Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents

Skilled Pedestrian and Bicycle Accident Lawyers 

Did you know that you are still able to file a personal injury lawsuit if you have been in an accident even if you weren’t in a vehicle? In fact, there are many ways that you could be a victim of a personal injury accident outside of your vehicle. For instance, you may be walking on a sidewalk and be struck by a person driving their car recklessly. Or, you may be riding your bicycle in a lane designated for bicycles and be hit by a car. There are many different ways you could be involved in a personal injury. Our attorneys help YOU get the right compensation needed to get YOU back on the right track again! 

Ally Law Group Handles a Range of Accidents Involving Pedestrians and Bicyclists

Pedestrians and those on a bicycle could be hurt anywhere that people walk or ride their bikes. From sidewalks and parking lots to your residential neighborhood, there is always a possibility of danger from drivers of cars, motorcycles, buses and trucks hitting you.

Some of the most common reasons for these accidents include:

  • Distracted drivers — Drivers cannot pay full attention to the road when they are using a cellphone or any other electronic device. They may also be distracted by passengers, food or even the button on a car radio.
  • Fatigued drivers — Drowsy driving is nearly as dangerous as drunk driving and results in drivers who aren’t fully focused on the road or the pedestrians in front of them.
  • Intoxicated drivers — The use of alcohol or other intoxicants by drivers frequently leads to serious or deadly accidents.
  • Negligence — Drivers often speed, disregard traffic laws or otherwise operate their vehicles recklessly. In these cases, they may be found to be negligent under the law.

Our attorneys are known as skilled and trustworthy advocates for Personal Injury victims in Orange County and throughout California, and will support you throughout the legal process.

Experienced lawyers understand the severity of pedestrians’ injuries

Those injured in hit-and-runs and other pedestrian accidents may suffer a variety of serious injuries. Broken bones are common, as are injuries to the hands, feet, back and neck. Many pedestrians hit their head during accidents. The head may impact a vehicle, the road or other surfaces. Traumatic brain injuries come in many forms and can range from a minor concussion to serious and debilitating forms of brain damage. Some pedestrians who suffer head injuries lapse into a coma and may never recover. Pedestrians may also be killed when they’re struck by vehicles. At M Law Attorneys, our injury attorneys represent families in wrongful death lawsuits when they have lost a loved one to a pedestrian accident.

How to Protect Yourself and Better Your Case

Once you have been in an accident of any sort, the claims process begins at that moment. It is important to remember some key things if you are involved in a personal injury matter:

  1. File a police report and obtain it for your records
  2. Obtain the contact information for any and all witnesses at the scene of the accident. If you are not able to, have a friend or family member do so if they are present.
  3. NEVER admit that it was your fault!
  4. Do the best you can to write down everything that happened in a timeline fashion so you can refer back to it if you forget minor details in the future. 
  5. See a Doctor! Having a medical professional evaluate the extent of your injuries is very important.
  6. Call a pedestrian or bicycle accident attorney to represent you. Insurance companies like to bully injured victims that are not represented by a lawyer.
