Draper Bicycle Accident Attorney Serving Utah
When Cars Don’t Follow The Rules Of The Road, You Can End Up Injured
One of the more common complaints from bicyclists is that drivers don’t see them, despite all of the reflective tape and lights bicyclists wear. Unfortunately, this lack of attention can cause a serious accident, with you as the bicyclist getting the raw end of the deal. If you have been seriously injured by a negligent driver in a bicycle accident, our Draper attorneys can help.

Our experienced trial lawyers don’t leave money on the table; they fight for what you deserve.
Bicyclists Risk Severe Injuries Because Of Their Lack Of Protection
Bicyclist, like motorcyclists, don’t have the protection of a car frame and safety equipment surrounding them. They only have a helmet to protect their heads. Unlike motorcyclists, most bicyclists don’t wear leather or Kevlar to prevent additional injury. This means that a car, even at low speeds, can do very serious damage to a bicyclist in an accident.
A bike injury can include:
- Road rash
- Broken limbs
- Head injuries
- Traumatic brain injury
- Back and neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
Any of these bicycle accident injuries may result in a huge hospital bill, days, weeks or months off of work, and years of rehabilitation. Insurance companies won’t offer enough to cover all of these costs.
Our attorneys work with medical professionals to assess all of the harm done to you by the accident. They also consult with financial experts to calculate the cost of the accident over your lifetime, including future therapies and lost work potential.
We build a solid case to bring to the insurance adjuster as an opening point for negotiations. Often, we can come to a reasonable agreement. If we feel you are being treated unfairly, we will take your case to court.
