Raleigh Bicycle Accident Attorneys

Serving Those Affected by Bicycle Injuries

Bicycle accidents frequently occur, just as they do with any other mode of transportation. Unfortunately, sometimes accidents are so bad, they result in serious injury or even death to the cyclist. When injury or death occurs due to the negligence of others, our team of trusted attorneys are there to represent victims and their families with care and experience. Edwards Kirby has proudly served those affected by personal injuries all across North Carolina since 1993. If you or a loved one has been harmed in a preventable bicycle accident, we’re here to help you get the justice and compensation you deserve.

Compensation Due to Bicycle Accidents

Getting the Settlement You Deserve

Cyclists have the same rights to safety as drivers of motor vehicles, and when injury occurs, they deserve to be protected to the same degree. A bicycle accident can be a serious situation. Bicycles leave riders vulnerable to larger vehicles, resulting in life-changing injuries, such as:

  • Organ damage
  • Spinal cord injuries or paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Loss of limbs
  • Death

These injuries require substantial financial means for recovery, and often lead to long-term medical needs that can be quite a financial burden. A personal injury lawsuit gives injured riders or the families of lost loved ones the opportunity to seek compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of past or future income
  • Disability or disfigurement
  • Medical bills
  • Surgery and rehabilitation
  • Future medical needs, including medications and devices

Families of those lost may pursue a wrongful death lawsuit that will also seek compensation for burial and funeral expenses.

Common Questions

Who is responsible for a bicycle accident?

Accidents can happen in a variety of ways, and determining the cause of a particular case requires evaluating all the facts of that situation. Our team offers free case evaluations to discuss your particular bicycle accident or that of your loved one to assess the validity of the claim before a lawsuit is pursued. We at Edwards Kirby will thoroughly review your case to gather evidence needed to prove fault and establish liability.

  • Common causes of bicycle accidents include:
  • Failure to yield and running of red lights
  • Improper lane changes
  • Roadway defects
  • Distracted driving
  • Driver impairment
  • Improperly marked roads and bike lanes
  • Defective bicycles
  • Negligent commercial truck drivers

Should I get a lawyer after a bike accident?

After an accident, you and your family have enough to navigate and worry about. Enlisting the help of qualified attorneys takes the more complicated aspects off your hands. Our team will investigate the details of your accident, communicate with insurance carriers and defendants, advocate for your best interest, and ensure you get the compensation you’re owed.

We’ve seen too often how when those affected by serious injury represent themselves, they lack the resources and experience to navigate the defense tactics employed by corporations and insurance carriers. Often, these corporations and carriers will take advantage of victims’ lack of legal knowledge, twist their words, and make unreasonably low settlement offers. Representation by the trusted attorneys at Edwards Kirby makes the fight fair and greatly increases your chances of winning the verdict and settlement you deserve. We fight for your rights with conviction and let opposing counsel and insurance carriers know they can’t take advantage of you, often leading to timelier and more substantial outcomes.
