Do You Have a Bicycle Accident Claim?

If you were hurt in a bike crash involving a motor vehicle, the following factors can help you determine whether you have a case.

  • Negligence: This is the concept that all personal injury cases rely on, and it means that someone acted in a careless or reckless manner. If someone else was negligent and caused the crash that resulted in your injuries, you likely have a claim.
  • Injuries: Personal injury claims are meant to compensate you for the injuries and losses you sustained as a result of an accident. If you have injuries, you need to learn more about your right to file a personal injury claim.
  • Medical expenses: After an accident, you will likely have a lot of medical costs associated with your injuries. When this is the case, a personal injury claim can help you seek to recover those costs.
  • Missing work: Your lost income is another factor that will be considered in a personal injury claim. Additionally, if you cannot return to the same line of work after the crash, a personal injury claim can help you seek compensation for your lost earning capacity.
  • Pain: You may find it difficult to place a value on the immense amount of pain that you’ll feel after a bicycle accident. An attorney can help you evaluate this pain and demand compensation for it.

These are just a few factors our El Paso bicycle accident attorney will take into consideration when determining whether you have a personal injury claim.
