Put Experience on Your Side Over 25 Years of Protecting the Rights of Injury Victims

Pedestrian & Bicycle Accident Attorney in Peoria

Fighting for the Rights of Severely Injured Individuals

Pedestrians and bicyclists have one major factor in common: both are often moving around, in, or near traffic without the protection of a car or truck body. When a motor vehicle strikes someone on foot or riding a bicycle, the body of that pedestrian or bicyclist takes the full impact of a vehicle weighing two tons or more. Pedestrian and bike accidents often involve double blunt force injuries; the pedestrian or bicyclist, if hit by a car or truck, may strike pavement, a retaining wall, a tree, or the vehicle's windshield. Flesh and bones without protection are no match for steel and concrete. Blunt force injuries and crush injuries are often serious, catastrophic, or fatal.

Recovering Damages in Pedestrian & Bicycle Accidents

Injured pedestrians and bicyclists typically face two challenges: overcoming the odds to improve medically and dealing with financial losses. Due to the extensive injuries typically involved in these types of accidents, pain and suffering can be extreme. Medical treatment often involves hospitalization, surgery, therapy, and rehabilitation. In the case of a fatality, surviving family members are left to grieve and cope with the difficulties that come with the sudden death of a loved one. Suffering that goes on for days or weeks and ends in death can mean massive hospital bills in addition to emotional pain for family members witnessing the decline of the injured person.

Most victims of pedestrian and bicycle accidents are able to seek compensation for:

  • The cost of medical treatment, including initial and ongoing care
  • Lost wages/income from time taken off work to obtain medical treatment
  • Reduced earning ability as a result of severe, catastrophic injuries
  • Pain and suffering, including both physical pain and emotional distress
  • Funeral costs, loss of companionship, and punitive damages, in instances of fatalities

A lawyer who represents an injured pedestrian or bicyclist is most effective when he or she has medical knowledge to complement his or her legal skills. Attorney Brown offers injured individuals and their loved ones reassurance thanks to his scientific background, years of experience, and proven results as an advocate for the injured.
