Who Can File a Bike Accident Claim?

Like other types of personal injury claims, bicycle accident cases can be brought when several key elements are met.

In order to have grounds for a bike accident claim, you will need to prove the following:

  • Another person or party owed you a duty of care, meaning they had a responsibility to take reasonable steps to prevent you from being injured/harmed
  • The other person/party breached the duty of care, typically by acting negligently, wrongfully, and/or unlawfully
  • You were injured, harmed, and/or suffered measurable damages, such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering
  • The other person/party’s breach of the duty of care was the proximate cause of your injuries, harm, and/or damages

For example, if you were riding your bike in a designated bike lane and an intoxicated motorist swerved into you, causing you to break your arm and sustain a serious concussion, you would likely have grounds to file a claim. This is because all motorists have a duty to avoid injuring others, including cyclists who are lawfully sharing the road. In this example, the motorist’s intoxication is a clear indicator of negligence (and is unlawful), meaning they breached the duty of care. Because the intoxicated motorist caused the injuries, they can be held legally liable for the resulting damages.

Damages in Your Bicycle Accident Claim

Although many people understandably want to know how much their potential claim is worth, it is impossible to determine the value of your case without knowing the unique factors involved. That being said, many bicycle accident victims are able to recover compensation for specific damages.

These damages include:

  • Emergency medical care
  • Ongoing medical treatment
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost income/wages
  • Lost future income/wages
  • Lost or reduced earning ability
  • Inconvenience
  • Disfigurement
  • Pain and suffering (including emotional distress and trauma)
  • Lost or reduced quality of life

Our Palatka bicycle accident lawyers understand that these incidents often result in catastrophic injuries. As a result, victims need an attorney on their side who understands the importance of seeking compensation not only for immediate losses but for ongoing and future damages, as well.
