likely have the right to file a claim. You will just have to do so against the government entity responsible for the road.
While such claims are different than typical accident lawsuits, we support plaintiffs who bring them because a successful resolution often includes repairs to bring the road in line with standards that will keep everyone safer. Ask our attorneys to learn more about how to bring a suit against your local government.
