What Our Biking Injury Attorneys Can Do For You
We'll give your case the immediate attention it requires.
It's important to quickly gather evidence at the crash site and to interview witnesses, especially since police reports are often vague and evidence washes away quickly. Our in-house investigator will collect the information needed to create a strong case for you.
We'll help you get the medical care you need.
Whenever a pedestrian is involved in an auto accident, there are sure to be injuries -- often devastating ones. What defense do you have against thousands of pounds of metal, anyway? If you're lucky enough to survive, you'll likely need serious medical treatment to recover -- we can help you get it.
We'll fight for your pedestrian rights.
It is vital to know your rights as a pedestrian. If you were traveling within the law when you were hit by a car, the person who hurt you is clearly responsible for paying for your injuries. However, it can be tricky to determine your rights.
We'll get you the compensation you deserve.
If you're hit by a car as a pedestrian or bicyclist, medical bills can quickly mount up. Some estimates of what it can cost to get treatment after a serious injury include:
- $1,200 for an ambulance
- $8,000 for emergency room admission, diagnostic tests, treatment and prescriptions
- $36,000 for emergency spinal-fusion surgery
- $50,000 for hospital admission for five days following the accident
- $27,000 for additional spinal fusion surgery
- $12,000 in follow-ups and consultations with specialists and medical doctors
- $6,000 for in-home nursing assistance for one month following release from the hospital
- $14,000 for physical therapy, 3 times per week, for 16 weeks
Unfortunately, it's difficult – if not impossible – to get the driver's insurance company to treat you right, especially if you have thousands of dollars in medical bills. We have years' experience fighting for pedestrian rights, and we'll make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
