​Attorney Can Help

You need a bicycle accident lawyer that understands every aspect of your personal injury case.

When a fellow cyclist is injured in an accident, he will conduct a thorough investigation to prove fault and liability. Many cyclists now use tracking technology (Garmin, Wahoo, Fitbits) that can provide invaluable evidence in such cases. He can use this information to build a strong case against negligence or recklessness.

Mr. Silverman Is up for the Challenge Of Your Bicycle Injury Case

Bicycle accidents tend to be some of the most hard fought cases. Unlike rear end car accidents, the driver and cyclist often are at odds over who was at fault. Therefore these cases are less likely to settle and more likely to end up in court.

When an insurance company is willing to engage in good faith negotiations we are more than happy to resolve a case out of court. However, when the claim is denied you need an attorney who does not hesitate to take on the fight, you can rely on Mr. Silverman.

Bicycle Accident Injuries in Virginia

Although cyclists in Virginia are not required to wear a helmet, many do so to avoid serious injuries. Tragically, when larger, heavier vehicles are involved in an accident with a bicycle, severe injuries can happen. These serious injuries can hinder a cyclist’s cognitive and motor functions and may require extensive and expensive medical care and rehabilitation. Sadly, some may never recover after such an accident.

While there is no amount of money that can ever make up for serious injury or the loss of a loved one, compensation can alleviate your financial worries and lessen some of the stress the accident has caused. Possible injuries that you can potentially seek financial compensation may include:

  • Road Rash
  • Head and Brain Injury
  • Neck Injury
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Broken Bones
  • Death

Joshua and Kirtrina are very good professionals. They were able to negotiate a really good compensation! Joshua was in touch throughout the process and gave every little explanation to my family and me. Kirtrina was doing an amazing job with the documents and dealing with 3rd parties and payment! Outstanding work!
