Every year, hundreds of adults and children are injured after thinking they had the right of way to bike through an intersection or are biking on the side of the road. Similar to motorcycle and car accident claims, the at-fault motorist will typically argue the accident victim is responsible for his or her catastrophic injuries.
The cycling lifestyle has been exploding in popularity. Distracted driving accidents are a growing concern for cyclists. Every year in Wisconsin, bicycles are run over by drivers who are distracted by their phones, radios, passengers, or something else that has taken their eyes off of the road. It's not just cars and trucks that cause accidents involving bikes, as there have been cases involving taxis, coach buses, and school buses as well. We have the skills and tenacity to prove fault, even in a difficult distracted driving case when liability is initially unclear.
Our law firm's personal injury attorneys are quick to overcome this challenge. We have pursued justice for innocent children and adults injured or killed after biking legally on sidewalks and roadways, or crossing intersections.
We offer a depth of experience in investigating liability factors. Our legal team devotes substantial time to understanding the specific ordinances for the use of sidewalks and roads in communities where fatal or catastrophic bicycle accidents occurred. Our investigative skills help us establish liability and aggressively hold at-fault parties accountable.
- We act quickly investigating accident scenes. When you select Action Law Offices, we will immediately investigate the accident scene, evaluate any property damage, and examine the point of impact. We will also meet with eyewitnesses and evaluate accident scene reports. Our legal team analyzes the cause of the accident from many angles to understand if poor road conditions or an inattentive motorist ultimately caused the accident.
- We represent victims of hit and run accidents. If you were injured in a hit and run accident or rear end accident, we will determine if you have underinsured or uninsured car insurance coverage. This coverage can cover your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering up to the limits of your insurance policy.
- We aggressively pursue maximum compensation. Our legal team will consult your medical specialist to make sure your prognosis is accurate and fully documented. If your injury has left you disabled or with a serious spinal or brain injury, we will work with economists, life care planners, and vocational experts to help us account for the level of compensation you will need long-term.
