KNOXVILLE BICYCLE ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS

Drivers are expected to share the road with bicyclists and follow the law. Bicyclists (aka cyclists) are also required to follow their legal obligations on the road. When cars cross into the path of a cyclist, or are not paying attention to a bicycle rider who is on the road, a devastating often fatal collision can occur. Sometimes a bicyclist can strike a pedestrian sometimes resulting in death or serious brain or other injury. If you or someone you love has been injured in a Bicycle accident, Ellis & Ellis Law, P.C., is here to help you understand and assert your legal rights.

Our local family firm is committed to helping bicyclists and their families face the aftermath of a serious bicycle accident. We work tirelessly to see that you get the compensation you deserve for the injuries you suffered. Our motor vehicle accident lawyers focus on handling the legal details of your bike accident case so you can concentrate on your health and healing.

MOTORISTS BREAKING THE LAW

When someone breaks the law, other motorists, pedestrians and bikers are put at risk. Failure to yield to bicycles and failure to stop for bikers in crosswalks are just two of the common traffic violations that can lead to injuries. When bicyclists are following the bike laws, they are working to keep themselves as safe as possible. Drivers need to file suit or be held liable for the catastrophic consequences, in civil court as well as in criminal court, if they violated the law.

HIT-AND-RUNS

When a motorist hits a biker and leaves the scene of an accident, the injured biker may be wondering what to do. If the negligent driver cannot be located, your own personal auto insurance policy may cover your injuries and losses. Uninsured/underinsured (under-insured) motorist (UM/UIM) coverage is designed to help you in the event that another insurance company cannot be located or cannot cover the amount of the damages. This type of policy can often be applied in situations involving hit-and-run accidents.
