Tens of Millions Won for our Clients
If you’ve been hit by a car while riding a bicycle and want to sue the driver for your injuries, call our New Jersey bicycle accident attorney at (800) 909-8129. The Law Offices of Lloyd E. Bennett, Esq., P.C. can help you, your family members or friends.
Drivers are expected to share the road with cyclists, but motorists often don’t and it’s the cyclist who is often seriously injured. Cyclists frequently suffer back, shoulder and leg injuries, broken bones, concussions, paralysis, and more. The medical costs of these injuries can exceed hundreds of thousands of dollars, which doesn’t include the immeasurable pain and suffering such an injury incurs.
In the midst of this, insurance companies will take advantage of those who are not represented by offering a settlement they know won’t cover your injuries or suffering. They may work to delay, underpay, or even deny a valid claim, knowing that there’s no one on your side who can help. Insurance companies are backed by an army of lawyers, adjusters, experts, and investigators—what can you do? You hire an experienced lawyer.
Level the Playing Field
Our personal injury lawyers in New Jersey utilize professional investigators, medical and financial experts, and decades of legal strategy to prove how much money your injuries should receive and why. In a courtroom, that means we’ll bring a strong case against the negligent driver. When it comes to insurance companies, it means demanding a higher payout of your claim than you ever would be able to get alone.
For instance, if you have auto insurance with personal injury protection (PIP), you’re eligible to receive medical benefits for your damages from your auto insurance carrier—even if your car was nowhere near the accident scene. If you do not own a car you could receive PIP benefits from the negligent driver’s auto insurance carrier. Depending on the policy, PIP insurance could cover your medical costs up to $250,000. However, if your medical bills exceed the policy limit then you’ll need to demand payment from the other party and his/her insurance provider. This is where your lawyer can help change your life.

Q:How is a personal injury claim different from a personal injury lawsuit?
A:If you wish to hold the person responsible for your injuries liable, it is important to know the differences between a claim and a lawsuit. A personal injury claim is the first step, when your attorney files against the parties responsible or liable for the injury. A personal injury lawsuit comes after the claim, taking place in a court of law, if the original claim did not yield the compensation desired by the plaintiffs.
Q:What is negligence?
A:Negligence is one of the key aspects of any personal injury case. Negligence occurs when a person or party does not act with the proper amount of care and caution that a reasonable person would use to prevent harm or injury to another individual, or when the person or party does something harmful that a careful and reasonable person would not have done in a similar situation.
Q:How important is negligence to my case?
A:Negligence is perhaps the most integral factor in an injury claim or lawsuit, and in order to fight for justice against the liable party (also called the defendant), you must first be able to prove their negligence and that it is the direct cause of your injuries.
