Most bicycle accidents are caused by driver negligence, including:
Do not assume that you have a simple open-and-shut case if you were struck by a motor vehicle while riding your bike. The driver will likely be defended by an insurance defense attorney. Such attorneys are highly skilled at denying liability and minimizing the damages that accident victims receive.
The defendant may claim that you suddenly swerved into a driving lane or darted in front of him or her at a traffic light when the driver had a green light. The defendant may attempt to minimize your damages by arguing that you have exaggerated the extent of your injuries. There are many ways that accident victims are denied the full compensation they deserve.
Let us deal with the insurance companies on your behalf. We will negotiate with a firm resolve, and we will be fully prepared to take your case to trial if the insurance company is not willing to make a settlement offer that fully compensates you for your injuries and losses.
We are committed to your recovery. We vigorously pursue the maximum compensation on behalf of accident victims for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other forms of available relief. Let us put our experience to work for you.
