If you’ve been seriously injured in a bicycle accident, you’re going to want to know what injuries and damages you are entitled to receive compensation for. You are entitled to any damages that have occurred to your bike. If you have an expensive road bike and a car has hit you, they’re going to have to pay to replace or repair your bike. In addition to that, you’re entitled to compensation for all of your personal injuries. What those personal injuries include are your medical expenses, out-of-pocket expenses, any type of co-pays or prescriptions or anything else that you have had to pay for.
In addition, if you have lost time from work and you have suffered a wage loss, you are entitled to the repayment of all of your lost wages and compensation that you would get from work. If you’ve had to use up vacation time, you are entitled to get repaid for that vacation time. In addition, you’re entitled to pain, suffering, disability, disfigurement, or if you’re. If your injuries are so significant and so severe that you are going to have pain, disability into the future, or that you’re going to require medical care and attention into the future, you’re entitled to get compensated for that also.
The way to make sure that you get compensation for all of the areas and all of the levels of damages that you have suffered in this type of bike/car accident, is to hire an attorney who deals with these cases on a regular basis.
