Auburn Bicycle Accident Attorneys
Sacramento Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
Crosswalks and sidewalks are intended to be safe places for pedestrians, including walkers and joggers. Roads are meant to be shared with bike riders, who have every bit as much right to use them as motor vehicles. Unfortunately, negligent drivers frequently fail to observe the rights of bicyclists and pedestrians, leading to serious accidents. At Frank Law Group, P.C., we are committed to holding negligent drivers accountable for bicycle and pedestrian accidents.
If you or a loved one has been hit by a car while walking, jogging or riding a bike, we can help. Our attorneys have the skill and experience to pursue the compensation you deserve.
Representation From a Former Insurance Defense Attorney
Compensation in bike and pedestrian accident cases is supposed to come from the negligent driver’s insurance company, and that compensation is supposed to be fair. The insurance company will make an offer in an attempt to resolve your case early before you appreciate its value. It will be tempting to accept that offer, considering the financial stresses that arise after a serious accident. However, we encourage you to decline the offer. These settlements often leave people without the ability to cover future costs and are typically far less than you deserve.
We know all about insurance companies and the tactics they use in crosswalk injury and bicycle accident cases, because our lawyers were previously employed by these companies. Now, we use our knowledge to find the most efficient and effective way to get you fair compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other costs, including damages for pain and suffering.
Who to Talk to After a Bike or Pedestrian Accident
Of course, it is important to get the contact and insurance information of the driver who caused the accident. If there were witnesses, their contact information should be gathered as well. However, if someone requests that you make a recorded statement, you should say no. Refrain from discussing fault or admitting a lack of injury at the scene because the shock of your involvement in the incident may affect your ability to perceive injuries at the scene. This is information that can be used against you, preventing you from getting the compensation you deserve.
The most important person to talk to is a California personal injury attorney. There is no financial risk, because you pay no fee for our services unless we recover money for you.
