Your Rights Still Apply

Just because you’re on a bicycle doesn’t mean you’ve been stripped of your rights. Not only do you have the right to be on the road but you have the right to make claims against any automobile drivers who violate laws and cause damage to your bicycle or your persons. In the case where a driver uses negligent judgment which causes you injury, you absolutely have the right to seek damages for the repair of your bike, any medical bills you incur, as well as for pain and suffering. You still have rights!

Call in the Professionals

Unlike with automobiles, where insurance kicks in the second those two fenders touch, as a bicyclist it’s often tougher to obtain the money you’re entitled to when a driver is at fault and causes you harm. This is why it’s always best to call in the professionals in order to make sure you receive the money you’re owed. An experienced accident attorney will be able to extract the cash you’re owed so that you can focus on your recovery. When you have an accident involving a bicycle, always remember you have rights. Just remember to call in the professionals.
