As more and more people are taking up bicycle riding as a hobby, more and more riders are at risk. This is due in large part to vehicle drivers being more distracted by cell phones and other electronics than ever before. A morning exercise ride can turn into a life-changing catastrophic event in a split second. At Snellings Law, we have handled numerous bicycle-vehicle collision cases. Due to lack of protection, bicycle riders are at an extreme risk to suffer severe injuries or even death. Our attorneys will move into action immediately to secure important evidence as well as speak to any potential witnesses. We will conduct a detailed investigation in order to prove liability early on and prevent insurance companies from trying to avoid responsibility. If you or a loved one has been injured while riding a bicycle due to someone else’s negligence, please call us to set up your free consultation.
SHARING THE ROAD
It is no secret that there are many drivers on the roadway that simply do not like bicycle riders traveling on “their” roadways. Sometimes, this can lead to aggressive driving around the bicyclist causing crashes. At Snellings Law, we recognize that our roadways belong to everyone and vehicle drivers are required by law to respect bicyclists just as they would any other vehicle on the roadway.
CRASHES WITH NO VEHICLE CONTACT
Many times, there is no contact between the vehicle and the bicyclist, but a vehicle’s actions cause a bicyclist to crash. Simply because there is no contact does not absolve the vehicle of liability. At Snellings Law, we have experience working up these type of cases when insurance companies attempt to deny liability based on “no contact.” If this has happened to you or a loved one, please call us today.
