Bicycle accidents are a growing problem. Let our personal injury attorneys help you.
Bicycling is becoming a more and more common mode of transportation as gas prices go up and environmental concerns grow. With the proliferation of more bikes on the roadways, some states have encouraged drivers of motor vehicles to “Share the Road”. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case in some bicycle accidents and people are hurt or even killed. These accidents can diminish a once favorite hobby and prevent people from enjoying their day to day activities. If you or a loved one has been injured in a bicycle-auto accident, the personal injury attorneys at the Law Firm of www.needaninjuryattorneyidaho.com are here for you. Unlike most law firms, we focus on personal injury cases, so that our experience and expertise can work for you.
These accidents are often devastating because of the fact that bicyclists have less protection from the road and elements than motor vehicle drivers. What can be considered a minor accident by most motor vehicle standards can have debilitating consequences for bicyclists.
If you were in one of these accidents, you might have already been approached by an insurance company, offering you quick cash that simply WON’T cover all your expenses. This is in their best interest and not yours. Insurance companies work on the rule that they will give you the lowest amount of money as possible, which does not take into account all of your economic factors. Some of these factors can include:
- Medical bills
- Loss of wages
- Loss of job
- Property damage
- Compensation for pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment
The insurance company will NOT offer you what you deserve for what has happened to you. After receiving medical attention, the next important step is to contact the personal injury attorneys at the Law Firm of www.needaninjuryattorneyidaho.com so that you can be aware of all your options.
Most people who have been injured in bicycle-auto accidents do not want to sue anyone; instead, they only want fair compensation for the injuries they have suffered. Each of our clients is treated individually and we take the time to understand what it is that you need and how you want to seek out damages. As a result of some cases, we are able to settle some cases out of court.
It is critical that you hire an attorney that knows the ins and outs of the bicycle laws of Idaho. Our years of experience and expertise handling these cases and representation will work on your behalf to make sure that you are given a fair settlement. We communicate with the insurance company so that you don’t have to and you can focus on recovering.
If you or a loved one has been involved in one of these accidents, the most important step is to get medical attention right away.
