Saline Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Many people ride bikes in Saline as a form of recreation and as a means of transportation. Cyclists in our area are fortunate to benefit from several dedicated bike trails. When you are able to stick to these dedicated bike lanes, you are protected from traffic. However, there are times when you may need to travel on or near the road. When riding near cars, the potential for serious accidents increases.

If you sustained severe injuries in a bike crash caused by a negligent driver, a Saline bicycle accident lawyer can help you take legal action. Consider reaching out to our team of experienced personal injury attorneys to discuss your claim.

What Are the Common Causes of Bike Wrecks in Saline?

Bike use has become more prevalent in recent years, but Saline drivers are still not used to sharing the road with cyclists. Bikes are small and have low profiles, so they are hard to see. Crashes often occur when drivers fail to notice the cyclists near them.

Many of the most serious bike wrecks occur at intersections when motorists turn directly into the path of oncoming cyclists. Serious injuries can also happen when someone in a parked car opens their door and hits an approaching cyclist. Some of the common causes of cycling accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk or drugged driving
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating

Our dedicated attorneys in Saline have experience handling bike crash cases. We can comb through the relevant evidence to pinpoint the cause of the accident to determine who bears legal responsibility for your injuries.

Potential Injuries Resulting from a Cycling Accident

Other than helmets, cyclists have nothing to protect them in a crash with a car. After a severe collision, one might suffer injuries such as:

  • Road rash
  • Broken bones
  • Internal organ damage
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Whiplash and other neck injuries
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Paralysis

In addition to physical trauma, you face psychological issues, such as anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress. If your injuries prevent you from working, you are also likely to face financial hardship. Fortunately, a skilled lawyer from our firm can help you pursue a monetary judgment to cover all your losses.

Determining Negligence in an Accident Claim

The success of any personal injury claim depends on your ability to prove the other party was negligent. This involves demonstrating that the defendant had a responsibility to act reasonably around you, breached that duty, and directly caused your injuries and damages.

However, the defendant in your case may also claim that you were negligent. While partial fault does not bar you from recovering compensation, it could impact how much you receive in damages.

If the other party successfully proves you were partially negligent, the court will reduce your compensation by the percentage of fault your bear. Our attorneys know how to fight against allegations of partial fault and can help you protect your right to full compensation after a bicycle accident.
