Competent Personal Injury Lawyer in MS
If you have been injured in a bicycle accident, you are likely worried about who is going to pay your medical bills, lost wages, and compensate you for injuries and pain and suffering. If you don’t take the right steps at the right time to protect your rights, you may not be able to make a claim. This is why it is so important to reach out to a Greenville personal injury attorney, such as one from Harris Law Firm, PLLC.
Our team has more than 30 years of experience and we have the compassion and skill you need on your side during this trying time. Bicycle accidents can cause very serious injuries which are often life-threatening and life-altering. We are here to ensure that you get the compensation you are entitled to and that the responsible party pays for their actions.
Protecting You Against Insurance Companies
The last thing you want is to be taken advantage of by an insurance company or have the responsible party try to get out of paying you. Insurance companies have many attorneys and adjusters whose goal is to pay you as little as they can. You need an experienced bicycle accident attorney to fight for you. The attorneys at our firm are road and mountain bike cyclists and have ridden for years, so we know what it is like to have to deal with negligent drivers.
Common Causes of Bike Accidents
Bicyclists are often not given the respect on the road that is deserved, and this can prove dangerous if not deadly. We try very hard to help injured cyclists because motorists who have caused an accident may try and blame the cyclists just because they were on a bike. Drivers are often careless when around a bicyclist, as there is a general bias against bicyclists as the drivers of vehicles often fail to realize that bicyclists are entitled to use the road the same as an automobile.
We represent clients who have been injured in bicycle accidents as a result of a driver who:
- Failed to pay proper attention
- Failed to signal properly
- Was distracted by an electronic device
- Was drunk or on drugs
If your family has been touched by a serious bicycle accident anywhere in Mississippi, you should contact a bicycle accident attorney immediately. An experienced Greenville personal injury lawyer at our firm can help protect your rights, negotiate with insurance companies, or fight to win financial relief to pay for the medical care and long-term expenses.
