Representation for Individuals Throughout Indianapolis
Like many other states, Indiana has several laws that are implemented to protect bicyclists and pedestrians. Bicycle laws help ensure both public and personal safety, making the streets that we all share safer. Indiana laws provide the following:
- Indiana Code 9-21-8-37 - A person who drives a vehicle should exercise great care to avoid colliding with a pedestrian or person on a bicycle, giving an audible signal when necessary, and exercise great care upon observing a child.
- Indiana Code 9-21-11-2 - A person riding a bicycle on a roadway has all the rights and duties that are applicable to a person who drives a vehicle.
Unfortunately, no matter how much bicyclists may adhere to the codes that govern bicycle safety, many are still involved in tragic collisions. Clearly, there are huge safety concerns for any bicyclist, but the hazards of the road are magnified when inattentive drivers do not adhere to motorist laws as well.

If you have been involved in a bicycle collision, we suggest that you speak immediately with a lawyer. There is a statute of limitations on bicycle accident claims, so taking action in a timely manner will make a difference in your claim!
We can pursue compensation for the following:
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses or doctor bills
- Rehabilitation or other medical treatment required
- Loss of wages or future loss of wages due to time off work

Although you can file for a claim on your own, only an experienced Indiana bicycle accident attorney will have an intimate knowledge of the law and of insurance company practices. Oftentimes, an insurance company will try to offer you less compensation than what you actually deserve. We can help you through the process of filing a claim, investigating the cause of your accident, calculate your injuries or damages in a monetary form, and take legal action against negligent parties to maximize your benefits.
