Bicycle and Bike Accidents

Bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as a driver of a motor vehicle. While many motorists are aware and careful not to strike another vehicle, they may not be so aware of how easy it is to run into a bicyclist. You may have been a victim of this. You might have been riding in a bike lane or crosswalk when struck by a vehicle, or you might have been struck because a motorist failed to check their blind spot. Whatever the circumstances, a bicycle accident can be serious, and you need an experienced personal injury attorney to make sure your rights are protected and to assure you are compensated for your losses.

Damages in Bicycle Accident Cases

There are two kinds of damages you might receive in assault and battery cases. The first is compensatory damages which are designed to compensate you for the losses you suffered as a result of the offense. For example, compensatory damages may include medical expenses, lost income, damages for pain and suffering, and loss of your future earning capacity. The other form of damages is punitive damages, which are designed to punish the person who committed the act and deter others from behaving similarly. A showing that the person who committed the act acted outrageously or maliciously is usually required to receive punitive damages.

When you have been badly injured as a result of a bicycle accident, you need the assistance of a personal injury lawyer to get you the damages you deserve. From injuries that occur at the scene of the accident to pain and health problems that can continue long after the accident, a personal injury attorney can help you be compensated for your injuries.
