Here at the Tyrone Law Firm, we are dedicated to representation of clients and their families in catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases. When you think of someone being injured or killed by another’s negligence, many times the first thought is of an auto or truck collision. However, in a place such as the Greater Atlanta area, pedestrians and bicyclists are many times the victims of  negligent or careless motorists.

It is this combination – top trial attorney and competitive cyclist that leads many cyclists to choose Nelson as their attorney when they are horribly injured. It is also what leads families to choose Nelson when their loved one has been killed in a cycling accident.

Bicycle Accident Lawsuits Nationwide:

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that there were 44,000 bicyclists injured in 2006 and nearly 800 killed. Males account for the vast majority of bicycle injuries and deaths, and children between the ages of 5 and 15 are involved in nearly 20 percent of all bicycle accident cases.

If a motorist has caused you harm because he or she was driving with a reckless disregard for the safety of others, you can file a claim to obtain financial compensation for your suffering. Motorists have an obligation to obey the rules of the road. They also have a responsibility to exercise caution when driving.

Unfortunately, many motorists don’t appreciate that individuals can suffer serious injuries or death if struck by an automobile while riding a bike. Contact our firm today to schedule a free consultation.

We are Expert at Holding Negligent Motorists Accountable for Their Actions:

If, tragically, someone you love has been killed in a bicycle accident, our team will help recover compensation for funeral costs and the emotional trauma associated with the untimely death of a family member.

If the defendant is found to be responsible for your injuries, it may be possible to obtain compensation for medical costs, rehabilitation costs, loss of wages, diminished earning capacity, and pain and suffering and future medical needs. If a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury we will involve a Life Care Planner to document every anticipated medical need for your future. Put plainly, we will work tirelessly to see that you obtain compensation sufficient to cover a lifetime of medical costs.

The filing of a personal injury lawsuit is a complex undertaking that requires a comprehensive understanding of our legal system. Bicyclists – in particular those who cycle competitively – are resilient and have to be tough and courageous to make it to the end of the race. Nelson Tyrone has the courage to make it to the end of the lawsuit – whether it ends for our client in settlement or in a trial.
