Driving a car next to a large 3-trailer truck can be a very scary experience but not necessarily more frightening than riding a bicycle in everyday traffic. But you don’t ride your bicycle to get scared out of your wits; you ride for enjoyment, for the gas mileage, for exercise, and for cleaner air.
At Ladah Law Firm, PLLC, we understand your predicament. As experienced Las Vegas bicycle accident lawyers, we know the dynamics of bicycle accidents and the devastating injuries that can and do occur. If you have been injured in a bicycle accident due to the negligence of car, truck, or motorcycle, you need to know your rights and responsibilities now.
Just as in a car accident, you need to gather as much information about the driver of the car, the accident, and any reports filed by the police. Unfortunately, you may be banged up and unable to take care of those matters. That is where an experienced bicycle accident attorney with Ladah Law on your side can help you retain your rights and receive the compensation you need to recover. We take care of the details you didn’t even know were important.
Similar to a car accident, we will seek for compensation for your injuries and other losses from the driver’s car insurance. We make sure you are covered for your medical bills, lost income, rehabilitation, and even pain and suffering.
Many bicyclists are hit by cars, and the cars don’t stop. Then what? In most cases, we can seek for compensation for you from your own car insurance through the clause covering uninsured motorists. This clause also covers hit-and-run. Even though you weren’t in your car, your accident usually entitles you to this coverage. Your insurance company won’t be happy about your claim and may even turn down your claim. We make sure they honor their commitment to you.
If you have been hit by a car while riding your bicycle, give us a call for a free initial consultation. We can protect your rights and secure your future.
