The Colorado Springs bicycle accident lawyers at The Fang Law Firm know that bicyclists’ rights are often not respected by automobile drivers. In general, bicyclists are legally afforded the same rights as motor vehicles on the road in Colorado, and drivers are required to share the road accordingly. When you suffer injuries because a negligent or aggressive driver violated your rights, you deserve to be compensated.
Colorado Springs and surrounding area roads are busy with bicycle riders, and unfortunately, this means that bicycle accidents are not uncommon. Bike riders have little in the way of protection when they collide with a car that weighs 4,000 pounds or more, and serious injuries sustained in an accident are often debilitating.
Many law firms claim to handle bicycle accident cases, but attorneys at our firm actually do, and they have regularly represented clients in bicycle accident cases for more than ten years. We know that financial recovery is critical for injured bicyclists, especially when injuries are severe and ongoing medical care is necessary.
Our bike accident attorneys are skilled litigators with a successful trial practice. When insurance companies and defense attorneys know that your attorney is prepared to take your claim to trial, they are often more liberal with settlement offers. They may want to pay as little as possible for your claim, but they also want to avoid litigation costs and trial uncertainties.
We provide legal services to bicycle accident clients on a contingency fee basis. Our injury attorneys in Colorado Springs know that you may be struggling to pay medical bills, and if you are unable to work, you may be facing lost wages. We will not collect any attorneys’ fees until you have secured compensation for your serious injuries and damages.
Our Colorado Springs accident lawyers will go over the accident and resulting injuries in a free consultation and case evaluation. We will prepare your case for trial and take care of all communication with insurance companies. We will also work with you and your family to make sure that you secure maximum compensation, which may include property damage, medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If your injuries are permanent, you may be entitled to future medical expenses and lost earning capacity.
As previously mentioned, bike riders have very little protection when they collide with an automobile, and they frequently suffer severe injuries as a result. When bicycle accident injuries are fatal, surviving family members are left to pick up the pieces and move on without their loved one.
Close family members who sustain losses due to their loved one’s death may be entitled to compensation under a wrongful death claim. The decedent’s estate may recover compensation in some cases as well. If the bicyclist suffered injuries and damages due to the accident before he or she died, the estate might be compensated for those losses under a survival action.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a bicycle accident, contact The Fang Law Firm to schedule your free consultation and case evaluation. Drivers have an obligation to respect bicycle riders on the road. We know that bicycle accident injuries can be devastating, and we want to help you get the justice that you deserve. We will meet with you in person or over the phone to discuss your case and legal recovery options.
