Who is Responsible for My Bicycle Accident Claim?
Bicycle accidents can have any number of causes, but there are only a few potential liable parties that can be brought to justice via means of a personal injury claim.
This is by far the greatest cause of bicycle accidents in Pennsylvania. Motorists have a duty to drive safely and be aware of other drivers and pedestrians. Unfortunately, many drivers operate their vehicles while they are distracted, under the influence, or in another negligent manner. If you were hit by a motorist while riding your bicycle, they are most likely to blame for your accident.
Negligent Property Owners
Bicycle accidents do not always involve another vehicle. Sometimes a bicyclist can be harmed because the premises they were riding on was not safe. The owner or manager of a property, whether it’s public or private, has a responsibility to keep visitors safe. If a property owner was aware of an unsafe condition or should have been aware of it, they may be held responsible for the bicyclist’s injuries.
Some bicycle accidents occur because of defective or dangerous roadways. In Harrisburg, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and the Office of the City Engineer are two government entities that are responsible for maintaining public roads and highways. Unfortunately, it is not easy to bring a lawsuit against the government. Your case must meet very strict criteria in order to sue a government entity. It is usually more prudent to pursue legal action against another liable party; however, our firm will explore all possible avenues for securing the compensation you deserve.
When Should I Contact a Bicycle Accident Attorney in Harrisburg?
The sooner you contact an attorney after a bicycle accident, the better your chances of recovering the compensation you deserve. It’s essential that you and your attorney begin collecting evidence as soon as possible after your accident. That includes police reports, medical records, witness testimony, and more.
Additionally, all personal injury cases in Pennsylvania have a statute of limitations of two years. That means you must file your intent to sue a liable party within two years of when the accident occurred. For lawsuits against a government entity, you must submit your notice of intent within 6 months.
*Clients are not liable for fees or expenses if no recovery is made. Past success is no guarantee of future results. Financial recovery via settlement or court verdict constitutes a win.
