How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help?
If you’ve been involved in a collision while riding a bike, your life may be drastically changed by injuries that affect you physically, psychologically, and financially.
If the collision involved a vehicle, including a car, truck, motorcycle, bus, taxi, or other vehicle, you can file a personal injury claim and due the driver for damages. This is true even if the accident was a hit and run and the driver fled the scene. You can also recover damages from the driver’s insurance company, or your own. However, dealing with insurance companies can be difficult, even for the most basic claims, and particularly in challenging situations involving multiple vehicles, hit and runs or other complicating factors.
An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you navigate the system, will help explain your options, and will help you prepare all necessary medical and other documents needed to substantiate your claim.
