According to the Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute, there are over 40 million regular bicycle riders in the United States. In 2006, over 45,000 of those bicyclists were injured by motor vehicles. If you are a bicyclist who has been injured in an accident, you probably already know that many drivers and their insurance companies tend to blame the victim after an accident. Even in cases where liability seems clear - such as a car turning directly in front of a bicycle - the at-fault driver's insurance company will find a way to blame the bicyclist.
At the Reinecke Law Firm, we can help. An avid bicyclist, Mr. Reinecke has obtained millions of dollars in compensation for his seriously injured clients, including $2.1 million for a bicyclist who sustained a fractured left leg and ankle in an accident.
Many people who drive four-wheeled vehicles have little regard for cyclists. It's not unusual for careless drivers to turn in front of bicycles, drive too close to bicyclists, and even hit them in bike paths. However, when such accidents occur, drivers often claim that the bicyclist was traveling too fast or came out of nowhere. Attorney Tom Reinecke will fight to hold the careless driver accountable for your injury.
