Don’t Forgo Compensation After a Bicycle Injury

by Staff Blogger | April 13th, 2020

Whether you bike around town for exercise or as a way of commuting to and from work or school, you know that Nashville’s roads aren’t always the most welcoming places for bicyclists. Even streets with dedicated bike lanes can put cyclists at risk, especially when drivers don’t pay attention or are distracted by their cell phones and other devices. Bicycle accidents result in serious injuries, and that’s why it’s important for injured riders to seek legal representation.

At Ponce Law, our Nashville bicycle accident attorneys believe that riders have every right to use the city’s streets and roads, provided that riding on them is permissible by law. However, many drivers are impatient when driving around bicyclists. They may attempt to pass them in ways that endanger cyclists, or they may fail to give them enough room to maneuver.

It’s our goal to help injured bicyclists get maximum compensation after accidents that weren’t their fault—especially when they were caused by negligent motorists. We know that bicyclists often feel helpless and underrepresented after crashes, and they may believe that others don’t take their injuries seriously. Our own Michael Ponce is an avid cyclist, and the entire firm believes in advocating for the rights of cyclists every chance we get.

If you were hurt in a bicycle accident that wasn’t your fault, we want to speak with you. You have rights to pursue maximum compensation for things like medical bills and lost wages, and it’s our goal to help you get every penny you’re owed. Contact us today for a free consultation.
