Full Compensation For A Pedestrian Or Bicycle Accident

The driver and his or her insurance company, and even the police or bystanders, will commonly assign fault or partial blame to the victim. This could potentially prevent recovery of damages or reduce compensation by the percentage of the injured person's comparative fault.

With more than 30 years of experience in motor vehicle accident cases, attorney John Harris knows how to counter this notion. We have used accident reconstructionists and other experts to show how the driver was at fault:

  • Encroaching on a crosswalk
  • Rolling through a stop sign or red light
  • Failing to yield when turning
  • Pulling out or backing up without looking
  • Texting while driving or otherwise distracted
  • Speeding in populated area

We also spend a lot of time with clients to track their medical progress and understand how the injuries affect the victim and the family. Pedestrian accidents and bike accidents often result in brain injury, broken bones, internal injuries or spinal injuries, requiring extensive medical care and rehab. We pursue compensation for all costs of medical treatment or assisted care, past and future income, pain and suffering, and other applicable damages.
