Can You Get Compensation for an Accident Caused by Your Malfunctioning BicycleIf you have been injured in a bicycle accident that was caused by a malfunctioning bicycle you were riding, you may be able to seek compensation for expenses caused by your injuries with the help of bicycle accident lawyers Bethesda, MD bicycle accident victims can rely on.

When does someone’s negligence make them liable for causing someone else’s injury?

When someone is injured because of someone else’s negligence, the negligent party or parties may be liable for the victim’s injuries. If a bicycle rider is injured in an accident that was caused by a defective or malfunctioning bicycle, one or more of the negligent parties that contributed to the malfunctioning bicycle being made available to consumers, may have to pay the victim and/or their family so that the victim and their family do not suffer further because of the financial hardships the victim’s accident caused.

Who is responsible for a malfunctioning bicycle?

When a bicycle is faulty or malfunctions, one or more of the parties who made the bicycle available for a consumer to purchase and ride, may be held partially or fully responsible for a bicycle accident victim’s injuries. These parties may include:

  • Designers
  • Engineers
  • Manufacturers
  • Assemblers
  • Distributors
  • Advertisers
  • Sellers

Because of the number of parties whose negligence, potentially may be responsible for, proving these kinds of personal injury claims can be tricky. If your malfunctioning bicycle caused an accident with other vehicles, this chain of responsibility can get even more complicated to try to prove. This is one of the many reasons people recommend getting help from Bethesda, MD bicycle accident lawyers if you are trying to hold a negligent party responsible for allowing an unsafe product to be made available to you or someone you love.

What kind of compensation can bicycle accident victims get for a malfunctioning bicycle?

The kind of compensation a bicycle accident victim may be entitled to is dependent on several factors. These include but are not limited to, the amount of fault that is placed on a negligent party for causing an accident and the expenses that are a result of the accident. Common reasons people seek the help of Bethesda, MD bicycle accident lawyers in trying to get compensation after being injured in a bicycle accident often include one or more of the following expenses:

  • Emergency services
  • Hospitalizations
  • Surgeries, procedures, treatments, etc.
  • Prescription and over the counter medications
  • Property damage
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of childcare and/or household management
  • Loss of health benefits
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Loss of abilities
  • Pain and suffering

When a family loses a loved member, the remaining members may be entitled to compensation for one or more of the above as well as one or more of the following:

  • Loss of consortium (spousal support)
  • Loss of parental guidance and support
  • Loss of retirement benefits
  • Funeral and burial or cremation
  • Grief and suffering

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.
