Injured in a Bicycle Accident? Call Bill Kennedy Law Today

Some days you want to get out of the house and feel free to move about the world. So you hop on your bicycle and get on the road. Maybe you rely on your bike to get to and from work, the grocery store or around town. Because of the strict laws surrounding sharing the road, you feel safe, even as cars speed around you. The next thing you know, you are knocked to the pavement and endure a lot of pain.

 

If you or someone you know has been hurt in a bicycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Bicycle accidents and even pedestrian mishaps can have severe and long-lasting consequences. Drivers who are not paying attention to the road until it is too late often cause these accidents. People behind the wheel of a car have an obligation to yield for bikers at designated crosswalks, and if they fail to do so and hit someone, it is considered negligence.

 

You may feel overwhelmed if you know you need help following a bicycle accident, but Bill Kennedy Law is here to provide professional assistance—inside and outside of the courtroom. We are also more than willing to assist with the insurance claims process and ensure you receive the care you need while we prepare for trial.

The Causes and Effects of Bicycle Accidents

In this day and age, there are a plethora of ways you can transport yourself and get around. With all these methods of travel, however, come more ways you can get hurt. Bicycle accidents happen, but when it is you or a loved one who is involved, you may be left feeling shocked and confused about how to proceed.

 

Bicycle accidents are most often caused by any of the following:

  • Distracted Driving Due to Talking, Texting or Messing with the Radio
  • Drunk Driving
  • Failure to Stop at Red Lights and Stop Signs
  • Ignoring Pedestrians’ Right of Way
  • Inability to See Around Other Vehicles or Obstacles

 

Jaywalking and other irresponsible pedestrian habits do not help either, but bicyclists and walkers cannot be expected to always look out for vehicles moving considerably faster than they can. There are many more mistakes that car drivers can make that can result in someone else getting hurt during a bicycle accident.

 

Drivers are shielded by thousands of pounds of metal and also have access to seat belts. Bikers are afforded no such luxury. This lack of bodily protection on the road can result in any number of injuries, including broken bones, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, serious skin abrasions or even loss of life and limb. You could end up in the hospital, and that is oftentimes horribly expensive.
