You may have disabling injuries that will affect your ability to live independently and require ongoing medical treatment and assistance. A knowledgeable personal injury lawyer will work with life-care planners to project your future medical expenses and losses and include those as part of your claim.
You should get the medical treatment that you need and consult a bicycle accident lawyer about your legal rights to seek compensation.
How to file a claim after bicycle accident
If you have been involved in a serious bicycle accident involving another vehicle, you may be eligible to file an injury claim after the at-fault driver’s no-fault insurance has paid at least $5,000 of your medical bills. It’s important to recognize that every bike accident has its own unique circumstances, contributing factors and degrees of injury.
An experienced personal injury attorney can review the specific details of your bicycle accident and explain your legal options.
An injured bicyclist who qualifies to file an injury claim may pursue compensation for:
• Medical bills
• Rehabilitation expenses
• Lost income due to missed work
• Pain and suffering
If the accident was caused by a driver whose conduct showed disregard for public safety, such as a driver travelling at a very high speed, you may be entitled to seek punitive damages from the at-fault driver as well. The Vegas Auto Injury Lawyers will review the specific facts of your accident and identify all the potentially responsible parties who may have liability for your injuries.
We will interview witnesses and make sure that the bicyclist’s version of what happened in the accident is part of the record and not ignored by insurance companies biased in favor of car drivers.
We will represent you in negotiations with the insurance company and seek a settlement that reflects the full extent of your injuries. If the insurance company refuses to make a fair settlement, we will pursue the claim in court, where we have been successful in helping many clients.
