E-bikes, short for electric bicycles, are traditional bicycles equipped with electric motors. Like traditional bicycles, they don’t take up as much space as cars or other such vehicles. However, their motors allow riders to travel at somewhat high rates of speed more easily than they might be able to by pedaling alone.
Unfortunately, while e-bikes offer many benefits to riders, as with traditional bicycles, they do not have strong metal frames surrounding their riders. They also lack safety features like airbags and seatbelts.
This lack of protection can have serious consequences for e-bike riders when accidents occur. If you’ve been involved in an e-bike accident, your injuries may be quite severe.
You might be able to recover financial compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and other such losses in these circumstances. Review your case with a Greensburg, Pennsylvania e-bike accident attorney at Shenderovich, Shenderovich & Fishman to learn more about your legal options.
Injuries resulting from an e-bike accident will typically require costly medical treatment. Your injuries could also require you to stay home from work until you make a full recovery. This will prevent you from earning wages.
Your injuries may even be so serious that they render you unable to work indefinitely. They could prevent you from attending to your own personal needs on a daily basis as well.
If you sustained injuries in an e-bike accident resulting from the negligence or actions of another party, you can pursue compensation for such losses by filing a claim to collect from the negligent party’s insurance. You also have the option of filing a lawsuit and bringing the negligent party to court if they are uninsured or if their insurer does not offer a fair settlement.
