The chance of serious injury or death is even greater when a pedestrian or bicyclist is hit by a car or truck. Because of this increased vulnerability, pedestrians and bicyclists have special protection under the rules of the road. Though most pedestrians and bicycle riders do their best to adhere to the law, many drivers don’t properly yield to foot and bicycle traffic or, worse yet, don’t notice pedestrians or bicycles.
If you have been injured or have suffered the loss of a loved one injured or killed by the driver of a car, truck or motorcycle, you may have a case. Find out if you may be able to take legal action.
