Thurston County Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Have you or a loved one been injured in a bicycle accident? If so, we advise you reach out to a Thurston County bicycle accident lawyer as soon as possible. A skilled attorney can help determine the value of your case and file a claim on your behalf.

Our lawyers work on a contingency basis, which means you only pay us if we’re able to win you a settlement. You risk nothing by reaching out and seeing if we can help you.

Bicyclists are Vulnerable Road Users

As a bicyclist, you already know there’s not much protecting you from the road in a collision. When there’s a collision between a bicycle and a passenger vehicle, the bicyclist is far more likely to end up seriously injured.

Even seemingly minor injuries can rack up hefty medical bills. If you need an extended hospital stay, surgery, or ongoing physical therapy, the costs only escalate. We encourage you to reach out to one of our knowledgeable personal injury attorneys for assistance.

We can advocate for a fair settlement on your behalf to cover your medical bills. Even better, we only charge a fee if we win your case.

Bicycle Crash Safety Facts

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gathers data about collisions in an effort to reduce them.

Consider these statistics they’ve gathered about bicycle crashes for a recent year:

  • Bicycle crash fatalities most often occur between 6pm and 9pm, regardless of the time of year
  • 75% of bicycle crash fatalities happen in urban areas
  • Males are 8 times more likely than females to be killed in a bicycle crash
  • Alcohol played a role in 37% of bicycle crash fatalities

Being mindful of these risk factors and following the rules of the road can help you ride safe. For more information, see WSDOT for our state’s bicycle laws.

Getting Help with your Claim

Often, we’re asked what the value is of having a personal injury attorney assist with a claim. Here are the advantages we can provide:

  • We have a deep understanding of the process and common pitfalls: Our team has navigated the claims process many hundreds of times. We know how to position clients to receive the best possible settlement while avoiding pitfalls.
  • We’ll handle that process for you: When you choose to have us represent you, the incessant phone calls from the insurance company cease. You can count on us to build your case, work with all involved parties, and fight for your best interest.
  • We prepare every case for trial: Many times, we find the insurance companies don’t offer fair settlements. Should this happen in your case, we’ll be prepared to fight in court on your behalf.

Finally, just having an attorney on your side increases the value of your claim because it sends a message to the insurance company that you mean business.
