Why You Need a St. Louis Bicycle Accident Attorney
As a result of more people choosing to ride their bicycles to work, school or for recreational purposes, bicycle accident injuries are becoming more common.
Bicyclists have the same legal rights as motor vehicle operators. Meaning, that motor vehicle operators are required to keep a careful lookout for bicyclists just as they would other motor vehicles to prevent accidents. Yet, the most common cause of bike accidents are motorists turning left in front of cyclists. Also common is the right hand cut off. Less often, bikes are struck from behind, but with texting, and more and more drivers failing to pay attention, the rear-end collisions are becoming more common.
If you were injured in a bike accident involving a motor vehicle, you have the right to pursue compensation for your injuries, and need to choose a personal injury firm that knows first hand what your rights are and how to obtain money when bikes are hit by cars.
What Are My Rights in a Bicycle Accident?
Bicycle laws protect your rights. Bike riders have a right to safe travel on the roads yet cars, trucks, delivery vehicles and angry motorists all too often cause bike accidents and wrecks.
In addition to pain and suffering, a bike accident may result in life-altering injuries that result in huge medical bills but also affect your income and activities of daily living. If life-long care is needed we hire a Life Care Planner to determine the cost of your future medical care. Not just now but for the rest of your life. Motor vehicle accidents are often caused by driver carelessness or not paying attention. When a negligent driver causes a motor vehicle accident that injures a cyclist, their insurance policy is liable for the damage. If you have been injured in a bike accident, let the attorneys at Wolfgram Law fight for your rights on your behalf.
Your Rights in a Hit-and-Run Bicycle Accident
Injured bicyclists have the same rights as motor vehicle operators. But, what if the driver involved in a bike accident is a hit-and-run driver? Or, what if the driver does not have insurance?
If you were struck on your bicycle by a hit-and-run driver, or the driver turns out not to have insurance, Wolfgram Law can still collect money for your injuries, medical bills, and disability. The uninsured or “phantom” motorists, also known as “hit-and-run” drivers, may have gotten away, but you can still recover money for your injuries. Every policy of insurance in Missouri is sold with insurance to cover people who do not have insurance. So, even though the driver fled from the scene of the accident, you can still get paid.
