Do You Have Questions About Your Case?

We Have the Answers You’re Looking For

  • Questions

  • What Is The Statute Of Limitations?

    Answer

    Knowing how long you have to file a claim is paramount to your case. If you exceed the statute of limitations, you will not receive the settlement you deserve. Every state has its own statute of limitations when it comes to personal injury claims. Do not hesitate to get in touch with our firm today to learn how long you have.

  • Who Can I File A Claim Against After Being Injured?

    Answer

    While the most common claim is against the at fault driver, you may be entitled to file a claim for the negligent design or manufacturing of the bicycle. In addition, it may be possible for you to file a claim for the negligent maintenance of the vehicle that hit you. Finally, depending upon the circumstances of your case, you may be able to file a claim against the city or government agency responsible for the design and maintenance of the path or roadway you were cycling on.

  • Following My Accident, Who Will Pay For My Medical Bills?

    Answer

    Insurance coverage can be complicated. If the individual responsible for your injuries has personal injury protection coverage, your medical bills will be covered by it. If the driver does not have this coverage, your auto insurance or Health Insurance Company will provide the coverage. We will work with insurance companies to ensure the appropriate entity pays for your medical bills.

  • Do I Need To Hire A Personal Injury Attorney?

    It is vital to hire a bicycle accident attorney as soon as possible. Having an experienced injury attorney in your corner will greatly increase your chances of a favorable case outcome.
