Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable for Hitting Bicyclists and Pedestrians
Certainly nobody intends to hit anyone. Bicycle accidents and pedestrian accidents are the result of inattentive driving, driving too fast for conditions or drunk driving. These are acts of negligence that can cause serious injuries. Negligent drivers should be held accountable, whether the act was intentional or not. At White & Weddle, P.C., our duty is to see that they are held accountable. We are willing to go to trial to fulfill that duty.
We handle cases involving pedestrians hit in crosswalks, on interstates, highways and city streets, bicyclists hit by cars pulling out of parking lots of driveways without looking and other similar situations.
Children Hit by Cars
Many of the bicycle accident and pedestrian accident cases our lawyers handle involve children hit by cars. We have the experience to know that the age of the victim can play a role in how the case is handled, not only in terms of the amount of compensation that needs to be sought, but in terms of the responsibilities of the negligent driver.
These accidents often occur in residential neighborhoods, occasionally near schools or playgrounds. In these areas, drivers have the responsibility to be diligent and watchful, knowing that children may be around. When a child runs out from between parked cars chasing a pet or a toy, drivers in the area should be prepared to stop suddenly. When they are not and they hit the child, they can be held accountable. We prepare cases for trial, ready to go the distance if the insurance company does not want to accept responsibility and provide compensation that may have to meet a lifetime's worth of medical needs.
