Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents

Bicycle/Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

Injuries to pedestrians hit by a vehicle like a car or bus can be serious or life-threatening. People riding bicycles or simply walking along the street have little to no protection from the impact of a collision. When a driver of a car or other vehicle makes a decision that puts others on the road at risk, like failing to watch for pedestrians or swerving into the bike lane, he or she can be held financially responsible.

Is Your Claim Viable?

When pedestrians or bicycle accident victims come to us, one of the first questions they ask is whether they have a viable claim for compensation. The answer depends on a variety of factors, one of the most important being a finding of fault. Was the vehicle's driver at fault for the collision? The answer depends on the facts of each case, such as the speed the vehicle was traveling, the location of the pedestrian and the presence of complicating circumstances like drug or alcohol use.
