Lake City Bicycle Accident Attorney
If a bicycle accident in Florence County resulted in injuries for you or a loved one, you could hold the at-fault driver financially responsible for the expenses and losses that stem from your injuries. In addition, if a loved one was fatally injured, the at-fault driver might also be responsible for wrongful death damages. Moreover, a Lake City bicycle accident attorney with our firm could help you seek compensation from the at-fault driver.
We could recover damages from economic (medical and bicycle repair bills) and noneconomic (mental and physical pain and suffering). We’ll listen to your story and collect the evidence needed to build a compelling case and your right to compensation.

- Proves the at-fault driver’s fault
- Deals with the insurance company

With more than 25 years of legal experience, our team’s familiarity with personal injury and insurance law works in favor of resolving your case.
How We Negotiate a Settlement for You
Most personal injury cases resolve themselves without going to trial. When our team represents you, a favorable outcome is our goal, whether that is by trial or settlement. To reach a settlement for you, our team starts by assigning a value to your case. We carefully gather the receipts and documents that prove your right to financial recovery. We will also:
- Conduct an independent and thorough investigation
- Help you avoid a speedy but flawed settlement
- Field settlement offers and analyze their pros and cons
- Consult medical and financial experts as needed
Because you, not us, will make the final decision on whether to accept an offer, we work hard to help you make the best choice for you. We also provide an objective look at a tough situation and help you understand when a settlement is appropriate versus when you should take the at-fault driver to court.

Do Not Wait to Seek Damages After Your Bicycle Accident
If you were injured in a bicycle accident in Lake City, South Carolina law determines how much time you have to seek financial compensation by filing a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. While our goal is to settle your case out of court, we file your lawsuit on time to ensure you can go to court if a fair settlement cannot be reached.
In South Carolina, S.C. Ann. § 15-3-530 establishes a three-year statute of limitations for personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits. This is a general deadline; exceptions could apply that affect how much time you have left.
The sooner you involve our team in your case, the more time we have to investigate the accident and ensure compliance with the filing deadline. At Anastopoulo Law Firm, our bicycle accident attorneys will ensure your potential lawsuit is filed on time.

Economic and Noneconomic Damages We Fight for
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), bicycle accidents caused nearly 467,000 injuries and more than 1,000 fatalities in 2015. If you or someone you love sustained injuries when a vehicle hit your bicycle, we help you pursue the at-fault driver.
Our team does more than assess your case – we prove the value of each individual item and the collective value of your case. Your recoverable damages could include:
- Emergency room care
- Current medical bills
- Long-term healthcare costs
- Lost wages and income
- Diminished earning capacity
- Bicycle repair or replacement bills
- Mental and emotional trauma
- Physical pain and suffering
Also, you do not have to document or assess these damages on your own. Instead, our team supports your compensation case by gathering your medical bills, property repairs, and paystubs. We also use your written prognosis to assign a value to your noneconomic damages, which can be hard to calculate on your own accurately.
