I’m Injured, but I wasn't driving a car - I was hit on my bicycle!

An accident can occur when we are just riding a bike along a street - even in a bike lane. If you’ve been injured in an accident and have questions, please contact Laub & Laub Law Firm with any legal concerns regarding the accident.

We’ve found that. . . It’s better to ask questions and have an attorney provide reliable legal answers than try and figure out legal recourse yourself. TheLaub Law firm has been retained by many people in our community who needed sound legal advice from a reputable law firm regarding their case.

At Laub & Laub, we’ve been practicing law in our local area for over 55 years, so we have extensive knowledge and experience regarding personal injury cases. We provide free consultations, just as we’ve done since the firm started in 1965.

Bicycle Injuries happen. If you’ve been injured and have legal questions regarding what happened, reach out to Laub & Laub and get the answers you need.

What To Do If You Have Been the Victim of an Accident
To cover damages for personal injuries arising from an accident, victims must prove that another party, by action or negligence was at fault. Immediately after the accident occurred, a little extra effort can go a long way in collecting evidence and key eye witness statements to use at a later time.

Four Key Mistakes to Avoid after an Accident:

1. Don’t Wait to Get Help.
Waiting too long to get legal help for a personal injury case can only hurt you, not improve your odds. There is a statute of limitations that applies to car accidents and other personal injury cases. In Nevada, it’s two years from the date of injury to file a claim. Time is critical because evidence doesn’t last forever, like tire tracks, or on-scene witnesses.

2. Not Seeking Medical Care
Did you know that medical documentation builds a strong personal injury case? It’s key to establishing the worth of your case and proving that your injuries are related to the accident. Above all, seeking medical treatment for your injuries is essential to your health. You need to know the extent of the damage done to your body.

3. Talking with Other Insurance Companies
Should the adjuster call you, and they will, do not speak to them without an attorney. Why?
They want to collect your statement and then confer with their own counsel to see how to make you the responsible party. Remember, the insurance company is not your friend. They are not on your side. More than likely, once you give your statement, they will find a way to shift the responsibility of the accident and your injuries to you.

4. Accepting an Offer that is Unfair to YOU
Offers are legal documents that use legal terminology that does not read like regular English. Legal documents should ALWAYS be reviewed by a trusted attorney, someone who advocates for you. It may seem like a lot of money, but it may not be enough to cover the extent of medical expenses and time off work to recover from the accident.

Three Commonly Asked Questions

1. What Should I Do to Protect My Rights?
First, talk to your insurance company and talk to the police, but DO NOT speak to the insurance adjuster without representation. Why? Their goal is to deny your claim, or greatly reduce the amount of compensation for the injury. The adjuster is not your friend; they aren’t looking out for your best interests.

2. How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Contingency based fees are the means of payment for retaining a Laub and Laub Law Firm personal injury attorney. We only get paid if we successfully recover compensation for you. You have nothing to lose by meeting with us and retaining our law firm.

3. I Only Have Minor Injuries, Do I really Need to go to the Doctor?
YES! Please, do yourself a favor and seek medical attention after an accident. Even if you feel fine and don’t think you need medical care. What you may think is a minor ache or pain that won’t last but a few days could turn out to be a major problem like a serious spine injury.

Doctrin of Negligence in Personal Injury Cases
In a personal injury case, the doctrine of negligence comes into play. Negligence is based on the premise that, as human beings living together in society, we owe certain basic duties to one another. Specifically, we have a duty not to harm one another. Harms can result both through action and inaction, and in the case of negligence, most often concerns the latter. In legal terms, negligence is a breach of a duty owed to another that is both the actual and proximate cause of damages to the non-breaching party. When the elements of negligence expressed in this definition can be "satisfied" (proven in a court of law), a personal injury accident victim will be able to obtain a judgment for damages to recover compensation for injuries suffered as a result of the accident.
