Seeking Compensation for a Bike Accident
You may have a right to claim compensation from the driver involved in
your accident. The outcome of
your case will likely be decided based on the following questions:
- Was the accident caused by the recklessness or negligence of the driver?
- Does the bicyclist hold any responsibility in causing the accident?
In the event of a lawsuit, there may be an attempt to deflect some or all
of the blame onto the bicyclist in order to minimize or void their
personal injury claim. That is why it is crucial to work with a personal injury attorney who
can fight for your rights and make sure your case gets the best outcome
possible. Don't go it alone – call Simeone & Miller, LLP
as soon as possible!

Understanding the Danger of Bicycle Accidents
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA),
in 2010 alone, nearly 800 bicyclists were killed, and
over half a million required emergency care for injuries sustained in an accident. Most deaths occur at non-intersection
locations in urban areas, but the reality is that bicycle accidents can
happen anywhere and anytime.
Although they may drive side by side on the road, bicycles and automobiles
are simply no match for each other, and the results of not sharing the
road can be disastrous. Only one percent of trips are taken by bicycle
in the United States, yet bicyclists face a higher risk of accident-related
injury and death than those driving or riding in motor vehicles.
