Bike and pedestrian accidents can cause serious injury

It goes without saying that you can be seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident.

Taking this one step further, you're at even greater risk if you're involved in an accident with a motor vehicle when walking or riding a bike. Here's why: You don't have much, if any, protection.

For example, there is no airbag to soften the blow of the collision. Along with this, there is no seatbelt to keep you in place.

There are many causes of bike and pedestrian accidents. For example, this could happen if a driver is distracted, such as by reading a text message, which leads them to navigate their vehicle into a bike lane.

Another common situation that can lead to this type of accident is neglecting to stop at a traffic light in a crowded city. If this happens, anyone in the crosswalk could be struck by the vehicle.

At our law firm, we understand the seriousness of bike and pedestrian accidents. Not only can these types of accidents lead to serious injury, such as broken bones and spinal trauma, but they can also result in death.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a bike or pedestrian accident, you need to do two things:

-- Receive medical treatment

-- Learn more about your legal rights

Although your health is more important than anything else, you should also take the time to learn more about the accident. You may soon find that the other party was at fault, thus putting you in position to file a claim with the idea of receiving compensation.
