Knocked Down While Biking?

What is a biker’s greatest fear? Someone opening a car door and forcing them to drive into the door or into adjacent traffic.

Bicyclists are incredibly vulnerable on our streets and roads. A pothole can damage a car’s suspension, but it can send a bicyclist flying — and alter that biker’s future in a very negative way.

Drivers fail to see them in their rearview mirrors. Drivers turn right into bicyclists. Many drivers are indignant bicyclists are on the road at all.

Let Bob Or Tom Help You Back Up

Both Bob Sousa and Tom Minogue step up to protect the rights of injured bicyclists, wherever negligence plays a role: driver negligence, unsafe roadways or catastrophic failure of the bike itself.

Injured bikers are often unsure what the next step is. The next step is to talk to a capable bicycle injury lawyer like Bob Sousa or Tom Minogue. Insurance company adjusters will try to talk you out of filing a claim. Remember: They are protecting their interests, not yours.

You may not realize personal injury lawyers don’t cost you anything upfront. If we win for you, we are paid out of that settlement or verdict. Steer clear of any lawyer who asks for fees upfront.

When I injured my back at work my employer denied that my injury occurred at work. Because of this they would not pay me disability benefits and pay for my doctors’ bills. Since my back injury was so serious that it required surgery I could not work. My not having a pay check placed my family in a bad situation.
Although many of the issues in my case were complex, Attorney Sousa constantly met with me to explain what was going on with my case. He answered all my questions. Without the legal assistance I received from Sousa & Minogue, LLC , I do not know where my family would be today.
