Let Us Help You Get Back On Your Feet

Personal Attention For Your Bicycle Accident Claim

Riding your bicycle is a great way to get around in Post Falls, but it can also expose you to reckless and careless drivers. Getting hit by a car can leave you severely disabled, facing huge medical bills while you are unable to work. It’s unfortunately true that too many drivers fail to look out for bikes and do not respect riders’ right of way. The results of this disregard for bicyclist’s safety are often painful, debilitating or even fatal injuries.

With over 40 years of experience in Idaho personal injury, our attorney, Jim Bendell, can help you fight for compensation if you have been injured in a bike accident. Our firm, The Bendell Law Firm, PLLC, helps injured people in North Idaho confront insurance companies with proven strategies and personal service.

How A Car Can Harm Someone Riding A Bike

Even if you wear a helmet and pads, the impact of a multi-ton vehicle can cause serious physical harm. Common injuries include:

  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal injuries and paralysis
  • Crush injuries and amputations
  • Broken bones
  • Fatal injuries

Your accident could take away your independence and ability to work for months, years or possibly the rest of your life. Treatment can help, but years of surgery, doctor’s visits and physical therapy can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars — which most personal victims cannot afford. Instead, you can pursue compensation from the negligent driver and your auto insurance provider.

However, the process is not always easy. Insurance companies usually try to get out of paying what you are entitled to. The adjuster assigned to your claim could deny it based on a dubious excuse or offer an inadequate settlement amount, hoping you will feel forced to accept it. But with our attorney working for you, things will be different. Mr. Bendell’s decades of experience on both sides of the personal injury litigation process and concern for his clients’ well-being help him develop a strategy in your individual best interests. He knows you will have questions along the way and always responds promptly to your calls and emails.
