Bicyclist Accidents


Advocating on Behalf of Bicyclist Accident Victims in Oregon and Washington

The Pacific Northwest is known as one of the most bike-friendly regions in the country. Whether you use a bicycle to commute to the office every day or you enjoy taking a scenic and leisurely ride on the weekend, biking is a wonderful way to take in the lush scenery and exercise outdoors. Although many cities like Portland and Vancouver have implemented designated biking paths and other protections to keep bicyclists safe on the road, distracted or negligent drivers may fail to notice a cyclist and collide with them. Bicycle accident injuries can be catastrophic or even fatal, as the cyclist does not have the same protections as someone traveling in a motor vehicle. If you have suffered injuries as a cyclist and need help collecting the compensation you deserve, the experienced legal team at Henderson Taylor Law Firm PLLC is ready to assist you. We are committed to helping our clients recover the compensation they’re owed so they can start to rebuild their lives after the accident. You can trust that we will listen carefully to your needs and goals to make sure we compile the most substantial possible claim to maximize your settlement offer. We invite you to call our office as soon as possible so we can start working on your case.

Taking Action Against Negligent and Distracted Drivers

As more drivers are engaging in unsafe practices behind the wheel, such as checking their phones or texting while the car is in motion, they are failing to recognize that they share the road with others. Cyclists and pedestrians are much more vulnerable without the durable protection of a motorized vehicle, and other drivers need to take every precaution to keep their fellow travelers safe. Whether you were struck by a driver who changed lanes without seeing you or by someone who was texting instead of looking at the road, you have the right to pursue compensation that can go towards covering your costly medical expenses and lost wages. When you enlist the guidance of the dedicated and compassionate legal team at Henderson Taylor Law Firm, you’ll be able to focus on your physical, mental, and emotional recovery while we work hard to hold these negligent parties legally and financially accountable for their reckless actions.

A Strong Claim Starts at the Scene of the Accident

The moments after a collision between a bicyclist and a driver can be disorienting and chaotic. As a bicyclist, your top priority should be seeking medical attention as soon as possible. Even if you are not confident that your injuries are severe enough to justify a visit to the hospital, it’s essential to schedule a visit with your doctor within the next day or so for a comprehensive medical evaluation. The medical records established by your visit to the hospital or doctor’s office will play a critical role when you move forward with your personal injury claim. Once you’ve called for an ambulance or decided to visit your doctor instead, contact local law enforcement to report the accident. The responding officer will arrive at the scene to assess the details of the situation by interviewing the parties involved, talking to any witnesses who can provide insight into the events leading up to the crash, and investigating whether the driver was engaging in distracted behavior or was intoxicated at the time of the collision. The more details you can gather from the scene, the more evidence you will be able to provide when you start compiling your claim.
