When bicycle accidents occur, they can be very serious and traumatic events. Due to their lack of protection, the bicyclist takes the brunt of the forces during the accident. Bicycle accidents can result in very serious injuries, producing the need for compensation from the insurance company for medical bills, physical therapy, lost wages, and other expenses and damages.
Protecting Spokane Bicycle Accident VictimsBefore agreeing to the settlement offered by the insurance company, it is important that you meet with an attorney to ensure that the claim compensation is full and fair. At Russell and Hill, PLLC, we make it our goal to ensure that bicycle accident victims receive the appropriate amount of compensation for their injuries and damages.
Bicyclists lack the protection given to drivers of motor vehicles. Normally weighing two tons or more, today’s cars are equipped with seat belts, air-bags, and antilock brakes. Bicyclists, on the other hand, have only their helmets to protect them against the unforgiving momentum of a moving vehicle.
Hundreds of bicycle accidents occur in Spokane and the surrounding cities every year. To ensure that victims receive the full and fair compensation that they deserve, our bicycle accident attorneys at Russell and HIll, PLLC are ready to perform investigations and assist victims in obtaining appropriate health care and compensation for their medical needs.
