Protect Your Interests with a Lawyer!
A serious bicycle injury is, unfortunately, a common occurrence in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that cyclists face a greater risk of injuries related to a crash than other travelers. This risk is due in part to the scarce protection for cyclists when they are sharing the road with cars. In 2013, the CDC estimated 494,000 emergency department visits due to injuries sustained while riding a bicycle. While helmets have proven effective in preventing brain injuries when crashing, other parts of the body are exposed. Bicycle accidents are more likely to happen in areas that lack the appropriate designated areas such as bike lanes. Data collected in 2010 shows bike crashes led to lifetime medical costs of $10 billion. For victims, an accident can cause all sorts of injuries. These injuries are usually unexpected and can put some people in financial difficulty. When this occurs, you deserve someone who will fight for you.
Our firm is unique because:
• PEOPLE FIRST. When injured in a bus accident, we will help you in your recovery first. Then, when you are on the mend, we can all focus on the details of your case.
•STRAIGHT TALK. A bus driver is required to have a different insurance policy than a regular driver of a car. Because of this, the process of dealing with the insurance company can be intimidating. We know this process well and can help you understand it too.
•EVERYONE WINS. When you receive a fair settlement and are well-treated, you are a winner. We win too by successfully representing our client and building a relationship of trust.
