Riviera Beach Bicycle Accident Lawyers

Bicyclists riding alongside moving traffic have many of the same rights and responsibilities as motorists. Unfortunately, they don't have the same protection in the force of impact, which can make collisions between bikes and cars catastrophic for the riders involved.

If you were hurt in a cycling accident through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to compensation for all resulting damages. To determine if you have grounds for a claim, turn to the seasoned personal injury lawyers at Donaldson & Weston.

We understand the financial stress that unanticipated injuries can place on the whole family, so we require no money upfront. Additionally, you do not have to pay a retainer to take advantage of our legal services.

Will I Have to Go to Trial?

Recovering from serious injuries is physically, emotionally, and financially draining. Since you have enough to worry about in the aftermath of a serious bicycle accident, the thought of navigating complicated court proceedings on top of everything else can seem overwhelming.

Fortunately, most personal injury claims are resolved before going to trial. To increase the chances that your case will end with a fair settlement, you can:

  • Start gathering evidence of liability right away;

  • Stay off social media as long as the claim is pending;

  • Document all costs associated with treating your injuries so there is no question as to the damages you have incurred; and

  • Turn to a law firm that has a track record of success in bicycle accident claims.

Although the strategies listed above can help streamline the proceedings, there is always the chance that your case will end up in court. If the opposing party refuses to cooperate but you have sufficient evidence of liability and damages, it may be in your best interests to go to trial. Fortunately, if you hire a seasoned bicycle accident attorney with litigation experience, you will not have to worry about going before a judge or jury alone.

At Donaldson & Weston, we prepare every case for trial even if a settlement is the expected outcome. This lets the insurance adjuster know from the start that we are serious about achieving justice and fair compensation. It also eliminates any unnecessary delays in the event that we do end up going to court. Our goal will be to win a fair settlement as soon as possible so you can move on with life, but we have the litigation skills and resources to go to trial if necessary.
