Salt Lake City Bicycle Accident Attorney

Have you been involved in a bicycle accident?

Sharing the road with vehicles can be a dangerous activity for Utah cyclists. Cyclists are at a greater risk of serious injury or even death because they are not protected by the car’s frame, airbags, or seat belts. Even though we are all responsible for safely sharing the roads, drivers can sometimes have a hard time seeing bikes. In other cases, a collision can occur because the driver was distracted, possibly texting or eating while operating a vehicle.

Being involved in a bicycle accident can be devastating, lead to large injuries and even wrongful death if the mishap is serious enough. Even if it was not your fault, the responsible party’s insurance company might not have your best interests at heart. In some cases, they are likely to refuse to acknowledge that fact, leading to an unfair settlement offer or complete denial of claims. The bike accident attorneys at The Law Offices of Roberto Hernandez can assist you during this tough and confusing process. Our service’s primary emphasis is to help you determine total liability and build the strongest case possible.

  • Speeding, careless or aggressive driving

What exactly can an injury law firm do you for?

It should come as no surprise that insurance policy adjusters will make you an offer at the lowest amount feasible. This may not even fully cover your out of pocket medical expenses, let alone pain and suffering, time lost from work, and damage to your personal property. The insurance providers are likely trained in utilizing negotiation methods to maintain expenses at a bare minimum. Simply put, their objective is not to help you get back on your feet.

Having a bike crash lawyer who is experienced in navigating clients through insurance law, recognizes the impacts of bicycle accident injuries; and the ins and outs of the Utah legal system will only reinforce your insurance claim than if you were to tackle your accident situation alone. Our bike accident lawyers are here to develop a strong bike crash case to secure you against those pushy insurance coverage adjusters.
