Bicycle Accidents Lawyer Arizona
Many Arizona residents who were injured in bicycle accidents over the years turned to a bicycle accidents lawyer in Arizona from Yearin Law Office to recover their damages from those responsible for harming them. Some bicycle accidents are inconsequential, but others are far more serious, even catastrophic. Medical treatment alone can run into the many thousands of dollars. If hospital care is needed, or surgery is necessary, these factors drive the costs up exponentially. Most victims suffer a long list of additional damages related to the injury, including wages that they cannot earn because they cannot return to work until after they have sufficiently recovered. What are the rights of riders who were harmed by the careless or negligent actions of another bicyclist, a motorist, or someone else? They have the legal right to seek compensation for their damages. With the help of a practiced lawyer from our Arizona law firm, those who have been severely injured in bicycle accidents across the state can file a claim against the at-fault party. We can help you get the money you deserve from the at-fault party’s insurance carrier. Call us today to learn how we can help you turn things around so that you can get the medical care you need.
Receive Full Compensation for Your Bicycle Accident Damages
When a bicycle and an automobile make contact at speed, it rarely ends well for the bicyclist. They are unprotected and vulnerable, whereas the passenger vehicle’s driver is surrounded by metal and airbags. As a result, the bicyclist has a significantly higher likelihood of sustaining life-threatening or fatal injuries. In the wake of such an accident, the bicyclist may wonder what legal recourse they have for recovering their damages. If it was the car driver’s fault, they should be liable and a claim filed with their insurance company will ideally result in full compensation for the bicyclist. However, this rarely happens. The insurance carrier will typically offer compensation for only a small percentage of the damages. At that point, desperate to pay bills and seek medical treatment, the bicyclist may accept the offer. A better solution is to turn to a bicycle accidents lawyer in Arizona from Yearin Law Office, an Arizona law firm dedicated to representing the best interests of victims. We can help victims get the amount of compensation they deserve, even if that amount is extraordinarily large.
Get the Medical Treatment You Need and More
Catastrophic injuries require extensive and long term medical care which is prohibitively costly. Without a settlement from the at-fault party’s insurance company, the victim must use their own health insurance coverage and pay the remaining costs out of pocket, which is patently unfair to the victim. When damages exceed a certain amount, the victim is often unable to pay for their damages on their own. Yearin Law Office’s bicycle accidents lawyer in Arizona represents injured riders and provides the aggressive legal representation that they need to get the compensation that they deserve.
What Are the Most Important Things to Do After a Bicycle Accident?
First, whatever your involvement, stop on the scene and seek medical attention for anyone who has been hurt — including yourself. Fulfill your lawful obligation by cooperating with police, but take care not to admit any possible fault or traffic violation (as in, “I’m not sure if I looked before riding into the intersection”) to anyone. Definitely avoid giving a statement to an insurance adjuster without first consulting a personal injury lawyer.
What If I Am Sore But Believe My Injuries Aren’t Serious?
Please do not underestimate a sore knee, injured back, or any type of head trauma. We have worked with many clients whose injuries turned out to be more severe than they initially thought, leading to costly medical expenses and missed work. Play it safe with your own health — and with your right to compensation.
What If A Problem With My Bike Factored Into the Accident?
A cracked frame, twisted or broken fork, brake failure or other unusual outcome involving your bicycle may justify legal action against the manufacturer. Our respected San Francisco firm has extensive experience analyzing possible bike manufacturing and design defects, and we have succeeded with a wide range of products liability claims.
How Much Will It Cost for a Lawyer to Represent Me?
There are no up-front fees when you turn to our lawyers for a case evaluation. We focus on serious injury and wrongful death claims and will be honest with you if we cannot take your case. If we are able to represent you, we charge attorney fees only if and when you receive compensation via settlement or a verdict at trial.
