Know the points to consider in pedestrian and bicyclist crashes

Think about the number of people who are walking around Stamford on a daily basis. Each one of these people assumes that he or she is going to make it where they are going safely. Sadly, this doesn't always happen. People walking around or even bicycling around can be struck by vehicles.

It is always a sad situation when a motorist hits a pedestrian or bicyclist. This horror of the accident is something that the pedestrian has to live with for the remainder of his or her life. This can be very difficult, especially if there was a serious injury like a spinal cord injury.

One thing that injured pedestrians and bicyclists can do is to seek compensation from the driver who struck them. When they opt to seek compensation, they are sending a message that nothing is going to stop them. They are letting the driver know that the actions leading up the accident were inexcusable.

The factors of the accident might come into the claim for compensation. The driver's actions, such as how fast the driver was traveling, whether the driver was following traffic laws and any distractions the driver was dealing with are going to be included in the case. All of these, as well as the actions of the pedestrian, which can include whether the pedestrian was in a crosswalk, can affect the ultimate outcome of the case.

We know that you might have some questions about what you can do for your case. We are here to help you understand the process and how you can assert your claim for compensation.
