What a Bicycle Accident Lawyer Will Do for You
Medical bills and the trauma you or your loved one face after a bicycle accident can cost you a lot of money. You may be unable to work due to injuries or the development of mental illness, such as post-traumatic stress disorder.
The good news is you can contact a Florence bicycle accident lawyer from our team to help you. The lawyer takes on your case, making the responsible party pay for some or all of your damages. We ensure you don’t have to spend more than you need to deal with the accident and get you compensation for the damages you endured. Some of the ways a bicycle accident lawyer from our team does this include:
Our lawyers use available physical evidence of the accident to determine the party at fault. To hold the other party responsible, we will establish negligence:
- The other party owed you a duty of care.
- The other party acted negligently, breaching their duty of care.
- The other party’s negligence caused your accident and injuries.
- You sustained damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, and pain and suffering.
Your lawyer will then file the relevant claims to ensure the responsible party pays for the damages.
Many people accept lower settlements than they deserve because they don’t know what damages they may be entitled to.
Your lawyer calculates all the physical, emotional, and financial damages you incurred in the accident and assigns them a monetary value. We then present the damages to the at-fault party or a jury to help you get an award for the damages.
Negotiating for Fair Compensation
Most people assume they have to take what the insurance company offers them. However, you have the right to negotiate for a higher settlement.
There can be a lot of back and forth involved in compensation negotiation. That is what your bicycle accident lawyer does for you. We will negotiate with the other party until we reach a favorable settlement, getting you adequate compensation for all your damages.
Preparing Your Case for Trial
Depending on your case, you may need to file a lawsuit to recover compensation. Our team will prepare your case for trial to ensure we are ready to present your case in front of a jury.

Common Bicycle Accident Injuries
Regardless of whether you ride your bike on busy streets or in your neighborhood, you have to follow set bicycle safety rules. The rules are there to protect you from getting badly injured in an accident. They also protect other cyclists and road users from you.
Sometimes, no matter how careful you are and how closely you follow bicycle safety rules, you can still get into an accident. These accidents are painful and can badly hurt you, resulting in severe injuries. Some common injuries in bicycle accidents are:
- Traumatic brain injuries, such as a concussion
- Road rash
- Bone fractures
- Internal or spinal injuries
- Dental or facial trauma
Some of these injuries can leave you temporarily or permanently disabled. This means you will have to fork out a lot of money in medical bills to cover these injuries. Some injuries also cause disfigurement and a lot of physical and mental trauma.
