Bicycle Car Accident Attorney

Motorcycle/Bicycle Accident Attorney

Roadways can be dangerous places for both motorcycles and bicycles. Neither are equipped with airbags, seatbelts, or the other safety features that are found in cars and trucks.

When a small bicycle or motorcycle collides with a vehicle weighing thousands of pounds, in the unfortunate case that an accident happens, the injury done to the rider can be extreme.

Too often, if the accident was caused by another driver, the victim’s settlement is often short-changed, if not outright denied by insurance providers. Insurance companies are in the business of making money. Their adjusters are trained to keep settlements as low as possible. That’s why you need an experienced motorcycle or bicycle accident attorney to represent your case and your claim.

 

“When I first consulted with an attorney at LawCare, the Utah Injury Law Alliance, I did not know if I had a case after crashing with my bicycle into someone’s dog that sprinted out into the street in front of me. Fortunately, they were able to give me the answers and legal help and financial settlement I needed.”

Reduce Your Risk of a Bicycle Accident in Utah

In regard to bicycles specifically, we see some cases in which riders are the cause of the collision. To minimize your risk of being at fault, when riding a bicycle make sure to do the following:

Always use provided bike lanes

Always ride with traffic, not against

Always adhere to traffic signals and signs

Always yield the right-of-way to motor vehicles

Know and use proper hand signals to alert drivers to your intended action

Always wear a helmet

Always use headlights and tail lights.

Don’t ride your bike after dark if at all possible.
