        What to Do Right After Your Bicycle Accident

        As soon as possible after your accident, we want you to seek urgent medical care. Whether that is at the emergency room or an urgent care facility, you need to make it a priority to take care of your well-being. We understand that you might have other things that you need to take care of but we want you to take your injuries seriously. While we might understand why you would put your medical care lower on the priority list than taking care of your family, the insurance company won’t be so understanding. Because of the Virginia compensation laws that throw away your case if you are even 1% at fault for your accident the insurance company will take any reason to rid themselves of responsibilities in your case. Our Virginia bicycle accident lawyers also need you to seek immediate medical care so that we can get a better understanding of what your maximum medical recovery will be, as that will help us determine the value of your bicycle accident case.

        The Parties Involved in a Bicycle Accident Case

        In any given bicycle accident case, there are going to be four parties involved in the whole process from start to finish. Here are the four parties that you should know before getting started:

        The first person involved in a bicycle accident case is you. You are going to be called the ‘plaintiff.’ The plaintiff is the person who was harmed by the negligent party and is pursuing a case in hopes of receiving a compensation award for the damages and injuries.

        The next person involved in the bicycle accident case is going to be the person who is directly responsible for causing you harm. They are called the liable party. The liable party in a bicycle accident case is usually an automobile driver.

        The third party involved in a bicycle accident case is going to be your Virginia bicycle accident lawyers who will represent you from start to finish in your case in your pursuit of justice for your damages and injuries in the form of a compensation award. Finally, the fourth party involved is the liable party’s insurance company.

        There are several reasons why a bicycle accident can happen. Here are the most common reasons:

        • You were hit by someone who was distracted while driving (i.e., texting or calling while they were driving);
        • You were hit by a driver who didn’t slow their vehicle in time to avoid a collision with you; or,
        • You were hit by someone who did not abide by traffic signals or did not yield for you.

        When you bring a claim against the liable party, they are not the ones who are going to be directly responsible for your financial compensation. That burden lies on the shoulders of their insurance company. They are going to be the ones to fulfill your compensation award. Our Virginia bicycle accident lawyers make it our mission to fight against them to ensure that the compensation award that they come up with is full and fair and accurately reflects everything that you have had to go through after being injured by their liable party.

        How Much a Bicycle Accident Claim is Valued 

        When we are determining the value of your bicycle accident case, we are looking at a variety of different factors. Our main objective is to determine how your life has been affected after your injuries. For example if you were someone who relied on your bicycle to get to your job and you now have no bicycle because it was ruined in the accident and you are also too injured to ride to work or even perform your job, those facts are going to result in some serious damage to you financially, physically and mentally. Bicycles are not cheap and if that was your main form of transportation, having your bicycle be ruined is going to be a huge change for you. If you miss work and you don’t bring in money anymore, you might be struggling to pay the medical bills that you need in order to get better. It is our job to make sure that your compensation award fully reflects how your life has negatively changed since your accident.

        There are two main categories of damages that we consider. These categories are your economic damages and your non-economic damages.

        Your economic damages are going to be all of the ways that you financially were hurt after your accident. We take into consideration the value of the bicycle that was destroyed. We also take into consideration all the bills that you’ve had to pay for your medical treatments such as an ambulance ride or an ER visit and any follow up doctor treatment. Your lost wages will also be considered in your economic damages, as well.

        Your non-economic damages have more to do with the physical, mental, and emotional impact on you from the accident. If you suffer anxiety or depression after your bicycle accident related specifically to your bicycle accident, that can be included in your compensation award. All of your pain and suffering should be included in your compensation award as a non-economic damage. It is the job of our Virginia bicycle accident lawyers to make sure that our clients compensation awards accurately reflect how their life has been affected.

        Our Advice for Success

        Feeling helpless and lost is a very common experience after you have been hurt in an avoidable accident. While these feelings are valid, you should know that you have some power in the success of your bicycle accident case. Our Virginia bicycle accident lawyers can offer a free consultation for you during which you can get valuable legal advice. That is always a good place to start if you are feeling lost. 

        We hope that you reach out to us as soon as possible. The very first thing that you need to do after you’ve been hurt, however, is to get yourself to an urgent care center or an emergency room right away. Your medical care is more important than anything else right now.

        Simply acting quickly enough after your bicycle accident is going to help you have a successful case. In Virginia, you have two years from the date of your accident to bring your case. This is a legal deadline with no wiggle room. You either make it within your statute of limitations or you are barred from receiving any justice whatsoever. You only get one chance to bring your case and if you bring it late then you are no longer eligible to receive compensation. This is a simple mistake to make but an easily avoided one, and we would think it tragic for you to miss out on receiving compensation simply because you didn’t prioritize reaching out to our lawyers in a prompt manner.

        Another huge mistake that people make and we hope you avoid making is giving the insurance company a recorded statement. The insurance company knows just as well as our Virginia bicycle accident lawyers that the laws in this state are strict when it comes to shared fault. Some states will allow you to receive compensation even if you are partially at fault for the accident; in Virginia, however, if you were even 1% at fault for causing the accident then you no longer get to receive compensation for your damages and injuries. Do not give the insurance company a recorded statement unless you want to give them a reason to blame you for causing the accident. Don’t ruin your case by believing the insurance company is looking out for your best interests. After all, the insurance company is a company that wants to make profit just like any other business. They don’t want to give you justice because it could be expensive for them.
