It can be challenging to prove liability in a bicycle injury case, meaning your compensation for damages and losses will hang in the balance. It is important that you reach out to an experienced bicycle accident lawyer as soon as possible. The liable party will most likely attempt to put the blame on you, and insurance providers often avoid taking responsibility for cases with serious injuries.

Your bicycle accident injuries might cost several thousand dollars in hospital bills, physical therapy, lost earnings, and more. Your injuries may be permanent or life-changing if you sustain a brain or head injury, broken bones, disfiguration, spinal cord damage, or worse.
