It only takes a moment for a driver to be distracted, a car to swerve to miss an animal, or someone to overlook you—and a bicycle crash can occur. One moment you are enjoying your bike ride, and the next you are in severe pain and are laying on the ground confused as to what happened.
This situation is shocking for anyone, and the physical damage is done. But often the most difficult to overcome is the emotional and financial damage.
Some bicycle crash injuries are so severe that surgery is required. Surgery often means an extended period of hospitalization and recovery. In some cases, more than one surgery is necessary to repair the damage incurred in your bike crash. Surgery may be required when a bone is broken so severely that a metal plate and screws are needed to support the bone as it heals. Or you may need surgery if you have damage to any of your internal organs.
No matter the reason, if surgery is required, the associated medical bills will be high. Even minor surgeries can cost in excess of $10,000, and when you add in the hospital stay, medications, scans, and tests, the costs can skyrocket.
When a cyclist is hurt, even if they believe they might have been at fault for the accident, they need to find an experienced bike attorney immediately to protect your rights in a serious bicycle crash.
Within days after your accident, you will likely receive a phone call from an insurance adjuster. They may seem friendly at first, asking about your general condition and how you are feeling. But keep in mind that they work for the insurance company. They are trained to deliver to you as small a settlement as possible. Instead of looking out for your well-being, they are looking out for their company’s bottom line. That is why it is important to have the best bicycle law attorney on your side.
