When You Need a Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Bicycle accidents are often caused by malfunctioning bicycles or by careless drivers or cyclists who do not obey the traffic rules. Those who are injured by collisions with vehicles while riding a bicycle often sustain serious injuries that can involve lost time at work and extensive treatment and rehabilitation. Hiring a bicycle accident lawyer can help a bicycle accident victim to recover adequate compensation for the lost work time and treatment of injuries.
Causes of Bicycle Accidents
Bicycle accidents can be caused by poor maintenance of the bicycle. They can also be caused by unsafe road conditions and lack of proper road maintenance. The most serious accidents are usually caused by collisions of the bicycle with automobiles or other vehicles. If the bicycle rider is involved in an accident with a motor vehicle the victim may be entitled to “no -fault” damages. If the bicycle accident was caused by negligence medical expenses, lost earnings and damages for pain and suffering can be recovered.
