Get Experienced Utah Bicycle Accident Attorneys
If you have been hurt in a bicycle accident in Utah, it is important to speak with an experienced Utah personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. When a car or truck weighing thousands of pounds hits a bicyclist, the injuries can be severe and life-altering. The insurance companies will add to the frustration of the situation. Insurance companies will try to characterize the bicyclist as careless in order to minimize their payout or avoid paying altogether. However, in our experience, many bicycle accidents are caused by careless or distracted drivers, and sometimes bicycle crashes are even caused by drivers who are angry at having to share the roads with cyclists.
Being involved in a bicycle accident can be a very frightening experience, especially if you are the one on the bike. It can be difficult to remain calm, but what happens next can affect what you are able to recover for subsequent damages or injuries.

Bicycle Accident Investigation
We have investigated countless bicycle accidents for our clients, and we know what to look for to build a strong case. Our legal team will help with analyzing the crash scene, taking photographs, and collecting evidence. In order to ensure the best outcome for your case, it is crucial that you try to preserve all evidence from the accident. Any damaged property should remain in the same state it was immediately following the crash. In order to achieve this, do not have anything fixed. Also, be sure to take as many pictures as possible. This will help to accurately exhibit the state of injuries and damages at the scene of the accident.
Insurance Company Negotiation
It is our recommendation that you not even speak with the insurance company before consulting an attorney. Your conversations could be taken and used against you at a later date. Insurance companies are supposed to take care of victims in need, but they often do everything in their power to avoid their responsibilities. The insurance adjuster may give you a low settlement offer in order to quickly close the case, but it may not be enough to cover your accident and related expenses. Our team will hold the insurance company accountable and make sure you get fair compensation.
Legal Paperwork Completion
All of the legal paperwork that goes along with a bicycle accident can be complex and overwhelming. After you‘ve been through such a traumatic experience, filling out stacks of paperwork is the last thing you want to deal with, so our attorneys will handle the paperwork for you. It is more important for you to focus on recovering from the accident, so that you can get back to what matters most – getting your life back on track.
