Bicyclists and pedestrians are offered very little protection on the roads, yet they have virtually the same rights as all other road users. As long as you were obeying slow-moving vehicle laws, you likely have a strong case for maximum compensation if you were struck, run off the road or otherwise injured by a negligent driver.
Motorists have a duty to watch for bicyclists and pedestrians on all roads, and they are obligated to yield in nearly every situation.
Victims of bike accidents are often children who do not realize the full dangers of crossing streets or biking in road shoulders. It is tragic when anyone is seriously hurt because of negligence, but especially so when it is a child.
Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable and Securing Maximum Compensation
Our hearts go out to victims of bicycle accidents. We strive to provide victims in West Tennessee and their families with the best possible legal care and help in finding the best available medical care. Accident injuries ranging from broken bones to concussions to paralysis can have life-altering effects.
You deserve full and fair compensation established from the full value of your case in collaboration with accident reconstruction, medical and life-planning experts. Our firm in Bartlett will guide you through the legal process, keep you fully informed and handle all communications with opposing parties.
In stark opposition to an insurance company’s initial, less than adequate compensation offer, we aggressively pursue maximum compensation on your behalf, including:
- Medical expenses
- Bike damage
- Lost wages and reduced income
- Pain and suffering (emotional distress)
- Long-term costs such as additional surgeries and home care
- Wrongful death benefits, if you have lost a loved one

What if You Were Injured in a Hit-and-Run Accident on Your Bike?
Such tragedy often occurs in bike accident cases. Fortunately, there are alternative sources of compensation through your own uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) insurance coverage, personal injury protection (PIP) insurance coverage, Med-Pay and health insurance.
At The Law Offices of Jeffrey Jones, we will help you build a strong case to secure deserved compensation from all possible sources.
