Were You Injured in a Bicycle Accident? Learn Your Rights.
On Connecticut’s densely populated roadways, cyclists face danger around every corner in the form of distracted or otherwise negligent drivers. To add insult to injury, cyclists face many of the same biases as motorcycle riders, who are often treated poorly by insurance companies and viewed skeptically by people.
At Tremont Sheldon P.C. in Bridgeport, we understand the challenges that cyclists face; in fact, one of our lawyers is an avid cyclist whom you may have seen at your most recent cycling event. If you or a loved one has been injured in a bicycle accident, we welcome the opportunity to learn more about your situation and to achieve an outcome that meets your needs.
You Have the Same Rights as Other Motorists
Regardless of the misinformation you have been told, you have the same rights as people who drive cars, trucks, motorcycles and other vehicles. “I didn’t see him” and “she came out of nowhere” are not acceptable answers as to why you have suffered a severe injury and face mounting medical bills that you are not sure how you will pay.
We have recovered money for bicyclists who have been hit by cars and have earned a reputation for holding reckless drivers accountable for their carelessness. We will not be satisfied until you have the compensation you deserve for medical bills, pain and suffering, rehabilitation, lost wages and other damages. We will leverage all available sources of recovery.
