If you ride a bicycle on public roads in Virginia, you must obey the same traffic laws as everyone else. That means observing the speed limit, stopping at stop signs and red lights, and avoiding distractions. Following those laws means that you also deserve the same level of respect and consideration as people traveling in passenger vehicles.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. Drivers are often accustomed to looking out for other cars, trucks, and SUVs, putting bicyclists at increased risk. And because bicyclists often have no protection outside of helmets, they can suffer serious and even life-threatening injuries when they’re involved in accidents with passenger vehicles.
If you or someone you love was hurt while riding a bicycle, the Norfolk bicycle accident attorneys at Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers want to help. You may be facing weeks or even months away from work, and your medical bills may be more than you can afford. But if your accident happened because of someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible to pursue a claim to get money for your accident-related expenses.
Don’t let the insurance company or the driver who struck you or caused your accident intimidate you into giving up your rights to the money you deserve. Our legal team knows how to collect evidence that proves bicyclists weren’t at fault for their accidents, and it’s our goal to build a strong claim on your behalf.
