Standing Up For Injured Bicyclists And Pedestrians
Motorists are required to look out for bicyclists and pedestrians, but all too often fail to do so. Distracted driving, drunk driving, lane violations and other negligent behaviors can lead to serious injuries and even wrongful death. At Jones | Raczkowski | Thomas in Phoenix, we stand up for the rights of people who have been injured in bicycle and pedestrian accidents throughout Arizona. Since 1987, we have obtained millions of dollars for people injured by the careless and negligent actions of others.
Bicyclists share most of the rights and responsibilities of drivers of passenger vehicles. Unfortunately, their rights are not always respected on the road. Many bicycle accidents occur when motorists:
- Fail to yield right of way to the bicyclist
- Crowd the bicycle off the shoulder of the road
- Open car doors in the path of an oncoming bicycle (“dooring” accidents)
- Fail to respect bike lanes
Injured bicyclists have legal rights, and our attorneys are here to protect them. We can help you pursue fair and just compensation for your medical bills, wage loss, bike repair/replacement and other losses.
Traffic laws are designed to protect pedestrians, but all too often, motorists fail to obey those laws. Pedestrians are completely vulnerable in the event of an accident and may suffer fractures, serious head trauma, spinal cord injuries and even fatal injuries. Our attorneys have the skill and experience to handle complex pedestrian accident cases involving catastrophic injuries and wrongful death.
