Get Your Recovery In Gear After A Bicycle Accident
The popularity of bicycle transportation continues to grow. Like many other cities, Columbus has dedicated lanes for bicycle traffic. Unfortunately, as bicycle traffic has increased, so has the number of injuries and fatal accidents.
The human body is no match for the body of a car, truck or bus. Serious injuries are common. Broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and head, back and neck injuries are often caused by bicycle accidents. Even when a bicyclist is wearing a helmet, a blow to the head often means there will be a painful neck injury. Fatalities are also on the rise.

- Medical expenses
- Lost wage replacement
- Acknowledgment of pain and suffering
If you or a loved one suffered injuries in a bicycle accident in or near Columbus, Ohio, we are prepared at Abramson & O'Connell, LLC, to assist you in bringing a claim. We can help you bring a wrongful death claim against negligent parties who caused the crash.
Liability And Complications After A Bike Crash
Bicycle crashes happen on the streets and roads, as well as in parking lots, off-road recreational areas, and other places where both cars and bicycles travel. Car drivers’ disregard for bicyclists’ right of way is sometimes a factor that leads to crashes.
Getting you the compensation you are eligible for will include proving who caused your bicycle accident. Our law firm has handled cases with sets of facts like these:
- A car, truck or bus struck a bicycle in the context of a clear traffic violation: The vehicle did not stop at a stop sign, did not respect a bicycle lane or was speeding.
- A car, truck or bus struck a bicycle and the motorist claimed he or she did not see the bicyclist.
- A vehicle driven by an uninsured or underinsured motorist struck a bicycle.
