One of the most widely used means of transportation worldwide is the bicycle. Many people have decided to use a bicycle in the United States since there is no requirement to get insurance or have a license to use a bicycle. Many cities now have bike lanes which are much safer for people who decide to use this means of transportation.
At Grupo MedLegal, one of our specialties is bicycle accidents. This type of case, with victims on bicycles, can vary depending on the type of accident.
Whenever the accident is the fault of a vehicle driver, the driver must pay for personal injuries and property damage resulting from the accident. In this case, the car insurance company will absorb all necessary expenses. It doesn’t matter if the injury is temporary or permanent: you will be compensated for a bicycle accident.
Another type of bicycle accident that we can help you with is when you have an accident or are injured and the government is at fault: for example, if you have an accident with a city bus, or if you fall because the road is in poor condition. Any time you have an accident while riding a bicycle, we can help you with the entire process of the financial liability claim. We will keep you informed throughout the process, and we will submit all proofs in court carefully and correctly.
If the accident is caused by a pedestrian, you can also make a claim for restitution for property damage and personal injuries. We know how to handle this type of legal process and we will come to an agreement with the other party, which in this case would be any type of insurance protecting the pedestrian causing the mishap at the time of the accident. Bicycle accidents can happen anywhere. When we ride a bicycle, we are exposed to many threats. In addition, many people just aren’t used to sharing the road with cyclists.

A bicycle accident can be a situation that is out of our control. The damages caused by this type of accident can involve both property damage and personal injury. In the United States in 2010 alone, there were 800 fatalities from bicycle accidents. We can avoid some accidents by taking the necessary precautions. Using a safety helmet is an important regulation: without this accessory, a bicycle accident can be fatal. It’s also essential not to get distracted while riding a bicycle. In order to guarantee safety on the roads, we should observe these guidelines: never use a cell phone and always exercise the greatest possible caution.
At the time of an accident, it’s important to remember to take pictures of the accident. It’s a good way to collect convincing evidence. What’s more, it’s indispensable to call police and make a report. Once these two steps are completed, you should contact a lawyer specializing in these cases. Grupo MedLegal has more than 30 years of experience handling each case professionally and individually. Furthermore, we will assist you and give you legal counsel without cost.
