Causes of Bicycle Accidents

With a profile smaller than that of a passenger car, bicyclists are in constant danger of being overlooked by others. Inattentive drivers cause accidents when they:

  • pull out from an alleyway or driveway into a bicyclist,
  • turn across a bicyclist’s path,
  • open the door into a bicyclist, or
  • blow through a traffic light or stop sign.

Additionally, drivers who do not leave enough room when passing a bicyclist may also be to blame for a collision.

Road designs that conceal oncoming bicyclists also contribute to accidents. Narrow lanes and a lack of lighting are two common factors in collisions between cars and bicyclists.

Bicycle Accident Injuries

In a collision between a car and a bicycle, the driver rarely faces any injury. Bicyclists, on the other hand, can suffer serious injuries like:

  • Facial lacerations
  • Leg fractures
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury

Serious disability or disfigurement requires accident victims to ask for long-term compensation to pay for continuing losses and challenges. Make sure you speak with an attorney before accepting a settlement, or you may not receive the compensation you deserve.

How A Lawyer Can Help Your Accident Claim

Filing a lawsuit for compensation is a complex process, and insurance adjusters often use the claimant’s lack of experience with the system against them. Retaining an attorney means having a professional to watch out for equivocation and unfair settlement offers.

Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen can take care of:

  • Investigating your accident
  • Gathering and preserving evidence
  • Completing and filing paperwork
  • Handling phone calls and following up on your claim with the insurance adjuster
  • Calculating the true worth of your claim (it’s usually much higher than the insurance adjuster tells you)
  • Negotiating your settlement

We’re prepared to take your case to trial if an insurance adjuster refuses to give you the settlement you deserve. We do everything we can to maximize each client’s claim and facilitate its prompt payment. With Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen on your side, you will be able to spend more time resting and recovering from your injuries.

Helping Injured Bicyclists Find Justice

We are dedicated to using the law to protect those who were injured by another party’s negligence. Bicyclists deserve safety just as much as any other vehicle. By filing an accident lawsuit, you can hold a driver accountable for not sharing the road.

Our attorneys work closely with each client to create a strategy based on individual needs. Each case is backed by an entire team of legal investigators, paralegals, and support staff, led by one of our skilled trial attorneys. We understand choosing the right law firm to represent you is a big decision, which is why we invite you to meet us at no obligation. Our team can help you understand your legal options and show you the difference skilled representation can make.

When the patient returned home the next day, he died of a pulmonary embolism due to the blood clot that was initially suspected by the family.
