Bicyclists have every right to be treated safely and respectfully by the drivers of larger vehicles. If you have been hit by a car while riding a bike, you may be legally entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Carefully Investigating the Facts of Your Case
Drivers often try to deny responsibility by blaming bicyclists for causing accidents. The driver who hit you may claim that you "came out of nowhere" or were violating a traffic rule. In order to counteract these claims, your lawyer will need to conduct a careful investigation.
Our firm works with private investigators, accident reconstructionists and other experts to investigate and document the things drivers do to cause bike accidents, including the following:
- Running a stop sign or stoplight
- Failing to yield the right of way
- Swerving onto the shoulder
- Making a wide-angle turn carelessly
Because bicyclists are relatively unprotected, bicycle accidents often result in catastrophic injuries such as brain and spinal cord injuries. Our attorneys also work with experienced life care planners and economists to calculate the full damages our clients are entitled to.
