The Dangers Of Bicycle Accidents
Other than a helmet, bicyclists have no protection in a collision with a vehicle, making them vulnerable to catastrophic or fatal injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in a bicycle accident, you will likely need significant compensation to cover the cost of your medical bills.
Kelley & Ferraro, LLP, provides experienced personal injury representation to victims and their families in Ohio. Our attorneys work diligently to hold the negligent party liable for your losses.
Biking has gained popularity in recent years. Unfortunately, most cities are not set up for cyclists to ride safely on city streets. Collisions with cars and trucks are far too common. In addition, children are frequent victims of bike accidents. School zones and parks are often the sites of bike accidents involving children.
Cyclists who are hit by a car typically suffer catastrophic injuries such as broken bones, amputations, traumatic brain injuries, back and neck injuries, and spinal cord injuries. These types of injuries can result in temporary or permanent disability requiring long-term medical treatment. The cost of long-term care from specialists far exceeds what most people can afford, even if they have health insurance.
To pay for your medical care, you will need compensation. We work with medical experts, life-care planners and economists to calculate the cost of your past and future damages. Whether through negotiation or trial, we will pursue full and fair compensation from the negligent party.
Our goal is to recover the damages you need to pay medical bills, cover lost wages and compensate you for pain and suffering. In wrongful death cases, you may also be entitled to compensation for funeral expenses and the personal loss of a loved one.
