Dealing with Bicycle Accidents
Although many cities in America are attempting to ensure the safety of cyclists by adding bike lanes to busy roads and posting warning signs for drivers, many automobile operators are still vastly unaware of the rights that bicyclists have on the road. Drivers who lack this awareness pose a serious threat to these cyclists, as their ignorance increases the chances of them striking a cyclist with their vehicles.
These types of accidents are incredibly dangerous, as bicycles do not provide protection in the event of a wreck. Even cyclists who utilize proper safety equipment, such as approved helmets and padding, can sustain major injuries during relatively minor collisions.
Filing Claims for Bicycle Accidents
Victims of any type of accident can attest to the all-encompassing destruction they can cause, as innocent individuals may suffer from physical, emotional, mental, or financial pain as a result of a wreck that they did not cause. Fortunately, cyclists who have been struck by negligent automobile drivers may be able to secure compensation for the following through a successful personal injury lawsuit:
- Personal Injuries
- Pain and Suffering
- Property Damages
- Lost Wages
- Lost Earning Potential
Financial compensation can clear the way for you to get on with the recovery process by removing anxiety over how you’ll pay your medical bills and help you secure the justice you are seeking.
