Riding a bicycle should be an enjoyable activity. Unfortunately, accidents happen, and cyclists can suffer significant injuries when a collision occurs with a vehicle. However, the claims process can be complex.
When you’ve been hurt in a cycling accident that was caused by another party’s negligence, you need a bicycle accident attorney to help protect your rights when seeking compensation.
Triumph Law’s personal injury lawyer can be invaluable in helping you recover the maximum compensation you deserve.
How An Attorney Can Protect Your Rights After a Bicycle Accident
After a bicycle crash, you may be facing extensive medical treatment and unable to work. Your injuries could result in a mountain of medical bills, lost wages from missed work, and additional expenses.
The at-fault driver’s insurance company will likely try to lowball you on a settlement offer to resolve your claim quickly and cheaply. A personal injury attorney levels the playing field against the insurance company and aggressively protects your rights.
Your lawyer will deal with the insurance adjuster so you can focus on your recovery. We will build a strong claim by gathering evidence, determining all available sources of compensation, calculating damages, and negotiating for a full and fair settlement.
How a Lawyer Can Help With Your Claim
Here are some of the key ways having a lawyer benefits you after a bicycle collision:
Investigating the Accident
Your attorney will visit the accident scene, interview witnesses, obtain police reports, review video footage, and gather other evidence to prove how the crash occurred and who was at fault.
Dealing With the Insurance Company
Insurance adjusters represent the defendant, not you. Your lawyer will communicate with the insurer on your behalf to demand full and fair compensation.
Your lawyer must prove the defendant’s negligence caused your accident and injuries. They know how to establish liability in bicycle accident cases.
Your lawyer will perform a thorough accounting to ensure that all of your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses are considered when seeking compensation.
Negotiating a Settlement
Your attorney has the leverage, resources, and experience to negotiate aggressively with the insurer for maximum compensation for your claim.
Taking the Case to Trial
If a fair settlement can’t be reached through negotiation, your lawyer is prepared to take the case to court to fight for your rights.

Damages You Can Collect in a Bicycle Accident Claim
There are a few types of compensation that you may be eligible for in a pedestrian accident case:
This includes costs associated with emergency medical care, hospitalization, surgery, physical therapy, prescription medications, and any ongoing medical care required as a result of your bike accident injuries. All reasonable and necessary medical costs should be compensated.
If your injuries prevented you from working or caused you to miss time from your job, you may be entitled to reimbursement for lost income during that time. This could include lost pay as well as lost benefits, commissions, and bonuses.
Pain and Suffering
Even after medical bills are covered, accident victims often experience physical pain, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and other non-economic damages. Compensation may be awarded to attempt to make the injured person “whole” again. There are no set formulas used to determine pain and suffering damages.
If your bike, helmet, or other property was damaged in the accident, you should receive compensation to repair or replace that property. The compensation should cover the actual cash value of the damaged property.
Future Medical Costs and Lost Earnings
Ongoing injuries may require future medical care and can impact your future earning potential. Compensation may be awarded to cover these long-term impacts as well.
