Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents
Whether walking, biking, jogging or running, if you have been involved in an accident with a motor vehicle, it is important for you to know your rights and how to recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other expenses. Given the lack of protection that walkers and bikers have against motor vehicles, many of the injuries suffered in these accidents can be catastrophic.

Conditions are not always easy for those who are not in automobiles and trucks. Inattentive drivers, some of whom are distracted by cell phones and other devices, may not be attentive at crosswalks or near shoulders where bicycles and pedestrians are traveling. The driver of a car or truck does not have the right of way simply for having a motor vehicle.
Bicycles and pedestrians also have a right to the road and motorists have a responsibility to drive with care and to be aware of others on that road.
