Bicycle Accident Attorney
Utah has seen an uptick in bicycle traffic in recent years, as more people have taken to two wheels for transportation and recreational purposes. The rise in bicycle traffic, unfortunately, has given rise to an increase in bicycle accidents. Many of these accidents are caused by careless motorists who don’t know how to safely drive among bicycles or who willfully disregard the rights of bicyclists.
If you or someone close to you has been injured in a bicycle accident, it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible. At the law offices of Kristopher K. Greenwood & Associates, we are aggressive advocates for injured bicycle riders and those who have lost loved ones in fatal bicycle accidents. Our attorneys are dedicated to helping our clients obtain full and fair compensation for their losses.
Have You Been Injured In A Bicycle Accident?
Neither bicycles nor automobiles own the road exclusively, although the behavior of many motorists would lead you to believe otherwise. When drivers of cars and trucks fail to respect the rights of those in bicycles, the results can be tragic.
Common causes of bicycle accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Failure to yield right of way to the bicyclist
- Motorists running red lights or stop signs
- Motorists failing to allow sufficient room between the automobile and the bicycle when passing
If you have been injured in a bicycle accident, you may find yourself on the defensive, as the insurance adjuster tries to blame all or a portion of the accident on you. Insurance companies may also try to limit your compensation, undervaluing your bicycle and accessories, for instance.
Our attorneys understand the true toll of bicycle accidents and can determine the true value of your claim. As aggressive trial attorneys, we know how to find the facts and use them to make insurance companies pay. We will work aggressively and proactively to help you pursue compensation for your medical bills, wage loss, bicycle repair/replacement and other losses you have suffered as a result of this accident.
