No Time To Lose — Call Immediately For A Free Consultation

After an accident, valuable evidence is often cleared away quickly and witnesses become less willing to help, harder to locate, or forget details with the passage of time. Contact us at 818-227-8610 for an explanation of your rights.

Proving Fault For Pedestrian And Bicycle Accidents

Bicyclists and pedestrians become injured when inattentive motorists:

  • Make a rolling “stop” or turn right without looking
  • Turn without yielding the right of way
  • Sideswipe, tailgate, or cut off the cyclist
  • Speed, making unsafe lane changes, or illegal U-turns
  • Back up or pull out without looking
  • Commit road rage

Careless drivers who caused an accident may claim that the injured pedestrian or bicyclist was really to blame. False claims or lame excuses such as “He wasn’t in the crosswalk,” “She entered the intersection on a red light,” or “She was riding in the wrong direction, so she is the one who caused the accident” is sometimes used by negligent motorists and their insurance companies in an attempt to avoid or reduce financial liability for another’s personal injury losses. We recognize such gamesmanship for what it is and aggressively pursue evidence that supports the truth — evidence which ultimately increases the financial value of your case.

Demonstrating Damages To Help Bicyclists And Pedestrians Struck By Cars

Pedestrians and bicyclists are very vulnerable when they are involved in an accident with a moving vehicle. Some of the injuries that result from such accidents include but are not limited to:

  • Broken bones, and hip, elbow and leg injuries
  • Broken wrists and arms from breaking one’s fall
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Facial and dental injuries from a “face plant”
  • Lacerations, road rash and scarring
  • Catastrophic injuries (traumatic brain injury, paralysis, amputation)
  • Wrongful death

In order to get our clients the best value for their personal injury claims, we aggressively pursue the responsible party, monitor our clients’ medical treatment and loss of earnings, and consult with their doctors, accountants, and other experts. We do this so we can help our clients make informed decisions about their present and future medical condition prior to settlement, as well as the financial losses they have or may expect to incur as a result of their injuries.

The costs of future medical care, lost future earnings, long-term disability, and lifelong pain and suffering can be staggering. It is imperative that if you or someone you love is seriously injured that you have experienced attorneys like Avila and Shaddow on your side to help you make an informed decision regarding your case’s value.
