If you file a personal injury claim because you were injured in a bicycle accident, a number of factors must be considered. Is there evidence that the other person was at fault? Were you partly responsible for your injuries in any way? Did you wear a helmet? If the accident happened after dark, were you using lights? Did you have a pre-existing condition or injury? Are you unable to work due to your injuries, and if so, for how long? A good personal injury lawyer will need to consider these questions in order to protect your rights and fight for your compensation.
