Bicycle Accident Attorneys
Were You Injured in a Bicycle Accident?
Even though it's a law in Pennsylvania, not all motorists "share the road" with bicycle riders. All too often, that leads to the worst-case scenario: Bicycle crashes that injure, or even kill.

Who Pays the Medical Bills From my Bicycle Accident?
Since 1982, our law firm has helped thousands of clients who were seriously injured in bicycle accidents, and we understand how quickly medical bills can pile up following a crash. One of the first questions that injury victims ask us after a bicycle accident when they call our office is, "Who will pay for my medical bills?"
Unfortunately, there is no quick and easy answer. Who's liable for your medical bills is determined by many factors, including the nature of your accident, and insurance coverage—both yours, as well as the policy of the person who caused the accident.
If You Have Car Insurance...
If you were injured while riding your bicycle, your Pennsylvania auto insurance is the first line of financial defense following an accident, covering your medical bills. However, the amount of coverage you have largely depends on whether you have a full-tort or limited-tort policy.
If You Do NOT Have Car Insurance...
If you've been injured in a bicycle accident and you do not drive, there are several other insurance scenarios that could play out:
- If you live with a relative who owns a car and has car insurance, you may be covered under their policy.
- If you have a personal health insurance policy, or one offered through your employer, your medical bills could be covered under that policy.
- You may be able to file a claim against the driver's insurance company.
Dealing With Insurance Companies
No matter what your insurance coverage, we can't stress enough: Don't say anything to, or sign anything from, an insurance company—yours or their's—before you seek the advice of an attorney.
When it comes to legal claims for bicycle crashes, there are no guarantees—even when it's clear that someone else is at fault. The driver who hit you could be uninsured or underinsured, or the insurance company may pressure you into a low-ball settlement.

What is Your Case Worth?
Bicycle accident injury victims often ask us: What is my case worth?
We wish it was an easy question to answer. But the truth is, each bicycle accident injury case is unique. It's impossible for us to tell you what your case could be worth without first talking to you about the details related to your bike accident.
When it comes to how much money your case could be worth, there are many factors at play. When you call us for your free case review, our attorneys will ask you many questions related to your accident. They include:
- What are your injuries? What are your current—and future—medical needs?
- Were you unable to work because of your injuries? If so, do you have lost wages?
- Did your accident cause permanent damage to your health? Scarring?
- What were the circumstances leading to your accident? Were there any witnesses?
After discussing your accident, our legal team will tell you if we think you have a case, and walk you through the next steps.
