Cycling is a fun, eco-friendly form of exercise and can be a great way to enjoy fresh air while commuting to work or school. It’s not without risks, though. Even with a helmet, if a cyclist is struck by a car or motorcycle or even gets into a crash with a pedestrian or another bicycle rider, there’s a good chance of suffering serious injury.

If you’ve been in a bicycle accident, you have the right to seek compensation for all damages you suffer. You deserve the right medical care and rehabilitative therapy to put you in the best position for recovery – and the legal team at Parker, Pallet, Slezak & Russell, LLC, can help you get there. Call us today for a free consultation with a Harford County, MD, bicycle accident lawyer.

Your Harford County Bicycle Accident Lawyer Works For You

In a collision between a cyclist and a motor vehicle, the person on the bike has a small chance of just walking away. Even with a helmet, the rider may suffer a concussion or facial injury. Spinal cord and back injuries are also common, which may leave you permanently disabled and in chronic pain. Broken bones, soft tissue and organ damage, and painful “road rash” may also happen. Medical treatment can be intense, with the possibility of complications. You may be out of work for weeks recovering, and in some cases, your injuries could leave you unable to work in the same job you had before the accident.

A bike accident settlement can cover all medical care needed after the collision, plus your lost wages and diminished earning potential. Your bike accident attorney values the claim to account for your loss of earning capacity and to cover potential health complications you may suffer from the accident.

Getting Compensation After A Bike Accident

The party that caused the accident, whether it was a driver, another cyclist, a distracted pedestrian, or even the municipality responsible for ensuring that the roads and bike paths are safe for cyclists. Your lawyer determines which party or parties may be liable in the crash – there may be more than one. Then, they sift through witness accounts, photos or a video of the collision, and other evidence to build the case for liability against the person or entity that is responsible for the accident.

Some cases may not be straightforward, or the other party involved may tell their insurance company that you caused the wreck, and the insurance company may deny our claim. Hiring a lawyer shows that you’re serious. A lawyer may negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company or even take your claim to court to get you the money you’re entitled to.
