Bicycle Accident Cases in Tucson and Southern Arizona

Though Tucson provides great weather for bicyclists, coupled with an overall bike friendly environment, bicyclist safety is always of concern.  Biking can be very dangerous on our roadways.  Tucson’s back roads do not always accommodate bicyclists with dedicated lanes, and negligent drivers can inadvertently encroach these lanes and hit a bicyclist.  I personally saw a bicyclist get hit and killed while driving out to Sabino Canyon for a hiking trip.

Accidents often occur from a driver’s failure to yield at a cross walk, distracted driving with cell phones and texting, failure to stop at a light or stop sign, and sideswiping a bicyclist while turning at an intersection.  Unfortunately, these cases always involve severe injuries or wrongful death.

Serving Bicycle Accident Clients in Tucson

Bicyclist cases in Arizona are difficult and complex cases.  Our office has uniquely carved out a niche for taking a special interest in helping both pedestrian and bicyclist victims in recovering an appropriate settlement.  These types of cases take an acute appreciation of severe physical injuries and a complex understanding of dense medical records.  Because we handle medical malpractice cases, we have years of experience deciphering medical records and advancing medical-based claims.  We are very comfortable taking these cases and clients are very confident having retained us.  It creates a great client-lawyer relationship and it’s a priceless feeling to know you are in good hands. Contact our office today for a consultation.

Understanding Attorney Fees with Bicycle Accident Cases

There are no upfront attorney fees.  We work on a “contingency fee basis”, which means we collect our fee as a percentage of the settlement if we win the case.  Most, if not all, personal injury firms handle these types of cases on a contingency fee basis.  Uniquely, we offer a client guarantee that our fee will be discounted if necessary to ensure our firm never receives funds disproportionate to our client’s recovery.
