New Orleans and other cities in Louisiana have made strides to become more bicycle friendly in the last few decades, but there are still many dangers for bicyclists on the road. Even the most experienced and law-abiding rider can find themselves injured in an accident due to a defective product or part, unsafe road conditions or improperly maintained street, or another vehicle’s negligence.  If you’re injured in an accident caused by a car or other driver, contact Cueria Law Firm today for a free consultation at (504) 525-5211.

What To Do After You’ve Been In A Bicycle Accident

  1. Contact the Police When You’ve Been In A Bicycle Accident

Just like any other auto accident, a bicycle accident involving another party needs to be reported to the police. By having the police respond to your accident you will be given the other parties insurance information and have a police report outlining the details of the bicycle accident you were in. This police report can be extremely important in proving liability in a bicycle crash.

  1. Seek Medical Attention for Any Bicycle Accident Related Injuries

While you may be tempted to brush yourself off and get back on your bike following an accident, it’s important to get evaluated by a medical professional. Sometimes injuries won’t be noticeable immediately following a bike crash. Getting up and going about your day may exaggerate a bicycle accident injury further.

  1. Consult With a Bicycle Accident Attorney Before Speaking To Insurance Companies

While an insurance company may contact you following an accident, they will be offering you less than what you need to treat your injuries, fix your bike and get back on the road. By meeting with our bicycle accident attorney, you can rest assured you will have the money you need for your future.

Many drivers on the road hold the belief that bicycle riders are careless, which makes it easier for insurance companies to short-change injured cyclists or even deny their bicycle injury claim all together. Because a bicycle rider is exposed during their ride, the injuries sustained in an accident with a car or other vehicle can be serious and lead to costly medical treatments or accessibility needs.

Cueria Law Firm, LLC, Bicycle Attorney in New Orleans and Throughout Louisiana

Our New Orleans bicycle accident attorney has over two decades of experience in representing those who have been injured as the result of another driver’s negligence while the injured party was on his or her bicycle. We understand that the injuries and necessary care to treat them are extensive and daunting to a family who works hard to make ends meet. We want to help our clients solidify a financial settlement that will allow them to heal fully without the worry of mounting medical bills and lost wages.

When A Loved One Dies In a Bicycle Accident

Our team at Cueria Law Firm, LLC, has seen the devastation of a bicycle accident firsthand. Even with protective gear and a bicycle helmet, cyclists are no match for the physical size and speed of a passenger vehicle. The danger of a bicycle accident is there each time you or a loved one hit the road. Unfortunately, this means that some bicycle accidents can be fatal.

If you have lost a loved one in a bicycle accident which was due to the fault of a negligent driver, you may be entitled to a wrongful death claim. Cueria Law Firm, LLC, represents the families of those individuals who have been seriously injured or killed in bicycle accidents. While nothing can replace a member of your family, receiving a settlement for your loss and suffering can lessen the stress you feel.

Survivors of those killed in a bicycle accident who may have the right to file a wrongful death claim against a negligent party include:

  • The cyclist’s children
  • The cyclist’s spouse
  • The cyclist’s parents
  • The cyclist’s sibling
  • Any dependants of the cyclists at the time of their death

The foremost right to file a wrongful death claim is reserved for the children and spouse of the cyclist. If they file a wrongful death claim, it is unlikely that another party would be able to do so as well. If you have a question about the legalities surrounding a wrongful death claim following the loss of a loved one in a bicycle accident you should contact our law firm for a free consultation.

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a bike accident, do not be intimidated by insurance company attorneys or private lawyers who are offering a quick, low ball cash settlement. Your injuries deserve proper care and assessment, and we can help you counter their responses with a professionally prepared case against the negligent driver. Contact our New Orleans bicycle attorney today at 504-525-5211 to discuss your injuries, and how we can help you heal completely with the maximum  settlement you deserve.
