Newport Bicycle Accident Lawyers

If you have been injured in a bicycle accident in Newport, contact the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd. for help. Because bicyclists are so unprotected when they are riding, the negligent actions of others can have very severe consequences for the rider. Drivers of large vehicles have a far greater responsibility to drive safely and carefully around bicyclists because of these risks. When those drivers, or other responsible parties, do not fulfill their duty to help keep you safe, they can be held accountable for your injuries and other expenses.

Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd. Our decades of experience allow us to craft the best legal arguments for your claim, ensuring the best final result of your case and the best chance at the full amount of compensation you need to get your life back on track.

Why You Should Contact a Lawyer after Your Bicycle Accident

After a bicycle accident, you are likely dealing with severe pain and injuries. Your concerns can be further compounded by the cost of the treatment you require and your difficulty in returning to work. In such a financially and physically precarious situation, you will likely not be able to handle the extensive requirements of pursuing a claim against those who put you in this position.

By hiring a lawyer, you can entrust the success of your claim to those who know best how to pursue it. Your lawyer will have the legal knowledge to file your claim and argue your case in the most strategic way. They will be able to gather all necessary evidence, track down witnesses, work with experts, and build a case that results in the highest amount of compensation for all the suffering you have experienced.

You do not have to fight this legal battle on your own. Give yourself the opportunity to heal and get your life on track by putting a lawyer in charge of the legal side of your recovery.

The Most Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents That Lead to Claims

Bicycle accidents can be caused in a variety of ways, including:

  • Hit and run accidents
  • Drivers refusing to yield
  • Drivers ignoring traffic laws, such as stop signs and stop lights
  • Drivers speeding
  • Road rage
  • Drivers opening doors in front of bicyclists (dooring)
  • Property defects
  • Debris on the street
  • Street defects from improper maintenance
  • Defective bicycle parts
  • Negligent bicycle repairs
  • Distracted driving
  • Intoxicated driving

In all of the above cases, and in many others, we will be able to track down those responsible for your pain and suffering, and we can make sure they are held accountable for all the financial and physical difficulties you are facing.

A bicycle accident can happen in an instant, but the results can mean a lifetime of pain and physical difficulties. Some of the most common injuries we see with our bicycle accident clients include:

  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic head injuries
  • Concussions
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Amputations
  • Severe facial injuries
  • Bruises and lacerations
  • Scars
  • Sprains and strains

Some cases even result in the death of the bicyclist. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, bicycle accident deaths were remarkably common. 2.2% of all traffic deaths in 2016 were due to bicycle accidents.

Pursuing a bicycle accident claim against the party responsible for your injuries can help you recover compensation for expenses such as:

  • Current medical expenses
  • Future medical expenses
  • Property damage, to your bike, phone, and more
  • Rehabilitative costs
  • Lost wages from missing work
  • Lost earning capacity, if you are unable to work at the same level ever again
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Pain and suffering

Furthermore, if you tragically lost a loved one in a bicycle accident, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim to recover compensation for their final expenses, as well as loss of support, companionship, and inheritance.

No matter the injuries you are suffering, whether relatively minor or traumatic, we can help you. Contact us to discuss the specifics of your case to find out more about how we can help.
