Columbus Bicycle Accident Attorneys

Ultimately, it doesn't really matter what caused your bike accident. It may have been a car driver's distraction. It may have been a delivery truck driver's carelessness or a bus driver's fatigue.

What really matters is putting your life back together again. At Lamkin, Van Eman, Trimble & Dougherty in Columbus, we can help you do that.

Our lawyers have considerable experience handling bicycle accident cases. We know how to move your case for compensation forward — even if you are still flat on your back and recovering from the injuries you suffered.

Factors That Affect Bike Accidents

Bicycle accidents often have one or more of these complicating factors:

  • In a collision with a car, truck or bus, a bicyclist is often thrown into the air. There may be even more points of impact on the bicycle rider's body: the vehicle's front bumper, the windshield and the ground where the injured person falls.
  • A bicyclist is unprotected, just like a pedestrian, but the bicyclist may also be traveling at a significant speed at the time of a crash. This can further compound the violence involved in the injury.
  • Injuries are often severe, catastrophic or fatal. Head injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries and crush injuries (when a bicyclist is run over) are examples of injuries that frequently affect bicyclists involved in crashes.
  • Hit-and-run bicycle accidents are common.
  • Even when a motorist is identified, the driver of a car or truck that collided with a bicycle may have little or no insurance.

How Students Are Affected

University students and recreational bicyclists are commonplace in traffic around Columbus. A bike accident injury that interrupts a student's semester can be costly in ways that go beyond medical bills. Losing a semester of college can be equivalent to throwing thousands of dollars down the drain.

Lost Wages After A Bike Accident

Working people often lose wages totaling thousands of dollars as they go through therapy and rehabilitation after a bicycle injury. If injuries are severe, returning to work may not be an option. Losing wages is a significant part of your overall losses, along with medical expenses, pain and suffering.

Your bicycle accident attorney should be prepared to fight on your behalf to help you recover compensation for all of your injuries and losses. Lamkin, Van Eman, Trimble & Dougherty is prepared to scrutinize every possible source of compensation to help maximize your recovery.
