How a Lawyer For Bicycle Accidents Can Help You
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released its data regarding 2015 bicycle accidents. During 2015, 818 cyclists lost their lives, and 45,000 were injured in traffic-related accidents. The number of bicycle deaths increased 12.2 percent from 2014 to 2015. Michigan had the sixth highest bicycle accident fatality rate with 33 deaths that year.
If you are injured in a Michigan bicycle accident, you may be reluctant about filing an accident claim. However, your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages can reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, especially if you suffered permanent harm. You should not bear the financial burden of another party’s negligent, careless, or reckless behavior. Don’t allow the insurance adjuster for the other party convince you that you don’t have a claim or that your rights as a bicyclist are limited. You have the same rights to file an accident claim that a driver or passenger has who is injured in a traffic accident. Let our Michigan bicycle accident lawyers defend and protect your legal right to receive a fair and full settlement for your accident claim.
