Our attorneys understand bicycle and pedestrian accidents and will ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

Bicycle and pedestrian accidents can result in horrific and catastrophic injuries. In fact, the victims often struggle with such severe injuries, they are completely unable to handle their own affairs. When an injury leaves a pedestrian or bicyclist struggling with basic life tasks, it is crucial to engage legal counsel who can skillfully handle the case and fight for compensation.
At Ellis & Associates, we recognize that such accidents require precise handling to document the cause of the collision, the evidence at the scene, and the statements of witnesses. Proper reconstruction and knowledge of the laws pertaining to our roadways, sidewalks, and crosswalks may be crucial to the outcome of the case. In many bicycle and pedestrian accidents, the police department will assign fault without a thorough investigation and reconstruction. Even if the police do conduct a thorough and proper investigation, their conclusions may not be admissible in court. Our talented attorneys can begin work on the case early in the process, conducting a thorough investigation that examines the facts and takes into consideration the perspectives of injured victims who may not be able to speak for themselves.

Work-Related Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents
In many cases involving the catastrophic injuries of pedestrians and bicyclists, the collision occurs while the pedestrian or bicyclist is carrying out a task for work. In such cases, a workers’ compensation claim may be available, but this valuable source of compensation is often overlooked by families focused on the negligence of a driver or another party. However, if a workers’ compensation claim is not filed within a certain period of time, the victim may lose valuable legal rights. And in cases involving death, very specific legal documentation must be filed to preserve the rights of the deceased worker’s dependents.
