Vehicle versus bike or pedestrian accidents require investigation

Bicycle accidents and pedestrian accidents that involve a motor vehicle are some of the most devastating accidents that occur. The reason for this is simple — pedestrians and bicyclists don’t have the extra protection of a vehicle keeping them safe if they are struck. Instead, the vehicle that strikes them makes direct contact with the person. The person can then fall and strike the ground. We have seen the devastating effects of bicycle accidents and pedestrian accidents that are caused by a motor vehicle driver.

When you are involved in an accident with a motor vehicle, determining the cause of the accident is a primary concern. Many accidents that involve a pedestrian or bicyclist and a motor vehicle are caused by the driver of the vehicle failing to yield the right-of-way to the bicyclist or pedestrian when they should have done so.
