A bicycle accident can be a harrowing experience that leaves behind grievous injuries and expensive medical bills. If you or a loved one suffered injuries in such an accident, and another party’s negligence caused it, you have legal options.
A Valparaiso bicycle accident lawyer from Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers can pursue compensation for your losses. We will manage everything your case needs to reach a favorable outcome.
Indiana’s Statute of Limitations Affects Your Case
You have a limited time to pursue an injury lawsuit. Per IC § 34-11-2-4, you typically have two years to file your case.
That can seem like a long time, but weeks and months can pass by quickly as you try to recover from your injuries and return to normalcy. This is another good reason to hire an attorney who handles bicycle accident cases. Your lawyer can begin the legal process while you focus on recovering.
You Can Afford to Partner with Our Firm Regardless of Your Finances
We know this is a challenging time for you and your family. You may think that hiring an attorney is just another financial burden. We understand. That’s why we don’t charge any upfront fees or costs to start managing your case. Our attorney’s fees come from the funds we recover from the liable party.
Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers has secured more than $1 billion in settlements for our clients. Our attorneys also have more than 400 years of combined legal experience. We are ready to fight for what you need.
We’re Ready To Pursue Your Past, Present, and Future Losses
Using our network of resources and years of experience, we’re ready to recover:
Your Medical Bills
Your treatment could require hospital stays, doctors’ visits, prescription medications, and physical therapy. These costs can add up quickly, even if you have insurance. Why should you have to pay for losses another party caused?
You shouldn’t. Our team will seek damages for your past, present, and future healthcare expenses.
If your injuries prevent you from working, those lost wages can cause financial stress for your family. Your settlement should account for your job-related losses, including lost:
- Hourly rates
Loss of Future Earning Potential
Unfortunately, your injuries could end up causing permanent damage and impede your working ability. If your injuries prevent you from working at the same job, working the same number of hours, or working at all, we can factor those hardships into your case.
Loss of Enjoyment of Life
Those injuries that affect your ability to work can also affect your leisure time. If you can no longer take part in a sport or hobby you once loved, that is important! Your settlement should help make up for this struggle.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering reflects the trauma your bicycle accident caused. We will determine what you’re owed by reviewing your losses, injuries’ severity, and mental state. Then, we’ll share how much you’re owed in pain and suffering.
Wrongful Death-Related Losses
If your loved one passed away in a bicycle accident, an attorney from our Valparaiso office will pursue:
- Funeral costs
- Final medical bills
- Loss of the decedent’s income
- Loss of consortium
- The decedent’s pain and suffering
Our goal is to recover everything you need to move forward from this challenging event. As such, you may recover compensation for losses not included here. It all depends on your situation.
How Our Injury Team Will Fight for You
Fighting for compensation can be tough, but you don’t have to pursue it alone. A lawyer from our firm can:
- Interview witnesses
- Gather evidence
- Visit the scene of the accident
- Handle all communications for you
- Field settlement offers
- Calculate fair compensation
- Hold all liable parties accountable
- Prepare you to give statements
The insurance companies and other involved parties are going to have their own lawyers on their side. Even the playing field by letting one of our bicycle accident attorneys help you.
We Will Determine Liability for Your Injury-Related Losses
Our lawyers have experience handling all types of bicycle accident cases, and we can show how the negligent actions of another party caused you harm. We can deal with:
- Towns that improperly maintain infrastructure, causing dangerous road conditions
- Other cyclists
- Drunk, distracted, or drowsy drivers who create dangerous conditions
- Bus companies whose drivers cause collisions
The facts of every case are different. Our commitment to fighting for our clients remains the same.
We Advocate for Bicycle Accident Claimants Suffering from These Injuries
A bicycle simply does not offer the same level of protection that a motor vehicle does. There is no limit to how harmful bicycle accident injuries can be. Common injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Cuts, scrapes, and bruises
- Spinal cord damage
- Nerve damage
- Organ damage
- Internal bleeding
These injuries can leave behind expensive medical bills and cause plenty of pain and suffering. If someone else caused your bicycle accident, they should pay for your losses.
