Bicycle Accident Lawyers in Topeka

Fighting for the Rights of Injured Bikers

Despite bicycling becoming an ever more popular alternative to driving, many of our roads are not built to ensure bicyclist’s safety. Without bicycle lanes or even wide shoulders, riders are especially at risk of being involved in an accident. As a bicyclist, any accident can be a serious one: While drivers are unlikely to suffer injury when they hit a bicyclist, the victim may suffer severe and even life-changing injuries. Our team is here to help you hold negligent drivers accountable for their actions. We offer top-tier support to bicycle accident victims, advising them of their legal options and guiding them through the claims process. The types of injuries bicyclists are prone to may come with costs including medical bills, lost wages, and more. We want to help you maximize your compensation, so you have the means you need to recover fully.

Cause and Liability in Bicycle Accidents

Bicyclists and drivers are both responsible for following the rules of the road. However, in collisions between the two, drivers are slightly more likely to be at fault. Sometimes, a driver does not see a bicyclist because they are not looking for road users with small profiles. In other cases, drivers act carelessly, violating right-of-way rules and failing to share the road. Bicycle accidents can be caused by drivers who:
  • Make a left turn across the path of an oncoming bicyclist
  • Merge into a turn lane or across a bike lane without looking
  • Open their door into a passing bicyclist
  • Pass a bicyclist without leaving enough distance
  • Pull out of a parking spot, driveway, or alleyway into the path of an oncoming bicyclist
  • Turn right into bicyclists who are traveling straight through an intersection
Often, accidents happen so fast that it can be hard to remember the details—especially if you were badly injured. A qualified lawyer can investigate the accident and turn up evidence, such as surveillance footage or witness testimony, that clearly shows who was to blame. Even if you think the other party was obviously at fault, they may deny it to their insurer—so you want to have a strong case as you go into settlement negotiations. Our attorneys can represent you if your claim is challenged.

When Should I File a Bicycle Accident Claim?

If you were involved in an accident that was not your fault, you should pursue an insurance claim against the individual who caused the accident. Even seemingly minor injuries can disrupt your life for days or weeks—and sometimes, they may turn out to be much more serious than they seemed at the scene of the wreck. When you file a claim, you can request compensation for damage to your bicycle as well as medical expenses related to:
  • Bone crush injury
  • Dislocated joints
  • Facial injury
  • Fractures
  • Head or neck injury
  • Internal organ damage
  • Road rash
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Traumatic brain injury
If you believe you might have a claim, come talk to our attorneys to learn your rights. No case is too big or small for us to take.

Receiving Compensation After a Bicycle Accident

Another way an attorney can help your claim is by helping you understand how to maximize your settlement. Insurers typically make initial offers that are far below the amount you deserve. While the money might cover your current hospital bills and then some, the expenses from a wreck can multiply in less obvious ways. We can help you calculate the amount you deserve for:
  • Medical bills
  • Future medical needs
  • Lost wages
  • Decreased earning capacity
  • Disfigurement or disability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
If your injury requires extensive treatment or will leave you with a lasting disability, it is extremely important to ensure your settlement will cover the costs you can expect to face far into the future. We do our best to ensure every client is fully informed, so they can make the right decision when they receive a settlement offer.
