When to Hire an Attorney after a Bicycle Accident

The best time to reach out to an attorney is as soon as possible following your collision. There are a couple reasons for this:

  1. Access to evidence. When you involve an attorney early on, you have access to evidence while it is still fresh. The incident is clearest in witnesses’ minds, skid marks may still be present on the roadway, and video evidence might be available. All of this can help strengthen your claim.
  2. More assistance in the process. The sooner you call us, the sooner we can get to work on your behalf and provide guidance throughout the process.

Again, there is no upfront cost to you for using our services, so we urge you to call as soon as you can.

Challenging Bike Collision Scenarios

Another good reason to involve an attorney is because we can assist in challenging crash scenarios, where the insurance claim process may be frustrating or confusing.

For example, if the driver that hit you fled the scene, we may be able to assist by filing a claim against your own insurance company. We can also assist if you were partially to blame for your accident. The state of Washington is a comparative fault state, which means you can still recover a partial settlement for your injuries (RCW 4.22.005). As personal injury attorneys, we can investigate what happened and work to reduce the percentage you’re found at fault.

How Damages are Determined

There are two different damages personal injury victims can be compensated for. Special damages have concrete numbers and include items like medical bills and lost wages. General damages are subjective and include pain, emotional suffering, and other harms to your lifestyle. For calculating general damages, we’ll often look at jury verdicts of similar cases.

After one of our attorneys has assessed all the facts of your case, we can provide a general range of what the value of your case may be. Please understand that the potential value may change as the case progresses. No matter what, it is always your decision to decide to settle a case or not for the amount being offered. As your attorney, we’ll arm you with information every step and work to negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf.

If we reach an impasse in negotiations, we can file a personal injury lawsuit and have your case heard before a jury or judge. We can discuss these options with you in greater detail during our initial meeting.
