Trusted Bicycle Accident Lawyer


Cycling around Harford County can be a great way to get exercise or even get to work or school. And for our children, it can be a fun way to hang out with their friends. But all too often, drivers don’t see a bicyclist until it’s too late, resulting in a vehicle vs bicycle accident.

This kind of accident can result in serious injuries or even death for the bike rider. If you or a loved one was injured in a bicycle accident, consult with a bicycle accident lawyer now by calling 410-838-5041. We’ll review the facts of your case and determine if we can help.

It’s important to know that if the cyclist was violating a traffic law at the time of the accident, or riding at night without lights and reflective gear, may prevent you from recovering compensation for your injuries. But if a motorist was at fault, that makes it much easier to recover damages.

Working with a bicycle accident lawyer who is skilled in personal injury law can help you increase your insurance settlement or jury verdict. And that’s crucial – you have medical bills to pay and lost wages to make up for. And if the accident resulted in a fatality, we will work with the surviving family to file a wrongful death suit if applicable.

Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

Here are some of the most common causes of vehicle vs bicycle accidents:

Driver passing too closely (3 ft. away is the law)

Distracted driving such as driving while texting

Roadway in poor condition

Rider error or failure to follow traffic laws

Dog running into the road

You can see that while some cyclists may be responsible for causing the accident, for the majority of accidents, there is another causative factor. If a driver is charged with causing a bicycle accident, it is much easier to recover damages.

Negotiating a settlement with an insurance company or going to court in a bicycle accident case can be challenging. At every step, you will deal with insurance company adjustors, complex laws, and confusing court rules. It is always better to have an experienced accident lawyer on your side to represent your interests and protect your rights.

Don’t Sign a Settlement without Talking to a Lawyer First

Unfortunately, many bicycle accident victims do not realize the value of their cases and are taken advantage of by claims adjusters and the insurance company. Insurance companies will seek to deny claims, avoid liability, and inaccurately assess the value of your case. Without the advocacy of an experienced and effective bicycle accident lawyer, you may risk losing the full value of your case.

We may be able to help you recover damages that can cover:

Pain and suffering
