Pedestrian & Bicycle Accidents
Get Compensated When Injured Walking or Riding Your Bike
Drivers have a duty to observe all laws and traffic signals giving rights of way to pedestrians and bicyclists sharing the road with them. When they ignore this duty, they can and should be held to account for any pedestrian or bicycle personal injury accidents that result from their negligence.
At Valverde & Rowell, P.C., we represent individuals who have suffered personal injury in a pedestrian or bicycle-related accident. Many such accidents result in catastrophic injuries such as head injuries, back injuries and broken bones. Others can result in wrongful death. Whatever the circumstances of your case, we will listen to what happened to you and seek full and fair compensation for the injuries or losses you have sustained.
What We Will Do Following a Pedestrian or Bicycle Accident
Many pedestrian or bicycle accidents are caused by the failure of other drivers to notice pedestrians and bicyclists, or observe their rights of way. Perhaps they simply did not see a pedestrian in a crosswalk when making a right turn. Maybe they did not check a blind spot when pulling out from a parallel parking spot, hitting an oncoming biker in the bike lane.
Whatever the cause, we are dedicated to helping you as a victim receive maximum compensation for your bicycle or pedestrian personal injuries. We will:
- Gather and analyze evidence in your claim
- Locate and interview any witnesses
- Collaborate with medical specialists, if necessary, to determine the full extent of your injuries
- Build a strong claim and negotiate directly with the insurance company
We prepare every case from the beginning as though it will go to trial in the understanding that this often puts us in the best negotiating position. When necessary, however, our experienced personal injury trial attorneys will pursue maximum compensation in court for your medical expenses, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, and your pain and suffering.
If you were injured as a result of an alcohol-related accident, you may also be entitled additional compensation, called “punitive damages.” We will take steps to investigate whether drunk driving was involved in your case, and aggressively seek justice if so.
Whether you were injured in a crosswalk or while biking within a bike lane on the road, contact Valverde & Rowell, P.C., at (757) 422-8472 to discuss your options with one of our experienced Virginia Beach pedestrian personal injury accident attorneys.
