Bicycle Accident Lawyers in Lynnwood, Kent & Everett
Bicycle accidents are increasingly common as more and more people choose cycling for exercise and transportation in and around urban areas. Unfortunately, motorists do not always see bicycles, particularly at intersections and in crosswalks. The law office of Feldman & Lee represents injured cyclists, determining the costs of their injuries in working with economists, care planners, and medical professionals.
Since head trauma and spinal cord injuries are common in bike accidents, we consult neurologists who can testify to the long-term effects of a serious concussion or brain injury. Quantifying the need for future treatment, as well as compensation for your pain and suffering, our office ensures you receive the compensation you deserve for your bike injury.
Steps You Can Take Now to Help Your Case
Evidence is crucial to success in any case—especially in personal injury matters. A broken helmet or smashed bicycle frame can tell forensic experts a great deal about the force of impact and how an accident happened. So remember, if involved in an accident:
- Take photos of your injuries
- Keep a diary of your daily condition
- Keep copies of any medical bills, including prescription costs
- Request and keep copies of medical records, x-rays, and other diagnostic tests
- Keep anything from the accident you can, including bicycle, helmet, and broken reflectors
Bicycle Accident Attorneys
It’s common for an insurance company to try and settle a case as soon as possible after an accident. In cases where soft tissue injuries or broken bones are involved, insurers realize it may take weeks or months for the full impact of an injury to be known. If you make or sign a statement, agreement to a settlement, or disclose certain kinds of information now, you may compromise your ability to pursue future damages when the full nature of your injuries becomes evident to you.
Contact Feldman & Lee Today
Even if a claims adjuster recommends you settle now or give up any chance of settling later, talk to an experienced lawyer before agreeing to anything. Once we’re on board, any communication between you and an insurer must come through our office. We protect your rights and put insurers on notice that they pay a fair settlement or go to court and face bad publicity and the wrath of a jury.
