E-bikes, or electric bicycles, are traditional bicycles with motors that allow riders to easily travel at high speeds. They combine many of the benefits of bicycles and motor vehicles, which is why they have become an increasingly popular method of transportation for Beaver County, Pennsylvania residents over the past few years.
That said, like a traditional bicycle, an e-bike is not an enclosed vehicle. When someone is harmed in an e-bike accident, they are not protected by features like airbags, seatbelts, and the vehicle’s metal frame, as they would be if they were in a car, truck, or van.
Have you been involved in a Beaver County e-bike accident? Your injuries are likely quite severe if so. They may require costly medical treatment for which you are not prepared to pay.
Depending on whether your accident resulted from the negligence of another party, you may be able to recover compensation for such losses. Learn more about your legal options in these circumstances by reviewing your case with a Beaver County e-bike accident attorney at Shenderovich, Shenderovich & Fishman.
The cost of any immediate medical treatment you need after being injured in an e-bike accident is not the only loss you may incur as a result of this experience. Your injuries might also interfere with your ability to perform your duties at work. If you are unable to return to work, you may not be able to earn wages until you make a full recovery.
Whether you make such a recovery depends on the severity of your injuries. If your injuries are particularly serious you might never be able to return to your job. You may even need lifelong care if your injuries prevent you from addressing your own personal needs on a daily basis.
You deserve to be compensated accordingly for such losses and damages if your accident occurred because someone else was negligent or acting maliciously. You can seek the compensation you are owed by filing a claim to collect from the negligent party’s insurance. If you find they are uninsured, or if their insurer will not offer the compensation you are eligible for, you can file a lawsuit and bring the case to court.
Do not make the mistake of attempting to recover compensation on your own. You need the assistance of a qualified Beaver County e-bike accident lawyer to optimize your chances of arriving at a fair settlement.
The experts at our Beaver County e-bike accident law firm can investigate your accident to determine who is responsible for causing it. This is key to building a case.

Once we identify the liable party and gather evidence of their negligence, we will file a claim and prepare to negotiate with the insurance company if necessary. This is perhaps the main reason to hire a Beaver County e-bike accident attorney to represent you. Because an insurance company will likely attempt to convince you to settle for less than your claim is worth, you need assistance from a professional who will reject low offers and fight for what you deserve.
