The number of people riding bicycles is increasing steadily due to growing awareness of the environment and rising fuel costs.

Those who ride bicycles are no match for cars, trucks and other vehicles. Motorists are often distracted, not paying close attention to pedestrians and others who are not in cars. They may not be aware of the rights of bicyclists. A motorist may simply disregard the fact that you have rights in their haste to get to their destination. A compassionate Arizona bicycle accident lawyer will work aggressively to secure justice on your behalf, doing whatever it takes to obtain full compensation from those who have wronged you.
More than half of accidents involving bicycles take place on major roadways according to the DOT (U.S. Department of Transportation). Stopping, making a turn and merging with traffic are all risky for cyclists; when a car or truck strikes you, the speed and sheer weight of the vehicle can result in serious or even fatal injuries. Our Arizona bicycle accident lawyers work aggressively, taking those drivers who are negligent to the task.
Bicycle accidents can leave victims with serious and even life-threatening injuries. Head and brain trauma, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, lacerations, and fractures are some of the common injuries associated with bicycle accidents. Our skilled Arizona bicycle accident attorneys realize that the costs associated with these accidents can be almost insurmountable. Medical costs, lost wages, rehabilitation or physical therapy, emotional trauma - we feel that those who are responsible for your injuries should be held accountable.
Unfortunately, many who ride bicycles receive unfair treatment in the courtroom; the blame is often placed on the cyclist, even when it was not your fault. A motorist may claim that they did not see you. It is imperative that you consult with a reputable Arizona bicycle accident attorney as soon as you have received medical treatment so that your rights may be protected and an effective legal strategy formed. At Thomas C. Wilmer, P.C. our Arizona injury lawyers are dedicated to seeking the justice you deserve. Contact us today for a consultation regarding your claim.
