Not all personal injury attorneys are created equal, especially when it comes to navigating the field of insurance litigation. This can be particularly compounded in bike accident cases as the laws can be complex. Missing filing deadlines or possible causes of action can destroy a claim.
Unlike car accidents, bike accident cases offer unique facts. For example, riding on sidewalks is permitted by code in some municipalities, while local law prohibits this activity in others. However, just because a municipal code may prohibit riding on a sidewalk, doesn’t always mean the bike rider was at fault.
Other factors can be case specific in bike accident cases. For example, is there a bike lane, was the rider walking or riding in a crosswalk, was there an “implied” intersection, are there sight lines that are distorted by objects, was the bike rider wearing a helmet. All of these factors, and more, need to be considered in a bike accident case.
You will undoubtedly see many attorneys advertising themselves as Personal Injury specialists. The fact of the matter, is that many lack the experience, reputation and credentials to effectively handle these types of cases.
