Bicycle Safety Laws in Washington
Like other road users, Washington bicyclists must adhere to safety rules and regulations to protect themselves and others on the road. Although bicyclists have the same rights as vehicle drivers, they also have responsibilities to themselves and others. Failure to adhere to the rules may not only result in injury, but may also impact the amount of compensation that an injured bicyclist can recover if some fault is apportioned to them. A Redmond car accident lawyer can give you more insight regarding Washington’s road laws in order to avoid bicycle accidents.
Although there is no state law requiring helmet use, some cities and counties require helmet use and bicyclists must be aware of the helmet laws where they are riding.
How Can a Redmond Bicycle Accident Lawyer Help You?
In order to get compensation for your bicycle accident injury, you must prove the at-fault party’s negligence or wrongdoing, and establish a link between their actions and your damages. You must also suffer actual damages to claim compensation. A Redmond bicycle accident lawyer can help you in the following ways:
Gather evidence to support your claim
Engage experts to give expert testimony to support your claim
Assess and value your total damages
Negotiate a settlement with the insurance companies on your behalf
Take your case to court if we are unable to reach an adequate settlement
Our experienced Redmond bicycle accident attorneys can help you recover full and fair compensation for your bike accident injuries.
How Much Time Do I Have to Make a Bicycle Accident Personal Injury Claim?
In Washington state, the statute of limitation for taking action in a bicycle accident injury case is three years from the date of the accident that caused the injury. The more time your Redmond personal injury attorney has to investigate and prepare your case, the better your chances of getting full and fair compensation for your damages. You should speak with a Redmond bicycle accident attorney as soon as possible after the accident that caused your injury. Your attorney will assess your case and determine the viability of your legal claim.
