Bicycle Accidents: Who’s Liable?
Just like driving a car can be dangerous, bicyclists, too, are at risk of being in an accident. Keep in mind that bicyclist’s share the road with other drivers, and in most cases, those other drivers aren’t paying attention to bikes riding near them.
Being in a bicycle accident can be devastating, if not deadly, and although the at-fault party may be to blame, insurance companies will more than likely refuse to acknowledge that. The bicycle accident attorneys at the Advocates can help you understand your case. The main focus of our bicycle accident lawyers is to help you determine liability and build you the strongest bicycle accident claim possible.
Making a Bicycle Accident Claim
If you’ve suffered serious injuries due a bike accident, you may be entitled to a settlement. A few ways you could be entitled to settlement is if the at-fault party committed the following:
- Speeding, reckless or aggressive driving
- Was aware of poorly maintained or paved streets
- Intoxicated at the time of the bike accident
- Was an obstruction to the bike path (parked cars, cars in the bike lane, etc.)
Filing a bicycle accident claim can be difficult to process by yourself, which is why you should call our bicycle accident lawyers for a FREE consultation. Our bicycle accident attorneys can help you file a bike accident claim and restore your life to what it was before the accident.
