Bicycle Accident Claims

bicycle accident lawyer

If you are struck while on a bicycle, you may have a personal injury claim. If you are struck by a motor vehicle while on a bicycle, insurance benefits may be available to you. Motor vehicle insurance policies in New Brunswick provide coverage to bicyclists when they are struck by a motor vehicle. It is sometimes difficult to understand the benefits or compensation available after a bicycle accident. 

Insurance companies won’t always provide detailed information on the compensation you may be eligible for. Compensation or benefits may cover medical and other expenses, loss of income, general damages for pain and suffering, inability to do housework, and more. Some benefits are available immediately after the accident, and other compensation is available later as a lump sum. Some benefits may be automatically available regardless of who is at fault for the accident. Other compensation may require proof of fault or injury.

Our personal injury law firm has over 35 years of experience, specifically in the area of bicycle accident claims. Our lawyers exclusively practice personal injury law, and we only ever represent the side of the injured party. We have represented thousands of injured individuals in their personal injury claims in Fredericton and throughout New Brunswick, and we have helped them recover the compensation they deserve. Our injury lawyers will not only get you an excellent result on your injury claim, but they are also trained in trauma-informed practices to help support you as you navigate the legal system.


Understanding Bicycle Accidents

A bicycle accident happens when a bicycle is struck by a vehicle. This could include a car, truck, motorcycle, another bicycle, or ATV. These collisions can occur when the bicycle is on a sidewalk, in a bicycle lane, along the side of a road, in a parking lot, or crossing an area of motor vehicle travel. Unfortunately, we often see cases where bicycles have the right of way while travelling on the road, in a bicycle lane, or across an intersection and are struck by an inattentive driver.

Bicycle accidents can be devastating and cause severe injury and loss. The injuries from bicycle accidents are often severe due to high forces caused by being struck by a vehicle. In some cases, bicycle accidents can result in death. If you have been injured or lost a loved one as a result of a bicycle accident, it is important to consult a lawyer as soon as possible to determine your legal rights. There are different types of compensation available to parties injured as a result of bicycle accidents in New Brunswick. A personal injury lawyer can explain what compensation may apply to you.

There are also often limitation dates for bringing personal injury claims. Specific New Brunswick statutes and laws govern the rules around these limitation periods. A personal injury lawyer can advise you of any potential limitation dates and ensure you don’t lose your right to bring a claim. The earlier you contact a personal injury lawyer, the better your lawyer can help you avoid missing a limitation date.


Why Hire a Bicycle Accident Lawyer in New Brunswick

Bicycle accident claims can last for months or even years. Bicycle accident claims can be a complex area of practice. It is important to choose a personal injury lawyer who can both support you through the process and get you the compensation you deserve.

It is also essential that the personal injury lawyer you choose has experience in the jurisdiction where the claim will be brought. If you are bringing a claim in New Brunswick, the lawyer should have experience practicing in New Brunswick, as the law and rules differ between provinces.

You also want a lawyer with experience representing these types of claims before the Courts in New Brunswick. Experienced litigation lawyers are familiar with the legal rules and can leverage this knowledge strategically during your claim.

At Melanson Law, we have over 35 years of experience bringing bicycle accident claims in New Brunswick. We practice exclusively personal injury law. We know the insurance companies in New Brunswick well, and they know us. We also intimately understand the legal issues that can arise during a bicycle accident claim and know how to address these issues. We appear frequently before the Courts in New Brunswick.


Our Bicycle Accident Legal Services

Melanson Law has extensive experience with bicycle accident claims. We have helped many clients secure compensation for their injuries after bicycle accidents. We represent clients who have been injured while bicycling on the road, on the sidewalk, in a bicycle lane, across roads and intersections, and more. We represent individuals with many different injuries, including: Broken bones, head injuries/concussions, spinal cord injuries, lacerations, scarring, chronic pain, anxiety and depression, mental health/psychological injuries, soft tissue injuries, nerve damage, amputations, and pelvic injuries. We also represent the families and loved ones of individuals who have been tragically killed in bicycle accidents.

We help clients determine what types of benefits or compensation may be available. For example, some insurance benefits are no-fault and can be accessed right away after a bicycle accident. Other compensation can be secured after the full extent of the injuries and treatment required is known. The personal injury lawyers at Melanson Law can meet with you to determine what types of benefits and compensation may be available and to develop a plan for securing that compensation.


Our Experienced Bicycle Accident Lawyers

Melanson Law is run by the father-daughter team of Brent and Jessica Melanson. Brent has been representing clients for bicycle accident claims for over 35 years, and Jessica for over 10. Melanson Law’s personal injury lawyers have extensive experience and take a client-centred approach to representing their clients for bicycle accident claims.

We have considerable experience in bicycle accident claims. We know the nuances of the legal system and are intimately familiar with the law on bicycle accident claims. We have resolved many claims and established relationships and a reputation with insurance adjusters and defence counsel. This ensures that your claim is taken seriously by the insurance companies.

A large part of the personal injury lawyer’s role is to guide the client through the legal process for resolving a claim. Melanson Law takes this role seriously. We clearly explain the steps of the process as they happen, and we provide you with the information necessary to make informed decisions by explaining your options and providing our advice. We are in touch on a regular basis to keep clients informed and advise on our strategy for the claim. We not only aim to get the best compensation for our clients, but also to ensure that the client is well supported throughout the process.

Personal injury law, at its core, is about helping people. Often, insurance companies won’t provide the compensation an individual who has been injured in a bicycle accident is entitled to without a lawyer getting involved to advocate for the claim. At Melanson Law, we care about helping our clients enforce their legal rights. We want to see our clients get the compensation they deserve and will work hard to get an excellent result.
