There are many hazards for bicyclists on Arizona streets and roads, including careless drivers, road hazards caused by improper maintenance, and even other bicyclists. There are also many potential sources of insurance coverage for a bicycle injury, including homeowner’s insurance and your uninsured/underinsured motorist auto coverage.

If you or a loved one have been injured in a bicycle accident, we invite you to call our office to schedule a free consultation with an experienced Oro Valley bicycle injury attorney. We can listen to the facts of your case, explain your legal options, and tenaciously advocate for the full compensation to which you and your family are rightfully entitled.

Can I Pursue Compensation For A Bicycle Injury If I Am Partially At Fault For My Accident?

Yes. In Arizona, you can still pursue compensation for a bicycle injury even if you are partially at fault for an accident, thanks to the state’s adoption of the pure comparative negligence rule. Under this legal principle, if a cyclist is found to be partially responsible for causing an accident, their eligibility to recover damages is not entirely barred. Instead, the compensation will be reduced by the percentage of their fault.

For example, if you are injured in a bicycle crash and are found to be 30% responsible for the accident, you can still recover damages. However, the total amount of compensation awarded will be reduced by 30%. So, if the total damages amount to $100,000, you would be eligible to receive $70,000 after the reduction for your share of the fault.

Determining fault in a bicycle accident can be complex, and the apportionment of fault can significantly affect the compensation you may receive. Seeking legal assistance can ensure that your rights are adequately protected. An experienced bicycle injury attorney can help assess the specifics of your case, advocate on your behalf, and work to maximize the compensation you receive, considering the details of the accident and the extent of the injuries. 

Our Bike Accident Injury Attorneys Know The Arizona Bicycling Laws And Understand The Mechanics Of Bicycle Collisions.

Single-bike accidents are often caused by phantom vehicles (vehicles that cause the crash but have no contact with the rider and drive off and/or flee the scene before they can be identified.)  Other causes include hazardous road conditions, and other dangers posed to bicyclists.

Construction zones also present dangerous situations for bicyclists. Lanes are often not clearly marked, road signs prevent obstacles, and holes in the road and changing road grades pose serious problems to bicyclists. If you were involved in a single-bike accident in a construction zone, you could be facing severe injuries.

We pursue compensation for people who were injured in single-bike collisions. These collisions require representation from an experienced cyclist attorney. There may have been no witnesses or no physical proof other than your injuries to show the negligence of another person or entity.  We effectively establish the credibility of our injured clients and vigorously pursue compensation.

If you were involved in a single bike/phantom crash, or to discuss your bicycle injury case in a free consultation with an experienced Tucson personal injury lawyer who understands cycling, please contact us today.
