Assisting You In A Bicycle Accident Or Pedestrian Accident

Pedestrian and bike riders must often share the road with cars. This creates a hazard, especially since both cyclists and walkers are unprotected and vulnerable. Sadly, many times these crashes cause serious injury and can be fatal.

At Chris Pettit & Associates, P.C., our attorneys have helped hundreds of both pedestrian accident and bicycle accident victims recover the damages they are due and reclaim their lives. We have helped the families of those who were killed in a car and pedestrian or car and bicycle crash receive compensation and rebuild their lives as well.

The Number One Cause Of Serious Bicycle Crashes

Most bicycle crashes happen because of inattentive drivers. Crashes are also caused by:

  • Aggressive drivers
  • Reckless drivers
  • Drivers under the influence
  • Poorly maintained and unsafe roadways
  • Defective bicycle components such as brakes

Pedestrians can be the victims of hit-and-run, or crosswalk injury. At Chris Pettit & Associates, P.C., our experienced personal injury attorneys get to the bottom of a crash. We investigate the accident. We interview witnesses, examine police reports and then identify what actually happened. We can also determine who the negligent party is.

Ensuring You Receive The Compensation Necessary

We will not only ensure that you receive the medical treatments you need to recover, we will also ensure that you are fully compensated for any property loss or damage, such as your bike or items you were carrying.

The biggest benefit to having an experienced personal injury attorney on your side is that you will not be taken advantage of by an insurance company. Our attorneys will pursue the maximum compensation and, if that is not obtained, we are prepared to file a lawsuit and go to trial. Most cases, in fact nearly 98 percent of all cases, settle before they ever go to trial.

The One Second That Changes A Life Forever

We understand how frustrating it is for professional and recreation cyclists to be injured by negligent drivers. We also know that with pedestrians and cyclists who have been hit, a life can change in one second. Unfortunately the healing process can take months or years. That is why having an experienced personal injury attorney who has decades of experience with these types of accidents is important. The lawyers at Chris Pettit & Associates, P.C., will ensure the compensation you receive is adequate to cover your injuries and long-term rehabilitation, lost wages and possibly pain and suffering.
