Asheville Bicycle Accident
Bicycling has expanded from a childhood leisure activity to a way of life for many people, especially in cities. Whether it is to embrace a healthier lifestyle or avoid traffic on the way to work, more people ride their bikes every day.
Some motorists, however, find it difficult to share the road. Drivers may not actively look for bike riders, fail to yield when a bicyclist has the right-of-way, or drive distracted. Other motorists see bicyclists as obstacles in the way and may drive too aggressively. When a negligent or careless driver strikes a bicyclist, the consequences can be tragic.
At Nagle & Associates, our Asheville bicycle accident attorneys believe every cyclist is entitled to feel safe on North Carolina roads.

How Can an Insurance Company Hurt Your Claim?
After a traumatic accident, it takes time to assess all your injuries, formulate a recovery plan, and adjust to this difficult stage in your life. Insurance companies will often take advantage of this situation, utilizing different tactics to minimize any settlement or deny your claim, including;
- Asking seemingly simple questions to hurt your claim
- Pressuring you to accept a low settlement before you have had a chance to explore your options
- Asking you to sign a blanket medical release that will allow them to argue some of your injuries were pre existing
- Employing delay tactics, including requesting a substantial amount of documentation
Nagle & Associates can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf and handle all the legwork of your case, allowing you to focus on health.
