Many Factors Determine Your Accident Liability
A claim arising from a bicycle accident consists of two components, liability, and damages. While damages deal with the consequences caused by the injuries sustained in the bicycle accident (i.e., medical bills, lost wages, pain & suffering, loss of enjoyment/quality of life, etc.), liability deals with fault. Because Utah is a comparative fault state, a bicyclist may be entitled to damages even if his or her conduct helped cause the bicycle accident.
Because many factors determine liability, it is important you contact the experienced bicycle accident attorneys of Utah Bicycle Law and Lance Bingham, P.C. as soon as possible following your bicycling accident.
