We urge you to contact our attorneys at Crary, Clark, Domanico, & Chuang, P.S., today, if you have been involved in a bicycle accident. We will work with you to obtain the evidence needed to prove your injuries. If settlement in not an option, our trial attorneys will tenaciously defend your rights in court.
Frequently Asked Questions
If I get hit while I’m not wearing a helmet, can I get compensation?
If you get hit by a car while riding a bicycle, the fact that you weren’t wearing a helmet—even though it’s required in Spokane—won’t keep you from getting compensation. However, in Washington state, the courts are allowed to assign fault based on a percentage of negligence and a jury might reduce the amount of compensation if they felt that it was unreasonable not to wear one.
How long do I have to make a claim for injuries sustained while riding my bike?
In Washington state, any injuries that were due to someone else’s negligence has a three-year statute of limitations. This means that if you are riding a bike and get hit by a car, then you have three years from the date of the accident to file your claim.
What if I’m riding my bike in the street in Spokane and get hit by a car?
In Washington state, a bicycle is considered the same as any other legal vehicle on the streets and is subject to all the rules of the road. Thus if you are injured in a bicycle and car accident, then the law will determine who was negligent, and that person will have to pay for your injuries.
