Bicycle Accident Attorney

The United States is home to a thriving community of bicyclists. With great weather and beautiful coastlines, bicycle riding is a desirable exercise. Unfortunately, it is not without its fair share of negligent drivers. In the United States approximately 857 people per year die from bicycle traffic crashes. I am a Lynchburg bicycle accident lawyer and I represent clients for bicycle accidents.

Virginia Bicycle

"Bicycle" means a device propelled solely by human power, upon which a person may ride either on or astride a regular seat attached thereto, having two or more wheels in tandem, including children's bicycles, except a toy vehicle intended for use by young children. 

Precautions for Bicyclists

Cyclists and vehicle operators are expected to share the roads. Because of the size and weight of vehicles on the roadways, it’s important for bicyclists to take certain precautions to better protect themselves. Not only is this important from a safety standpoint, taking these precautions could also help your case hold up better in court if you are involved in a biking accident.

Tips for bicyclists:

  • Mount reflective gear on the front and rear of your bicycle
  • Wear a helmet
  • Don’t ride against traffic
  • Ride in bike lanes when present, or on paved shoulders
  • Ride single file on curving roads without shoulders or lanes
  • Indicate your movements through the use of hand signals
  • Make eye contact with drivers
  • Wear protective, reflective gear when riding

Whatever the cause of your accident, our firm can thoroughly investigate the circumstances and fight to hold the appropriate party responsible for your injuries. Whether your bike was manufactured improperly or whether a driver was on his or her phone and didn’t see you, our bicycle accident lawyer can fight for justice on your behalf.

Quite often, road ways even go so far as to have their own lanes designated for bicycles. These roadways sometimes go ignored by negligent drivers. Whenever I take a bicycle accident case I do a diligent investigation and research into how the scene of the accident may have contributed to a drivers lack of care in an accident.

Ride in the Bicycle Lane Where Available

"Bicycle lane" means that portion of a roadway designated by signs and/or pavement markings for the preferential use of bicycles, electric power-assisted bicycles, motorized skateboards or scooters, and mopeds.

Get More Compensation With a Lynchburg Bicycle Accident Attorney

Statistically, you will receive more compensation with a lawyer then without a lawyer representing you. I have seen this scenario several times in practice. A few times clients have attempted to settle a case with an insurance company prior to retaining me to represent them. After I have been retained on a case, I obtain an offer that not only paid my attorney’s fees but more importantly got more compensation in the clients pocket then they would have gotten on their own. Please do not hesitate to take advantage of a free consultation (434) 660-9701.
