What Can You Get Compensation for After a Bicycle Accident?

by Staff Blogger | April 30th, 2018

Bicycle accidents can be just as traumatic, painful, and disabling as auto and motorcycle accidents.

At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, our Norfolk bicycle accident lawyers know that bicyclists face many dangers when they head out on their local streets. Drivers are conditioned to be on the lookout for other cars, trucks, and SUVs. Motorcycles are loud enough to help capture their attention, but cyclists can prove to be more of a challenge for inattentive drivers, whether they are riding on rural roads or busy city streets.

When drivers look away from the road, they may change lanes into the paths of motorcyclists, cut them off at intersections, or drift into bike lanes. All of those actions can cause bicyclists to crash, and in some cases, bicyclists are even struck directly by vehicles.

If you or someone you love was hurt in a bicycle accident, it’s important to have a legal team on your side that can help you get compensation for:

  • Medical bills—Bicyclists commonly suffer broken bones and may even experience head injuries. They frequently face long paths to recovery, and they may need surgeries and physical rehabilitation. We’ll fight to help you get the money you need to get better.
  • Lost wages—Any serious, painful, or debilitating injury can make it impossible to work for a prolonged period of time. We’ll calculate how much money you’ve lost due to your bicycle accident, and we’ll negotiate with the insurance company to get you full compensation.

Don’t let a bicycle accident that wasn’t your fault put your family in a financial bind. Call Lowell Stanley today for a free consultation.
