Little Rock Bicycle Accident Lawyers

Injury Lawyers Serving the Little Rock Area

Bicyclists face many dangers when they travel on roads congested with cars, trucks, and other motor vehicles. Part of the danger stems from the fact that bicycles do not offer the protection and safety features that most motor vehicles offer, and they are less visible than motor vehicles, which can lead to unnecessary bicycle accidents. Another part of the danger comes from a general lack of protection for bicyclists under the laws of many states, including Arkansas. If you have been injured by a motor vehicle while riding a bicycle in Little Rock or the surrounding area, call Nahon, Saharovich & Trotz today to speak with one of our experienced Little Rock bicycle accident attorneys. Our attorneys are dedicated to serving the interests of accident victims. Over the past 30 years, that dedication has allowed us to obtain over $1 billion in recovery for our personal injury clients.

Establishing Your Claims in a Bicycle Accident Case

In order for a bicyclist to obtain recovery for bodily injuries, the cyclist generally must show that the other party involved in the accident was negligent in causing the cyclist’s injuries. This requires the bicyclist to establish the legal elements of negligence: duty, breach, causation, and damages. If the injured bicyclist can establish those elements, then they will likely be able to recover damages caused by the collision. Depending on the injuries involved, those damages can include lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, future medical bills, future lost wages, and others. If the bicyclist suffered fatal injuries, damages such as funeral expenses and loss of consortium may be available in a wrongful death case.

Unfortunately for those who travel on bicycles in Arkansas, there are not many Arkansas safety laws that are specifically designed to protect bicyclists. In fact, Arkansas was at one point listed dead last in the League of American Bicyclists’ ranking of “bicycle friendly states.” There are, however, certain Arkansas laws that do protect bicyclists. For example, Ark. Code Ann. § 27-51-311 requires that a motor vehicle passing a bicyclist do so at a distance of not less than three feet. If a cyclist is able to prove that the driver who injured him or her violated that law, such as by introducing eyewitness testimony, it is likely that the cyclist can recover economic and non-economic damages caused by the defendant’s failure to follow the safety law. In any case, consulting with a Little Rock personal injury attorney experienced in bicycle accident cases will provide you with a detailed understanding about your legal rights and the options available for your situation.
