Bicyclists Can Suffer Life-Changing Injuries

Much like in a motorcycle accident, the rider of a bicycle stands to suffer serious injuries no matter the speed or severity of the collision. A bicyclist might be wearing a helmet and elbow pads, but there is not much more protective gear available. Likewise, the bike itself offers no protection in a vehicle collision. If you or a loved one was injured while riding a bicycle, it is wise to seek the guidance of a proven legal professional.

With offices in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Seattle, Washington, Cross Border Law is prepared to guide international clients through the legal process of monetary recovery. Handling personal injury cases from both sides of the Canada-United States border can become complex and frustrating. Our lawyers have the knowledge necessary to guide clients through the process no matter where the accident occurred.

Significant Injuries And Wrongful Death

When describing a bicycle accident in common parlance, "The cyclist will always lose." Due to the size difference, a collision with any type of motor vehicle can cause catastrophic injuries to the rider of a bicycle. Bicyclists often suffer traumatic brain injuries, broken bones and soft tissue injuries. In some situations, the rider might suffer a fatal injury. If you have lost a loved one, you might be entitled to recover monetary compensation through a wrongful death claim.
