Women in Bicycle Accidents

Careless Drivers vs. Portland Bicyclists.

As a Portland Personal Injury Attorney, I represent women bicyclists who are involved in serious bicycle accidents.
Female riders are just as easily injured as male riders, but their injuries may have different consequences and implications.

Female bike riders with multiple traumatic injuries are more and more prevalent as Portland women commute to and from.

There have been several unfortunate incidents of urban bike riding through the city streets of Portland, where women bike riders “get doored” by car drivers who open their car doors directly into the path of their bikes.

When experienced Portland bicycle accident attorneys evaluate your case, there should be equal information, observation and evidence gathering as for male riders with injuries.

Women who are now unable to lift weights, cycle long distances, perform tasks, exercise, Pilates, yoga or other sport and fitness activities should be given equal respect as male exercise activities which are impaired due to the effects and consequences of a Portland Bicycle accident.

Road rash residual scars may have a greater emotional and psychological significance, and even if they do not, insurance companies normally in my experience will evaluate and value the scar Injury to a female bicyclist as more significant than if it were the identical scar of a male.

Injuries to the reproductive organs, breast scar tissue, and other female /woman bicycle accident injuries are able to be evaluated without a male direct presence.

By request and in respect of your modesty and privacy, injuries which require viewing of private areas can be examined and reported by a physician, documented by the physician’s assistant, or a female staff member may be the sole person to view such injuries.

You should consult with an experienced Portland Bicycle Accident Attorney on these matters. Call me now for a Free Legal Consultation at: (888) 446-1999; or you can also fill out our case evaluation form, and I’ll be in touch with you shortly.
