Bicycle/Pedestrian Accidents Involving A Motor Vehicle

Many individuals walk or bike for exercise or commuting purposes. However, every time they enter a roadway, they risk encountering motor vehicles weighing at least 5,000 pounds. This means that motorists who are distracted, or simply disrespectful of bicycle lanes and crosswalks, can strike a pedestrian or cyclist and cause critical, even fatal, injuries.

At our law firm, Rothenberg, Rubenstein, Berliner & Shinrod, LLC, we have recovered more than $500 million for our clients with personal injury claims. Our lawyers are compassionate and respectful of your individual situation, and aggressively seek the funds to which you are entitled when someone else's negligence has disrupted your life.

How Bicycle/Pedestrian Accidents Happen And The Catastrophic Consequences

For cars and bicyclists or pedestrians to share the road, everyone must obey the traffic laws that apply to them. Pedestrians must walk facing traffic and cross at corners within crosswalks when available, while bicyclists must ride on the right side of the road, in the same direction as traffic. But even if you did everything right as a pedestrian or cyclist, it is likely you could suffer serious injuries if you are hit by a car or truck. These injuries can rise to a catastrophic, life-altering level if you are hit by a drunk driver or a motorist engaged in other types of reckless driving.

Our firm can assist you in finding appropriate medical treatment and represent you in a personal injury lawsuit that will help you build a new life after suffering:

  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Crushed or mangled limbs

These types of lawsuits are often complex and require aggressive representation to ensure you receive the appropriate compensation to pay for your medical care and ongoing health and financial needs.
