If you have been involved in an accident with a vehicle while you were on a bicycle or on foot, you have rights. If you were injured in the accident the driver of the vehicle may be liable for your injuries.
Talking to the Office of Stewart M. Cowan is an important step in making sure you get the care and compensation you deserve.
Bicyclists and pedestrians can be very vulnerable to injury when struck by a car. We have handled cases, representing bicyclists and pedestrians for many injury cases, including:
- Dangerous turning and passing by cars
- Disregard of bike paths and crosswalks
- Failure to follow traffic laws
- Dangers in the roadway (potholes, etc.)
- Driver under the influence or careless
Police often report bicyclists at fault when an automobile is involved. You need to know your rights to a proper investigation of the accident and have a lawyer on your side.
The damages you may be able to recover can include the cost of your medical care after the injury, the loss of employment wages, the loss of future earning capacity and the pain and suffering you experienced because of the injury.
