Personal injuries due to bicycle accidents are more common than many people think. It’s not just a matter of ‘hitting’ something while on your bike. Crashes, of course, do happen.
In many cases, bike accidents are caused by negligence. If your accident involves a collision with a vehicle, it could simply be a matter of that driver not paying attention in the way they should have. If someone else is responsible for the injuries you have sustained while on your bike, you need to know your rights.
It is important to consider ‘no-fault’ benefits. If you have suffered an injury involving a motor vehicle, regardless of fault, these accident benefits will be triggered. If someone (a driver) is at fault, it’s their insurance company that must come forward to help pay for your additional expenses, including damages, injuries, lost wages, etc. Jeffrey will handle the responsibilities of dealing with an insurance company to get you the maximum benefits you deserve. It’s not about punishing the person at-fault, rather finding financial justice for your injuries and emotional loss.
Another reason it’s a good idea to have Jeffrey on your side? When it comes to bike accidents, as unfortunate as it may sound, you are probably in a minority. If your case has to come before a jury, there are stereotypical biases. We like to think they aren’t real, but you can never be 100% sure about how the people of the jury may be thinking. Chances are, not many of them ride bicycles frequently, but most of them drive cars.
As with most types of personal injury claims, it is important to act sooner rather than later. Don’t be afraid about bicycle bias, and don’t feel as though you won’t be able to win a case against a driver. The sooner you act, and the more proof of injury and losses you have, the stronger your case will be.
