Washington Attorney Here To Protect Injured Cyclists And Pedestrians
Although there are designated bike lanes and crosswalks on the road, many drivers are negligent of the fact that they share the road with pedestrians and cyclists, increasing opportunities for road accidents that result in serious injuries. Even a car traveling at only 30 miles per hour can severely injure cyclists and pedestrians during a collision. If you or your loved one has experienced being hit while walking or riding a bike, your life may have been interrupted by unforeseen medical bills and recovery procedures.

Holding Negligent Drivers Responsible
The number of car accidents involving pedestrians and cyclists in Washington has increased. Accident trends point to negligent driving as one of the largest causes. Some examples of situations that can lead to a pedestrian or biking injury include:
- Driving while intoxicated by alcohol or controlled substances
- Aggravated speeding
- Turning right on a red light without yielding to oncoming cyclists or pedestrians
Being hurt in an accident not only leaves devastating injuries, but can also puts your daily life on hold as you face skyrocketing medical bills and maybe even lose work wages due to the time spent in recovery. You do not have to face the financial consequences of your accident alone. If you were hurt by a negligent driver while riding your bike or walking on the street, you may be entitled to a financial compensation through the at-fault party’s insurance. I can help you take on the liable insurance companies and fight for the reimbursement you deserve.
