The Role of a Little Rock Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Bicycle accident lawyers have an in-depth understanding of the laws and regulations regarding bicycle safety and know the unique challenges posed by bicycle accident claims. They can help you navigate the difficulties of your case. 

They work tirelessly to assist victims in seeking compensation for their injuries through careful work and preparation, from the initial consultation to representation in court. Since bicycle cases can be complex due to the concept of negligence and determining fault, having the assistance of a bicycle accident attorney is crucial. 

When you hire our team at NST Law, you can focus on healing and leave the burden of your legal case to a professional, knowing your case is in good hands. 

The Bicycle Accident Legal Process in Little Rock

Several steps are necessary to initiate pursuing a bicycle accident claim. The first essential step is to hire a local lawyer specializing in bicycle accident cases. After you select a firm near you, your lawyer will start with an initial consultation to gather the essential details surrounding your case. 

In the following days and weeks, your lawyer will work through a detailed investigation to collect all details pertinent to your case. The evidence they gather varies but may include traffic surveillance footage, eyewitness testimonies, dashcam footage, and police reports. This evidence will be pivotal in helping your lawyer build the best possible case.  

Establishing fault in bicycle accident cases requires your lawyer to establish the following legal elements of negligence: 

  • Duty: The motorist at fault owed you a duty of care.
  • Breach: The motorist breached that duty by failing to exercise reasonable care. 
  • Causation: The breach of that duty caused the accident and your injuries.
  • Damages: You suffered injuries and other losses because of the accident. 

If your lawyer can establish negligence and prove the other party’s fault, you can pursue compensation.

However, it’s crucial to understand that each case is different. Some cases may require mediation and arbitration or a third-party individual who assists in settling a dispute. These cases may end in a settlement, but your lawyer can help you decide whether to settle or take the case to court. 

If your case goes to trial, your lawyer will aggressively fight for you and seek a favorable outcome. 

Understanding Bicycle Accidents in Little Rock

In 2019, 7,051 cyclists and pedestrians died from Arkansas traffic crashes. While many cities, including Little Rock, are making efforts to improve cyclist and pedestrian safety, the danger remains a constant risk. 

Drivers and cyclists must remain alert, as distractions are a prevalent cause of these accidents. Bicycle accidents can stem from various reasons, including making an unsafe lane change, turning without looking, driving too closely to the bike lane, and using a cell phone behind the wheel.

Unfortunately, accidents between thousand-pound vehicles and flimsy bike frames are often catastrophic, with common injuries including the following:

  • Head and neck injuries
  • Concussions and brain injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Bone fractures
  • Organ damage
  • Road rash, abrasions, and bruises
  • Lacerations 

Legal Rights and Options for Bicycle Accident Victims

Like motor vehicle drivers, bicyclists must follow rules to promote the safety of themselves and other drivers, from riding with the flow of traffic to wearing a headlight at night. But cyclists might be eligible to recover compensation when an accident occurs due to another’s negligence. 

The process of filing an insurance claim varies based on the insurer. However, since insurance companies often try to pay the least amount possible, it’s best to enlist help from a skilled Little Rock bicycle accident lawyer. 

Under Arkansas law, cyclists involved in accidents have three years to pursue a personal injury claim, so working within this time frame is essential. 

Seeking Compensation for Bicycle Accident Injuries in Little Rock

Victims pursuing a bicycle accident lawsuit may recover various types of compensation, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages
  • Funeral expenses and loss of consortium in wrongful death cases

The value of your bicycle accident claim varies based on several factors, including the extent of your injuries and the value of the property damage. Your lawyer will use factors specific to your case to determine a fair amount, using this number to negotiate with insurance companies and at-fault parties to secure compensation. 

While there are no caps on most damages in personal injury lawsuits, Arkansas has imposed a $250,000 cap on punitive damages

Practicing safety measures, including wearing reflective gear and moving with the traffic flow, can promote your security while cycling. However, accidents may still happen, and you may have the grounds to pursue a personal injury claim.
