Calhoun Bicycle Accident Attorney Pursues Justice for Clients
Accomplished lawyer advocates for victims of Georgia bike crashes
Whether you’re enjoying a recreational ride, biking to your job or racing against other cyclists, a bad encounter with a motor vehicle could lead to a severe injury. At Groover Law firm, LLC in Calhoun, I am an aggressive attorney who is determined to secure fair compensation for Georgia cyclists hurt in bike crashes. Without the protection that someone has while inside a car or truck, a bicycle rider who is hit could sustain an injury that changes their life forever. With so much on the line, you deserve a lawyer who has a proven track record of collecting substantial compensation for personal injury victims.
Various types of motorist negligence can cause bicycle accidents
The size and speed of motor vehicles put cyclists at a severe disadvantage. Add a driver’s negligence to the mix and the result could be disastrous. My firm litigates bike crash cases arising out of all types of motorist negligence and misconduct, including:
- Speeding and other moving violations — Traveling too quickly, changing lanes without signaling and other traffic offenses pose a threat to bikers, who might not be able to evade a collision with a careless driver.
- Distracted driving — A motorist paying attention to their phone or something else while looking at the road out of the corner of their eye likely isn’t looking out for a bicycle or pedestrian.
- Careless door opening — Someone who fully opens their car door without checking to see if a cyclist is approaching could create a surprise barrier that triggers a serious crash.
In cases stemming from these types of driver negligence and other bicycle accident cases, we thoroughly investigate the circumstances and make every legal effort to hold defendants accountable for their failure to take proper care on the road.
Firm seeks payment for injuries suffered by victims of Georgia bike crashes
Cars and trucks provide inherent protection for the people inside them, and new safety features continue to be introduced. On a bicycle, there is nothing to protect you against serious injuries if you’re struck by someone else. Though a helmet might reduce the damage if there is an impact to your head, there is very little you can do to prevent against common bike crash injuries, such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Abrasions (sometimes referred to as “road rash”)
- Facial injuries
- Dental fractures
- Muscle and ligament damage
My firm’s experience handling catastrophic injury cases throughout North Georgia can help you understand what type of relief is appropriate if you have suffered paralysis or another type of catastrophic harm in a biking accident. From there, I work aggressively to maximize the compensation you receive for current and future medical bills, lost income, rehabilitation costs, home modifications and the pain resulting from your accident.
Does insurance cover you when you are hit by a car while riding a bicycle?
You might be concerned that insurance will not cover your hospital costs and other damages arising from your bike crash. However, the at-fault driver’s policy should pay for medical expenses and repairs to, or replacement of, your bike. Even if the motorist is uninsured or lacks sufficient coverage, if you have auto insurance, the Uninsured Motorist coverage that you have on your own policy can help you meet your accident-related expenses. I will examine the relevant policies and press to obtain payment from all available sources.
