Morgantown Bicycle Accidents Attorney

Hit while Cycling? Call (800) 785-9924 for a Lawyer!

Bicyclists in the Morgantown area face danger each time they are riding on city streets. Although a bicyclist has the right to ride on the streets and is required to follow the same laws as vehicles operators, cyclists are so small that they are easily unseen by negligent drivers. Whether your case took place at an intersection, at the side of the road, or at another area of the street or sidewalk, the injuries in an impact can be extensive, life threatening or fatal, even when the bicyclist is wearing a helmet.

Injury Claims in Bicycle Accidents

In many cases, a helmet cannot protect a bicyclist from injury because, after the initial impact, there is often a secondary impact when the cyclist hits the pavement, or even instances where the cyclist is run over by the vehicle that hit them. Serious internal injuries, head injuries, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), broken limbs, and other severe or permanent damage can be the tragic outcome.

In any such case, it is critical that you act to get legal representation from a personal injury attorney. The costs of care and treatment are usually astronomical and it could take months—or even years—for the victim to heal and reach a condition in which they can function in life. In many cases, this is not possible because the injuries are permanent, such as paralysis, permanent brain damage, or amputations, not to mention loss of life.
