Injury Attorney for North Carolina Bike Accident Victims
An experienced attorney can help you take legal action if you were struck by an at-fault motorist while riding your bike. Unfortunately, bicycle accidents occur more often then we’d like to believe. When a person riding a bike is struck by a car, truck or other motor vehicle, it is not uncommon for the bicyclist to suffer from any number of serious injuries. Drivers and passengers in vehicles are protected by steel doors, windshields, airbags, and a seat belt. Aside from their helmet, bike riders have no protection during an accident. As such, a bicyclist may suffer brain damage, paralysis, back or spinal cord injuries, internal injuries, disfigurement, permanent disability, or even death.
Recovering Compensation in a Bicycle Accident Case
The cost of treating the injuries sustained in a bicycle accident can easily escalate into possibly hundreds of thousands of dollars-a figure most people cannot afford, especially when their injuries keep them out work. Fortunately, accident victims may be able to recover compensation if they can prove another person was at fault for the accident. However, because North Carolina is a “contributory negligence” state, the defense can avoid paying damages by claiming the victim was partially at fault.
