Las Vegas Attorneys Handling Bicycle Accident Injury Claims

Bicycling is an increasingly popular activity for both recreational cyclists and commuters, especially in places like Las Vegas where conditions are generally dry and inviting for people to get out on the roads. While cyclists have the right to share the road with other vehicles, drivers are still adjusting to the reality of more and more bikes on the roadway. Whether a driver is simply unaware of the laws designed to protect bikers or is simply not paying attention, when a bicycle accident occurs it is important to get skilled legal help on your side.

At Kunin Law Group, our Las Vegas lawyers work hard to ensure that negligent drivers are held accountable for their actions and that you receive the compensation you need to move forward with your life. To schedule a free initial consultation, contact us online or call 702-438-8060.

Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable

Many people downplay collisions between motor vehicles and bicyclists, even going so far as to blame the victim. The fact is, drivers have a legal duty to be aware of cyclists, same as they would for any other vehicle on the road. Sharing the road is enshrined in the law and when drivers fail to live up to this duty; our attorneys are there to help hold them accountable. We handle all types of bike accidents, including those involving:

  • Failure to yield to a right-of-way
  • Crosswalk accidents
  • Bike lane accidents
  • Speeding
  • Texting and other distracted driving behaviors
  • Hit-and-run cases

Do Not Speak With Insurance Companies Before Speaking With Us

In most cases, the driver of a vehicle will have insurance, as required by law. The driver's insurance company will likely contact you shortly after the accident. They may even offer what seems like a generous lump settlement right away. Do not agree to any settlement without first seeking legal advice.

Insurance companies exist to make money. They will not necessarily offer you a settlement that is in your best interests. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may need months if not years of medical treatment and therapy. It is important to account for all of your damages following an accident, including pain and suffering. Our lawyers understand how to negotiate with insurance companies, and we are prepared to protect your interests in court, if necessary.
