Bicycle Accidents

Helping the injured recover compensation

Bicycles are a common sight on the streets of Charleston and throughout West Virginia. When everyone follows the rules of the road, riding a bike is usually safe. But a collision with a negligent driver of a car or truck can cause serious injuries for bicyclists. The Charleston bicycle accident attorneys at Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC hold negligent drivers accountable.

Unlike passengers and drivers in cars, bicyclists do not have a body of metal protecting them from outside elements. When bicycles and motor vehicles collide, it is no surprise that the bicyclist almost always incurs more injuries. These injuries can include broken bones, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injury.

Even victims who are less seriously injured may still require many months of medical treatment to resolve their injuries and return to the lives they led before the accident. Many bicycle accidents involve children, and these young victims can be permanently affected by this extremely frightening and emotional situation.

Negligence is a serious factor in bicycle accidents

The majority of bicycle accidents are caused by distracted drivers who fail to see that they are sharing the road with a bicyclist. Other car accidents involving bicycles are hit and run, which means that the driver of the car or truck leaves before you can get their insurance or contact information. Whatever your situation may be, our attorneys can help.

Our firm offers aggressive legal representation that will fight for every possible form of compensation. Your case should be evaluated by our firm as early as possible after the accident. When we get involved early in the process, we can obtain and preserve any evidence necessary to support the claim.

If there is any attempt by the insurance company to reduce your compensation, or challenge our case or make the claims process difficult, we are well qualified to take the case to court for a verdict. We are trial lawyers with a long record of success in difficult cases, and have achieved many significant victories, both in settlements and verdicts, over our years in practice.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a bicycle accident, get an experienced and aggressive attorney who will fight for you every step of the way. Contact us for a free consultation with a Charleston bicycle accident lawyer. We'll go over your options and answer any questions you have.
