Bicycle Accidents

Bicycle Accidents

In the past years, riding has been a growing interest and passion in Acadiana. Along with the growth, accidents have increased. Most people will tell you that with more people than ever choosing this mode of transportation, the potential for injuries is higher than ever. Even for those experienced riders, it can be a dangerous way to travel. It may be surprising to people how terrible a “simple” bike accident can be, and head injuries are a major concern.

Bicycling has steadily grown in popularity. It provides a chance to exercise, and it’s eco-friendly. Unfortunately, heavy vehicular traffic doesn’t mesh well with the rise in bicycling popularity. When drivers don’t pay attention, a bicyclist can be at risk, and sometimes with a fatal outcome. When a bicyclist is involved in an accident, there are additional questions to ask. Some of these may be:

  • Which side of the road was the bike rider on?
  • Did the biker wear a safety helmet?
  • Did the accident occur when the bike rider was in a crosswalk on the street or a sidewalk?
  • Was the bike equipped with lights and other safety devices in compliance with the law?
  • How did the driver behave around the bike? If the driver did not treat the biker as a vehicle, was there negligence on the driver’s part?

The answers to these questions will factor into the settlement of your case.

It can be hard to start the process of filing a claim after an accident. You have to tell your side of the story in clear and definite terms. In circumstances where you might not even know what facts are important, presenting an insurance claim is daunting for most folks. Such difficulties are powerful deterrents, and the insurance industry knows that many injured claimants won’t bother filing a claim. And often, those that do choose to go forward without the assistance of a skilled advocate on their side.

We will fight tenaciously on your behalf, and it is our job to be your ally. Let us worry about the legal process, so you can worry about healing and getting your life back together.
