Accidents Involving Pedestrians And Bicyclists

Of all of the types of vehicle collisions, those involving pedestrians and bicyclists are likely the most devastating. The combination of lack of protective gear for a pedestrian and the sheer size of most vehicles can lead to catastrophic injuries or even death.

Financial, Physical And Emotional Devastation

When a car or truck collides with a pedestrian or bicyclist, the injuries are often dramatic — impacting the entire family. Serious injuries can occur from both the initial collision and the victim striking the pavement, trees, guardrails or other objects. We can represent clients struggling through:

  • Head trauma
  • Brain damage
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Paralysis (paraplegia or quadriplegia)
  • Broken bones
  • Tendon or ligament damage
  • Amputation

Throughout Floyd County, our firm can represent individuals injured in numerous situations, including:

  • Walking, jogging or running along the road
  • Crossing in a crosswalk
  • Crossing the street at a dangerous intersection
  • Riding in a designated bike lane
  • Walking or riding on a sidewalk entrance to a parking lot or parking garage

Many accidents are caused by cars and trucks turning at an intersection and not seeing bicyclists in a bike lane or pedestrians attempting to cross the road. If you were injured, it is important that you call or email a skilled attorney. We offer free consultations for personal injury cases and can provide services in English and Spanish.
