Proving Fault and Demonstrating the Full Impact of Injuries

We know how to prove negligence and pursue all sources of financial compensation to help you pay medical expenses, recover lost wages and deal with other aspects of the aftermath of a bicycle accident resulting in serious personal injury or untimely death.
Patient and Helpful to You, but Prepared to Fight the Opposition
Our bicycle accident lawyers understand traffic laws, different forms of insurance and how to show fault in a bicycle accident. Essentially, as long as a bicyclist keeps proper lookout, he or she has the same rights as all other drivers on the road. Even if your accident was with an electric scooter, you may have a case.
You may have a valid claim against the driver’s liability insurance – or a homeowners uninsured motorist policy of your own – after a bike accident that:
- Involves your child or any other vulnerable person not licensed to drive a car
- Occurs when a car pulls out of an alley without yielding properly, striking a bicycle on the street or sidewalk
- Can be attributed to distracted driving, intoxicated driving or a variety of other circumstances
