If you’ve been injured in a pedestrian-car accident or a bicycle-car accident, it’s important to seek the help of a knowledgeable personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
Proving liability in your case will likely require thorough investigation, locating witnesses and gathering evidence — all activities that become more difficult as time passes.
You may be able to bring an injury claim even if you are partially responsible for the accident. Victims of pedestrian accidents and bike accidents are entitled to payment for their medical bills and rehabilitation costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and household help if they cannot undertake daily tasks.
Bike accident and pedestrian accident victims usually bring their injury claim against the insurance of the driver and their own medical insurance company.
If the driver was uninsured or underinsured, you may be able to seek compensation under uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage in your own car insurance policy.
