Bicycle Accident Caused by a Pothole | Do I Have a Claim?
If you’re riding a bicycle and you happen to be injured by a pothole or poorly maintained road, you may have a claim. It may also have a shorter time period to bring that claim because it’s against the city, state, or county, and you still have to prove that they did something wrong and that they were at fault.
Choosing a Bicycle Accident Attorney
One of the most popular sports in Southern Utah is mountain biking. If you’ve been injured in a bicycle accident, it’s important for you to hire the right attorney. You may be asking, “How do I do that?” One, find an attorney who’s got the experience in dealing with bicycle crashes. Second, get somebody who focuses on that area, and doesn’t just dabble in it. Third, get a trial attorney. They’re difficult cases and you have to prepare them from the beginning as if you were going to have to go to trial and let an insurance company know that you’re willing to go to trial, if that’s what you need to do.
