Who Is To Blame For The Bike Accident That Left You Injured?
Victims of bike accidents often have to deal with a traumatic aftermath, including painful injuries, medical bills and emotional trauma. These specific types of motor vehicle accidents frequently result in grave or fatal injuries, and sadly, many are the result of the negligent or reckless actions of Georgia motorists.
If you are the victim of a bike accident, your accident may be the result of negligent actions such as distracted driving and other types of reckless behaviors. Perhaps you were traveling in a bike lane or on a sidewalk when a vehicle struck you, leaving you with injuries that can have a permanent effect on your life. At The Hoyt Firm, we help people in Rome and throughout Georgia affected by these types of accidents pick up the pieces and hold liable parties accountable through personal injury claims.
Serious Accidents With Serious Results
Distraction, speeding and failure to share the road are just a few of the reasons why bike accidents happen. Cyclists have the right to be in certain areas, and drivers have the responsibility of sharing space safely and considerately. As experienced personal injury lawyers, we know how to investigate your case, determine what happened and build a strong claim on your behalf. We consider all factors, including the following:
- Even a low-speed bike accident can lead to serious injuries because cyclists are largely unprotected against the impact of a vehicle.
- Drivers often fail to see bikes or do not understand the rights of cyclists.
- Motorists often claim the biker was reckless or in the wrong place, when in reality, the driver was not attentive.
Through a civil claim, we will fight for the compensation you deserve. This includes recovery of not only your medical bills and other expenses, but also for future needs you may have. Recovery can be a lengthy process, and you may not be able to work during this process. We have secured numerous multimillion-dollar settlements for our clients. You can count on our attorneys to diligently pursue the full amount you need to get better and move forward with your life.
