Bicyclists Have Rights and We Help Protect Them

by | September 2nd, 2019

When you ride your bike through Norfolk, VA, you know that you face certain dangers that don’t always exist if you’re driving your own vehicle or riding the bus. However, you also expect to be reasonably safe and that other motorists will take the necessary precautions to avoid causing accidents. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen, and innocent bicyclists get struck by vehicles far too often in Virginia and throughout the U.S. every year.

Bicycle accident injuries can be devastating, even when riders wear helmets and other protective gear. If you were hurt on your bicycle due to someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible to pursue compensation for your medical bills and any lost wages. Although you weren’t traveling on a motorized vehicle, you still have the same rights as everyone else when you use Virginia’s roadways when you’re legally allowed to be on them and you’re following the rules of the road.

At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we know that many bicyclists feel helpless after accidents, and they may not even consider pursuing compensation. That’s because it’s easy for bicyclists to feel like they’re at fault for their own accidents. However, our Norfolk bicycle accident lawyers know how to investigate crashes and collect evidence that proves bicyclists weren’t at fault for their own accidents or injuries.

When you contact us, we’ll do everything in our power to help you get maximum compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Call today for a free consultation.
