When you strap on your helmet and pedal your bicycle through the many scenic parks and bike paths dotting Phoenix and Tucson, you have an expectation of safety. Unfortunately, things can go wrong. 30 people lost their lives in Arizona while riding their bicycle in 2013. Some of these were wrongful deaths that could have been avoided if motorists were paying more attention to the road, instead of their cellphones.
1,679 people were injured while riding their bike in Arizona in 2013. Again, many of these bike accidents were caused by careless drivers. There’s no excuse for a bicyclist being rundown by a careless driver, or forced to take an unsafe route due to poorly managed construction projects.

Arizona bicycle accident attorneys see it all. They see bikes and cars, trucks and bikes, and so much more. Even if the bicyclist is doing everything correctly, accidents happen and people are injured. There are several types of bicycle accidents that occur in Arizona and the rest of the world, and they are devastating to the people on the bike.
There are many things that might happen when you are on a bike, and it’s all about how you handle the situation on your own. Attorneys are familiar with what happens, how it works, and what the law entails in Arizona. You have the right to call an attorney and file a lawsuit against the driver who hits your bike or the bike of your loved one, but you must act fast.
You’re pedaling along, listening to your favorite music and carefully navigating a busy city sidewalk when suddenly – CRASH! It all happens so fast. You’re thrown from your bike to the ground, your bike frame is bent from the impact – back tire still spinning.
You feel groggy, almost in a daze. Your brain tries to process what has just happened as the adrenaline courses through your veins. Someone calls 911 and you’re rushed to the hospital.
If this scene sounds familiar, you might be wondering what to do next. Your cellphone is probably ringing as loved ones call to check-in. And then the phone call from the insurance comes in. You’re pressured, initially with kindness and a claim that the adjuster really cares about you, to accept a quick payout from the insurance company. As you factor in the cost of all the medical care you’re receiving, it’s hard to turn down.
STOP! Do not sign anything, or verbally accept any offer of compensation until you’ve spoken with an experienced bicycle accident attorney that understands the nuances of Arizona personal injury law.
You may be entitled to additional compensation from the party responsible for your bike accident. If you sign on the dotted line before learning of your legal rights, you will lose the right to go after the party that caused your accident.
When you call Zanes Law, our team will get to work gathering witness statements, collecting medical records and building a fact-based accounting of the accident. Then we’ll enter negotiations with the insurance company – you don’t have to worry about handling their high-pressure phone calls anymore. And there’s zero up-front cost to engaging our team to fight hard for you.
