Bike Accidents In Pennsylvania
While bicycle accidents represent a small fraction of all traffic collisions, bikers sustain more severe injuries than any other vehicle operator. Debilitating injuries equal lengthy periods of convalescence, paired with costly medical procedures and lost hours on the job. Unfortunately, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that cyclist injuries are on the rise. Our Philadelphia bike accident lawyers commonly handle cycling collision cases involving:
- Bike Accidents With Cars
- Bicycle & Car Collisions At Intersections
- Vehicles In The Bike Lane
- “Doored” While Biking In Philly
- Street Defect & Pothole Bicycle Accidents
- Children In Bicycle Accidents
In addition to the categories listed above, our Philadelphia personal injury lawyers are pleased to offer a free consultation to any bicyclist injured in Philadelphia – no matter the circumstances.
Contact A Philadelphia Bicycle Accident Lawyer
We strongly suggest that injured cyclists in Philadelphia contact a personal injury lawyer before reaching out to insurance companies. In our decades of experience, we’ve seen many bicyclists accept insufficient compensation offers. Insurance companies think only of their own bottom line, rather than taking bikers’ injuries and needs into account. They want to settle fast – at minimal cost and avoiding legal action.
The personal injury lawyers at Philly Bicycle Accident Guys want to protect your best interests. We’ll work closely with your medical professionals to determine the actual extent of your injuries so that we can pursue the maximum compensation to which you are entitled. With the help of a trusted team of professional accident investigators, we’ll reconstruct your bike accident to determine negligence accurately and thoroughly.
Our bicycle accident lawyers believe that no injured Philadelphia cyclist should go without expert legal counsel. That’s why we always offer our services on a contingency – fee basis, which means that you owe us nothing unless we secure a favorable settlement or verdict in your case. We also offer free consultations to all cyclists injured in Philadelphia bike accidents. Call (215) 563-7478 or complete our contact form to schedule an appointment today.
