Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Were you hit by a car while riding your bike?
Cycling has been popular for years. Unfortunately, car accidents involving cyclists often occur as well. And when they do, the injuries are often severe. That's because bicyclists have little protection against cars, trucks or other motorized vehicles.
The financial impact of a bicycle accident can be staggering - medical expenses, lost income and even lost future income if you cannot return to work due to your injury. That's why it's important for bicycle accident injury victims to get the compensation they rightfully deserve.
Our bicycle accident lawyers at Villari, Brandes & Giannone, P.C. can make sure your accident receives our full attention. Based in Philadelphia and serving accident victims throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey, we know how the system works and what it takes to win such serious cases.
Why accidents happen
Bicycle accidents happen for many different reasons. But there are often many similarities between bicycle accidents caused by drivers. Perhaps the most common excuse we hear is the other driver simply didn't see the cyclist. But just because someone didn't see you isn't good enough. If someone caused your bicycle accident, that person needs to be held responsible.
Some of the other most common causes of bicycle accidents include:
- Texting drivers
- Distracted drivers
- Speeding drivers
- Drunk drivers
- Reckless drivers
Whatever the cause of your bicycle accident, make sure you take your case seriously right from the start. Make sure you contact us and schedule a free case evaluation with one of our experienced attorneys.
We can help you
You might think you don't need a lawyer if another driver clearly caused your bicycle accident. All you have to do is call the police and your insurance company and they will take care of everything, right?
Don't be so sure. In many cases, bicycle accidents turn out to be much more complicated than people first suspect. That's because the drivers who cause such accidents often deny doing anything wrong.
And then there's the insurance companies. Most of them only care about one thing - the bottom line. That's why they'll often do everything they can to reduce or deny your claim for your bicycle accident.
That's not right. That's why we want to help you every step of the way - from filling out accident forms to negotiating with insurance companies on your behalf. And if they don't cooperate, we're prepared to take them to court on your behalf. We're on your side. Contact us today.
