Most bicycle accidents happen in the blink of an eye. An experienced attorney makes all the difference in deconstructing every aspect of the accident, identifying how negligence contributed to your specific injuries, and then coming up with a legal strategy that is uniquely catered to the specific facts of your case.
Oftentimes, bicycle accidents are hit and runs, where the motorist flees the scene. In a hit-and-run collision, it is vitally important to hire a highly-experienced lawyer who can guide you through the multiple avenues for your case. In addition, time is against you because witnesses disappear, roadway defects get repaired, and reports fade. Don’t delay and contact Sweet Lawyers today!
