Bicycling is a popular activity throughout Central Virginia and the Valley. According to the National Park Service, the Blue Ridge Parkway alone provides 469 miles of picturesque riding through the Commonwealth and into North Carolina. Unfortunately sharing the roads with automobiles, trucks and motorcycles sometimes results in crashes that seriously injure a rider. At Tucker Griffin Barnes P.C. in Charlottesville, our personal injury attorneys have advocated for injured bike riders for more than 30 years. If you’ve been hurt in a cycling accident, our knowledgeable attorneys can provide the advice and advocacy you need to recover full, fair compensation.
A bicycle offers no protection to a rider who is struck by a vehicle or thrown off by some other force. Often, the secondary impact against the pavement or a curb can cause even greater injury than the first blow. Bicycle riders may suffer:
Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may face a long recovery period where you will not be able to work and your medical bills will mount. Our legal team is determined to recover personal injury compensation for the full extent of the harm you’ve endured, which includes your economic losses as well as your pain and suffering.
To recover compensation, you must prove that someone else is liable for your crash. Common causes of bicycle accidents in Virginia include:
Our legal team performs a thorough investigation of every crash to determine who is at fault. We also protect our clients from allegations of contributory negligence which could bar any recovery.
