Bicycle Accidents Can Have Devastating Consequences

Bicyclists often suffer severe injuries in accidents, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage and fractures. Medical treatment for these injuries can be incredibly expensive, and you shouldn’t have to manage these costs on your own.

Without the body of a vehicle, bicyclists can easily become injured due to the negligence of others on the road. Common causes of bicycle accidents include:

  • Distracted or inattentive driving
  • Drivers failing to yield the right of way
  • Unsafe road conditions
  • Poor visibility
  • Car doors

Bicycle accidents can be life-altering, and the legal process that follows can be complex. Working with an experienced attorney can help protect your rights and navigate the intricacies of filing a personal injury claim.

You Have A Right To Compensation In Iowa

In Iowa, you may file a personal injury claim for various forms of compensation following a bicycle accident. Economic damages can help cover tangible costs like medical expenses, rehabilitation fees, lost wages and the potential loss of future earning potential.

Noneconomic damages are awarded for the more subjective impacts of your accident, which can include pain and suffering, disfigurement and mental anguish. An experienced personal injury attorney from Galligan Law can guide you in pursuing the full compensation you deserve to aid in your journey to recovery.
