Athens Bike Accident Lawyers

When a car or other motor vehicle collides with a bicyclist, the injuries can be devastating. An unfortunate fact of many bicycle accidents is that while the cyclist is lying on the ground and possibly fighting for his or her life, the driver has left the scene without a second thought.

At the Athens personal injury law firm of Wells and McElwee P.C., we have a sincere commitment to serving the interests of our injured clients – whether that means helping them come to grips with a disabling injury or fighting on their behalf in the courtroom.

The Right Personal Injury Lawyers For Your Claim

Our attorneys have the experience, dedication and skill needed to overcome the many challenges that a bike crash claim can present.

  • Hit-and-run accidents: We assess other sources of liability when the negligent driver leaves the accident scene.
  • Child injuries: We consult with specialists to estimate the long-term needs of children severely injured after being struck by a car while riding a bike.
  • Accidents involving bicyclists in the street: Our law firm is equipped to overcome comparative negligence defenses from the insurance company alleging that our client suddenly entered traffic.
  • Drunk drivers who hit bikers: Our attorneys pursue full accountability against those parties who drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol and strike bicycle riders on the sidewalk, bike path or street.

The sheer force of a motor vehicle accident can cause a bicyclist to be pinned against the vehicle, resulting in serious deformities or lost limbs. Alternatively, the impact of the vehicle can cause the bicyclist to be thrown, resulting in traumatic brain or head injuries, spinal cord injuries or other life-altering injuries. No matter the situation, we strive to clearly demonstrate how these devastating injuries have impacted the accident victim in terms of future medical expenses, long-term care needs, job loss or loss of earning potential.
