Pedestrian And Bicycle Accidents Involving Motorists

Many people use bicycles and walk as their means of transportation. Throughout Florida, there are many walkways, bicycle lanes and areas for pedestrians to travel safely. Accidents involving bicyclists and pedestrians are almost always caused by distracted motorists or motorists who neglect to pay attention on the roadways.

If you have been struck by a motorist in an accident, you deserve to be represented by an experienced lawyer who understands the challenges you face. At Elkins & Freedman, we offer years of experience representing injured victims in personal injury and serious car accidents.

What Should I Do After My Bicycle Or Pedestrian Accident?

There are important steps to follow immediately after an accident. You should be sure to call 911 and get medical attention immediately, especially if your injuries are serious. Call the police and make sure to exchange information with any witnesses who saw the accident. Try to take pictures of the accident scene to preserve any evidence that could quickly disappear.
