Were You Injured by a Reckless Driver?
Far too many bicycle accidents are caused by inattentive drivers who fail to respect the cyclist's right of way. Cyclists have very little protection in case of an accident, especially when compared to drivers and their passengers. Even cyclists who practice defensive driving can still be at the mercy of a negligent or reckless driver who fails to check their blind spots or otherwise distracted, like by using a cell phone. Cyclists commonly suffer injuries after being run off the road, as well as being cut off when a car makes a right turn, and the injuries are frequently catastrophic when the automobile strikes the rider in a side-impact or rear-end collision at an intersection.
Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. for Personal Injury Representation
Common injuries suffered in bicycle accidents include spinal cord injury, road rash, collarbone fractures, brain injury and broken bones. Your settlement should include the expenses of emergency medical treatment in addition to any type of rehabilitative care you may require. You also deserve to receive compensation for your pain and suffering during the accident and for chronic pain you may experience in the future, as well as for your lost income. It is not advisable to accept a settlement from the insurance company before speaking with a Jacksonville personal injury attorney from our firm, as your claim may be valuable than you expect and you could waive your right to pursue the amount you deserve.
