How pedestrian and bicycle accidents can happen
Car accidents involving bicycles and pedestrians typically are associated with a distracted driver. For example, a driver may approach a crosswalk while reading a text message or fiddling with the car stereo and strike the pedestrian. In other cases, a bicyclist may be clipped by an inattentive driver who fails to safely pass or slow down for the cyclist.
A pedestrian accident or bicycle accident often involves serious injuries, due to the lack of crash protection. Injuries can include:
- Broken bones and fractures
- Back and neck injuries
- Spinal cord damage, or paralysis
- Brain damage
- Injuries that lead to a wrongful death claim
In bicycle accidents or pedestrian accidents, the insurance company may try to settle the case for less than it's worth, or even shift blame to the pedestrian or the cyclist in an attempt to low ball or deny payment. Never accept an offer made by the insurance company before first talking to an experienced lawyer.
