Our Bicycle Accident Attorneys Build a Compelling Case Based on Your Valdosta Crash
Bader Scott Injury Lawyers understand the common ways bicycle versus motor vehicle crashes occur and how to show how the at-fault driver caused these collisions. We can investigate your crash and gather evidence to show:
- Who caused the collision
- What happened
- How it affected you, including the physical, emotional, and financial harm you endured
Drivers commonly cause bicyclists to suffer injuries by:
- Failure to yield to them when turning
- Running red lights or stop signs
- Opening their door into a bike lane
- Changing lanes without clearing the adjacent lane
- Not leaving enough space when they pass
We investigate every Valdosta injury case we handle. We identify, gather, and organize the evidence into a compelling argument to show the insurance carrier their policyholder acted negligently behind the wheel and is, therefore, liable for the injuries that occurred.
When necessary, we present this evidence in the courtroom and ask the judge or jury to rule in favor of our client, agreeing to hold the at-fault driver legally responsible for their carelessness or recklessness on the road.

How Our Valdosta Lawyers Recover Compensation for Bicycle Accident Victims
Our Valdosta car accident lawyers understand how auto insurance claims work in Georgia. We present the case we built to the at-fault driver’s insurance carrier and request an appropriate payout based on it. This usually leads to negotiations and often to a settlement agreement for a fair payout amount.
Sometimes, this process does not go smoothly, or there is another reason why our attorneys recommend suing the at-fault driver. Our lawyers handle this process and file the lawsuit. A settlement could still occur, but we might also need to take the case to trial and ask the jury to award fair compensation.
While O.C.G.A § 9-3-33 usually gives us until the second anniversary of a crash to sue, there are numerous reasons why we need to know about your case much sooner. We recommend contacting us as soon as your injuries allow or having a loved one call us shortly after a serious injury accident. We may uncover strong evidence to support your case that is unavailable if we wait to investigate.
