Riverside Bicycle Accident Attorney

Riding a bike can be dangerous, especially with drivers out there who fail to share the road. When you are hurt, it is on you to take the proper steps to preserve your legal rights. Luckily for people in your position, good lawyers are out there, and those lawyers can help you when things get tough. A reputable bike accident attorney will sit down with you to determine if your initial claim is a good and viable one. Another part of the attorney's role is to discuss the situation with you to determine just what damages you might seek in your lawsuit.

Understanding negligence and bicycle accidents

In each state, the law requires that all individuals exercise reasonable care when they are out on the road. This means that they must look for other drivers and even cyclists who are trying to share the road. A central role of your attorney is finding a clear way to show that the other party failed to exercise this necessary reasonable care. This is called negligence, and if your attorney can show that the other party was negligent, you will have the opportunity to recover any damages that were a result of the accident.

What things can you recover in a bicycle accident?

People who are hurt in bicycle accidents have the opportunity to recover many different types of damages. You might recover all of the medical costs associated with the accident. This would include hospital bills, surgery costs, and even the cost of the ambulance if you had to use one. You might also recover compensation for pain and suffering. Many people are able to recover lost wages if they had to miss work. Most plaintiffs will have some success showing that the accident cost them some ability to earn money in the future. The key, of course, is to have a skilled lawyer by your side, as your attorney will play a critical role in proving the various elements of your claim.

One thing to keep in mind is that you do not have forever to file your lawsuit. Different states have different statutes on how long you can wait before putting in the claim. In most states, you have two years from the date of the incident to file a lawsuit. This means that it is important to start gathering information as quickly as you can. You should not wait to get in touch with a skilled lawyer when your claim is hanging in the balance.
