Bicyclists suffer an alarming number of severe injuries and fatalities from bike accidents involving motor vehicles. We all know that bicycle riders do not always get the respect and courtesy they deserve on the road.
The attorneys at the Brady Law Group represent cyclists who have been injured or killed by motorists who have failed to check their blind spots, make turns directly in front of oncoming bicyclists, sideswipe them, open doors in front of them, drive under the influence of drugs and or alcohol.
The Brady Law Group hires only the top accident reconstruction experts to prove that the defendant or defendants in your case are at fault and the Brady Law Group will settle for no less than the maximum amount of compensation. A motorist who injures a cyclist may be held liable for a wide variety of damages, including:
- Past and future medical and rehabilitation costs
- Lost earnings and earning potential
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Emotional distress
- Loss of parental or spousal financial support
- Loss of spousal relations
- Property damage
- Incidental expenses
- Other types of physical, economic and sometimes even punitive damages that result from the accident
Don't make the decision to take on your case alone without speaking with one of our bicycle injury lawyers at the Brady Law Group. The standard operating procedure for insurance companies in bicycle accident cases is to lead the victim to believe he or she will be fairly compensated, but then, they take advantage of the victim by taking a recorded statement, having him or her see their doctors and methodically building a case against the bike accident victim while making him or her feel like they are taking care of him or her. In the end, the insurance company gives you an unfairly low settlement amount. Don't let the insurance company do this to you. Hire a bicycle accident attorney from the reputable personal injury law firm of the Brady Law Group and avoid this financially devastating pitfall. If you do talk to an insurance agent from the insurance company of the motorist, do not allow yourself to be recorded and definitely do not sign any documents. If at all possible avoid communication with the insurance company and let the legal professionals at the Brady Law Group handle everything for you.
