What about the damage to my bicycle and accessories such as my helmet, jersey and shoes?

Bicycles today can run from $50.00 to $15,000.00. You deserve full compensation for the reasonable value of your bicycle and its many components. Schedule your bicycle on your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy.

If your bike is damaged in an accident with a careless driver, we usually start at the bike shop of purchase and bring in the damaged item(s) or a photograph of it/them. Even if the bicycle or some components were purchased on the internet, a reputable bicycle shop can usually provide estimates for all the damage.

Also, the damaged bicycle frame, components, cycling computer, ripped handlebar tape, ripped seat, torn clothes, scuffed bicycle shoes, and cracked, bloodied or broken helmet are evidence that corroborate the serious impact and your physical injuries.
