If you’ve sustained injuries on a bicycle, contact our Baton Rouge bicycle accident attorney today. With eco-friendly ways of traveling becoming more popular, bicycle accidents are also on the rise. Cycling is good exercise and keeps us fit as well as the environment clean. Although major roads and streets have designated bicycle lanes, accidents still occur. Since automobiles are larger than bicycles, it is usually the cyclist that suffers injuries. Physical exposure makes cyclists more vulnerable to injuries.
If someone you know suffered from injuries in a bicycle accident, you may want to pursue legal counseling. An experienced Louisiana personal injury lawyer can help you evaluate your options better and make an informed decision. Statistics show that a bicyclist is fatally injured every 6 hours. Collisions with cars cause approximately 30 percent of serious injuries and deaths.
There are a lot of reasons which can cause bicycle accidents. A motorist who turns directly in front of a bicyclist, a distracted driver, and the driver’s failure to look both ways at a stop sign, can all lead to an accident.
In order to prevent bicycle accidents, automobile drivers as well as cyclists need to be extra careful. In many states, traffic laws apply to bicyclists and motorists equally. Wearing helmets while on a bicycle can also be effective to a certain extent in providing protection from head injuries. Defective equipment and manufacturer’s negligence can also lead to accidents quite often.
If a negligent motorist causes bicycle accidents, then responsibility falls on the individual for any incurred injuries and damages. The manufacturer or seller is liable if you suffered injuries as a result of defects in the bicycle or the safety equipment. In the event of bad roads or unsafe road conditions, you can pursue legal action against the local municipality or county.
A Baton Rouge bicycle accident attorney who is familiar with bicycle law can assess your situation and gather evidence to support your claim. They can investigate the incident and check out the damage sustained to the bicycle. An examination of the bicycle can defend against allegations by the motorist of the fault lying with the bicyclist. If fault of the motorist is successfully proven, it can help in securing you the compensation you deserve. Adequate compensation will be that which covers the costs of medical expenses, the damages caused to your bicycle, loss of income caused by your absence from work due to injury, costs of rehabilitation, non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, as well as the emotional trauma caused.
