Bicycling, running and walking can be a great way to exercise and increase your fitness or can be done just for fun. All three types of physical activity provide an excellent cardiovascular workout for your body.
However, these activities can be dangerous due to the negligence of some drivers of automobiles who are distracted, not paying attention or fail to keep a proper lookout for persons on foot or on two wheels. With mobile phones, iPods, radios and noisey children in the back seat, drivers of automobiles can pose a danger to a pedestrian or person riding a bicycle. The automobile provides protection to its occupants, but a bicycle or pedestrian does not have the same protection. Serious injuries and death can be the result if you are involved in a automobile-bicycle/pedestrian accident.
If you have been injured by a motor vehicle while riding your bicycle or on foot as a pedestrian, your medical bills for your injury and lost time from work can all accumulate and adversly impact your financial stability thereby causing hardship for you and your family. Many insurance companies teach their adjusters to offer as little as possible for your personal injury claim in order to maximize their profits. Insurance adjusters often try to make the assertion that the bicyclist or pedestrian was partially at fault for the accident, when, all too often, it is the driver of the automobile who was not paying attention and is the one who caused the accident.
If you have been injured in a bicycle/pedestrian accident, your injuries can be severe and may include lacerations/cuts, broken bones, head injuries, or ligament damage.
