The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Traffic Safety Facts reported that in 2012, the number of pedestrians and bicyclists killed due to negligent driving by motor vehicle drivers were 4,743 and 726, respectively. These numbers are increasing every year. According to a survey, the reasons behind pedestrian and bicycle accidents are either unawareness or impaired vision. This leads to either severe injury or death.
Pedestrian and bicycle accident laws are framed in order to tackle such situations. Victims must approach a pedestrian and bicycle accident lawyer to file a case against the culprit. As a result, the concerned attorney will help you get fair reparation.
You can file a pedestrian or bicycle accident case if you were injured while crossing the street, jogging, or exercising. Also, if you are finding it difficult to complete your regular tasks because of the mental and physical trauma after the accident, then you are eligible to file a case. You should immediately speak to a pedestrian and bicycle accident attorney to see if you have a claim.
The circumstances vary for each pedestrian and bicycle accident. Each incident should be carefully analyzed. As a pedestrian or bicyclist, there are rules and regulations that are to be followed.
