We also represent bicyclists injured in bicycle accidents. Our experience with motorcycle accidents helps us with bicycle accidents.
Proving a car or truck is at fault for causing a bicycle accident is similar to proving fault in a motorcycle accident. Most bicycle and motorcycle accidents occur because the driver never saw the motorcycle or the bicycle. If we can prove the driver did not see you, we can win the case before it ever gets to trial and you’ll be entitled to 9% interest.
Also common with bicycle accidents are hit and run accidents. If you have been injured in a hit-and-run bicycle accident, it is important that you call us before you speak to anyone including your own insurance company. However, we would like to represent you even if you already have given a statement, and even if other lawyers told you you don’t have a case.
Bicycle accidents, unlike motorcycle accidents, require that you have an injury that the court determines is serious, not what you or your doctor thinks is serious.
You need an attorney experienced in proving that an injury is serious. One of the best ways we have of proving your injury is serious is to bring an orthopedic surgeon with us to your medical exam conducted by the insurance company. Our orthopedic surgeon will write a report and be available to testify as to how the defendant’s insurance company doctor is distorting the truth.
See our article Bicycle Accidents at NewYorkSeriousInjuryAttorneys.com for a more detailed discussion about bicycle accidents.
If a family member was killed in a bicycle accident, we will provide the estate work for free for a wrongful death claim.
Bicyclists must file a no-fault application within 30 days of the bicycle accident. Because this is more difficult than with a car accident, it’s important to call an attorney immediately after your bicycle accident.
