What Compensation Can You Receive for Your Gardena Bicycle Accident Injuries?
When it comes to bicycle accidents, there are two main types of compensation that victims can pursue: economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages cover any financial costs associated with the accident, such as medical bills, lost wages due to an inability to work, or property damage. Non-economic damages can’t be added up on a calculator but are still very real. They may include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, or diminished quality of life due to disability or disfigurement caused by the accident.
In addition to these two main types of compensation, there are also punitive damages designed to punish someone for particularly egregious behavior. Punitive damages are rare but may be applicable if it can be determined that another person acted recklessly or intentionally caused harm to you. For instance, punitive damages may be awarded if a driver hit and injured a bicyclist in a fit of road rage.
How Hiring a Lawyer Can Help You After a Bicycle Accident
Bicycle accident victims should seek legal help immediately. An experienced bicycle accident attorney will not only advise you on what kinds of compensation may be available but will also represent your case if it goes to court. They can negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf so that you get fair compensation for your injuries and losses. Your attorney will also take care of all paperwork and deadlines associated with your case so you can focus on healing from your injuries instead.
The bottom line is that a bike accident can be physically and emotionally traumatic. Not knowing what to do can make an already difficult situation even worse and cost you dearly at a difficult time emotionally and financially.

Gathering Evidence After a Bicycle Accident
Take Photographs of the Scene of the Accident
It’s essential to document the accident scene if you can. Take photographs of yourself, your bike, and anything else that may have contributed to or been damaged by the accident. You may also want to take photographs of nearby traffic signs and/or road conditions that could have been factors in causing the accident.
Gather Witness Information
If any witnesses saw what happened during or immediately after the accident, try to get their contact information. It is possible that these witnesses could be called if there is a dispute about who was at fault for the accident or how it happened.
