Pedestrian and Bicycle Accident Injuries Lawyer

Pedestrians and bicyclists often share the roadways with vehicles and are given the right-of-way in many circumstances. Drivers must be aware of everyone on the road and follow the laws to avoid causing car accidents whenever possible. When a driver is distracted, speeding or not paying attention, they can cause serious injuries to those walking or riding their bike. Dwayne L. Brown fights for the rights of those injured in bicycle and pedestrian accidents in Atlanta.

It is common sense that pedestrians and bicyclists are in greater danger if a collision occurs with a vehicle. Drivers have an obligation to be vigilant in areas where they are sharing the road with people on foot or riding their bikes. While pedestrians and bicyclists also have rules and laws to follow, a higher responsibility is put on drivers because of the danger if an accident occurs. When a driver is negligent and hits a pedestrian or bike rider, they may be liable for any injuries they cause.

What To Do If You Are Hit By a Vehicle

If you are at a crosswalk or riding your bike on a roadway and are hit by a vehicle, there is a good chance you will be seriously injured. Lack of protection can cause broken bones, head injuries and other damage to your body. Getting medical care immediately is your first concern, but if you are lucid, get as much information as you can. This includes the name and insurance information from the driver and witness names/phone numbers. Take note of the time of day, weather conditions, the street or location and any other details. Write all this information down as soon as possible, as it may be important to your injury claim in the future.

If you have significant injuries after being hit by a vehicle, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit to obtain compensation from the driver or responsible party. Contact the office of Dwayne L. Brown in Atlanta to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case. We fight to help our clients who are injured due to negligence get the money they need to cover medical bills, therapy, lost work and other expenses.

    Rafiq A.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.
