New Orleans Bicycle Accident Lawyers
Bike Accident Claims in Louisiana
While bicycle riding can be an efficient and enjoyable method of transportation and exercise, it can also be extremely dangerous if drivers do not take the proper care to look out for cyclists on the roads. Since bicycles are considerably smaller and lighter than traditional passenger vehicles, cyclists will almost always get the worst of a collision, potentially resulting in broken bones, road rash, spinal cord damage, traumatic brain injuries, or even death.

Who Is Liable for My Collision?
While a bicycle accident can occur under a nearly endless number of circumstances, the vast majority of these collisions are the direct result of a driver’s careless actions while behind the wheel. If it can be proven that your accident was indeed caused by driver negligence, you may have a claim to compensation for a wide range of damages including medical bills, damage to your bike, lost income, pain and suffering, and rehabilitation costs.
Drivers can be held liable for bicycle accidents caused by the following acts:
- Driving at unsafe speeds
- Driving while distracted
- Driving while intoxicated
- Failing to check blind spots
- Changing lanes without signaling
Since Louisiana has a one-year statute of limitations on all personal injury and property damage lawsuits, you must consult with our attorneys as soon as possible to ensure you remain compliant with all relevant deadlines. Upon a detailed examination of the facts surrounding your collision, our attorneys can craft a custom-tailored strategy on your behalf that maximizes your chances of securing every penny of your deserved reimbursement.
