Bicycling is a popular pastime, form of exercise, and mode of transportation. However, because of their near-complete exposure to the impact of a collision, bicyclists are also extremely vulnerable to serious injury in the event of an accident. In addition to weeks or months of treatment and physical therapy, they can also face enormous medical bills and lost wages due to time missed at work. The bicycle accident lawyers at NST Law can help you seek compensation for these losses and more. Contact us today to schedule your free consultation.

Bicyclists are some of the most vulnerable road users out there. This is because they have little to no protection from the full impact of an oncoming vehicle. When involved in auto accidents, they are at high risk of suffering devastating and sometimes even fatal injuries. Folks who survive may be left struggling with enormous medical bills, months of recovery, time missed at work, pain, suffering, and long-term disability.  

If you have been injured in a bicycle accident, you may be entitled to legal compensation from the at-fault party. The skilled Jackson bicycle accident lawyers at NST Law have defended the rights of accident victims for over 30 years, and we understand how serious injuries affect the lives of victims and their family members.

Our team is committed to helping you navigate the legal aftermath of your bicycle accident so that you can begin moving forward with your life. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation

The Role of a Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Often, bicycle accidents are caused by negligent drivers in cars, buses, trucks, and other motorized vehicles. This means that victims must prove the legal elements of negligence—duty, breach, causation, and harm—by a preponderance of the evidence to recover compensation for their injuries and losses. Proving these elements can be relatively straightforward or quite difficult, depending on the facts of the case. 

Our Jackson bike injury attorneys have the knowledge and resources needed to conduct a thorough, independent investigation to uncover as much evidence as possible. We know what facts to look for that might indicate negligence, such as drunk driving, distracted driving, inattentive driving, fatigued driving, or other behavior on the defending driver’s part.

From medical expenses and lost wages to pain and suffering, we’re prepared to seek full and fair compensation for you. We can navigate the insurance claims process and negotiations on your behalf so you can focus on what matters most: your recovery. With our team in your corner, you can rest assured that you’ll have a dedicated legal advocate fighting for your best interests at every turn.

Steps To Take After a Bicycle Accident in Jackson, MS

What you do immediately following a bicycle accident on Jackson’s busy roads can greatly affect the strength of your case if you choose to take legal action. Our bike collision attorneys suggest taking the following steps if you’ve been involved in a bicycle accident:

  • Move to a safe location – If it’s safe to do so, move yourself and your bicycle out of the roadway to prevent further accidents. Check yourself for injuries and take note of any alarming symptoms. 
  • Call 911 – It’s important to report the accident to the police, even if it seems minor at first glance. Be sure to request an ambulance if you notice any signs or symptoms of an injury. When they arrive, they will also prepare an accident report that will later become important evidence in your case. 
  • Gather evidence – Take photos or videos of the accident scene, including damaged vehicles, your bike, road conditions, visible injuries, and any safety equipment you wore during the accident. Take time to gather contact and insurance information from the driver who hit you. Also, gather contact information from any witnesses to the accident.
  • Seek medical attention – Some bicycle accident injuries take time to show symptoms, but a doctor can often spot them before they worsen. If you don’t go to the hospital immediately after the accident, see a doctor as soon as possible. Keep a copy of all medical records and bills related to this initial visit and any follow-up appointments.
  • Consult a bicycle injury lawyer – Avoid discussing the details of the accident with the other party’s insurance company. Instead, contact a bike accident lawyer at  NST Law. We can help you understand your legal options, negotiate with insurance companies, and help you navigate your next steps. 

Compensation for Bicycle Accidents in Jackson, MS

Under Mississippi law, you may be entitled to compensation for various types of damages if you suffered a bicycle accident injury due to another person’s negligence. These damages may compensate you for medical bills, lost wages, lowered earning capacity, emotional distress, pain, suffering, permanent disability, and more. 

Further, many injured bicyclists suffer permanent scarring and disfigurement due to the impact of the oncoming vehicle or hitting the pavement. Our firm helps victims recover compensation for scarring and disfigurement, and we understand what may be needed to substantiate this aspect of your case.

Our process of pursuing bicycle injury compensation begins with a thorough evaluation of the accident and resulting damages. We’ll collect all available evidence proving the other party’s liability and calculate your damages. We may then send a demand letter to the at-fault party’s insurer. This will launch settlement negotiations. 

NST Law’s bicycle accident lawyers in Jackson, MS, will negotiate vigorously to secure a fair settlement in out-of-court negotiations. However, if the insurance company does not make a reasonable settlement offer, we may talk with you about bringing the case to court. If we take this route, a jury or a judge will decide whether to award you damages and how much compensation you will receive.

Yes. In Missouri, the statute of limitations normally gives you five years from the date of injury to file a personal injury claim and three years from the date of death to file a wrongful death lawsuit. This may seem like a long time. However, it is wise to seek legal representation as soon as possible. That is the best way to ensure crucial evidence is not lost or tampered with.

If you miss the correct filing deadline, your case will most likely be dismissed in court. Though there are a few exceptions to this strictly enforced rule, it is best to check with an attorney before relying on them.
