Why Should I Hire a Bicycle Accident Lawyer?

Bicycle accidents can be severe because bicycles offer riders little protection. Bicycle accidents can cause severe and life-threatening injuries, resulting in significant pain, suffering, and possible lifetime disability.

It is always in your best interest to seek legal advice when you have been involved in an accident. An experienced personal injury lawyer can maximize your recovery and take the burden of proving your case off your shoulders while you recover. A bicycle accident lawyer will bring experience and resources to your Maryland personal injury case. Your bicycle accident lawyer will perform many services, some of which include:

  • Investigation. Investigating your case and gathering evidence to prove fault and liability. Insurance companies are notoriously difficult to negotiate with and it is their job to settle and pay out as little as possible.
  • Negotiation. Working with the negligent party or the insurance company to negotiate a fair settlement for you. Negotiating with insurance companies on your own can be risky.
  • Litigation. Taking your case to trial if a settlement cannot be reached. Your lawyer can coach you on what to say and how to say it when you are discussing your accident with police, investigators, or insurance companies. Your lawyer will also advise you on what not to say. Lawyers are trained to know the law and to know what you should avoid saying that could inadvertently make it appear that you were at fault or contributed to the accident.
  • Compensation.Having an experienced lawyer on your side will maximize what you can recover for your injuries. When injuries are especially severe, it is more important than ever to have good legal representation to ensure that you recover the maximum amount of money to compensate you, not only for your past pain, suffering, and medical bills but for any issues that could arise out of the accident in the future.
