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.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a bicycle accident through no fault of your own, it is crucial you contact one of our New Orleans bicycle accident attorneys at The Womac Law Firm as soon as possible. Having recovered millions on behalf of injured clients throughout our more than 35 years of personal injury practice, we can fight to ensure your rights are protected and help you pursue maximum compensation for your losses.

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.

Have Questions?

We Have Answers!
  • Do Commercial Trucks Have “Black Box” Devices?
    Some 18-wheelers and semis are equipped with an electronic on-board recorder (EOBR), which is sometimes called a “black box” device like those on airplanes. EOBRs track the amount of time that the vehicle is in operation. This information can be used to see if the truck driver was violating break schedules and possibly driving while exhausted. A few EOBR models can even track the truck’s speed, which could show that the trucker was breaking the speed limit at the time of the collision.
  • What Happens During a Truck Accident Investigation?

    The steps of a truck accident investigation will vary depending on the details of the crash. Typically, we will begin by surveying the accident site ourselves and comparing our findings with evidence that we have already been provided by our client or an insurance company investigator.

    For complicated cases, we can call in a crash reconstruction expert to assist with the investigation. Next, our attorneys will want to check the crash history of the truck driver and the trucking company’s safety records. We might be able to find a pattern of negligence that could help prove that the 18-wheeler caused the crash, not you.

  • How Long Will My Truck Accident Case Take?
    As with any legal matter, every personal injury case is different. Truck accident cases are time-sensitive due to the lengthy investigation involved. Evidence must be quickly preserved in order to accurately determine fault, as blame may not necessarily be placed on the driver of the truck. In a situation like this, the trucking company, manufacturer, truck owner, leasing company, or truck loader may be held responsible for your injuries or damages.
