When this does not happen, and you are injured, you deserve compensation for your injuries and other related losses. An Abbeville bicycle accident attorney from Poulin | Willey | Anastopoulo, LLC. provides practical and straightforward legal advice. We help people pursue compensation after being injured in a cycling accident.
When Other Motorists Disregard Your Safety, You Deserve Fair Compensation
There is no doubt that cycling is an enjoyable, healthy, convenient, and environmentally friendly mode of transport. However, as vulnerable road users with limited protection, there is potential for serious injuries or worse in the event of an accident.
South Carolina is a comparative negligence state. As such, proving fault is an essential part of the legal process, as it affects how damages are awarded. For example, the defense may claim the accident was wholly or partially your fault.
Our lawyers can help you gather evidence of liability to support your case and hold the other party accountable for their actions. We will also assess the financial extent of your injuries and other related losses to ensure you are fairly compensated for damages such as:
- Medical bills and treatment costs such as hospital stays, diagnostic tests, prescription medication, and rehabilitation costs.
- Lost wages and compensation for any impact on your employment in the future due to your injuries.
- Pain and suffering and inconvenience caused by the accident for any impact on your day-to-day life, the pursuit of social interests, emotional well-being, or the ability to work.
- Property damage or loss
Wrongful Death Actions
If the accident caused the tragic loss of a loved one, bereaved family members may be able to pursue financial damages by filing a wrongful death lawsuit against those responsible. Please do reach out and speak with a member of our legal team for advice and support if you lost a family member in this way.

Our Lawyers Can Help You Get Back in the Saddle
Unfortunately, as with many things legal, the process of recovering compensation can be complex. Further, insurance companies do not always act in your best interests. They may deny a legitimate claim, unfairly assign fault, or minimize the extent of your injuries and other losses to reduce the amount of damages offered. We understand your rights as a cyclist and will not settle for anything less than you deserve by:
- Helping you navigate the legal process
- Building a case that reflects the full extent of your injuries and losses
- Proving liability
- Fighting for the compensation you deserve

Collisions Caused by Negligent Drivers Often Have Severe Consequences
Preventable cycling accidents are not uncommon, and many are attributed to:
- Driver negligence, including distracted driving, driving under the influence, reckless driving, and non-compliance with traffic laws.
- Poor road conditions related to potholes, lighting, signage, or crosswalks.
- Defective bicycle equipment, involving helmets, brakes, tires, or wheel spokes.
Regrettably, many cycling accidents are caused by other road users. However, we can also assist if you are injured due to poorly maintained roads or defective cycling equipment.
When another party is responsible for the accident, we are here to help you understand the legal process, build a case that reflects the full extent of your injuries, and fight for the compensation you deserve.
