The Law Firm of Merritt & Merritt

Bicycle/Bike Accidents

At any given daylight moment across America approximately 660,000 drivers are using cell phones or manipulating electronic devices while driving; a number that has held steady since 2010. Distracted drivers account for nearly all bicycle accidents.

If you have been hurt in a bicycle accident, call the Merritt & Merritt Law Firm. Our bicycle accident attorneys have worked many bike accident cases. We have represented injured bicycle clients hit by distracted drivers who were texting and drivers that were under the influence (DUI). Regardless of the challenges presented by your case, our attorneys will be aggressive in getting you compensation for your injuries.

We understand that compensation does not erase the accident, but it does bring comfort to know that your medical bills along with any other expenses incurred from the accident are paid and that justice was attained.

Distracted driving is an activity that could divert a person's attention away from the primary task of driving. All distractions endanger driver, passenger, and bystander safety. These types of distractions include:

  • Texting
  • Using a cell phone or Smartphone
  • Eating and drinking
  • Talking to passengers
  • Grooming
  • Reading, including maps
  • Using a navigation system
  • Watching a video
  • Adjusting a radio, CD player, or MP3 player

Our bike accident attorneys can visit you at your home, at the hospital, or at the accident scene.  We are committed to assisting our clients through the entire process:  from beginning to end.  If you have questions or need further assistance, please feel free to contact us at 1-800-738-WE-WIN. Remember, the earlier you contact us, the quicker we can get started on your case which usually renders a high settlement or verdict.
