Bicycle Accident Claims Handled with Care

Whether you bike to commute, exercise, or just for fun, many Ohio cities have become increasingly bike-friendly. However, roadway improvements do not necessarily mean that motorists have experienced an increased awareness of bicyclists. In even a low-speed collision with a car, truck, or other vehicle, bicyclists can suffer serious injuries, so motorists need to be abundantly careful whenever a bicyclist is near.

Our attorneys at The Attkisson Law Firm have decades of combined experience in fighting for the rights of injured bicyclists around the city of Dayton, Ohio. When we accept a bicycle accident claim, we know we need to be at the top of our crafts to secure the maximum amount of damages possible for our client. Oftentimes, medical costs and lost wages can put an injured bicyclist in a dire financial situation, and it is up to us to help them out of it through honest and dedicated legal representation.

Holding Negligent Parties Accountable

Serious accidents can occur on both protected bike lanes and regular roads. Common causes of bike accidents include impaired or distracted drivers, getting doored by someone exiting a vehicle, 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, and spinal cord. 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 or poorly maintained roadways contributed to the crash.

Fighting for the Maximum Amount of Damages

After a serious injury, you need skilled, aggressive legal representation. We take the time needed to fully assess your claim, giving us the optimal angle of approach. Each step we take is done in pursuit of your best interests.

When working on a bicycle accident claim, we can:

  • File an insurance claim on your behalf
  • Investigate the cause of the accident
  • Identify negligent or reckless behavior in other parties
  • Properly assess fault and liability
  • 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 deserve. 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 attorneys are committed to your wellbeing and will not back down.
