Damages Our Bike Accident Lawyers Will Pursue for You
The difference in size between your bicycle and a passenger vehicle means you can suffer severe injuries in a collision. The severity of your injuries can also increase since you will not have the same safety features and protective measures as the occupants of the vehicle.
To ensure you can receive the immediate and ongoing treatments your recovery will require, we request a range of compensation for your medical expenses.
In addition to ongoing medical expenses, we also pursue:
- Ongoing losses of income
- Loss of future earnings
- Property damage or loss
- Physical disability
- Physical disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
We thoroughly investigate your accident and ensure no valid expenses are overlooked or omitted when we represent you. We also work hard to ensure your case is not undervalued or underpaid.
There Is a Deadline in North Carolina to File Your Bicycle Accident Lawsuit
As with all civil lawsuits, you have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit. For most injury victims, your case will be settled out of court. However, if yours does need to proceed to trial, we protect your right to file your lawsuit by respecting the statute of limitations.
In North Carolina:
- You generally have three years from the date of the bicycle accident to comply with the personal injury statute of limitations, according to S. § 1-52.
- You generally have two years from the date of a loved one’s demise to comply with the wrongful death statute of limitations, according to S. § 1-53.
If your minor child was injured in a bicycle accident, the statute of limitations tolls — or pauses — until their eighteenth birthday. The statute of limitations can fluctuate for a variety of additional reasons.
This can make compliance challenging. The best way to avoid the costly risks of non-compliance is to let our bicycle accident attorney handle it for you.
