Bicyclists have little protection against injury when they are hit by motor vehicles. Some of our attorneys are avid cyclists themselves, so we understand the dangers that bike riders face when riding amongst motor vehicles.
Murphy & Pressentin vehemently represents cyclists who have been hit and injured by cars.
BICYCLE ACCIDENT CLAIMS
It is essential to fully examine all aspects of a bicycle accident to prove negligence. In most cases we retain accident specialists to assist us in establishing the cause of the accident. We also consider other conditions that may have played a role in causing the accident, such as: defective stop lights, obstructed view, or if construction was a contributing factor.
We will investigate whether or not there have been other bicycle accidents at that site, and whether the city or municipality was aware of the hazards. In some cases, cities or municipalities are fully aware of dangerous conditions but fail to take necessary precautions to make the location safe.
Taking legal action
Once we have established all those who we consider are legally responsible, we will initiate a lawsuit against them and pursue recovery from them for their part in the damages that resulted.
