Our Stafford County Bicycle Accident Lawyer Helps You Recover the Damages You Deserve
The injuries a bicycle rider suffers in an accident often lead to oppressive medical bills and other monetary losses.
We understand the financial strain you are probably under right now. And that is on top of what is no doubt intense physical distress as you try to heal. We work to get you the full scope of damages you deserve, which may include:
These include your costs for surgeries, hospital stays, doctor visits, and therapy. You may also be able to recover compensation to pay for your medications, medical devices, and emergency transportation costs.
If you have had to miss work, you could receive compensation to make up for the paychecks you are not collecting.
Reduced Earning Capacity
This money makes up the difference in what you can earn going forward and what you would be earning if you had not suffered injuries. We can work with a vocational rehabilitation expert to determine what you might have continued to make over the course of your life.
“Pain and Suffering” and Inconvenience
You deserve money to compensate you for the “pain and suffering” and inconvenience you endured due to your injuries.
If your loved one lost their life in a bicycle accident, our Stafford County personal injury attorney will pursue wrongful death damages against the responsible party. This money pays you for the costs you incurred because of your loved one’s death. For instance, you may be entitled to compensation for funeral and burial costs, and the loss of the deceased’s future income.

Our Personal Injury Lawyers Go After All Responsible Parties
Do you know who was responsible for your bicycle accident injuries? It might not be who you think. Moreover, more than one party may be responsible. We pour extensive resources into our investigation, so we can be sure we identify every liable party. We may be able to hold any of the following parties liable:
Motor vehicle operators are the most common responsible parties in bicycle vs. car collisions. If a driver broke a traffic law, failed to yield to you, or did not use due care and caution, we can hold them responsible for your injuries.
We have seen car-bicycle accidents in which a passenger in the car was responsible. In many cases, these accidents happen when the passenger fails to look before opening their door and causes a “dooring.”
The Bicycle Manufacturer
If a defective bicycle component contributed to your injuries, we could hold the manufacturer liable. If we can prove the manufacturer acted negligently or breached its contract to you in some way, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries and other losses.
