Bicycle And Pedestrian Accidents: Key Facts

Few accidents cause more serious injuries than those involving pedestrians and bicycles. All it takes is one distracted driver to cause a life-changing accident.

If you were hit by a car, you need a compassionate, dedicated lawyer to protect your rights. That is exactly what you get at the Law Office of Anna L. Burr in Aurora, Colorado. This is a sole-attorney practice, so, if you call my office, you talk to me. If you come in for a consultation, you meet with me. If you have any questions, I will answer them. I have years of experience, and I help you move forward during a complicated and emotional time.

If you were injured or a loved one was killed in an accident involving a motor vehicle, I am on your side. I represent bicyclists and pedestrians throughout the Denver metropolitan area.

Does Your Auto Coverage Apply?

One thing you may not know is that your auto insurance coverage applies injuries sustained in accidents involving motor vehicles, even if you were not driving your vehicle at the time. You or someone in your household may have Med Pay, as well as coverage for uninsured and underinsured motorist (UM/UIM). If the other driver was at fault, you can also file a claim against that driver's liability insurance.

I offer a free consultation to explain your options for securing compensation.

Three Common Accident Causes

As dangerous as bicycle and pedestrian accidents are, they are frighteningly common. One recent study showed that 818 bicyclists and 5,376 pedestrians died in accidents in one calendar year. That's not even counting thousands upon thousands of injuries. These accidents often happen because:

  1. Drivers forget that pedestrians have the right of way in both marked and unmarked crosswalks.
  2. Drivers who are turning may look for oncoming traffic but do not look for pedestrians in the crosswalk.
  3. Distracted drivers may collide with bicyclists or pedestrians.
