While you focus on recovering physically from your bike crash, we will handle the legal burden. We will seek an outcome that reimburses you for medical bills, long-term therapy and care, lost wages for the time you are unable to perform your job duties and any lasting effect your injury has on your ability to return to work. Our accomplished personal injury attorneys are well versed in the types of accidents that harm cyclists, such as those arising from:
After you’ve been injured in a bicycle accident, you can expect the insurer for the car or truck driver to minimize your compensation for medical bills, lost income and property damage. No matter what type of bicycle you ride, we’ll press for full compensation including the replacement of your bike when that is appropriate. Don’t let a defense lawyer bully you into a quick settlement where you only receive repair costs or the value of a used bike. After you’ve been struck, it’s crucial to get the medical assistance you need. If everyone is safe, you can start to record your impressions of the accident scene, take photographs and get contact information of any witnesses. Don’t admit responsibility or try to prove your case — we will handle that.
Even with a helmet, a bicycle rider could easily suffer a traumatic brain injury after coming into contact with a motor vehicle. Moreover, the cyclist might have to deal with broken bones, back pain, internal injuries or permanent harm such as paralysis or disfigurement. In these situations, medical and rehabilitation expenses could last for years and total hundreds of thousands of dollars, or even more. As seasoned injury litigators, we are familiar with the financial recovery that should accompany specific types of injury claims in the Carolinas. And as an avid cyclist, attorney Michael Levine provides strong advocacy for a recovery that makes you whole.
