What else can be an adventure than riding a bike. Besides being an adventure it is a complete exercise of your muscles, legs, thighs, feet, elbows and in fact the whole body. It keeps you fit and healthy. But nothing comes without negative aspects. There are always certain dangers linked to riding a bicycle such as slipping or hitting a tree stump. One of them is a crash with an upcoming car or truck. That’s the last thing you expect to happen with you. Bicycle accidents turn out to be quite a nasty business. You may suffer from serious injuries. It doesn’t matter if you were wearing a helmet or not. It is a naked ride. You don’t have any cushions or seat belts to save you. Whatever comes your way will hit your body. If you remain somehow safe from the impact with the car, you are highly likely to sustain injuries in your impact with the ground.
This may end up in broken bones and deep wounds in the skin. You are highly likely to suffer from psychological trauma. Your sufferings will increase in case the accident is a serious one. Paralysis, head injuries, back injuries, broken arms and limbs are some of the serious results of a crash. That’s why you need compensation for the damages. And an expert attorney by your side can help you get the compensation you deserve.
If driver’s negligence is responsible for the accident, you are eligible for compensation for your current as well as future expenses and lost wages. You will need to prove the negligence of the driver in order to get compensation. Now that’s the hardest part. The extent of your injuries will be measured. In case of simple injuries single medical opinion will be enough. But the injuries are severe, multiple medical opinions are required. The extent of all your damages need to be calculated and a demand is sent to insurance company of the car driver. The first try always is to reach a settlement. But in case a settlement is out of question, a negligence case will be filed in the court.
Now here comes the hard part. You have to prove in the court that the accident happened due to negligence of the driver. You have to determine which fault of the driver caused the accident. Of course the driver will take the stance that the rider got into traffic, causing the accident. That’s why you need help of an expert attorney who can calculate the reasonable costs for you and help you in reaching a settlement. Otherwise the attorney should be experienced and qualified enough to prepare your claim to file in the court, prove that negligence of the car driver caused the accident and ultimately help you in winning the case. Proving other party’s fault in the accident is the very important. And you can’t do it on your own. You should immediately contact law firms such as Christensen Law firm.
