bicycle and light blue helmet on the road after an orange car hit it

Bicycle Accident Lawyer

The number of bicyclists on the road seems to increase every year as bicycling becomes a favored mode of transportation for many people.

When accidents occur, our team of bicycle accident lawyers can provide you with legal counsel and help you secure compensation.

Let Younker Hyde Macfarlane, PLLC, serving Utah from Salt Lake City, make things right for you and your family.

Bike Accidents Are Common and Result in Injuries Every Day

According to the CDC, each year nearly 1,000 bicyclists die and over 130,000 are injured in bike accidents on U.S. roads.

Unlike drivers in truck or car accidents, bicyclists are exposed and vulnerable to injury even in slow-speed traffic accidents.

If the rider is not wearing a helmet, the risk of injury is even greater. Accidents that would typically be considered minor can result in severe injuries for bicyclists, including traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries.

We've Been Where You Are

Our attorneys are bicyclists themselves—our Younker Hyde Macfarlane bike team even has its own jerseys. They understand all too well the dangers and risks riders face every day. One of our partners was involved in a severe bicycle accident, so we can empathize with clients who are trying to get their lives back on track.

Choose a bicycle accident attorney who's been in the same situation as you. We understand how the process works from both sides and can guide you through it. To get started, reach out to our Salt Lake City personal injury office serving all of Utah.

Why Utah Trusts Younker Hyde Macfarlane, PLLC

Affordable Services

Our team works for the working class, not large corporations or insurance companies, because we want to make a difference in the lives of people like you. With free consultations and work performed on a contingency fee basis, our services are affordable. You have nothing to lose by reaching out to our Utah bicycle accident lawyers.

Access to Professionals

Many accidents are caused when motorists fail to respect a bicyclist's right to the road. Yet both bicyclists and motor vehicle drivers have an obligation to share the road and abide by all applicable traffic laws. This can make establishing liability difficult. The attorneys at Younker Hyde Macfarlane, PLLC have handled many bicycle accident claims and can call upon a network of experts to help us establish liability to build your case.

Put Your Life Back on Track

Due to their lack of protection against cars, bicyclists often suffer the majority of the consequences following a collision. To ensure maximum recovery on behalf of our clients, we will pursue all avenues of compensation and will provide aggressive representation. Though every case is unique, typical damages in bicycle accident cases pursue compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Future related medical expenses
  • Reconstructive surgery costs
  • Lifetime care costs
  • Loss of wages (including future wages)
  • Pain and suffering

Don't trust that the insurance companies are on your side—put attorneys in your corner who will fight for maximum compensation.

Filing a Wrongful Death Claim

If your loved one succumbed to injuries sustained in a bicycle accident, the attorneys at Younker Hyde Macfarlane, PLLC can guide you through the process of filing a wrongful death claim. Spouses, dependents, parents, and other immediate family members may be eligible to file a claim on behalf of the decedent to hold the liable party accountable for his or her actions. We know compensation can't bring your loved one back, but we hope it can ease the financial strain your family may be facing.
