We Help Pedestrians And Bicyclists After An Accident

Whether you enjoy walking in downtown Dayton or riding your bike on the many trails in Ohio, dangers are all around you in the form of small passenger cars and large commercial vehicles. While you might be paying attention to where you're going, other drivers might not, which can result in serious — or even fatal accidents.

At The Attkisson Law Firm, LLC, we handle a variety of personal injury claims involving pedestrians, bicyclists and motor vehicles. We know that when a pedestrian or bicyclist is struck by a vehicle, their injuries often tend to be more catastrophic in nature. That's why, in these types of cases, we fight for adequate compensation that takes care of a victim's needs now and down the road.

Did you receive a settlement offer from insurance? Do you want to know if it was a good one? Contact our firm so we can review your settlement offer to determine its adequacy.

When Accidents Happen, We Fight For The Victims

Pedestrian and bicycle-car accidents happen under a number of circumstances, including while entering a crosswalk or while riding along the shoulder of a road. Oftentimes, accidents are a result of negligent motorists who:

  • Are not watching for people walking or riding bikes
  • Change lanes, merge or turn a corner without checking blind spots
  • Fail to yield right of way at an intersection
  • Distracted by a cellphone or passenger in the vehicle
  • Impaired or fatigued behind the wheel

Driver negligence isn't the only cause for pedestrian and bicycle accidents in Ohio, however. Third parties and city and state governments may also be at fault in cases involving:

  • Poor road designs
  • Hazardous or poorly maintained roadways
  • Insufficient crosswalk areas
  • Poorly timed crossing lights
  • A lack of bike lanes or sidewalks for foot and bike traffic

At The Attkisson Law Firm, our lawyers draw experience from more than 40 years of combined service. We know how to identify negligence, properly assess fault, and make sure you are getting the fair compensation you need and deserve.

Attorneys Kevin Attkisson and Matthew Jewson and Richard Gabelman are known for being heavy hitters. They come ready for a fight and fight to win for their clients.

Knowledgeable Advocates Helping Victims Recover

Pedestrians and bicyclists have little protection when on the road. As a result, injuries are often severe, and the recovery requires long-term care.

This shouldn't be a financial burden accident victims have to bear. By seeking our help, we can handle matters for you. We will gather all necessary medical records, reports and other documents that indicate your full need for compensation now and later on.

Our attorneys will also fight back against underhanded insurance tactics that may try to mitigate the amount of compensation you receive for medical bills, lost wages and other related expenses.

We handle injuries that range from minor to catastrophic, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Internal bleeding and organ damage
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Serious lacerations
  • Skin abrasions
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
