Tempe Bicycle Injury Attorney

Tempe Bicycle Injury Attorney

Cycling is a popular form of exercise and transportation in Tempe, Arizona. While it is a fun and healthy activity, it also comes with risks, especially when sharing the road with motor vehicles. If you’ve incurred injuries in a bicycle accident in Tempe, you may face significant medical bills, lost income, and other damages. You need a qualified Tempe bicycle injury attorney to assist you with the legal process. 

At The Sorenson Law Firm, we believe injured cyclists deserve strong legal representation, and we are committed to aiding our clients get the compensation they deserve.

    Causes of Bicycle Accidents

    According to Injury Facts, preventable deaths from bicycle accidents rose by 16% in 2020 and 44% in the last decade ( 873 in 2011 to 1,260 in 2020). The following are the common reasons behind the incidences:

    • People view cycling as a less serious mode of transportation compared to driving, leading them to place less emphasis on safety for cyclists.
    • Driver errors such as distracted driving and failure to give way
    • Lack of proper lighting and reflectors at night
    • Cycling against traffic
    • Poor road conditions

    Our experienced Tempe Bicycle Injury Attorney can gather the evidence needed to increase your chances of getting a reasonable settlement deal with the insurance company.

    Common Injuries Associated with Bicycle Accidents

    Unlike drivers and passengers in motor vehicles with the protection of seat belts, airbags, and the vehicle itself, cyclists are at a higher risk of sustaining severe injuries. The common injuries associated with bicycle accidents include:

    • Traumatic head injuries
    • Fractures (Wrist, collar, and ankle)
    • Soft tissue injuries (Muscles, ligaments, and tendons)
    • Spinal cord injuries
    • Road rash
    • Facial injuries

    At The Sorenson Law Firm, our lawyers have represented numerous clients injured in bicycle accidents, and we have secured favorable outcomes for them. We will work tirelessly to investigate the bicycle accident, gather enough evidence, and build a strong case on your behalf. Talk to us today, and allow us to help you prevail over your circumstances. 

    What to Do After a Bicycle Accident

    How you respond immediately after a bicycle accident can greatly affect your personal injury claim. Hence, you (if not severely injured) or someone close to you should take the following steps:

    1. Call 911 if you’ve sustained injuries, and the police to create an official accident report.
    2. Exchange contact and insurance information with the drivers involved in the accident. 
    3. Gather contact information from the witnesses to the accident.
    4. Take photos of the accident scene. This step is helpful when filing an insurance claim or working with a Tempe personal injury attorney.
    5. Contact a Tempe bicycle injury attorney to help you navigate the legal process.
    6. Notify your insurance company without delay.

    At The Sorenson Law Firm, we often advise our clients against accepting any offer the drivers involved make without a Tempe bicycle injury attorney present. Once you accept that offer, you significantly reduce your chances of getting a better deal with the insurance claim.

    Let me start off by saying that if your looking for someone who is kind thoughtful professional down to earth easy to communicate with & is very pro active in how they do business & is 100% invested in you & getting the best outcome for whatever your situation may be than I would recommend jonny & rowanna. This was my first time that I needed to find a lawyer who could assist me with my situation. What stood out to me was at the end of our zoom meeting I remember saying to both jonny & rowann that I'm not interested in moving forward because I was more at fault than the lady who hit me so in my mind I'm thinking we'll this guy probably isn't going to want to take my case because it seemed like it would be an uphill battle, & he responded by letting me know that he would like to take my case & see what he could do & bottom line is that you"ll either have more than what you have now or you"ll be in the same situation. So I thought about it for a minute & decided to trust them to see what happens. So from that day on all the way til the case was resolved I've had a great experience with them. Rowanna explained everything to me in a way that was not complicated & always asked me that if had any questions or if I didn't understand she would ask. They are easy to talk with & made me feel like I was important & trying to get the best outcome for me. When my case was complete I was so grateful & appreciated for what they were able to do for me. Johnny & Rowanna are the best & will always have & want the best for you I know because they did that for me. Thanks again CHRISTOPHER

    I worked with The Sorenson Law firm for about 5 months resolving a personal injury claim that occurred during a car accident I was in and I couldn't have been more happy with results. The firm was always responsive, quick to answer any questions I had and I could tell they had my best interest in mind. I would recommend The Sorenson Law Firm to anyone that needs a personal injury lawyer, they're great!

    I cannot recommend the Sorenson Law Firm enough. After an accident, I was in a situation where I knew very little about my options. I reached out to my community for advice and Johnny’s wife was quick to put me in contact with him to get me some help. The insurance company we were dealing with was not the easiest, but Johnny and his team did a wonderful job at recovering my losses and fighting for me. Johnny and his team kept me well informed and educated throughout the process, which meant a lot as I was very naïve and knew very little going into this process. I feel fortunate to have crossed paths with this wonderful team, and if life ever throws another curve ball, I’ll be sure to use the Sorenson Law Firm again!!!

    Sorenson Law Firm made a tough situation less burdensome for me and my family. Going through the lost of a loved one and having to instill trust in people you don't know is hard. But Johnny Sorenson and his associates were very caring, professional, informative and timely when it came to our case. I would recommend The Sorenson Law Firm to anyone that needs lawyers that actually care about their clients and not just a paycheck. I'm writing this as a thank you to their company and to the team that worked on our case. Thank you!
