What Types of Compensation are Available After a Bike Accident?
A bicycle accident can be a traumatic experience. Because bicyclists are so exposed, they are highly vulnerable to injury if they get into a collision with a vehicle. Bicycle accidents often result in severe injuries, including brain injuries, spine injuries, lacerations, broken bones, and more. In addition to the physical pain of these injuries, the costs of treatment can be great.
The law provides that people injured in accidents caused by the negligence of another can pursue compensation from the responsible party. Compensable damages in bicycle accidents typically include, but are not limited to:
- Past and future medical bills
- Rehabilitation costs
- Lost income
- Pain and suffering
Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents
Most bicycle accidents occur when drivers are driving aggressively or are simply not paying attention to their surroundings. The following are some of the ways that bicycle accidents happen:
- Passing a bicyclist without enough distance
- Merging into a lane with a bicyclist
- Unexpectedly backing up
- Opening a car door in the path of an oncoming cyclist
- Turning left in front of an oncoming cyclist
Bicycle accidents can also be caused by unsafe road conditions, including construction debris, potholes, and uneven pavement. In these cases, the city, construction company, or other entity may be held liable for your injuries. It is important to consult with an experienced Atlanta personal injury attorney who can investigate your case, establish liability, and determine how much compensation you may be eligible for.
