The Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm represent victims and families of victims who have been injured or killed in accidents involving bicycles, motorcycles, and mopeds.
We can even come to you at your home, hospital or on the job. If you don’t have a doctor to treat you for your injury, we may well be able to find doctors that can treat you without you paying them until the end of the case, and we can keep insurance adjusters from calling you.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA), more than 51,000 bicyclists have died in traffic accidents since 1932. In 2009 alone, 630 cyclists were killed and 51,000 were injured, and the statistics for motorcycle riders are worse. The NHTSA estimates that 4,595 motorcycle riders were killed and 84,000 were injured as the result of a traffic accident.
People riding on motorcycles, mopeds and bicycles, have less protection than other motorists have on the road, and this makes them more vulnerable to serious injury. They are more likely to die if they are involved in a crash, and if they survive, their injuries may be more devastating. Victims’ entire lives are altered and they and their families can be left with huge medical bills, loss of income, loss of potential future income, and immense pain and suffering. This is why it is so important to contact us immediately if you have been injured in an accident.
In one case, we were able to get a client who was hit by a car while on a bicycle $500,000, which was 100% of the insurance policy.
