Possible Damages We Pursue

Too often, injured victims don’t know what they’re owed. Sadly, insurers and liable parties won’t help. In fact, they could work against you to not only neglect certain types of damages, but also reduce the compensation you do know about.

The bicycle injury attorneys serving Glendale at our firm fight for fair damages and work to maximize them, looking at related losses you might miss.

Generally speaking, you could receive compensation for:

  • Past, current, and future medical care
  • Lost income from all sources
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Pain and suffering and emotional distress
  • Wrongful death expenses and losses

Insurance adjusters typically offer compensation at the low end of the spectrum, their findings based on averages and a hope that you will settle for less. The reality is that many injuries vary in severity based on variables like your health history and the accident type.

For example, three days in the hospital might average $30,000 according to However, if that hospitalization was for a traumatic brain injury, your costs could be 74 percent more expensive according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).

We don’t expect you to know these stats or even all the information in your case. In fact, we don’t want you to have to worry about this at all. Our Glendale, AZ bike accident lawyers can gather information on your specific injuries, tally up your losses, search for compensation you might have missed, and negotiate for a fair amount.

Investigation and Evidence in Bike Accident Cases

Experiencing an accident while on a bike is disorienting, so much so that you might not know what actually happened to you. Although insurance adjusters investigate claims, you have the right to gather your own evidence to show both what happened and what you are owed. Our lawyers, support staff, and consultants can conduct this investigation for you, so it’s one less thing on your plate while you recover.

Evidence of Negligence

Proving a driver or other party caused your accident involves proof like:

  • Photos from the scene
  • Traffic or security camera footage
  • Dash cam footage
  • Witness accounts
  • Clothing from the accident
  • Damage to your bike
  • Police reports
  • Medical records
  • Drug and alcohol testing
  • Cell phone and texting data
  • Social media postings
  • Analysis of debris
  • Accident reconstruction
  • Expert consultation

Personal injury cases are based on a preponderance of evidence showing that it’s more likely than not that someone caused your injuries. In other words, the more information we have, the better.

This evidence can help highlight negligent actions like driving while impaired or distracted, failing to yield, ignoring signs and signals, speeding, or illegal turns. All of these could point to drivers as liable parties.

We may also follow evidence to other liable parties. For instance, if a car hit you because it had faulty brakes, we can pursue the car manufacturer or an auto shop for negligence. Camera footage might show that a road lacked proper lights or signage, leaving a local government liable. We explore all the paths the evidence takes us and may even file claims or suits against more than one party.

Evidence of Losses

Proving someone’s careless action caused your injuries is just one part of pursing a claim or suit. We also need evidence to back up what we seek in damages. We might gather:

  • Hospital and office visit bills
  • Diagnostic testing and imaging
  • Prescriptions for medication and equipment
  • Treatment plans and assessments
  • Receipts for out-of-pocket costs
  • Pay stubs and employment records
  • Expert analysis and testimony

These can work together to help us argue for both economic damages like medical bills or lost income and noneconomic damages like pain and suffering.

What Is the Timeline of a Bicycle Accident Case?

If a driver or other liable party caused your accident and have insurance coverage, you should file a claim as soon as possible. The longer you wait to do so, the more scrutiny you will face by adjusters. Delays in reporting accidents arouse suspicion that you are not as injured as you claim.

In some cases, you may need to proceed to filing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. You typically have two years to file. However, don’t assume this is the deadline in your case, as various factors can change it on a case-by-case basis. Check with our lawyers to determine what deadlines apply to you.
