Injuries in bicycle accidents range from minor scrapes and bruises to serious, life-threatening injuries. Head injuries are especially common. Even mild concussions have been linked to an increase risk of suicide. Any potential head injury should be taken seriously. Even if you were wearing a helmet in your bike crash, you may have a concussion. If you are in a bike crash of any severity, it is best to be checked over completely by a medical professional.
Concussions can require weeks to heal completely. During this time you may be restricted from activities and may not be able to work. This means that while your medical bills are piling up, your income is greatly restricted. We know that part of the compensation you should receive after a bicycle crash injury includes lost wages. We also believe that pain and suffering compensation should be a part of every settlement package. These losses are often ignored by the insurance company. That is why we work so diligently to represent the needs of our clients. We believe in putting the client first and will do everything in our power to get you fair and just compensation for your injuries.
