Arizona Law Firm Exclusively Representing Injured Arizona Bicyclists

Bicyclists are entitled to share the road, but not all drivers respect those rights.

When a cyclist is injured in a collision with a car, they need a cyclist to represent them. The legal issues for bicyclists are unique and are not well understood by many lawyers. For example, many lawyers do not recognize that a cyclist’s automobile insurance coverage will provide protection even when using a bike and not an automobile.

Cyclists must also be wary of retaining a law firm that advertises extensively. Those firms are not focused on the personal service a cyclist needs. They often have paralegals and legal assistants handle every aspect of a case.

You will not see Bike Guardians on a television advertisement, a bus, or a billboard. We do not have any self-proclaimed nicknames, and we do not guarantee our clients millions of dollars. Our firm is built on referrals from past clients, other cyclists, doctors, and other attorneys, but we welcome new cyclist clients who are seeking professional representation.

Bicyclists can suffer devastating injuries caused by irresponsible motorists, and injured cyclists must navigate a maze of medical, insurance, and legal issues. An experienced bicycle lawyer can help injured cyclists handle these issues with optimal results. Not all personal injury lawyers have the experience or knowledge necessary to handle bicycle accident cases.

At Bike Guardians, we provide our clients with services that cannot be found at other personal injury law firms:

DEVOTED TO ONLY CYCLING ACCIDENTS

Bike Guardians of Scottsdale, Arizona, exclusively represents cyclists in bicycle accidents. By devoting our practice to bicycle injury and wrongful death accidents, we can provide superior legal service and advice to all bike accident injury cyclists in Phoenix, Arizona and in all Arizona towns, communities, cities, and locations.

BICYCLE LAW KNOWLEDGE & CASES EXPERIENCE

Many cyclists in Arizona choose lawyers with little experience representing bicycle accident cases. Bicycle injury law requires in-depth knowledge with answers to answers to frequently asked questions, specific traffic and insurance laws, evidence gathering techniques, and for medical treatment.

WORK DIRECTLY WITH AN ATTORNEY

Our Arizona injury clients work directly with a licensed and experienced bicycle attorney with decades years of legal case experience – not an intake clerk, a claims handler, or a paralegal. We’re experienced cyclists and bicycle enthusiasts in Arizona and handle serious bike injury cases like hit-and-run bicycle accident injury cases.

Our Goal Is To Help Cyclists Rebuild Their Lives

Effective medical care is essential. The medical providers seen, and the care received, are key to recovery. Frequently, bike accident victims believe that “time will heal” or that they are not seriously injured, when in fact, prompt and accurate diagnosis, and treatment by the right type of provider is necessary. We often see bicycle wrist injuries go untreated beyond the “golden month” of optimal care and rehabilitation. Bicycle accident victims frequently believe that their sore shoulder is just a bruise or a muscle pull, when it is often an AC separation or rotator cuff tear. Bike accident victims occasionally seek treatment of back injuries with chiropractors or massage therapists, yet their injuries need an orthopedic surgeon. Bike accident injuries must be addressed early, and by experienced medical professionals in order to recuperate and receive maximum compensation.

To rebuild their life, an accident victim needs to heal not only physically, but also financially. Along with appropriate medical care, compensation is necessary to fully recover from after a serious bicycle accident. With compensation, medical bills can be recouped, lost wages can be paid, and future medical treatment can be funded. Compensation can also help a victim recover from emotional injuries in ways that relieve stress and anxiety.

There Are Many Types of Damages

When a cyclist is injured in an accident, they are entitled to compensation from the person who caused their injuries and other damages. There are several types of damages:

  • ECONOMIC DAMAGES: Economic damages include the monetary losses caused by injuries, such as medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, and loss of future income.
  • NON-ECONOMIC DAMAGES: Non-economic damages include non-monetary consequences of injuries, such a pain and suffering, emotional distress, and inconvenience. These damages are more difficult to prove, and require an experienced bicycle accident attorney to document.
  • PUNITIVE DAMAGES:Punitive damages are intended to punish the defendant for their conduct and to deter others from similar conduct. Punitive damages can typically be claimed if the defendant had ill will and intentionally harmed the victim, or, as we see in many bike cases, the defendant knew what they were doing was unsafe and likely to cause harm, such as cell phone usage, drunk driving, or road rage.

Proving Fault Can Sometimes Be Difficult

Arizona uses an “at fault” or “tort” system for insurance claims. A claimant must show that the other party was at-fault. Occasionally a police officer is reluctant to issue a citation, or cites both the driver and the bicyclist, or has a bias against cyclists. We have represented many clients where fault was disputed by the driver’s insurance company, but our clients ultimately prevailed. Frequently, we discover evidence that has been overlooked, and in some cases we have proven that driver distractions, such as cell phone use, has elevated the claim to a punitive damage scenario.

Medical Bills Are The Victim’s Responsibility

In Arizona, the “tort” system means that a cyclist is required to deal with their medical bills. Compensation received from the liable party is partially intended to reimburse for those bills, but the gap in time between the accident and the settlement can cause stress, anxiety, and financial pressure. In addition, providers and insurers often assert subrogation claims and liens against accident victims. At Bike Guardians, we understand the various options available for navigating these issues, and our help and advice is available to guide injured cyclists through these issues.

Testimonials From Some of Our Bicycle Accident Clients

Client Satisfaction & Successful Case Resolution Is Our #1 Goal

I was side-swiped by a guy texting while I was riding in Flagstaff. Although I live in another state, we had no problem communicating, and I was kept abreast of my case the entire time. I give Bike Guardians an A+.
Paul M.

When the police ticketed my wife, instead of the driver that hit her, we knew we needed an attorney. I spoke to a few lawyers, then a friend suggested I call the Bike Guardians. It was immediately apparent that BG understood the hurdles we were facing. We are very satisfied with the outcome of her case.
Patrick & Alicia J.

Looking back on my case, I couldn’t have handled it without Bike Guardians. There were so many issues we had to deal with – who was at fault, what insurance coverage was available, choosing my doctors, getting my bills paid, and more! Thank you for navigating me through all the issues.
