How will an attorney help a Mount Vernon bicycle accident case?

Bicycle accident victims often lack the resources necessary to conduct a complete investigation into the party responsible for the crash. However, a Mount Vernon bicycle accident lawyer understands these cases and can:

  • Obtain all evidence needed to prove liability, which can include available video or photo surveillance, statements from eyewitnesses, police reports, and more.
  • Ensure their client is evaluated by a medical professional who will ensure their well-being while also considering future treatment needs and expenses.
  • Handle all communication and negotiations with the at-fault party and their insurance carrier to obtain a fair settlement for their client.
  • Prepare the case for trial if necessary to obtain maximum compensation.

Bicycle accidents can lead to severe injuries

  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal organ damage or internal bleeding
  • Severe lacerations or road rash

According to data available from the New York Department of Motor Vehicles, there were 5,877 total bicycle crashes reported during the latest year across the state.
