Were You The Victim Of A Pedestrian Or Bicycle Accident?
It is the responsibility of every driver to remain alert and yield to pedestrians. Unfortunately, many irresponsible drivers ignore pedestrians’ rights, and countless avoidable accidents occur as a result. When a pedestrian is hit by a car, there are often grounds for the pedestrian to seek damages for medical care, loss of income and other considerations.
The insurance companies that cover the negligent drivers in pedestrian accidents will attempt to place blame on the victims in order to avoid paying for their obligations. Having a dedicated attorney behind you from the start will help to ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive the compensation you deserve.
We Can Help You Receive Fair Compensation
Bicycling is a popular recreational activity as well as an alternative means of transportation for people throughout North Carolina. Charlotte, North Carolina, and surrounding communities throughout the area have added dedicated bike lanes and enacted specific laws designed to protect bicyclists’ safety. Nevertheless, bicycle riders are injured every day in accidents caused by negligent drivers.
Motorists often fail to see bicyclists. As a result, cyclists are often sideswiped, struck while a car is making a turn or struck head-on. Without the protective steel and glass of a car, cyclists experience serious injuries such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Traumatic neck and spine injuries
- Broken bones
- Lacerations, contusions and abrasions
- Bone dislocations
- Cosmetic disfigurement
- Wrongful death
Both pedestrian and bicycle accident victims have the right to seek full and fair compensation for the injuries they suffer as a result of other parties’ negligence. These cases can be difficult to prove, and the insurance company will fight aggressively to divert responsibility from its policyholder.
