Cyclists And Pedestrians Deserve Compensation For Injuries
Seattle is known as one of the best cities in the United States for bicyclists. Pedestrians also enjoy the city’s walking accessibility. However, these perks come with a downside: Seattle also has a high rate of accidents involving bicycles and pedestrians.
If you survived a cycling or pedestrian accident, you know firsthand that the injuries from these accidents can lead to significant medical bills and other damages. At Elk & Elk in Seattle, we can help you seek compensation for damages including:
- Hospital stays
- Lost wages
- Medical treatment
- Bicycle repairs
- Pain and suffering
Negligent motorists or other parties deserve to be held accountable for injuring you. By working with 1-844-355-9378, you can seek compensation while holding them responsible for their actions.
Insurance Companies Are Not Your Friends
After an injury, your first instinct is probably to contact your insurance provider and discuss the accident. This is a major mistake. Insurance companies do not want to pay the full amount that you deserve for your damages. Their motivation is to protect their own profits.
Before you contact an insurer, always contact a law firm like Elk & Elk. To recover the maximum compensation available to you, you need an attorney advocating for your rights against big insurance companies.
Your Injuries May Not Appear Right Away
Because automobiles are much larger and heavier than bicycles, the injuries they inflict can be catastrophic. However, your injuries may not manifest immediately after the accident. Severe injuries can take weeks — or months — to appear. Even if your accident was several months ago, you may still be entitled to receive compensation for the damages caused by your injuries.
