On average, over 700 people in the United States are killed in bicycle
accidents annually, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Thousands more men, women, and children are injured, many of them seriously
so. The bicycle accident rate in Texas, including in San Antonio, tracks
that found elsewhere in the United States. If you have been injured in
a bicycle accident, you must take a proactive stance to protect your rights
and interests, including retaining the services of an experienced San
Antonio bicycle accident lawyer.
In addition to proactively retaining legal counsel, you also need to familiarize
yourself with the essential elements of a bicycle accident claim. This
essential familiarization best ensures a positive outcome in your case.
Compensation in a San Antonio Bicycle Accident Case
A skilled San Antonio bicycle accident lawyer from The Doan Law Firm at
(800) 349-0000 will fight to ensure that you obtain the compensation to
which you are entitled in your case. The nature and extent of compensation
in a bicycle accident case depends largely on the specific facts and circumstances
surrounding the accident itself, coupled with the associated injuries.
With that said, there are some types of losses that commonly result in
compensation in a bicycle accident case. These include:
- medical bills and expenses
- mental anguish
- pain and suffering
- permanent disability
- lost income
A tenacious San Antonio bicycle accident attorney will work diligently
to ensure that you obtain all compensation to which you are entitled.
This will also include compensation for future losses.
A stark reality associated with a bicycle accident case is that you very
well may need medical care and treatment into the future. You may experience
pain and suffering indefinitely. You may not be able to return to your
fulltime job any time soon.
You are entitled to compensation for these, and other types, of future
losses. Your attorney must be able to demonstrate that these losses are
reasonably expected to occur.
Beyond existing and future losses, you may also be entitled to what are
known as punitive damages. Punitive damages represent another type of
compensation awarded in some bicycle accident lawsuits. Punitive damages
are considered in cases in which the party that caused a bicycle accident
was particularly reckless. These damages are not only intended to provide
additional compensation, but to serve as a means of punishing a party
because of particularly egregious conduct that resulted in an accident.
Types of Bicycle Accidents
29 percent of all bicycle accidents involve a bike rider being hit by a
motor vehicle, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Another 13 percent are caused because a roadway or bike path is not in
a safe, suitable condition. In either of these situations, a third party
typically is deemed to be at fault. In fact, rider error accounts for
about 13 percent of all bicycle accidents.
Types of Bicycle Accident Injuries
The types of accidents sustained by individuals in bicycle accidents caused
by someone else's negligence run the gambit. Common types of injuries
associated with bicycle accidents include:
- broken bones
- wounds and lacerations
- soft tissue damage
- internal organ damage
- spinal cord damage
- traumatic brain injury
- emotional distress
