Avondale Bike Accident Attorneys
It started out as a typical ride to work, school or home. But the next thing you knew, you were on the pavement, in pain and wondering how you ended up there. Moments later you were stuffed into the back of an ambulance or a friend's car and carted off to the nearest emergency room. It is now weeks later, you are still in significant pain, the hospital bills have begun to pile up and your insurance is refusing to help you with any future treatments. On top of all that, the person who caused your collision was able to walk away without a scratch or even a citation.
If you are like the many Avondale cyclists injured each year due to reckless and potentially negligent motorists, this story probably sounds all too familiar. You, like so many bicyclists before, are probably wondering:
- "Do I have any legal options?"
- "Should I contact an attorney?"
- "Can I get compensated for my injuries?"
At The Husband & Wife Law Team we can give you a resounding "YES" to all three of those questions. Make no mistake, you are the victim in this situation and as such you have the option and the right to pursue civil action against the at-fault party. Does this mean you will need an attorney? Yes. Will it undo the terrible pain they have put you and your family through? No. But a proper settlement, either in or out of court, can go a long way in alleviating some of the financial strains you may be facing at this time. You could very well collect awards on one or more of the following categories:
- Emergency medical bills
- Physical therapy
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of wages or employment
Keep in mind however, that the clock is ticking and has been since your crash. This is known as the statute of limitations and in Arizona you have a small window of opportunity in which to file your claim. If you miss the deadline, you lose your right to compensation from the at-fault party. So don't delay. Call The Husband & Wife Law Team today and let us help you get started on your road to recovery. We are a dedicated Avondale personal injury firm with over two decades of tireless and aggressive representation under our belt. If we take your case, you can rest assured we will not quit until you've received the compensation you deserve.

There are a number of steps you can take if you were hit by a car that can help your case substantially. Consider some of the following tips:
Seek medical attention – No matter how insignificant your injuries may seem, speaking with your doctor or emergency room physician can help immensely. Not only can they rule out any hidden injuries, they can provide a medical report for later use as evidence.
Collect evidence – We highly recommend taking as many photos and notes of the accident scene as possible. Even if you are physically unable to do so, have a friend or family member track down this information as soon after the collision as possible.
Bicycle accidents can leave riders with terrible injuries and serious pain. If you've been involved in a collision while riding and the fault lies squarely on another individual, contact The Husband & Wife Law Team today and let us review your case in a free consultation.
