Get an experienced Nashville attorney if you were hit on your bike
Many people enjoy bicycling in the Nashville area and throughout Middle Tennessee, but it only takes one negligent driver to cause a car accident that leaves bicyclists seriously injured. You deserve financial compensation if you were hurt in a bicycle crash, but the legal process can be complicated. That’s why you need an experienced attorney in your corner.
The Law Office of Eric Beasley has helped thousands of clients throughout the Nashville area during more than 20 years of practice. He understands how injuries can impact their lives and helps them overcome the challenges they face when seeking compensation. It’s one reason he continues to receive referrals from former clients.
We know how to hold negligent drivers accountable
Bicycle accidents are often caused by negligent drivers. Examples of negligence include speeding, operating recklessly and ignoring traffic signals. Some drivers who cause crashes were texting or talking on the phone. Others were under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Some have even fallen asleep at the wheel.
The force of impact from a car can leave bicyclists with serious injuries because they have very little protection. They may suffer broken bones or injuries to the head, neck or back. It may take months or even longer or them to fully recover. Some bicyclists are left with a permanent disability and their lives are forever changed.
It seems like these cases should be straightforward. A negligent driver hit your bicycle. You file an insurance claim. The insurance company pays for your medical expenses and provides you with fair compensation. The reality is that these cases are always much more complicated.
What often happens is that the driver may deny doing anything wrong and refuses to accept responsibility. The driver may even blame you for what happened – for example, by trying to argue that you crossed the street against the light.
Insurance companies are supposed to help the injured, but the truth is they will try to pay you as little as possible. They may argue that your injuries aren’t really that bad or that you already had an injury even before the accident. Another tactic they use to minimize compensation is offering a settlement that falls far short of covering the damages you suffered.
