Causes of Bicycle Accidents
Bicycle accidents often occur at intersections, when drivers are turning, or as rear end collisions. They may be caused by inattentive drivers, someone driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, weather conditions, or failure of a driver to yield the right of way. Unfortunately, the lack of protection on a bicycle leaves the cyclist at greater risk of severe or catastrophic injury.
Proving Liability in Bicycle Wrecks
When the bicycle accident was caused by a negligent driver, you have a right to seek compensation for your injury and related damages. For your claim to be successful, it is necessary to show that the other party was negligent in the accident. It is common for drivers and their insurance companies to attempt to blame the person on the bicycle.
In preparing cases, our Wichita bicycle accident injury attorneys will:
- Obtain and review police reports
- Gather statements from witnesses
- Consult with accident reconstruction experts
- Obtain information to show your losses and damages
Devastating injuries often result from bicycle accidents and may require extensive medical care and rehabilitation, preventing the victim from working to earn a living. We seek to recover maximum compensation for your medical expenses, hospital bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and other damages. Our attorneys have more than five decades of combined experience and know how to get the maximum result for our clients.
