Fighting For Cyclists After An Accident
Call for a free consultation at 203-776-4500.
We are avid cyclists and know firsthand the enjoyment riding brings to you. From our offices in downtown New Haven, Connecticut, our lawyers at Mills & Cahill, 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 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 due to 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 throughout Connecticut and educate cyclists throughout the state on bike laws and cyclists’ rights.
Pursuing Full And Fair Compensation For Injured Cyclists
Mills & Cahill, LLC, pursue 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 attorneys will work to negotiate a full and fair settlement for the harm you suffered. However, if a fair settlement cannot be reached, we are not afraid to try your case before a jury. We take many tough cases, including those that involve complex issues, which many other law firms may be reluctant to take on.
Attorney Mills and Attorney Cahill have tried hundreds of cases to verdict, representing defendants in civil litigation for over 30 years. This experience works to your advantage as they can anticipate and counter the opposing side’s strategy in order to get their clients the best results.
Unfortunately, sometimes police are biased against bike riders, but as avid cyclists, we support your rights and want to ensure you get the compensation you deserve. Our attorneys assist many clients who have suffered serious injuries during cycling events like bicycling month and in popular local biking venues, such as the areas surrounding the Yale University campus and bike routes along the Connecticut shoreline, including Branford, Madison and Guilford.
We offer a free consultation, and we can visit you at your home or hospital, including evenings or weekends by appointment. We have Spanish translators on staff if that is needed.
