Whether you bike to commute, exercise or just for fun, many Ohio cities have become increasingly bike-friendly. However, in a collision with a car, truck or other vehicle, bicyclists can suffer serious injuries.
The attorneys at The Attkisson Law Firm, LLC, have over 40 years of combined experience in fighting for the rights of personal injury victims. We know that bicyclists are much more vulnerable in an accident with a motor vehicle, given the lack of protection compared to a passenger vehicle or commercial truck. We will seek the maximum amount of damages possible to help you move forward.
Serious accidents can occur on both protected bike lanes and regular roads. Common causes of bike accidents include impaired or distracted drivers, getting doored, failure to yield at a crosswalk or intersection, hazardous roadways and more.
Injuries from such accidents can include broken bones, internal bleeding and serious injuries to the head, neck, spinal cord and more. We will identify the negligent parties responsible for the crash. While the driver of the other vehicle may appear to be at fault, other parties such as city or state governments could also be liable when road design, poorly maintained roadways or more contributed to the crash.
After a serious injury, you need skilled, aggressive legal representation. We will:
File an insurance claim
Investigate the cause of the accident
Identify negligent or reckless behavior
Properly assess fault
Fight for the full amount of compensation you deserve
Damages can provide necessary financial compensation for medical expenses, property damages, potentially lost wages, and pain and suffering. Unfortunately, the insurance company is not always willing to pay accident victims the amount they are entitled to.
With a long track record of obtaining substantial settlements and verdicts, we will leverage our experience and reputation as aggressive litigators to pursue what you are due. Our heavy hitters are committed to your well-being and will not back down.
