The injuries from bicycle and pedestrian accidents can be serious. The bike rider or the pedestrian has little protection against the weight of a car or truck. The first priority in this or any accident is to get the medical care you need.

How did the accident happen?

When our attorneys and investigators talk to car drivers involved in bicycle or pedestrian accidents, we often hear, “He came out of nowhere,” or simply, “I didn’t see her.” Sometimes they may even be angry that a bike or pedestrian is on “their” roadway. There may be a misconception about the rules of the road.

You have a right to be there.

Bicycles have a right to ride on the road in the direction of traffic. Sometimes a car trying to pass the bike will avoid another car and hit the bike. Pedestrians have the right to cross the road and walk alongside roads. In some cases, there may be liability on the parts of the pedestrian and the car driver. We will talk to witnesses and investigate the accident to determine how it happened.

You focus on healing; we will handle the legal aspects of the case.

Insurance claims can be complex and confusing. The insurance company will be concerned about their liability for your injuries. They may take any statement you make and use it to deny your claim. Insurance adjusters are skilled at getting the answers they need. You need a personal injury attorney in your corner who knows how to protect your interests and speak for you.

If you have been injured in a pedestrian accident or a bicycle accident, our attorneys are ready to talk to you. The initial consultation is free. Our law firm has provided experienced, caring, responsive service in the Merrimack Valley since 1946.
