Bicycle accidents can cause severe injuries. Carey Law Firm advocates for the safety of bike riders and pedestrians alike by holding negligent motorists accountable when they cause life-altering injuries.
When drivers strike a bicyclist, they’re punishing those who opt for a faster, healthier, and more eco-friendly means of transportation. In our densely populated area, bicyclists help everyone else on the road by alleviating traffic congestion. However, bicyclists’ safety has not been a top priority among local and state government officials. Each year, bicyclists face many dangers while trying to share the road.
Statistics from the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that approximately 800 bicyclists are killed in accidents in the United States every year. Even more shocking, over 515,000 bicyclists are transported to emergency rooms for their injuries.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a bicycle accident, you have the right to demand compensation for your injuries and pain and suffering. You should not feel guilty for wanting to hold the negligent wrongdoer accountable. If not for yourself, your willingness to stand up could save someone else’s life.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that over 59,000 pedestrian accidents result in serious injury each year. An astounding 4,000 pedestrian accidents result in wrongful death. Over 72% of these accidents occur in urban areas similar to Denver, San Antonio, Austin, Fort Worth, and Dallas. This statistic shows that residents in our area are much more likely to incur injury or death while walking near or on a roadway.
When a pedestrian is struck by a car, tractor-trailer truck, van, or any other vehicle, the significance can be live changing. Pedestrians are at a much higher risk for Traumatic Brain Injury during these accidents. In many cases, brain injuries require a lifetime of care to maintain a reasonable quality of life.
When children are hit by a car the effects can be devastating as children are truly the innocent among us. In fact, 40% of youth fatalities are attributed to pedestrian or bicycling accidents. If your child has been hit by a car, you have rights to pursue compensation for those injuries.
In Pedestrian Accidents – Who is at fault?
Because of the complexity associated with accident scene reconstruction, pedestrian accident can be difficult to prove, unless you have experience in this area of litigation. If a pedestrian was in a crosswalk, or crossing on a walk signal, your chances of success are much higher. However, many pedestrians are hit while attempted to cross a roadway where an established pedestrian crossing is unavailable.
