Brandon Bicycle & Pedestrian Lawyer
Holland & Lamoureux understands bicycle riding is an enjoyable sport, and also understands it is can be dangerous because of the risk of getting hit by a car.
According to national data collected from hospital emergency rooms, every year there are over half a million injuries associated with bicycles.
Even more sobering, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that a bicyclist is fatally injured every 6 hours, and nearly half of all the people killed in bicycle accidents are children under the age of 16.
Many bicycling accidents are caused by the pure negligence of others. Any cyclist knows that the main traffic risks come from three sources: reckless, belligerent or blindsided motorists; swinging car doors; and jaywalking pedestrians. Cyclists must somehow be alert to these dangers while simultaneously keeping a close eye on the pavement for potholes, metal plates and other ground-level hazards. Because of the detailed nature of bicycle accident claims, seek the assistance of the experienced bicycle accident attorneys of Holland & Lamoureux as soon as possible to immediately begin protecting your rights.
The most common type of serious pedestrian accident is that involving a negligent motorist. Well over 5,000 pedestrians perish at the hands of negligent automobile drivers. Another 78,000 victims are seriously injured in car or truck accidents—often the fault of the automobile driver. Countless pedestrians are seriously injured in non-vehicular accidents each year. These may be attributed to defects in sidewalks or parking lots, poor property maintenance, construction-related accidents, or harmful debris or materials on public walkways.
