Cyclists are incredibly vulnerable on the roads as a result of car-centric infrastructure. Accidents with cars are frequent, often with devastating aftermath. After a crash, we meet injured cyclists in Northern Arizona at their lowest point and strive to lift them up again. At The Kaiser Law Group, we have demonstrated courtroom success, getting accident victims the compensation from insurance companies that they need to recover.
Being on the road with cars puts cyclists at an immediate disadvantage. Safely sharing the road relies on a delicate balance of numerous factors. Drivers must be aware of their surroundings, obey traffic signs, stop signs and signals, and have safe road conditions. Bike crashes can happen when one or more of these factors are absent.

There are many more ways these accidents can unfold, and cyclists are at a significant disadvantage in each one.
Immediately after a crash, you should call the police and emergency medical services to the scene or have a bystander do so for you. Take photos of the scene and get the driver’s information if your condition permits you to do. Get medical attention as soon as possible, even if your injuries are minor. Finally, consult an attorney about a potential personal injury claim.
