Bicycle accidents can be just as important as accidents involving a motor; so seeking a lawyer for a bicycle accident is understandable. Cycle accidents are increasing every year, especially as more people are opting for a “greener” way of life. Nearly 1/8 of all vehicle accidents involving fatalities, involve bicyclists. Cyclists deserve the same compensation as any other victim of an accident, due to the negligent behavior of another. In most accidents involving a vehicle, it is the bicycle rider who is going to be the one to receive injuries, resulting in medical bills and an inability to earn wages. Many times, these accidents are not reported to the police but through the use of an injury lawyer, bicycles can get fair compensation that they deserve.
Like all other accidents, the victim will have to face the insurance companies and their unwillingness to properly pay claims. Quick ways to fix this problem is presenting a quick settlement offer and then threaten to lower the amount if you retain the help of an attorney. Another method used by adjustors is to simply delay your claim for as long as possible knowing that you will probably agree to a very low settlement just to get the claim over with.
