Injured in a bicycle accident? Need an attorney?
Does this sound all too familiar?
“I was out riding after work and had a green light at the intersection. I saw a car slowing on my right as if it would stop, but just as I reached the intersection, the car pulled out in front of me and I hit the side hard. I flew over the hood and ended up with a broken clavicle, cracked ribs and severe road rash. My Specialized S-works bike is trashed. The driver’s insurance company is trying to tell me I’m partially at fault and I’ll have to cover my own medical costs, which included an ambulance and ER visit. Can you help me?”
Get Experienced Legal Help NOW From Personal Injury Attorneys Who Cycle!
With road cycling becoming more popular, an increasing number of lawful cyclists are finding themselves on the receiving end of an accident involving inattentive or aggressive drivers. Unfortunately, the insurance companies see cyclists as part of the problem and do very little to help injured cyclists recover their full costs from an accident.
At Craig Swapp & Associates, we understand both personal injury law and cycling. The law is clearly on the side of the law-abiding cyclists, and motorists are expected to be aware of and to stay clear of a cyclist who is riding in his lane legally.
As you may be already experiencing, insurance companies routinely treat injured cyclists unfairly. Adjustors deliberately confuse the issues of liability, cost of repairing or replacing the damaged bike, or the extent of injuries. Their aim is to delay or deny the injured cyclist a full and fair settlement.
If you were injured in a bike crash with a vehicle through no fault of your own, we’ll help you get a fair and full settlement to:
- Pay your medical bills
- Reimburse you for lost income
- Repair or replace your bike
- Replacement of any damaged accessories, including damaged helmets, sunglasses, cycling clothing, computers, etc.
- Compensate you for pain and suffering associated with your recovery
Unfortunately, bicycle accidents can also be fatal and we represent spouses and other family members for wrongful death cases.
We also look at cycling accidents caused by defective bike components, such as the frame, fork, wheels, etc. By examining the physical evidence, we and our engineering experts can help determine if there was a design or manufacturing defect that led to the failure. We’ll also examine if there was a failure to warn users of the defect.
