Fighting For Injured Cyclists & Pedestrians
Motorists often forget that they share the road with other individuals who are not in vehicles: bicyclists and pedestrians. Though there are laws that protect the rights of these individuals on the roads, drivers often disregard the laws and make mistakes that result in serious injuries to bicyclists and pedestrians.
At the law office of Shollenberger Januzzi & Wolfe, LLP, we are aggressive in our representation of injured cyclists and pedestrians. Our skilled litigators are fluent in the language of the laws that have been established in order to protect everyone on the road. We work to see that negligent drivers are held responsible for the injuries that they have caused.
Contact a personal injury lawyer at our office today. We can determine the cause of the accident, and who is responsible for the injuries that have been sustained.
Though bicyclists are a common sight on most Pennsylvania roadways, motorists are still not giving them the attention that the bicyclists need and deserve. Regrettably, this puts cyclists at risk for serious injuries when accidents occur with negligent drivers. Given that a bicycle does not give the physical protection that a motor vehicle provides, a collision between a bike and car can result in devastating injuries sustained by the bicyclist.
Though pedestrians are protected by a number of Pennsylvania state laws, pedestrians are still in danger on the roads. Drivers are required by law to yield to pedestrians, whether they are in a crosswalk or not, drivers are not taking the time to view their surroundings and are sometimes not seeing pedestrians, or disregarding the laws completely. This can lead to serious accidents and result in permanent injuries or death.
We represent clients who have been injured in pedestrian accidents that occurred for a range of reasons, such as:
- Driver distraction
- Failure to stop at a crosswalk
- Failure to yield to a pedestrian
- Failure to obey traffic control devices or posted traffic signs
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
