Montana Bicycle Accident Lawyers
Putting Your Life Back Together After a Serious Bike Accident
Bicyclists face serious risks on Montana’s roadways when motorists are distracted or otherwise negligent. Even a relatively low-speed collision between a car and a bicycle may leave the rider with catastrophic injuries, such as broken bones, head trauma, or spinal cord injuries. Rebuilding one’s life after such a traumatic incident can be difficult, but Hoyt & Blewett PLLC is here to help.
Why You Need an Attorney
Our Montana bicycle accident attorneys understand the challenges you and your family may face in the aftermath of an accident of this nature. The insurance company may try to undervalue your claim or delay payment, leaving you facing significant financial problems as medical bills pile up. For over 30 years, we have been representing Montana’s injured, fighting for their rights to fair compensation after serious accidents and injuries. We are here to help you.
Proving Liability in Your Bicycle Accident Case
Cause is one of the main issues your Montana bicycle accident lawyer will consider when taking on your case. If we can determine what caused your accident, we can also determine who should be held liable, or legally responsible, for paying for the injuries you have experienced. The at-fault party may be responsible for your medical bills, lost earnings, and even emotional trauma.
The following are examples of scenarios that may cause bicycle accidents:
- A motorist making a right turn into a bicyclist’s path.
- A distracted driver veering out of his or her lane and into a bicyclist.
- Drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs, leading to a collision.
- A motorist giving a bicycle rider insufficient space on the side of the road.
- A driver pulling out of a parking lot or driveway without checking for bicyclists.
- A driver who is texting and runs a red light, striking a bicycle rider.
A thorough investigation and possibly accident reconstruction can reveal and prove the cause of your bicycle accident. With our resources and knowledge, we are confident in our ability to assist you.
