You’re riding along on your bike and some vehicle doesn’t see you or thinks he owns the road or that you have inferior road rights than him. Wrong! You’re hit due to the other driver’s fault and you explosively go down and are hurt. Your bike is wrecked or seriously damaged and you need transportation. You need medical care and worry about the medical bills. You may have to miss work and lose income.
Let’s face it, a bike does not have the shield of metal surrounding you as does a car. As a biker, it is your flesh, organs and bones that directly suffer. The trauma can be devastating and bicycle accidents very often lead to serious injuries, including those requiring hospitalization and surgery. Herniated discs and broken bones are not uncommon.
The type of full monetary recovery that we seek for our bicycle accident clients can include:
- Medical expenses: past, present and future.
- Loss of earnings: past present and future.
- Emotional distress: past, present and future.
- Pain and suffering: past, present and future.
- Property damage, and loss of use of your bicycle
Also, punitive damages, meant to punish the party at fault, may be sought, depending on the circumstances.
If you are married, your spouse may have a claim for loss of consortium, that is, loss of your love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection, society, moral support and sexual relations (or the ability to have children).
When we take a case, we take it to win.
Very often there is insurance covering negligence and it has been said that without an attorney fighting for you insurance companies will do their best to take advantage of you. They may try to fight over whose fault the incident is, say your medical bills are outrageous and not recoverable, deny loss of earnings and try not to give money for pain and suffering and diminishment of your life style. Let’s face it, the insurance companies are not in the business of giving away money. They have trained claims adjusters and attorneys trying to pay nothing, or as little as possible.
