Standing Up For Bicyclists And Pedestrians
With miles and miles of scenic countryside roads and paths, the Shelbyville, Frankfort and Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, areas are great places for people to ride and walk for fun and exercise. If you are out for a ride or walk, however, you always need to remember to look out for cars, trucks and other commercial vehicles.
When drivers are unable to share the road, serious accidents and deaths can occur. At Robinson Salyers, PLLC, our lawyers work with injured cyclists and pedestrians in Shelbyville, in Frankfort and throughout the area who are hurt through no fault of their own. We will fight for the maximum compensation you deserve and work with you and your insurance provider to keep your medical costs down so you can focus on your recovery instead of stressing out about money.
Look Out For Reckless And Negligent Driving
After any type of motor vehicle accident, the at-fault drivers often say they didn’t see the other vehicle in time. It is much the same with accidents involving bicyclists or pedestrians. Drivers have to learn to share the road with bicycles, and they always need to look out for pedestrians crossing the street.
We can quickly get to work to determine what the driver did wrong, including:
- Making a left turn in front of oncoming bicyclists or pedestrians
- Driving in a bike lane
- Turning right in front of a bike or pedestrian
- Opening a door in front of an oncoming bicyclist
- Not stopping for pedestrians in a crosswalk
- Driving drunk
- Texting while driving
Our attorneys are skilled litigators who are always ready to take cases to trial when necessary, because they know how the insurance companies work, and they can use this to your advantage.
