Why do people ride bicycles?

People of all ages ride bicycles for a variety of reasons that include:

  • commuting to work and school
  • running errands
  • getting places
  • pleasure
  • sightseeing
  • environmentally sound way to travel
  • exercise
  • competition

A bicycle is much less expensive to own and use than an automobile; it is even less expensive than most modes of public transportation. Typically, bicycles do not need to pay to be parked. Un-renewable fossil fuels are not used up when someone rides a bike. For most people, when feasible, riding a bicycle is a much healthier way to get from one place to another compared to being sedentary in a car, train, bus, etc.

Even though Washington, DC has bike lanes to accommodate cyclists, cyclists still face many hazards that result in the need for a law firm that is experienced with successfully defending the rights of bicycle riders.

Is there a branch of law for bicycle riders?

The kind of law an issue with a bicycle or bicycle rider falls under depends upon factors other than it simply involving a bicycle rider. There is no specific branch of law that covers all matters involving all bicycle riders but very often, the reasons why bicycle riders seek compensation is when they are injured because of someone else’s negligence. This is typically filed as a personal injury claim.

Many Washington, DC bicycle accident victims and their families find this is easy to do with the help of a personal injury law firm that is knowledgeable about how to successfully defend the rights of bicycle accident victims.

Why do people seek compensation for bicycle accidents?

While bicycles are a great way to get around for many different reasons, in the event of an accident, bicycle riders do not have anything to protect themselves except their helmets, clothing and any other protective wear they might have. When a bicycle rider is injured their injuries can be anywhere from mild to severe, or even deadly.

Reasons bicycle accident victims and their families may seek compensation from the negligent parties that caused their accident include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of childcare and/or household management
  • Loss of benefits
  • Pain and suffering
  • Funeral and burial or cremation costs
  • Loss of consortium (spousal support)
  • Loss of parental guidance
  • Pain and grieving

If you or someone you love is suffering from a bicycle accident or if someone you love has died because of this, it may be time to call a personal injury law firm that knows how to protect the rights of injured people and their families.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
