What are some of the top careless actions by drivers?

People walking in crosswalks or near traffic sometimes get struck by motor vehicles because the driver is negligent in some way. The following are a few top careless or reckless driving behavior we see when handling pedestrian injury claims:

  • Distractions, including texting while driving
  • Speeding
  • Aggressiveness
  • Drunk driving

How common are bicycle accidents in California?

All too common. There are a hundred or so bicycle accident deaths in California each year. Often, bicycle accidents happen because motorists fail to appropriately share the road; they may block bicycle lanes or leave an inadequate amount of space when passing cyclists. Because bicyclists have little protection against impact, they can be severely injured in the event of an accident.

What are typical pedestrian or bicycle accident injuries?

Injuries caused by bicycle and pedestrian accidents can be severe. That’s because cyclists and pedestrians have almost no protection against accidents involving cars, trucks and motorcycles. Some of the most common – and often most serious – injuries we encounter include:

  • Broken bones
  • Head injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)

Any of these injuries – and even ones not listed here – can upend your life. You may be unable to work and collect a paycheck. You may need expensive medical treatment, including prescription medication and physical rehabilitation. Insurance companies may not take into account many of these costs. Brian and his team will fully evaluate your claim and fight hard to make sure you receive full compensation for your injuries.

What should I do if I’m involved in a bicycle or pedestrian accident?

The first thing you need to if you are struck by a car or truck while a pedestrian or while on a bicycle is to make sure you are OK. Seek immediate medical attention as soon as possible.

Next, contact the police (or ask someone else to call 911) and tell them you or a loved one has been injured in a bicycle or pedestrian accident. The police officer will respond and create an official accident report, which can be used to support your injury claim. The Law Offices of Brian Brandt can obtain this report for you, free of charge.

Then, call us. We can contact the insurance company and deal with all the other red tape so you can focus on what really matters – your health.
