Bicycle accident injuries can range from a few bumps and bruises to fractured bones and even fatal injuries. Many bicycle accidents are caused by the motorist’s failure to share the road with a cyclist. After an accident it is important to know your rights and also understand the rights of a cyclist on the road. You can file a lawsuit against the negligent party to recover damages if you or a family member was injured or killed due to the negligence or fault of a motorist or other party. (Other parties might include: product manufacturers – if the accident was caused by a defective product; the City, County or State responsible for maintaining the road – if the accident was caused by a dangerous condition created by an unsafe roadway; repair shops or mechanics – if the accident was caused by negligent repair of equipment).
At Power Law Group we understand that bicycling is a popular sport for both exercise and leisure. However, if you have fallen victim to an accident while riding your bicycle, you may feel hesitant to continue to share the road with cars and trucks. We want to help you after a bicycle accident occurs, but we also feel it is necessary to educate our clients about precautions to take to prevent accidents from occurring.
