Kansas City Lawyers Protecting Bicycle Accident Victims

Many people walk or ride a bicycle as a means of transportation. As a result, pedestrians and bicyclists share the road with motor vehicles. Motorists are required to exercise safety and caution when sharing the road with a pedestrian or a bicyclist. Unsurprisingly however, motorists often drive negligently and recklessly and run into pedestrians and bicyclists.

If you or someone you love has been hurt in a bicycle or pedestrian accident, make sure you work with a team of lawyers you can trust to listen to you and provide compassionate, dedicated advocacy to help you get the compensation you deserve.

At Yonke Law LLC in Kansas City, Missouri, we can help. Our attorneys have a wealth of experience representing auto accident victims in claims involving serious injuries and wrongful death. For more than 20 years, we have been successfully fighting for injury victims throughout the area. Our top priority is helping you get the compensation you deserve.

Catastrophic Injury Claims

An accident where a motor vehicle collides with a pedestrian or a bicyclist is more likely to result in severe injury and fatality to the victim than an accident involving two motor vehicles. When a pedestrian or bicyclist is hit by a car, truck or other motor vehicle, the result is devastating. Pedestrians and bicyclists have little to no protection, and what little protection they do have (e.g., helmets, padding, etc.) is no match for a car. As a result, the victim may suffer brain injury, spinal cord injury, paralysis, lacerations and even death.

Many times, a driver who hits a pedestrian or a bicyclist will simply drive away from the scene of the accident in a hit-and-run fashion, leaving the victim lying helplessly in the street or on the sidewalk. In certain instances, the victim will let the driver go without exchanging contact and insurance information, ultimately waiving his or her right to collect damages from the driver.

Our attorneys will discover the cause of your accident, build a strong claim and fight to make sure you receive full compensation, not just for immediate injuries and costs but for the full extent of costs you will face for the rest of your life.

What To Do If You Are A Victim Of Pedestrian/Bicycle Accidents

Personal injury protection extends to pedestrians and bicyclists. If you were hit by a car and injured while you were walking or riding a bike, you have a right to sue the driver of the car for damages. The damages you will be entitled to recover include medical expenses, lost wages, property damages and possibly emotional distress. In order to recover these damages, you need an attorney on your side who will work tirelessly to get you all of the money you deserve, not just the money the driver’s insurance company wants to give you.
