Bicycle accidents are all too common. If you or a loved one has been injured on a bike due to someone else’s negligence, you need an experienced bicycle accident lawyer from SAM LAW OFFICE, LLC.

Drivers have a responsibility to look out for bicyclists. Accidents frequently occur when a driver fails to yield, swerves unexpectedly, makes an improper turn, or simply fails to look out for bicyclists. Driver negligence, including speeding, drunk driving and distracted driving, is the cause of many bicycle accidents.
Suppose a negligent driver has injured you or a loved one. In that case, you must have an experienced personal injury attorney who will work diligently on your behalf to prove your case and seek the full compensation you are entitled to receive. The attorneys for the insurance company will undoubtedly do their best to deny that the driver was at fault or to trivialize the nature of your injuries to minimize the amount of compensation you receive.
At our firm, your case will be personally managed by attorney Susan A. Marks. She will take the time to investigate the cause of your accident and build a strong case on your behalf. By preparing each case for trial, Ms. Marks puts her clients in a favorable position to obtain the compensation they deserve by trial or by a negotiated settlement agreement.
Even at slow speeds, a motor vehicle’s size and weight can cause significant damage to a bicyclist in a collision. Bicyclists can easily be thrown from their bikes, causing broken bones, neck damage, brain damage or even spinal cord damage on impact with the ground. In the most severe cases, bicyclists sustain fatal injuries.
Attorney Susan A. Marks has the experience necessary to handle cases involving serious and fatal injuries. She has advocated on behalf of clients who have sustained back and neck injuries, broken bones, disfigurement, spinal cord injury, brain injury and other serious injuries. She has also successfully obtained compensation on behalf of family members in wrongful death claims.
As a skilled trial lawyer and negotiator, Ms. Marks will vigorously pursue the full compensation you are entitled to receive after you have suffered a head injury or other serious injury or lost a family member in a bicycle accident.
After a fatal bicycle accident, the question arises about whether the victim’s family has cause to bring a claim for compensation on the grounds of wrongful death. SAM LAW OFFICE, LLC, has ample experience determining liability in fatal accident cases.
An investigation into the causes of a fatal bicycle accident often highlights the dangers that bicyclists face every day. A close analysis often shows that a motorist was not watching out properly. Drivers of motor vehicles often claim after a bicycle crash that they did not see the bicyclist. However, bicycle riders have the same rights as drivers of cars and trucks to travel on city streets and rural roadways.
Secondly, the disadvantage is that a bicyclist, unprotected by the body of a vehicle, has in an accident involving a car or truck. When crashes occur between motor vehicles and bicycles, the results are all too often catastrophic or fatal to bicyclists. Occupants of a motor vehicle are not injured at all. The vulnerable body of a bicyclist is no match for a heavy steel car or truck. Lack of protection for the bicycle rider’s body is a recipe for disaster, even when the car and bicycle are not moving at high speeds. If a loved one was killed in a bicycle accident (whether the death was instant or took place sometime later due to injuries), you are well-advised to discuss the case with an experienced wrongful death attorney.
