There is a common misconception among many individuals that bicyclists don't carry the same rights as a motor vehicle on the road. This is a dangerous assumption that has led to numerous bicyclists receiving serious injuries at the fault of a negligent or angry driver. Bicyclists hold every right that a motor vehicle does, and in the event that you are injured due to a negligent driver, Halperin Law Center can provide the firm legal representation you need. Our goal is to ensure that we are able to hold the liable party responsible and deliver you fair compensation.
An unexpected injury can be traumatic in and of itself, but having to work through the legal process only serves to make a tough situation all the more painful. That's why our Richmond bicycle accident lawyers work hard to guide you through the proceedings with ease and confidence, ensuring that our sound legal counsel protects your rights.
How Can I Legally Protect Myself?
The road can be a very dangerous place, especially for bicyclists. Although both share the same rights, many drivers become frustrated with bicyclists, while others are simply unaware of their rights on the road. Both of these scenarios carry serious, even deadly, consequences. Being struck by a motor vehicle while on a bicycle dramatically increases the chance for serious injury.
If you have received such an injury in the Richmond or Glen Allen area, you need the counsel of Halperin Law Center. Our Richmond bicycle accident lawyers have the legal prowess to break down your situation and form a comprehensive case that protects your rights on the road and yields necessary compensation for your injury.
