Dedicated Bicycle Accident Attorneys And Cycling Enthusiasts
We are avid cyclists and know firsthand the enjoyment riding brings to you. From our offices in downtown New Haven, Connecticut, the bicycle accident lawyers at the Mills Law Firm, LLC, witness the joy of biking as cyclists gather every month just outside our conference rooms for the Critical Mass bike ride. And in our law practice, we witness too frequently the devastation of a bicycle accident injury.
Connecticut is a beautiful state, with many avid cyclists. However, we have too many cars and too few bicycle lanes, and the mix is sometimes dangerous.
Experienced Lawyers Who Are Passionate About Bicycle Accident Claims
Our Connecticut bicycle accident lawyers have more than 35 years of combined experience in personal injury law. We are dedicated to obtaining full and fair compensation for your cycling accident injury, or wrongful death compensation if a family member was killed while riding a bike.
We are active cyclists ourselves and have a special empathy for the victims of these accidents. We have recovered millions on behalf of injured bicyclists, including a $2.3 million dollar jury verdict for a cyclist killed in West Haven and $700,000 jury award for a cyclist who fell on a speed bump in Norwalk.
We have tried or settled many more claims for cyclists, and we stay current on all aspects of cycling law and cycling safety. We also participate in numerous cycling charity events through Connecticut, and educate cyclists throughout the state on bike laws and cyclists’ rights.
Pursuing Full And Fair Compensation For Injured Cyclists
The Mills Law Firm, LLC, pursues compensation for all causes of bicycle accident injuries:
- Driver negligence or illegal maneuvers
- Failure to use turn signals or to watch for cyclists
- Failure to look for oncoming riders when opening doors or pulling into traffic
- Hazardous road conditions (potholes, sand and gravel, construction)
- Product defects (helmet failed, chain broke, wheel bent)
Our New Haven bike accident attorneys will work to negotiate an insurance settlement that covers medical expenses, lost wages, permanent disability and other damages. If the insurance company will not settle for the full and fair amount of the harm you sustained, we are not afraid to try your case before a jury.
In addition to representing injured parties, Mr. Mills also has many years of experience working for insurance companies to defend against accident claims. Mr. Mills has tried more than 80 cases to verdict, and has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in civil litigation for 27 years. This experience works to your advantage as he can anticipate and counter the insurer’s attempts to deny or limit your claim.
