Belleville Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Belleville is a beautiful town that many residents and tourists alike enjoying traveling through the town by bicycle. While Belleville has many bike paths and green spaces meant just for this reason, a cyclist must first get to the path on their bike before they are completely safe. Many avid cyclists like to use a bike to get errands done, or just take in the scenery of the town.

While biking around Belleville is usually very safe, there are times when accidents happen and when they do, the cyclist can be left with severe injuries.

There are many different types of compensation available to help accident victims with the costs associated with those injuries. In order to receive them, they need to speak to a Belleville bicycle accident lawyer as soon as possible. A capable bicycle accident lawyer can advocate for them and make sure their rights are protected.

Bicycle Accident Injuries

Cyclists have very little protection while they are out on the road. The only thing between them, other vehicles, and the pavement is a helmet and maybe a pair of cycling gloves. Because of this, when they are struck by a vehicle, the injuries they suffer can be some of the most severe. The most common injuries in bicycle accident injuries are:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Multiple broken bones
  • Amputations
  • Internal bleeding

Once these injuries are sustained accident victims can be left with medical and rehabilitation expenses, a loss of income if they are unable to work, and other costs. There are many options available for compensation and a bicycle accident lawyer in Belleville can help accident victims receive them.

Types of Compensation Available

Most people will try to file an accident benefits claim first after a bicycle accident. These are the benefits that are available from the insurance company. If the cyclist has a car and their own insurance policy, they will need to file through their own company, even if they were not in their car at the time.

Cyclists that do not have their own insurance company can still claim these accident benefits, but they will need to file through the motorist’s insurance company.

This can be difficult in some cases, such as hit and runs. In these cases, there may be other accident benefits available. These are available through the Motor Vehicle Accident Claims (MVAC) Fund. These benefits can be accessed when there is no other insurance company to go through.

It is important that victims wishing to claim accident benefits either through an insurance company or the MVAC speak to a qualified Belleville bicycle accident lawyer before they do. A lawyer will be able to speak to the MVAC or insurance companies for them and get the most amount of compensation available.

Tort Claims

The second option accident victims have is to file a tort claim. Filing a personal injury claim, or lawsuit, against the at-fault party, can often supplement the accident benefits supplied by the insurance company.

While there are limits on some types of compensation in tort claims, such as pain and suffering, this is compensation that is available and not provided by insurance companies.
