Bicycling is a beloved hobby of many, as well as a convenient, eco-friendly way to get around St. Louis. While there is no inherent danger to bicycling, the presence of inattentive, negligent drivers on the road creates a significant danger to cyclists. When these careless drivers strike cyclists with their vehicles or cause a bicycle accident in some other capacity, such as by running a cyclist off the road, the injured cyclist has the right to take legal action.

Who Can File a Bicycle Accident Lawsuit in St. Louis?
Per law, injured cyclists have the right to file suit if they can prove the following elements of their case:
- The other party owed them a standard of care and violated this standard by acting negligently;
- The other party’s negligence led to an accident;
- The accident caused injury to the cyclist and, therefore, damages to accumulate.
An attorney can assist you in proving these elements of your case. It is expected that the at-fault party’s insurance agent will attempt to deny you of your right to compensation, either by offering you a lowball settlement amount or by making it look as though you are at fault for your own injuries. They may even claim that you were not truly injured. Although these claims may be ridiculous, they are skilled in getting away with such false claims – it is their job. Fortunately, it is the job of an attorney to help you.
How a Bicycle Accident Attorney Can Help
In addition to protecting you from an insurance company’s predatory tactics, an attorney can help you investigate the accident, prove your injury, calculate the amount of damages incurred, and ensure that you do not have to settle for less compensation than you deserve.
We understand that financial compensation cannot make up for the harm brought upon you. That does not mean, however, that the negligent party should be able to shirk responsibility and leave you in debt. You deserve to be compensated; in fact, it is your legal right.
Depending on your case, you could be compensated for damages including:
- Medical and hospital bills;
- Cost of disability accommodations;
- Pain and suffering, physical and mental;
- Lost wages, past and future;
- Missed time from work and/or school;
- Loss of quality of life;
- Loss of enjoyment of life;
- And more.
