Bike Riders Struck by Negligent Drivers
Cyclists are a tight-knit group, united by their love of biking and a warranted fear of automobile drivers. Anyone who rides a bike on a regular basis has had a close brush with a car if not an actual collision. Every cyclist knows someone who was badly hurt or killed by an aggressive, distracted or inattentive driver.
The Cleveland law firm of Bashein & Bashein represents bicycle accident victims across northeast Ohio. We are sensitive to the massive injuries typical of car-bike accidents, and we are skilled at reconstructing the events to prove negligence.
As avid bike riders ourselves, we understand the risks that cyclists face. Our trial lawyers have the experience and resources to hold drivers accountable when the dreaded crash happens to you or a family member. Contact us today for a free consultation.
Cleveland and Akron Bike Injury Attorneys
Bicycles have the same right to the road as cars, but time and again motorists fail to move over or notice riders until too late. We have handled every bicycle accident scenario, such as drivers who:
- Pulled out from a driveway or parking lot
- Failed to yield at a stop sign or traffic light
- Sideswiped riders on the shoulder or turn lane
- Cut off a cyclist when turning right
- Opened their car door without checking
- Were distracted by a cell phone
We have won compensation for bicycle fatalities and serious or permanent injuries such as spinal cord injury, brain trauma, broken bones or fractures, internal injuries, facial injuries and severe road rash. We work with top professional in many fields to ensure our clients are covered for the medical bills, lost earnings and disabling effects of the accident.
Are you wearing your bike helmet? Use of a bicycle helmet is critically important to preventing traumatic brain injury and death. It's the one thing you can do to protect yourself and your children against negligent drivers. Failure to wear a helmet can also be used by the defense to limit compensation under the theory of comparative negligence.
