Injury Attorneys Helping Victims of Bicycle Accidents in Boise
Riding a bicycle is a wonderful way to save on gas money and get some exercise. Unfortunately, not all motor vehicle drivers are watching the road carefully, and some simply don’t understand how to drive safely around bicycles. While it’s typically the driver’s fault, when a crash involving a bicycle and a driver occurs, the victim ends up being the cyclist. With offices in Boise & Twin Falls, the personal injury attorneys at Pedersen & Whitehead help Idaho bicycle accident victims recover compensation for their injuries from negligent and distracted drivers.
Victims may face costly bills after a bike accident
Victims of Idaho bicycling accidents can face steep medical costs as a result of their injuries, and they may be entitled to money damages related to their pain and suffering after an accident. As soon as possible after a bicycle accident, victims should consult with a skilled Idaho personal injury lawyer to find out whether they’re entitled to compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.
Idaho bicycle accidents can result in life-altering injuries
