How An Attorney Can Help After A Bicycle Crash
There are going to be many things happening at once after a bicycle crash. Your priority needs to be recovering from your injuries. Your attorney can handle everything else, including:
- Gathering all police reports related to the incident
- Obtaining evidence such as surveillance footage and witness statements
- Having the crash scene reconstructed if necessary
- Gathering your medical records and calculating your economic and non-economic losses
Bicycle crashes usually involve communicating with multiple parties, including insurance companies who are not looking out for your best interests. Your attorney will handle all communications so you do not have to.
Bicycle Crashes Are Particularly Dangerous
Bicyclists are vulnerable in and around the roadway. Even when a rider is wearing a helmet, they have almost no protection from the force of a passenger vehicle slamming into them. It is not uncommon for us to represent clients with the following injuries after a bike crash:
- Spinal cord trauma (possible paralysis)
- Head injuries/traumatic brain injuries
- Internal organ damage or internal bleeding
- Broken or dislocated bones
- Severe lacerations or road rash
For the latest reporting year in the US, there were nearly 800 bicyclist fatalities and thousands of severe injuries as a result of crashes. In many cases, these injuries occur due to the actions of a negligent driver (drunk driving, distracted driving, failure to yield, and more).
