Accident Lawyers For Pedestrians And Bicycle Riders
Suffering serious injuries, losing your mobility or losing a loved one to an auto accident is devastating. Pedestrian and bike accident victims are near and dear to our hearts. Offered little protection against oncoming cars and trucks, people on foot or on bikes are just a step away from catastrophic injury or death.
At Sams, Larkin & Huff, LLP, we hold negligent drivers accountable for striking pedestrians and cyclists. Our Marietta-based injury lawyers have been representing the rights and interests of victims for decades. As former insurance defense lawyers, they know what tactics will be used by insurance companies to minimize our clients’ injury and property damage claims. We won’t stand for it. We will fight for your maximum deserved compensation!
You likely have several options for insurance coverage if you have been injured while walking across the street or riding your bike. Don’t let any insurance company tell you otherwise, and call us before making any statements on the record.
Justice In Your Case
In many cases, motor vehicle drivers have not maliciously injured pedestrian and cycling victims, but they have acted negligently, causing a serious accident and serious injury. In some cases, pedestrian rights of way or cyclists’ road rights have not been respected, and punitive damages might be available if we can prove reckless driving or malicious intent.
Specific injury damages that we will pursue on your behalf in Georgia include compensation for:
- Medical costs
- Lost wages
- Long-term care
- Pain and suffering
- Property damages (e.g., your bike and gear)
- Potential punitive damages
- Other hardships
Injuries occur not only on roads and from moving cars. People are often injured while walking through parking lots, and a common bike accident involves being “doored” by a negligent vehicle driver opening his or her door into a biker’s path while parked on the side of the road.
