Effective Legal Strategies For Injured Pedestrians And Bicyclists
Walking, running or bicycling in the great outdoors are excellent ways to get fresh air and exercise at the same time. Podcasts, physicians and life coaches champion the advantages of exercise for beneficial brain activity and general physical health. But when motorists have difficulty sharing the road, bicycling and pedestrian accidents can result in catastrophic outcomes. Devastating injuries are often caused by negligence involving:
- Drivers of parked vehicles opening their door into a bicyclists’ riding path
- Speeding or reckless motorists
- Distracted drivers texting while driving
- Intoxicated drivers

Has Your Loved One Died In A Bicycle Crash Or As A Pedestrian?
Walkers, runners and bicyclists are vulnerable to fatal injuries caused by motorists. If your loved one died in a pedestrian accident or bicycle accident, Mr. Rapp can help you understand your right to seek compensation to pay for emergency room expenses, funeral and burial costs, and in some cases, monetary compensation for pain and suffering, grief, sorrow and mental suffering.
Filing a wrongful death claim on behalf of your loved one must be done within two years of the accident which caused the death. Some exceptions apply, so it is best to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
