Injuries to Bicyclists & Pedestrians

Injuries to Bicyclists & Pedestrians

When drivers fail to exercise caution, people get hurt. In 2012, 4,743 pedestrians and 726 bicyclists were killed in crashes with motor vehicles (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Traffic Safety Facts).  Many of these accidents occur at traffic intersections and crosswalks where bicycles and pedestrians have the right of way. If you have been injured by a driver who was violating the rules of the road or otherwise driving in a negligent manner, contact an attorney to see if you may have a basis to recover for your injuries.
