Bicycle Accidents

We all know the intent for use of roads is for them to be shared. This includes bicycles. But it’s not unusual for drivers of cars to forget that, which leads to many bicycle accidents. The Jacobo Law Firm, PLLC doesn’t agree that this is something you should have to worry about every time you hear an approaching car. The reality is that bicycle riders have no protection at all, other than the clothes and helmet they wear. That’s not a lot. They don’t have a metal enclosure around them, no air bags, no roof. Bikes just don’t do well in accidents against a multi-thousand pound car.

Manny A. Jacobo will work tirelessly to represent you in your bicycle accident, to get you the support and care you need in your claim. And that is exactly what you need when you pursue a personal injury claim as a result of a bicycle accident. It’s about covering medical bills and lost compensation because you can’t work. We don’t take that challenge lightly, we are here to ensure you get what you need to make your life as whole again as it can be made.

The Jacobo Law Firm, PLLC also knows that accidents can happen anywhere, but experience shows us that there are certain events that more often than not lead to an accident. These are things like a vehicle turning directly into your path from the opposite direction, turning into your path from the same direction, getting rear ended because they are travelling too fast and don’t have time to stop once they see you, or opening a door in your path. These are the most frequent causes.

So Manny A. Jacobo often gets the question, what can I do to protect myself? Well, there are a number of things! Try wearing Lycra shorts. Seems simple, but there is a very good reason that they are so brightly colored, so that motorists can see you. And wear as much reflective clothing as you can. Then, always stay alert of conditions around you, keep your senses on the edge and don’t wear headphones which will distract you from what’s around you. Finally, put a headlight on and use it at night and day (preferably it will have a strobe feature for day use).

The Jacobo Law Firm, PLLC will represent you in your case on a contingency fee basis, meaning you don’t pay us unless we win your case. If your injuries prevent you from being able to come to our office to develop your case, we can come to your location.

While these are great recommendations, the Jacobo Law Firm, PLLC knows one thing, bicycle accidents will continue to happen.
