Wellington Bicycle Accident Lawyers

While trading four wheels for two and ditching the gas-guzzling engine is admirable, it makes you far more vulnerable to serious injuries in the event of an accident. Unlike cars, bikes do not have a crumple zone, which means riders must bear the full force of an impact. As a result, collisions between bikes and motor vehicles often result in catastrophic injuries to the rider.

At Donaldson & Weston, we are proud to fight for those who have been injured or lost loved ones due to the negligence of others. If you or someone in your family was hurt in a bicycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation. To determine the most strategic way to proceed, contact us for a free consultation.

How Long Will My Bicycle Accident Claim Take to Resolve?

You can expect the costs associated with recovering from serious injuries to increase with every passing day. Depending on the circumstances, lost wages alone can add hundreds or even thousands of dollars to your economic damages with every missed paycheck. There may also be copays to cover, as well as daily services like home care, transportation, and domestic help.

The impact of sustaining bicycle accident injuries can threaten an entire family's financial security from day one. As a result, claimants are typically motivated to settle as soon as possible. Unfortunately, there's no set timeline for resolving personal injury or wrongful death claims. The total duration of your case from start to finish will depend on a variety of factors including:

  • The severity of your injuries and the amount of time it takes to reach maximum medical improvement;

  • The strength of any evidence of liability;

  • The strength of any evidence of damages;

  • The number of defendants and the complexity of the case in general;

  • The insurance adjuster's willingness to cooperate;

  • Whether you were partially at fault for the accident;

  • Whether the incident warrants a punitive award; and

  • Whether the case goes to court.

A reputable personal injury attorney would never promise to secure a specific payout by a particular date; however, seeking legal counsel right away can streamline the proceedings considerably. A bicycle accident lawyer from Donaldson & Weston can perform an immediate investigation to gather evidence of liability and damages. Our legal team can also apply legal pressure where needed to obtain evidence in a timely fashion.
