Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents

 

Return to Areas Of Practice

 

Quite significantly, bicycle and pedestrian accidents usually involve more extensive injuries than collisions between motor vehicles because the pedestrian and bicyclist are unprotected from the blunt impact of a motor vehicle.
 
The statistics speak for themselves:  According to the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA), there were approximately 66,000 pedestrian accidents in 2006.  Of this number, approximately 61,000 resulted in injury and about 4700 proved fatal.  And pursuant to the most recent data available through  NHTSA, there were approximately 45,000 bicycle accidents across the nation in 2006, of which over 44,000 resulted in injury and more than 700 proved fatal.

If you have been seriously injured or a loved one has been killed in a pedestrian or bicycle accident, you need to consult with an attorney well-versed in the law in these areas.  I have successfully prosecuted hundreds of pedestrian and bicycle accidents on behalf of my clients and can do the same for you.
