Philadelphia Bicycle Accident Attorneys

Recover Essential Damages that Safeguard Your Quality of Life

For many Pennsylvanians, bicycling is both a popular method of transportation and an enjoyable approach to recreational exercise. However, poor road conditions, obstructed bike routes, and negligent drivers have created an unsafe environment for cyclists. Each year, there are over 500,000 bicycle accident-related injuries reported in the United States. Most of these injuries are caused by distracted and reckless automobile drivers.

Bicycle accidents frequently result in traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and other physical traumas that necessitate expensive medical treatments and rehabilitative services. If you’ve been injured by the negligent actions of a driver, contact the Philadelphia bicycle accident lawyers at Marciano & MacAvoy, P.C. Our trial-tested legal team can investigate your case and negotiate with the defendant’s insurance company on your behalf. With our help, you can recover essential damages that facilitate your physical and financial recovery.

If your standard of living is dependent on a positive case result, turn to the Philadelphia bicycle accident attorneys at Marciano & MacAvoy, P.C. We’re available 24/7. Call us today at (215) 608-2183.

Pursuing Compensation After an Accident

Unfortunately, many on-the-go drivers tend to ignore or resent any cyclists who dare to utilize shared roadways. This often leads to collisions caused by distracted and aggressive driving behaviors. Because bicycles lack built-in safety features, cyclists typically sustain severe and even catastrophic injuries when accidents occur.

Bicycle accidents are commonly caused by these dangerous driving behaviors:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Ignoring traffic signals at intersections and crossroads
  • Distracted driving
  • Texting or inputting GPS coordinates on a cell phone
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Failing to yield

A tragic bicycle accident can irreparably impact a cyclist’s personal life and career opportunities. Fortunately, injured cyclists have grounds to pursue both economic and non-economic damages after a collision. If your lawsuit is successful, you can recover compensation that accounts for your past and future medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning potential, pain and suffering, and more.

The Defendant’s Insurance Company

The defendant’s insurance provider may try to contact you after the accident to try and trick you into making a recorded statement that undermines your case. They may also try to save money by pressuring you into accepting an inadequate settlement amount.

At Marciano & MacAvoy, P.C., our attorneys can review the extent of your injury-related losses and negotiate a settlement amount that actively reflects your financial and legal needs. If necessary, we can even litigate on your behalf in court to secure a verdict that meets your legal and financial objectives.

The Statute of Limitations

In Pennsylvania, a plaintiff has 2 years from the date of their injury to file a claim against the negligent party. Even so, it’s imperative that you retain legal representation as soon as possible. Once the statute of limitations has passed, the court may refuse to hear your case or the defendant’s legal team will request a case dismissal, effectively hindering your path to restitution.
