Committed to Holding Negligent Drivers Financially Accountable
Riding bicycles is an activity that many of us enjoy. Unfortunately, bikes offer little protection for the rider, even when a helmet and all proper safety gear are used. The smallest car is capable of permanently maiming, disfiguring, or killing a bicyclist in very low speed collisions. Bicycles are significantly less visible than cars. However, cyclists have all of the same rights to travel on the roadways of West Virginia as vehicles, and motorists are responsible for being aware of their surroundings. Frequently, we witness the motor vehicle operator attempt to shift blame to the bicyclist, regardless of who was actually at fault. Our law firm is committed to holding negligent drivers, as well as their insurance companies, fully accountable for your financial, property, and emotional damages.
Money for Your Bicycle Accident Injuries and Financial Losses
A HANDS-ON APPROACH TO EVERY CASE
PROTECTING WEST VIRGINIA’S INJURED SINCE 1952
Drivers in bicycle-automobile accidents tend to be deemed at-fault when the motorist fails to yield to a bicycle at an intersection, when a bicyclist is rear-ended, clipped when passed by the motorist, or when a vehicle operator strikes a bicyclist riding within a designated bike lane. There are many other cases when the motorist is at fault. Our personal injury legal team stands by you throughout your entire case. We will not let you be intimidated. You will deal with your attorney at all times, not an inexperienced paralegal. In addition, Angotti & Straface maintains a full-time administrative and research staff to assist with gathering evidence and preparing your claim.
