Washington DC & Maryland Bike Accident Law Firm

The District of Columbia is one of the best urban centers in the country for bike riding. Miles of roads have dedicated bike lanes; even in the downtown core.  Unfortunately, a bike accident is still common as many lanes still have no barriers that protect bikers from the many cars, buses and trucks speeding by them. And many motorists continue to be distracted and disregard bikers. They end up causing an easily preventable bike accident such as rear-ending a cyclist or opening a car door in front of a bicyclist.

Our firm helps persons who have suffered a bike injury caused by another’s negligence. If someone else’s actions caused your injury, our accident reconstruction experts and lawyers will find the evidence. Our job is to then hold the negligent party responsible for causing you to suffer a serious injury. Contact us for a full investigation of your case in order to determine whether negligence was the cause of your bike injury.

If you suffered a serious injury, you could be entitled to compensation for lost wages, medical bills, damage to your bicycle and pain and suffering.

Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims

There is a time limit for initiating a personal injury lawsuit. In Washington, D.C. and Maryland you have three years from the date of the injury to make a claim.  Wrongful death matters are treated differently in the District of Columbia where the time limit is two years. In Maryland, there is a three-year limitation on wrongful death cases.

When you reach out to us, your personal injury attorney will thoroughly analyze your case and conduct a full investigation to determine whether you should pursue a bike injury case.
