Some cycling accidents result in nothing more than a couple scraped knees or a little road rash. But far too often, injuries incurred in bicycle crashes are severe. Broken bones, muscle and tendon tears, spinal injuries, and traumatic brain injuries are all too common. These injuries require prompt medical treatment and a period of recovery time. For the worst of these injuries, disabilities will remain for life. Although no one expects to be involved in a crash, all cyclists should be prepared to handle one if it occurs.
When you are involved in a crash, the phone starts ringing almost immediately. The insurance company will pursue you, attempting to get you to accept a settlement. It may seem like the easy choice, but accepting a low-ball offer can leave you financially responsible for thousands of dollars of unpaid medical bills. We believe that cyclists deserve better than this. If you or a family member have been hurt in a Kansas bike crash, contact the team of lawyers at the Law Firm of Kass & Moses today.
