Everyday more and more Western New Yorkers become active cyclists. Cycling has increased dramatically over the past ten years, as not only sport but also for commuting, especially here in the Buffalo Area. Unfortunately, every six hours a bicyclist is killed in America. Motorists, because of inattention, fail to give the right of way to riders which have led to a substantial increase in the number of cycling accidents.
Even minimal contact between a vehicle and a bicycle can cause catastrophic injuries such as broken bones, back injuries, cuts and bruises. A high speed impact cause even more serious injury leading to traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries and wrongful death.
J John Sebastian understands that your immediate goals after going through such trauma are to get the appropriate medical care and make sure it is paid for, to make sure you do not suffer financially due to lost wages, and to make sure that you will receive money for your past and future pain and suffering.
J John Sebastian will discuss your situation in detail, and go over the various options available to you. We will work with insurance companies and other parties involved in your case to make sure that all your needs are handled quickly and appropriately. If the insurance company is unwilling to offer a favorable settlement, we will take the fight to the appropriate court.
