All across Ohio, people enjoy getting outside and appreciate the beautiful natural surroundings the state has to offer. There are many nature trails where people can be found biking and walking when the weather permits. Sometimes people bike and walk throughout urban and suburban neighborhoods, where the chances of an accident increase, especially since they may come into contact with motor vehicles.
At Lafferty, Gallagher & Scott, LLC, our personal injury attorneys help people who have been injured in bike accidents and pedestrian accidents.

Contact our Toledo office to schedule a free consultation today and let us see how we can help you.
Our firm handles a wide variety of bike accident and pedestrian accident claims that result from all types of situations, such as crosswalk incidents and incidents including mopeds and scooters. Whether you are a skateboarder, rollerblader, or roller skater, it is important to know you have rights and protections under the law.
Bikes have the same rights on the roads as cars and trucks. If you have been involved in a bicycle accident we will investigate all the circumstances of the accident. We obtain witness statements, police reports, and any physical evidence resulting from the accident such as the damage to the bike itself. We will pursue any and all potentially responsible parties to maximize your compensation package.
If you have been involved in a pedestrian accident, our lawyers perform the same kind of investigation. Many of these accidents involve children darting into the streets. If the child is under seven no negligence can be assessed to them. If the child is between seven and 14, there is a rebuttable presumption that the child is not negligent.
If a bicycle accident or pedestrian accident takes place in an area where children should be expected, such as a school zone or playground, a higher standard of care is required. If you or a loved one has been injured in a bicycle accident or a pedestrian accident, contact our office to schedule a free consultation today.
