Accidents involving collisions with vehicles, attacks by dogs, and defective products all commonly occur. More often than not, a collision with a motor vehicle is caused by the negligence of the operator of the car or truck, who failed to keep a proper look-out, who misjudged the bike’s speed, who turned improperly, who failed to yield the right-of-way, or who failed to leave the proper amount of room for the cyclist. These accidents can be very serious, resulting in bone fractures, head injury, scarring and even wrongful death. Our personal injury lawyers are here to help.
When a motorist collides with a bike, who is responsible to pay for medical bills and lost wages? Motor vehicle liability insurance from the responsible operator is one possible source to help pay for personal injury claims, including medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering caused by the negligence of the responsible operator.
We understand that it is important to overcome juror bias towards bicyclists, as many jurors do not ride bicycles themselves—or haven’t for many years. The Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess is also a proud supporter of cycling and cycling safety programs in Louisiana.
