BICYCLE ACCIDENTs

RICHMOND BICYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER

We Stand with Bicyclists in Our Community

Bicycles offer a way for people to stay healthy and travel. However, due to negligent drivers, bicycle collisions are frequent and devastating. Bicycle accidents usually cause the bicyclist to suffer serious injuries that often have life-altering consequences. To make everything worse, bicycle accident victims are left at the mercy of insurance companies that downplay or deny responsibility however they can.

If you were hurt in a bicycle accident, then you should get the representation of a Richmond bicycle accident lawyer from Portner & Shure, P.A. Our attorneys are highly experienced in litigating catastrophic personal injury cases, like those often related to bicycle accidents. We will fight to obtain the compensation you deserve.

Bicycle Rules & Accidents

Many cities are working to make their streets more friendly to bicycle riders. Unfortunately, bicyclists have to share streets and roadways with motorists, some of whom negligently operate their vehicles. Many drivers are unaware that bicycle riders are permitted to drive on the street, pass a vehicle on either side, and proceed right through red lights if there is no danger from other vehicles. Motorists can cause collisions because they drive too closely to bicycle riders, cut off bicycle riders while turning, or are simply distracted while driving.

Richmond, Virginia Bicycle Accident Injuries

Injuries caused by bicycle collisions are often severe because bicycles provide no protection for bicycle riders. A crash that happens while a car is traveling relatively slowly can still be devastating to the bicyclist.

Common injuries from bicycle collisions include:

  • Brain injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries

The severity of these injuries often requires emergency medical treatment along with extensive rehabilitation. The economic cost of this treatment is severe and requires significant financial compensation. Both of these necessities can be obtained through a successful injury claim.

Damages for Injured Bicyclists

Virginia law allows bicycle accident victims to seek compensation for economic and non-economic damages. Medical bills, lost wages, future lost wages, and future medical care are all common examples of economic damages. Non-economic damages are meant to compensate a bicycle accident victim for the pain, suffering, trauma, and hardship they endured as a result of their injuries.

How Can We Help You?

Insurance companies frequently deny claims by bicycle accident victims in hopes that they do not have the energy or resources to pursue the claim further. Effective legal representation from a Richmond bicycle accident lawyer with our firm could be exactly what you need to counter an insurance company’s efforts.
