You Need Protection From The Drivers Insurance Company
There are many and varied causes of bicycle accidents in Oregon. While most collisions between bikes and cars take place at intersections and involve driver inattention or failing to yield the right away to the slower cyclist, there are many other reasons accidents take place. It is not unusual for an auto accident to have multiple causes. These may include driver negligence, dangerous conditions, or a driver operating a vehicle while drunk or under the influence of intoxicants. Typically, the bicyclist has no warning and little time to react before being struck by a motor vehicle. After being injured, the cyclist is often helpless and confused after speaking with law enforcement, witnesses, and “friendly” representatives from various insurance companies. When the cause of a collision is in question, a cyclist needs an experienced bicycle attorney advocate to make sure his or her rights are protected.
Your Injuries Are Serious – We Care
When cyclists collide with much heavier cars and trucks, riders can experience life-altering injuries such as: brain trauma, compound fractures, severe multiple fractures, spinal injuries, and paralysis, or burns and bruises. These are serious medical conditions that often require extensive medical care and rehabilitation services.
