Standing Up For Injured Bicyclists
Bicyclists have little to protect them in the event of a collision with a motor vehicle. Many laws are in place to protect bicycle riders on the road, but this does not stop careless motorists from putting lives at risk and causing serious, life-altering injuries.
If you or someone close to you has been injured in a bicycle accident, you deserve compensation and the attorneys at Satterley & Kelley PLLC are here to help you obtain it. With law offices in Louisville, we have a proven record of success handling complex personal injury litigation for people throughout Kentucky.
How Were You Injured?
There are many ways in which drivers of motor vehicles put the lives of bicyclists at risk. Some of the most common acts that result in bicycle injuries include:
- Driving through bicycle lanes
- Crowding bicyclists off the shoulder of the road
- Failing to yield right of way to a bicyclist
Accidents can even occur when the car has been parked. If a driver or passenger opens their door into the path of an oncoming accident, the bicyclist may not be able to stop in time and collide with the open door at a high rate of speed.
Our lawyers have the experience and investigative resources to determine the root causes of bicycle accidents. We work aggressively to help our clients recover full and fair compensation for their losses. We also aim to hold negligent motorists accountable for their actions, thereby making Kentucky roads safer for everyone.
