With any accident, there are a number of factors that can make the process of investigating the situation tricky. Bicycle accidents are no exception to this, as they can lead to numerous complications, both physical and legal, making them challenging to unravel and address fairly. The team at Tiemann Law Firm is experienced when it comes to achieving optimal results in bike accident cases and has advocated for bicycle victims many times, successfully recovering the maximum damages. Below, they’ve outlined a few reasons why hiring a lawyer is your best bet:

  • The Physical Repercussions
    • Cyclists are inherently vulnerable, lacking the protective structure of a car. Even with helmets and safety gear, they’re at significant risk in collisions.
    • Bike accident injuries can range from minor cuts and bruises to severe trauma such as broken bones, head injuries, spinal cord damage, and internal organ damage.
    • While injuries may not always be immediately apparent, it’s crucial to seek medical attention right away, as this will not only get you on the road to recovery, but the medical record will help build your case.
  • Legal and Insurance Challenges
    • Oftentimes, drivers will try to shift blame onto the bicyclist and say he or she was not following the rules of the road.
    • Insurance companies may dispute claims or delay compensation for medical expenses, property damage, and lost wages.
    • Varying laws and regulations between jurisdictions add additional complexity, making the advice and guidance from a lawyer crucial.
  • Additional Complicating Factors
    • Many bike accidents occur at intersections, where multiple streams of traffic intersect, increasing the likelihood of collisions and complicating fault determination.
    • Cyclists are often less visible to motorists, especially in low-light conditions or when obscured by larger vehicles. Lack of awareness or distracted driving can significantly heighten the risk of accidents.
    • Inadequate bike lanes, poorly maintained roads, and lack of cyclist-friendly infrastructure can make it difficult to determine fault.

Bike accidents are complicated occurrences that can lead to numerous consequences. That’s why you should have guidance and support along the way. If you or a loved one has been involved in a bicycle accident, Tiemann Law Firm can help.

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.
