Bicycle Accident Lawyer in Vancouver, WA
By law, a bicyclist has all the same rights and responsibilities as other vehicle operators. Unfortunately, cyclists are at far higher risk of injury in an accident, as they lack any form of protection other than a helmet. As a result, even a low-speed collision often leads to serious injury or even death. If you or a family member is a victim of a bicycle accident, Paulson Coletti Trial Attorneys PC stands ready to help you seek justice and compensation for a bicycle accident in the Vancouver, WA area.

Types of Bicycle Accident Injuries
An action as basic as opening a car door in the path of an oncoming bicycle can create a real danger for the rider. Simply being knocked off a bike that is not moving can cause an injury. Some of the most common injuries sustained when a vehicle hits a cyclist include:
- Head and neck injuries
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones – leg, hand, clavicle, elbow
- Facial bone injuries
- Dislocated joints
- Limb loss
Who is Liable?
If your accident was the result of reckless or negligent driving behavior, you can file a claim against the driver’s insurance company. In many cases, the amount available through insurance is insufficient to cover the needs of a seriously injured cyclist. In these cases, a lawsuit can be filed in civil court to seek fair compensation.
