Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents
It is hard enough picturing a Smart Car and a tractor-trailer sharing the same road; but when you envision cars and trucks sharing the road with bicycles and pedestrians, it truly paints an unfair picture. When pedestrians or cyclists get hit in traffic, their injuries can be life-changing and even fatal, and the negligent drivers involved need to be held responsible and liable for all injuries, monetary losses, and the pain and suffering.
If you are hit riding your bike or walking on the street, your first concern obviously has to be your health. Because of your injuries, you probably weren’t able to stick around to recreate the accident or gather witness statements. All of this may eventually be important to your case. Menzer Law Firm can help you with all that. As soon as you are able, you should contact us so we can begin investigating your case, gathering the evidence, and protecting your rights and your future in the process.
As an experienced pedestrian and bicycle accident attorney, we know how to locate and preserve evidence that will help you obtain the compensation you deserve. We work with the investigating officers, your doctors, and your employer to make sure there is a full accounting of the accident, the actions of the driver, your injuries, and your losses. The driver’s insurance company will do their best to assign at least partial blame for the accident to you. By doing our own investigation and discovering all of the details of the accident, we will be able to advocate for you and present all available evidence to the contrary.
Pedestrian and bicycle accidents can leave victims with life-altering injuries. Any long-term care and ongoing medical treatment needs to be factored into your compensation, in addition to all the pain and suffering you have to endure. Initial offers you may receive from the driver’s insurance company may seem reasonable at first, especially if you are out of work or do not have the money to pay your medical bills. But if you sit down with someone who understands how pedestrian and bicycle accident claims work and knows the real costs of your injuries, you will learn that their initials offers are almost always ridiculously low.
If you have been the victim of an accident, you should not be further victimized by a settlement that does not adequately compensate you for your injuries and losses. We will make sure that doesn’t happen to you. Contact Menzer Law Firm or call 206-903-1818 today to schedule your free case review.
