At Shanks Law Offices we advocate for bike rights.
Like in many personal injury cases, bike injuries vary from typical bumps, bruises, cuts, and scrapes, to more serious fractures and spinal disk injuries, to catastrophic accident resulting in death or paralysis. Some of the most common bike injuries result from the cyclist being injured by an opened door, commonly referred to as a ‘dooring’ injury, or being run over and/or off the road by a car or truck.
If injured, it is vital that Omaha cyclists know their legal rights and seek medical attention immediately. Fortunately for injured bicyclists, the City of Omaha and State of Nebraska have passed favorable laws that hold negligent drivers accountable for bicycle accidents.
