Catastrophic Injuries vs. Minor Injuries
The impact of a bicycle wreck can range from minor to catastrophic. A minor injury does not result in lasting or substantial damage like brain or spinal cord damage. On the other hand, catastrophic injuries are life-altering. Cases involving catastrophic injuries proceed very differently from those that result only in minor injuries.
First and foremost, catastrophic injuries result in much higher monetary recoveries – often in the millions. This is because catastrophic injuries often result in a lifetime of lost income and medical care. When the stakes are so high, insurers will closely examine every aspect of the case, looking for reasons to either deny it or to reduce your recovery to protect their bottom lines. Our bicycle accident attorneys will ensure that you are not pressured into accepting a settlement that is less than you deserve.
Because of the severity of the injuries and the seriousness of the claim, a catastrophic injury makes it less likely that you will receive a fair settlement amount from an insurance company. As such, it is more likely that a catastrophic case will proceed to trial.
Bicycle Accidents Resulting in Wrongful Death
The loss of a loved one in an accident is beyond devastating, particularly when someone else’s negligence is to blame. Pursuing legal action for your loss may be the last thing you want to do, but it’s important to consult an attorney as soon as possible. As time passes, key evidence can disappear, and the statute of limitations may toll. Because of this, you may eventually lose the opportunity to pursue damages down the road.
At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, we are proud to represent the family members of those who have died in bicycle accidents. Our attorneys will apply their extensive knowledge and negotiation strategies to help you pursue fair and just compensation for your loss. At the same time, we understand that no figure can adequately fill the void left by a loss, and so we treat our clients with the utmost compassion.
