Bicyle Accident Claims
Bicyclists have insufficient protection against serious personal injury when they are hit by motor vehicles. Frequently, traumatic injuries result, including long lasting or permanent injuries, broken bones, and paralysis. Helmets may not be enough to protect against traumatic brain injury. Sadly, an accident can result in death.
As bicycle accident lawyers, Murphy and Pressentin works for cyclists and their families against those who are at fault for causing injury or death. Those responsible parties may be drivers, an in other instances parties such as construction companies, municipalities or cities. If alcohol establishments knowingly served the driver alcohol when they should have realized that the driver was intoxicated, they could also be held negligent.
We investigate your personal injury
It is essential to fully examine all aspects of a bicycle accident to prove negligence. In most cases we retain accident specialists to assist us in establishing the cause the accident. In addition to handling claims against the other driver, we will determine if other motorists contributed to the accident. We also look into other conditions that may have played a role in causing the accident, such as if stop lights were not functioning properly, if bushes or other foliage obstructed a driver’s view, or whether construction or other repairs played a factor.
We will investigate whether or not there have been other bicycle accidents at that site, and whether the city or municipality was aware of the hazards. In some cases they are fully aware of dangerous conditions but fail to take necessary precautions to make the location safe.
Taking legal action
Once we have established all those who we consider are legally responsible, we will initiate a lawsuit against them and pursue recovery from them for their part in the damages that resulted.
