When it comes to bicycling in New Jersey, Monmouth County has some of the most picturesque trails and roads in the state. Many residents are also turning to bike-riding for more than just pleasure; savings on gas and to the environment, savings to the wallet, and excellent aerobic exercise are all compelling reasons for people to ride their bike.
While some Monmouth County roads have a built-in bicycle lane, many others do not. This means that cyclists are sharing the road with cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other commercial vehicles, and no matter how many precautions the cyclists take, if other drivers act in reckless or negligent manner by speeding, disobeying traffic laws, or drive while drunk or distracted, the cyclists are often the ones to pay the price of that negligence.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a bicycle accident due to the reckless or negligent actions of another party or parties, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost income, and physical and emotional pain and suffering through a personal injury claim.

What to Do After a Bicycle Accident in Monmouth County
If someone is involved in a bicycle accident, there are several important steps that are recommended in order to protect the health and financial and legal rights of the injured party.
- Secure Your Immediate Safety – Anytime an accident occurs, calling 911 is important, even if neither party seems injured. In the case of any kind of injury, calling 911 is the fastest way to have emergency medical help arrive to the scene of the accident.
- Seek Medical Attention – Regardless of whether or not you feel injured, it is important to visit a medical professional as soon as possible after being involved in any kind of accident. Many times, injuries to the neck, spine, or brain are not immediately evident and take some time for symptoms to develop. The sooner you speak with a doctor, the sooner they can detect if you have been injured in any of these manners, and the sooner they can begin treatment. Additionally, the sooner you speak to a doctor following your accident, the easier it will be to prove that these injuries were, in fact, caused by your accident.
- Speak with an Attorney – If you have been injured in any way, many times your insurance company or the insurance company of the responsible party will try to get you to “settle” your claim, usually for much less than you actually need or deserve for your injuries. They may also try to get you to say or do something which they can then use against you should you try to file a personal injury claim. However, by speaking with an experienced personal injury attorney, you can avoid many of these common pitfalls and traps, and have a much clearer understanding of your options moving forward.
Bicycle Accident Injuries, Middletown Injury Attorneys Help You and Your Family Recover Compensation
When a person is injured by the reckless or negligent actions of another party, the injury victim may be able to recover compensation for their medical expenses (both current and future), lost income and loss of earning capacity, and their loss of enjoyment of life (also referred to as pain and suffering).
Especially when it comes to bicycle accidents caused by other cars or trucks, injuries to the cyclist can be very severe, and even result in a wrongful death claim. This makes it that much more important that individuals injured in bicycle accidents and their families recover full and fair compensation, as once any kind of settlement is accepted no further compensation can be sought, even if it is discovered that that same settlement does not fully cover the expenses and damages caused by the bicycle accident.
By retaining the counsel of our experienced Middletown injury attorneys, you and your family can rest assured that the damages you have suffered will be fully and accurately assessed, effectively proven to the courts and to the insurance company, and fairly reimbursed either through a settlement or through a jury verdict. Not only can our firm guide and advise you throughout this entire process, we can also do so on a contingency fee basis, meaning you do not have to pay for our services or the expenses of your trial unless we secure you a final recovery.
