Are You Entitled To Damages For Injuries Suffered In A Bicycle Accident?

Bicycle Personal Injury And Legal Issues

When people have a bicycle accident, they may assume they have to fend for themselves, that there's nothing they can do. However, there are many legal issues people should be aware of related to a bicycle injury, including:

  • Accident liability issues
  • Documentation of expenses
  • Damages for pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Possible issues related to driving while under the influence
  • Issues with the road
  • Defective traffic control devices
  • Investigating hit and run accidents

At The Jasmer Law Firm, we have helped countless people over the years who have suffered emotional, physical and financial consequences related to bicycle accidents. Our experience gives us a unique perspective on issues facing injured bicyclists. We can help clients formulate the strongest legal argument possible to maximize their opportunity for success. We also handle much of the legal legwork, allowing our clients to focus on their recovery above all else.

Hire An Experienced Lawyer To Represent Your Interests

Without a doubt, people who are injured can find themselves overwhelmed with the prospect of navigating the legal system to obtain the financial recovery they are entitled to. The paperwork alone related to filing a claim or taking legal action can be overwhelming. When this challenge is combined with the financial stress of trying to pay for medical expenses — including ICU or surgical procedures — this leads to anxiety that people simply don't need.

For this reason, it is important for anyone who is injured while riding a bicycle to contact an experienced attorney for assistance. At The Jasmer Law Firm, we have developed an impressive track record of success through our unique blend of legal experience and innovation.
