What Bicycle Accident Injuries Could Qualify Me for Compensation?

Bicycle accidents can lead to serious, often life-threatening, injuries. The vast difference in size and weight between a bicycle and any motor vehicle, coupled with the lack of any protective barrier around the bicycle, means particularly devastating outcomes for bicyclists.

Some of the most common injuries in bicycle accidents are head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). TBIs, which include concussions, can lead to long-term or permanent impairments, affecting cognition, motor functions, emotional stability, and other aspects of a victim’s life.

TBI symptoms may not appear immediately after the accident and can manifest days or even weeks later. Bicycle accidents can cause them even when cyclists properly wear helmets, with side effects that may last weeks, months, or years, seriously impairing an individual’s ability to carry on with their normal activities and pursuits.

Spinal cord injuries are another serious consequence of bicycle accidents. They can result in partial or total paralysis, requiring extensive medical care and rehabilitation, and often drastically altering the victim’s quality of life.

Such injuries may require ongoing medical treatment, assistive devices, home modifications, and personal care assistance.

We can include these expenses in the compensation you seek through a bicycle accident lawsuit or claim. Our lawyers can present compelling evidence on your behalf to account for the full scope of these losses. 

Other losses for which you may claim compensation include: 

  • Internal organ damage
  • Lacerations
  • Broken bones
  • Dental injuries
  • Lost income, earnings, and benefits
  • Property damage
  • Psychological trauma (PTSD)
  • Pain and suffering

The latter often gets overlooked, but victims might suffer from significant emotional impacts after a bicycle accident, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, or other mental health issues following the accident. 

A skilled lawyer can not only provide you with valuable support and guidance, but can also obtain the resources and access to the services you need to recover. 

No matter the nature of the injuries, a bicycle accident can lead to substantial medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and diminished quality of life. At TopDog Law, our committed lawyers understand these complex injuries and their impacts. We strive to ensure that you receive full compensation for your injuries to cover past, current, and future losses related to the accident.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How long after a bicycle accident do I have to file a lawsuit?

The time limit for filing a bicycle accident lawsuit, also known as the statute of limitations, varies from state to state. Moreover, some states make exceptions based on the specifics of the case. Consult our experienced bicycle accident lawyers as soon as possible to ensure you don’t miss the filing deadline. Generally, the sooner we begin investigating your claim, the better.

2. What should I do immediately after a bicycle accident?

First and foremost, seek immediate medical attention, even if your injuries seem minor. Some injuries may not manifest immediately and can worsen with time. If possible, collect evidence at the scene, such as photographs, eyewitness contact information, and contact information for the at-fault party. However, your attorney can compile evidence and pursue any necessary information. Avoid discussing fault or providing statements to the at-fault party’s insurance company without first consulting your attorney.

3. What if I was partly at fault for the bicycle accident?

Even if you partially caused the accident, you might still recover compensation. Many states follow the principle of comparative negligence, where the compensation you receive decreases in proportion to your degree of fault. However, each state has its own laws, including some that pertain specifically to cyclists. Discuss your case with our experienced bicycle accident lawyers to understand your rights and legal options. 

4. How will TopDog Law determine the value of my bicycle accident claim?

At TopDog Law, we calculate the value of your claim based on a comprehensive assessment of your losses. This includes tangible damages like medical bills, property damage, and lost income, as well as intangible damages like pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life. We aim to secure a compensation package or award that covers all the losses you’ve incurred due to the accident.
