An Overview of Bicycle Accident Claims in Oregon
Oregon is a great place for biking—but drivers need to get better about sharing the road with cyclists. The Oregon Department of Transportation reports that several hundred bicyclists are injured in collisions with motor vehicles each year. Similar to pedestrians, cyclists are inherently exposed to danger. When a bike accident occurs, a rider may suffer serious injuries. Immediate medical treatment is a must.
Bike accident claims are fault-based legal cases. The party deemed responsible for causing a bike accident through negligence can be held liable for the resulting damages. Under Oregon law (Or. Rev. Stat. § 31.600), bike accident injury claims fall under comparative negligence. Liability for a collision will be divided proportionally to each party’s assigned level of fault. Every bike accident should be investigated by an experienced attorney.
Injured Bicyclists Deserve Full and Fair Financial Compensation
Bike accident victims need financial support to pay their bills and care for themselves and their family. Sadly, the big insurance companies do not make things easy on people. They try to minimize settlements. Our Oregon bike accident lawyer has the skills and legal knowledge to help you maximize your recovery. You may be entitled to financial compensation for:
- Bike repair or replacement;
- Ambulance and emergency room costs;
- Medical bills and other health expenses;
- Lost wages and loss of earning ability;
- Pain and suffering & mental distress;
- Disability or disfigurement; and
- Wrongful death of a family member.
