Charles Bryan Alred, PC
Pedestrian/Bike accidents happen more than you think. The driver of a car or truck is encased in a protective shell of metal. As a pedestrian crossing the street the biker riding along the shoulder, you are not. Any time a pedestrian is hit by a car, serious injuries are likely. Bike riders are exposed to danger from distracted drivers, with dire results. As an Oklahoma attorney who has been in practice for more than 25 years, I have often seen what can happen.
Cars and other motor vehicles are expected to respect the rights of bicyclists and pedestrians. When they fail to yield, they can be liable for damages for the injuries they cause. When they are inattentive and hit a child on a bike or a parent pushing a stroller, they are responsible for compensation. Their insurance companies will fight a suit or settlement. I will fight back.
Common bicycle and pedestrian accidents include:
- Being “sideswiped” by a motorist
- Being hit by a car who fails to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians or bikers
- Being knocked off a bike by a motorist or hit by the vehicle’s side mirror
- Being struck while in a designated crosswalk
- Being hit by a motor vehicle while the driver is having a cell phone conversation or is otherwise distracted
Any of these can cause injuries ranging from broken bones to serious brain injuries, or even a fatality.
