Manchester Bicycle Accidents
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that 2010 saw approximately 52,000 bicyclists injured and 620 killed in automobile accidents. Sadly, many injuries that are common in bicycle accidents can result in a lifetime of struggle and may be impossible to fully recover from. These include injuries such as:
- Head and brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Pulverized bones
When you are injured or a loved one is killed in a bicycle accident, you may have a right to seek damages well beyond the offerings of insurance companies. The Manchester injury attorneys at Van Dorn & Curtiss know exactly what needs to be done in these cases to hold negligent drivers responsible and seek maximum damages for injured cyclists.
What You May be Entitled to
Damages in a bicycle accident may include:
- All related medical and rehabilitation expenses
- Current and future lost wages
- Home and lifestyle modifications
- Physical pain
- Emotional suffering
Tragically, 18 percent of bicycle accident injuries and fatalities occur in children under the age of 14. If you have lost a child, parent, or spouse in a bicycle accident, our Manchester injury attorneys can discuss filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Damages you may be entitled to under these lawsuits will be discussed with you during your initial consultation.
