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, roller blader 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 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.
