Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents

Have you been hit by a car while walking or riding a bicycle? Were you following the rules of the road and were hit due to the driver's negligence? For example, were you hit while walking or cycling in a crosswalk or on a designated bike path? Did a driver fail to stop, even though you were clearly visible?

Our first job in analyzing your case is to examine the circumstances for evidence that points to the driver's fault.

Hit and Run Accidents: If you are the victim of a hit and run accident, there are deadlines within which you must report the incident to your own insurance company. If you do not report the incident within the required time frame, and if law enforcement officers never find the culprit, then you could lose your right to get financial compensation for your injuries.
