Injured while riding your bike?
When you ride a bike, you may pay the price for the negligence of others. Even if you follow all the rules — wearing a helmet, putting on reflecting clothing, riding in the bike lane, signaling — there are circumstances beyond your control that can result in a bike accident and cause significant injury.
The main causes of bike accidents include:
- Motor vehicle drivers
- Poorly maintained road surfaces
- Broken sidewalks
- Road or bike lane obstructions
- Defective bicycle equipment
Bicyclists can sustain severe injuries in these collisions: broken ribs, skull fractures, tissue damage and more. At Hanratty Law Group, we have a great deal of experience working with bicyclists involved in bike accidents and championing their claims against insurance companies and other parties. We have served as reputable bike accident attorneys in Las Vegas and Summerlin for more than a decade and will fight to get the compensation you deserve after a car struck you and your bicycle.
What Compensation Can I Receive?
In Nevada, bicyclists can receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and damage to their property.
What If I Was Partly At Fault?
Even if the bike accident was partly due to your own actions, you can still recover damages if you were less than 51 percent responsible. We will advocate on your behalf in that determination.
Should I Talk To An Insurance Company?
The responsible party’s insurance company may make an initial offer of compensation, but you should know that this will probably be too low. Insurance companies try to settle cases for as little as possible, since people seldom know the true value of their claim. We will take up your cause and ensure that any resulting settlement is fair. Many of these cases never get to the courtroom, but as an experience bike attorney, we are willing to litigate if necessary.
