    Bicycle Accidents Injury Lawyer

    The most common type of injury or fatal bicycle accident involves crashes with single vehicles. Cars are the most common vehicles involved in bicycle injury accidents, but buses and large trucks are also dangerous to bicyclists. In many cases, the driver of the vehicle is at fault for the vehicle accident and is liable for financial damages related to the injury.

    Bicyclists share the road with motor vehicles but have little protection if they are hit by a car, truck or bus. A helmet may reduce the chance of a head injury, but the rest of the body is largely unprotected. Fractured bones, back/spine damage, lacerations, crushing injuries and contusions are common in bike accidents. Even though many bicyclists wear helmets, head and brain injuries often occur when a large vehicle hits a bicyclist.

    Types of Injury Bike Accidents

    There are variations to bicycle crashes with other vehicles that are unlike wrecks that only involve motor vehicles. Bike accidents can occur anywhere, and the vehicle does not even need to be moving to put a bicyclist at risk. For example, car doors are a common cause of injury accidents for bicyclists. A driver can open their car door in front of a bike and seriously injure the rider. Other types of bike injury accidents include:

    • Hit and run accidents
    • Side-swipe collisions (common with large trucks)
    • Front end collisions (most common with passenger vehicles)
    • Left turn into bicyclist at intersection

    Regardless of how the injury accident occurs, when the driver of a vehicle is at fault, the bicyclist should be compensated for their injuries.

    Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

    Michael J.

    Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

    Angela K.

    I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
