Largo Bicycle Accident Attorney
When a 4,000-plus pound car slams into a 20-plus pound bicycle, the outcome is usually tragic for the bicyclist. That’s especially true if, as is often the case, the rider is a small child. Thin bicycle helmets usually provide excellent protection from accidental falls. However, they can’t possibly protect riders from onrushing motor vehicles. Moreover, bicycle helmets subconsciously encourage drivers to take reckless chances, since they believe the victim’s collision injuries won’t be as serious.
Head injuries are only one of the serious injuries these victims sustain. Others include broken bones and internal injuries. The force of a collision often shatters bones, meaning doctors must use metal parts to reconstruct them. This also means that physical rehabilitation is much longer and more difficult. The same force causes internal organs to mash against one another. The resulting internal bleeding is hard to spot and even harder to stop.
A compassionate Largo bicycle accident attorney at The Reep Law Firm understands the intense pain and suffering these victims must endure. Many of our families have experienced similar tragedies. This understanding motivates us to work extra hard to obtain maximum compensation in these matters. We cannot instantly heal a broken body or spirit. No one can do that. However, we can give these families the resources they need to carry on with their lives.
Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer
Since money has no healing power, many people wonder why they should pursue legal action. Personal injury claims force people to accept responsibility for the mistakes they make. Florida would be an even better place to live if we all faced the music after we made mistakes.
Additionally, the insurance company cares nothing about accident victims, no matter what TV commercials imply. In fact, the insurance company almost immediately hires a gaggle of lawyers who look for legal loopholes and other ways to reduce or deny compensation. Insurance companies make money when they collect premiums and lose money when they pay claims. It really is that simple.
A Largo bicycle accident attorney stands up for your legal and financial rights. Frequently, attorneys settle these cases out of court and on victim-friendly terms. So, there’s no need for an emotional and uncertain courtroom showdown.
How to Find the Right Largo Personal Injury Lawyer
A simple Google search like “personal injury lawyer near me” produces about a zillion results. Any one of these lawyers could do a good-enough job of handling a bicycle accident claim. However, for accident victims, good enough isn’t good enough. To take on insurance company lawyers and obtain maximum compensation, it take the right combination of:
- Experience: The old saying is accurate in this context. There’s no substitute for experience. Most lawyer skills aren’t learned in law school. However, experience can also be deceptive. Your attorney should have substantial trial experience and be willing to stay with you until the end of the line.
- Accessibility: Many people understandably think they need a big law firm to take on a big insurance company. However, large law firms often over-delegate everyday work to non-lawyer assistants. Besides, passion for individual rights is a lot more important than resources.
- Dedication: Passion requires commitment. Personal injury should be more than a sideshow. Lawyers who only occasionally handle personal injury cases often miss important details. And, the lawyers who do the little things right usually produce the best results.
At The Reep Law Firm, our commitment to you extends beyond personal injury. We also handle other matters that are important to your family, like criminal defense and family law.
