He was struck by a Volkswagen Jetta and was rushed to the hospital.

If you search bicyclist accidents online, you’ll find an alarming number of cases. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 417,485 bicyclists were injured in 2019. This is an alarming number and shows that bicycle accidents are a serious problem.
The majority of bicycle accidents in the US take place in Florida, California, New York, and Colorado.
It is clear that bicycle riders face a unique threat that other vehicle drivers don’t.
A bicyclist is more vulnerable than other motor vehicle drivers on the road or street, meaning that when they are hit, it often has serious consequences.
This is why you need to hire a legal advocate if you or a family member have been involved in a bicycle accident.
A lawyer can guide you through the process by filing a claim with the police, conducting background checks, getting witness testimonies, and negotiating with insurance providers.
Experienced attorneys will review all the factors relating to the crash, not only the police report, which will increase the victim’s chance of obtaining the maximum compensation.
Depending on the situation, you may be entitled to file a personal injury claim with the authorities. The same applies to Jerimiah Green.
If a loved one has been injured or killed in a bicyclist accident, you may be entitled to the following damages:
The legal process can be extremely overwhelming, which is why it’s crucial to have a compassionate and experienced lawyer in your corner who will fight tirelessly to protect your rights.
You need a competent, experienced, and caring lawyer in your corner who will ensure that you get the compensation you’re entitled to.
Imagine waking up on a sunny Friday morning not knowing that a car or other vehicle would crash into you at the quiet intersection on your street while riding your bike.
