It doesn't matter whether your passion is discovering new trails or just using your bike to carry groceries and get to work. Regardless of who you are or why you ride, getting in a wreck with your bicycle is sure to bring your journey to a screeching halt.

No matter how severe the incident or how complex the circumstances, we deliver aggressive, creative legal representation you can depend on.

The Dynamics Of Bicycle Accidents

Most riders are well aware that they need to be careful around vehicles, but sadly, motorists don't seem to afford them the same degree of consideration. Many drivers who don't see riders negligently fail to look out for them, and in some cases, those who do notice cyclists don't give them enough space to stay safe.

Should you sue for damages? Consider the following:

  • You may be eligible for compensation if the motorist was negligent or reckless.
  • Your own conduct may be called into question in court or be deemed a contributing factor.
  • Your state may have special rules regarding how motorists and cyclists should share the road.

Each accident is different, so it's important to understand the unique factors that may impact the outcome of your case. At The Rain Law Firm, our lawyers have 45 years of combined experience and we want to help you pursue justice and prove your case in court.

Don't Try Your Case Without Representation

Although standard traffic laws cover some forms of compensation and restitution, they only go so far. Even if the person who neglectfully caused your accident is convicted of a criminal offense, he or she might not be made to pay for your injuries. Seeking a judgment in civil court is often the only way to force another party to take responsibility, and it may also serve as evidence for subsequent insurance disputes.

It's essential to fight for justice proactively, so why not grab life firmly by the handlebars? Ask a bicycle accident attorney at The Rain Law Firm about recovering from your bike accident by calling 855-368-8956 or 855-330-RAIN today, or send us a message to explore your legal options.
