Gonzales Bicycle Accident Lawyers
Seeking Compensation for Your Injuries
If you were hit by a car, truck, or other vehicle while riding a bicycle, you may have sustained serious injuries. Many biking injuries result in people hurtling into the street or being thrown onto the windshield of the vehicle that hit them.
In these cases, the driver's insurance company often attempts to deny that the accident was the driver's fault. They claim that you were wholly or partly responsible for the accident. When this happens, you need help from an experienced bicycle accident attorney.
At Chris Corzo Injury Attorneys, we have the knowledge, skills, and resources to fight for you. We know how to investigate the scene of an accident, interview witnesses, and collect evidence that will help prove your case. Our team can negotiate with insurance companies, and we are prepared to take your case to court when necessary.
We are here to help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries and other losses.
If you’ve been in a bicycle accident in the Gonzales, LA area, call us now at (225) 230-3110 and schedule a consultation with our lawyers.
Who Is Liable for Your Biking Injuries?
- When a driver hits a bicyclist, they are liable for any injuries the bicyclist suffers.
- If the driver hits only the person’s bike, they are liable for any damage to that bicycle.
- If the driver hits a bicyclist after failing to yield the right of way, they are liable for any injuries the bicyclist suffers.
- If the driver hits a bicyclist after swerving to avoid hitting a pedestrian, they are still liable for any injuries the bicyclist suffers.
