How to Know if You Have a Bicycle Accident Case

If you were less than 50% at fault for the bicycle accident, you may have a case. Note that this means you could be partially at fault and still entitled to compensation. Under Maine’s modified comparative negligence law, crash victims must be less at fault for the crash than the other party.

But how do you know who was actually at fault?

The answer lies in whose negligence directly caused the crash. Common causes of bicycle accidents that provide grounds for a claim include:

  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Poorly maintained, neglected roads
  • Refusing or failing to yield to a bicyclist
  • Tailgating or not leaving enough room for bicyclists
  • Unsafe turns, lane changes, and passes

In short, ask yourself whether you were following the law at the time. Now what about the other party? Is there a chance that they were engaged in any of the above types of negligence? Don’t write it off if you aren’t sure. Book a free consultation with a Maine bicycle accident lawyer as soon as you can. It is very common for accident victims to find out that they are owed compensation; often, they realize this too late.

Compensation You Could Recover

Bicycle accident cases typically result in large settlements and verdicts in favor of the victims. Bicyclists are rarely at fault; they tend to have the right of way since they have less protection and are more vulnerable than vehicle occupants. Unfortunately, this also means that they are more likely to suffer catastrophic and fatal injuries.

If you were a bicyclist injured by negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for the following damages:

  • Medical bills
  • Therapies
  • Disability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity

This is just a sample of what you may recover. Many of our clients also find closure knowing that the correct party was held accountable. Others find the peace of mind that comes with having the financial means to afford necessary medical treatment. Whatever the best possible outcome looks like for your case, we aim to get it.
