Over and over again I hear from bicycle crash victims who are frustrated because they think they cannot afford an attorney. They have been hurt, often through no fault of their own, and feel frustrated by the insurance and medical system. Frankly, I understand where they are coming from, but they are dead wrong.
Whether you have been struck by a motorist or crashed during a turn at an intersection, you likely face a world of hurt. Cyclists ride exposed, without the benefits of a steel frame and seat belt protecting them. That’s why most bicycle accidents involve injuries and usually, the worse the accident, the more significant the injury.
In an ideal world, the owner of the car would stop, render aid, wait for the police to arrive, and the injured cyclist would receive medical treatment. They would then receive a check to compensate them for their injuries, pain and suffering, and lost wages. But alas, this is not an ideal world.
Sometimes the motorist drives off, leaving the injured cyclist in their wake. Other times, the police report is skewed in favor of the driver, erroneously. And many times, the insurance company produces a settlement that is not enough to compensate for a broken finger, much less more significant injuries.
So what is the injured cyclist to do? After all, who has the money to hire a lawyer to represent their case? This is where many bikers run into problems. They falsely assume they cannot get a lawyer to represent them without paying thousands of dollars upfront. Rest assured, this is not the case.
