Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Bike Accident Injuries in DCUnfortunately, bike accident injuries in DC are a common occurrence that leave many cyclists injured and with their bicycles damaged beyond repair. There is a heavy presence of bicycle riders in Washington DC and the surrounding areas. Many people use bicycles as a cost effective and efficient way to commute to work and to run errands, and many people ride bicycles for exercise, pleasure, and site seeing. According to the Washington Post, DC has 145 miles of bike lanes with only a small portion of them that protect bicycle riders from cars.

If you have been injured in a bicycle accident or if a family member died as a result of a bicycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation. When someone is injured because of someone else’s negligent, malicious, or reckless behavior, he or she may be able to recover for their injuries and property damage through a personal injury claim. When someone dies because of this, his or her surviving family members may be entitled to compensation (often through the deceased person’s estate). The person or entity that caused an injury, or their insurance company, may be liable for the costs incurred by the accident victim’s injuries and any damage to their property. Many people find it easiest to pursue the compensation they are entitled to with the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer who is licensed to practice in the state their accident occurred.

Common Types of Bike Accident Injuries

Anytime a bicycle rider is in an accident there is a greater risk of getting injured than if they were in an automobile or truck when the accident occurred because bicycle riders do not have a protective structure around them the way people in a car or truck do. No matter how a bicycle rider is injured, he or she may be entitled to compensation. Common types of bike accident injuries in DC include but are not limited to:

  • Cuts, scrapes and lacerations
  • Sprained and torn muscles, ligaments and tendons
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Loss of limbs
  • Disfigurement

While the above are common types of bicycle accident injuries it is not a comprehensive list nor is it intended to be legal advice.

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.
