We Know the Opposition's Tactics
The insurance companies that represent the negligent drivers who cause these accidents have certain tactics that they often use. One of them is to try to avoid liability by pointing the finger at the victim. They will say that the bicycle rider or pedestrian is responsible for the accident because of something that they did wrong.
We know how to fight this tactic. The fact of the matter is that in most cases, the accident was caused because the driver of the motor vehicle did not exercise the appropriate care while behind the wheel. They hit a pedestrian in a crosswalk or a bicyclist riding alongside traffic. They must be held accountable, and our lawyers are here to see that happen.
The Law is Clear in Bicycle and Pedestrian Accident Cases
This is not a particularly unclear area of the law. The opposition doesn't have much grounds to argue that the victim was negligent, because the law clearly explains who has the right of way in different situations. While the insurance companies may certainly try to argue to the contrary, the law says that motor vehicles are required to yield to pedestrians and bicyclists. We know the law and we know how to use the law to build strong cases that get results in pedestrian and bicycle accident cases.
