What Causes Bicycle Accidents?

In some cases, bicycle accident defendants and their insurance companies can be all too eager to blame the crash on the bicyclist. This assumption is unfair, and it can often be challenged with an investigation. If you were hit by a motorist or pedestrian while riding your bike, then we want to prove that they caused it.

Different causes of bicycle accidents can include:

  • Motorists driving in dedicated bike lanes
  • Motorists running red lights
  • Motorists opening car doors into bike lanes
  • Pedestrians opening shop doors without checking

How Do Your Prove Liability for Bicycle Accidents?

Knowing that you didn’t cause the bicycle accident isn’t the same as being able to prove that you didn’t. Proving that you aren’t liable is crucial for keeping your liability down and demanding the most compensation from the defendant. Our Athens bicycle accident attorney knows how to uncover useful evidence that can build your case.

Evidence that we might be able to use to build your bicycle accident case includes:

  • Bicycle helmet cam footage
  • Eyewitness testimony
  • First responder reports
  • Medical records

What Types of Injuries Often Occur in an Athens, GA Bicycle Accident?

As a bicyclist, you mostly rely on three things to stay safe while traveling: your helmet, your skills, and the attentiveness of the motorists around you. Unfortunately, you can’t control how motorists behave. If an accident happens because a driver wasn’t paying attention, then only your helmet can protect you from injuries. For this reason, many bicycle accident claims involve catastrophic injuries.

Serious injuries that are often reported in bicycle accidents include:

  • Back and spine injuries
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Road rash or scarring
  • Permanent disfigurement
  • And others

At The Law Office of Joshua W. Branch, LLC, we focus on injury claims involving catastrophic and life-changing injuries. If you were seriously injured in a bike accident, then you can trust that our team will know how to handle your highly sensitive and complicated claim and/or lawsuit.

How Much Is My Bicycle Accident Claim Worth?

What compensation is owed to you after a bicycle accident? It depends on your injuries, the costs associated with them, and how your life has changed because of them. Our entire legal staff is here to work together and calculate the full compensation owed to you, so we don’t risk leaving even a dollar unclaimed.

The compensation we seek can help you pay for:
