CAUSES OF BICYCLE/PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS
Bicycle/pedestrian accidents occur as a result of failure of motorists to pay proper attention to the roadway. Alcohol use, cell phone usage, texting, not paying attention, speeding, poor highway maintenance or improperly maintained or designed vehicles are just a few of the reasons accidents happen. Unfortunately the impact can be devastating to you and your family if you are unable to work and earn a living. We understand the hardships that you are facing and will make sure the insurance companies honor their obligations.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
Insurance companies, even your own company, do not always act in your best interest. They are in business to make money. If you have been injured and are now suffering complications from that injury the insurance company will try to deny their responsibility and try to minimize the amount they will pay for your medical care. That’s what they are paid to do. Often that means they will offer nothing or far less than you are entitled to receive, depriving you of compensation to which you are entitled. Your own insurance company may not be paying for what you are entitled to under the policy you have with them. We will aggressively represent your interests and make sure you receive all the compensation to which you are entitled. We understand what you are going through and know how to help.
