Imagine this: You’re racing down the edge of the road on your 18-speed mountain bike when a blue Pickup truck plows into your front tire, throwing you and your bicycle into a tumbling heap. The driver slams on her brakes and comes to your aid as quickly as she can. She murmurs apologies to you while she dials 911. They rush you off to the hospital. You are trying to get better, but the postman drops off thousands of dollars in bills. Now what do you do?
Thousands of people experience this scene every year. Cyclists are severely injured and even killed when struck by vehicles, because they have very little protection. Pennsylvania law allows cyclists to recover when they have been injured. The process to recover compensation is difficult as it requires the coordination of different insurance policies and will likely involve court and legal proceedings. The good news is that our law firm can help you so you can focus on getting better.
If a driver fails to yield and consequently hits you, the cyclist, you are entitled to compensation from the reckless motorist. If you have suffered a bicycle accident, call Ross & Ross at (814) 274 – 8612. Our experienced personal injury attorneys will fight for the compensation you deserve.
