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.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders 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 & Sanders.

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 got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
