Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Feeling Stressed After Your Bicycle Accident?
When bicycles share the road with regular cars, cyclists suffer the most in the event of a collision. Anyone who rides a bicycle on a regular basis, know all too well the danger they face as they cruise next to motor vehicles dozens of times their size and weight. Being hit by a 2-ton car can leave a bicyclist with severe injuries or even cause death in some unlucky victims.
Since bicyclists do not have airbags and seat belts to protect them, they are left vulnerable to injury and at risk of a long and expensive recovery. Hiring an experienced bicycle accident attorney with The Advocates is the best way to fully recover what you are owed for your injuries and losses. Our attorneys can help you get compensated for your medical bills, lost income and wages, property damage, and for the pain and suffering you’ve endured. What you need most after your accident is the help of an Advocate!
How a Bicycle Lawyer Can Help After Your Accident
Unfortunately, it is a common practice throughout the insurance industry for providers to train their adjusters to keep injury settlement offers as low as possible. In fact, insurance companies have been known to deny injury claims even when their policyholders were determined to be completely at fault. They will even go so far as to downplay the severity of a victim’s injuries and the total amount of time it takes to fully recover. Make no mistake. Insurance providers are in the business of making money so you shouldn’t expect them to put people like you ahead of their profits.
The best way to avoid being cheated out of fair settlement from the insurance companies is to hire an Advocate to represent your case. Our attorneys have decades of experience helping victims of bicycle accidents make the best recovery possible. We know all of the tricks and tactics insurance providers’ use to get out of paying their fair share. If they refuse to come to the negotiation table and play fair, our litigation team will file a lawsuit and we’ll take them court.
Here are just some of the ways The Advocates are ready to fight for your recovery:
- Help defer medical bills which could damage your credit
- Refer you to a network of medical specialists
- Recover wages lost after your accident
- Speak with your employer about time off
- Negotiate the best settlement possible
