Bicycle Accident Lawyer

As a cyclist, sharing the road with vehicles that weigh thousands of pounds can be dangerous. When a cyclist is involved in an accident with a negligent driver, the results can be devastating. If you were involved in an accident that was caused by a negligent driver while riding your bike, you deserve compensation. At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our bicycle accident lawyers can help you file a claim and pursue compensation from the negligent driver to cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages, personal property damage, and more.

How Can a Bicycle Accident Attorney Help?

A bike accident can be devastating and even deadly. Even if the cyclist wears a helmet, the impact of an auto collision or a sudden fall from a bike can cause severe injuries. If you were injured on your bike in an accident that was caused by a negligent motorist, you must seek compensation to cover the cost of your accident-related losses. At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, a bike accident attorney will fight to help you recover the compensation you deserve for an accident that was caused by the negligence of another. 

Our legal team can also help by:

  • Investigating the accident
  • Gathering evidence
  • Consulting with experts
  • Assessing damage
  • Filing paperwork
  • Handling all interactions with the insurance company
  • Negotiating with the claims adjuster
  • Filing a lawsuit (if necessary)

Keep in mind that the insurance company will do everything it can to deny your claim or minimize payout. When you work with an experienced bicycle accident attorney on our legal team, they will handle settlement negotiations and will not back down until the insurance company offers a fair settlement. If the insurance company refuses to offer the settlement you deserve, our trial-tested attorneys will be prepared to represent you in court. As we prepare for the trial, we will continue to negotiate with the insurance company. Fortunately, most cases are settled out of court. An insurance company does not want to waste time, resources, and money going to trial.

Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

Bike accidents involving motor vehicles are among the most serious and potentially deadly. 

The most common causes of bicycle accidents include:

Collisions at intersections

Drivers may fail to yield to cyclists at intersections, making left or right turns without checking for cyclists, or running red lights or stop signs.

Rear-End Collisions

Drivers strike cyclists from behind, especially in areas with heavy traffic or limited visibility.

Dooring Accidents

Cyclists collide with car doors that are suddenly opened without warning by parked vehicle occupants.

Unsafe Road Conditions

Poorly designed or maintained roadways can pose hazards to cyclists, leading to accidents.

Lack of Bike Lanes

Cyclists may be forced to ride in traffic lanes due to a lack of bike lanes. Because of this, they are at an increased risk of collisions with vehicles.

Road Debris

Gravel, sand, leaves, or other debris on roadways can cause cyclists to lose traction and crash.

The guidance and patience exhibited by Attorney LaRue and his team were paramount in the successful navigation of this event for my family and I. In a perfect world I won't have to ring his phone anytime soon, but should the Truck of Life dump on me again, I wouldn't hesitate to dial them up.
