A crash that may be minor in a car could be catastrophic on a bike. Have you suffered serious injuries in a bike wreck? If so, call a University Place bicycle accident lawyer for legal assistance.
In case you’re worried about how much it will cost to speak with a lawyer, don’t be. The team at Ladenburg Law always offers free case evaluations and only charges a fee if we’re able to win your case.
We don’t have to tell you that a crash can impact your life more than a wrecked bike. Have you experienced any of the following?
If you’ve been a victim, you could be eligible to receive compensation for these kinds of damages. One of our skilled bicycle accident attorneys can investigate what happened, look at verdicts in similar cases, and help determine a fair value.
Not every crash has a completely at-fault and innocent party. A variety of factors can contribute to a crash outcome. For instance, were both parties following the speed limit? Was the bicyclist wearing a helmet? Did both parties make errors in judgment?
The good news is that even if you were somewhat to blame for your injuries, you may still be able to file a claim thanks to Washington’s comparative fault law (RCW 4.22.005). In other words, if you were found to be 30% at fault for the crash, your settlement award would be reduced by 30%.
Our attorneys are skilled to provide help in these situations. We may be able to work to lower your contributory fault. So please, don’t hesitate to reach out even if you’re somewhat to blame.
We understand that you are likely reading this page after the fact. But chances are there are still some steps you could consider taking following your bike crash.
The important thing to remember is that you have a limited window of time to file a claim in the state of Washington. Plus, insurance companies may have additional deadlines. Reach out to our team to make sure you don’t miss on compensation you could be entitled to receive.
