Western New York bicyclists are in a tough position. They are expected to follow the same rules of the road as cars, but are much more vulnerable when a personal injury accident occurs. While car drivers expect bicyclists to follow the same rules of the road as they do, they don’t always follow these rules in looking out for the safety of bike riders.
Many drivers think bicyclists are supposed to watch out for them, not the other way around. This is especially dangerous for bike riders. Because they do not carry insurance like cars, bicyclists often do not know where to turn when it comes to getting their medical bills and lost wages paid following a personal injury accident.
We act quickly in bicycle accident cases to make sure that our clients immediate expenses are paid by the appropriate insurance while pursuing a personal injury claim against the driver who caused the injury.
