Pedestrian And Bicycle Accidents: We Want To Make Sure You Don’t Become A Victim A Second Time
Like other areas throughout the country where pedestrians and bicyclists share the streets with cars, people in Camden, Burlington and Gloucester counties and in neighboring New Jersey communities who bike, run or walk on or near busy roadways are often injured in serious run-ins with cars and other vehicles.
Perhaps you were hit while trying to cross the street at a busy intersection. Or maybe you were riding your bike and a car merged into you as it tried to make a turn. Regardless of the circumstances, chances are you are dealing with some serious injuries, laid up at home or in the hospital, and in need of some help.
We Know What’s At Stake After A Serious Accident
Instead of trying to handle everything on your own, our team of personal injury attorneys at the law office of Patricia Ronayne, Esquire, P.C., can step in and guide you through every step of the claims process. Our team combines years of experience with a hands-on approach when helping accident victims get the treatment and compensation they need.
Being hit by a car is the top reason for reported injuries to bicyclists, and the third most common reason for injury to a pedestrian. Faulty sidewalks and streets are also contributing factors to many bikes and pedestrian injuries. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2013 more than 4,700 pedestrians were killed in accidents with motor vehicles, and 66,000 people were injured. A similar situation exists for bicycles. There were 48,000 motor vehicle related injuries to bicyclists in 2013, and more than 700 deaths.
How Can A Lawyer Help Me?
When you reach out to our firm, you will have a team of attorneys handling every aspect of your case. Unlike some firms that may talk with you once or twice throughout your claim, we are here for you at each step. We can:
- Accompany you to follow-up visits with your doctor
- Help you schedule appointments with medical specialists
- Investigate the incident with the help of accident reconstructionists, alcohol experts (if applicable to your case) and other industry professionals who can help build your case
- Work with your heath care providers to determine the long-term effects of your injuries
- Negotiate with the insurance adjuster so you can focus on your recovery
- Determine if it’s in your best interests to reach a settlement
- Determine if it’s in your best interests to pursue litigation
- Determine if third-parties contributed to your accident and subsequent injuries
- Pursue full compensation, including money for medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering
Accident claims take time, patience and the resources to properly investigate. At our firm, we always stay one step ahead. From start to finish, we are available to you, ready to answer questions while empowering you to make informed decisions regarding the actions we take.
Ultimately, our goal is to ensure you get the money you need as quickly and efficiently as possible.
