Reasons You Need A Lawyer After A Pedestrian Or Bicycle Accident
Bicycle and pedestrian accidents often occur in the same locations as other traffic accidents: in county roads, city streets and parking lots. People on foot and those riding bicycles usually have the same rights to the road that drivers of cars and trucks do. What they do not have that drivers and passengers have, however, is the protection of vehicles’ steel bodies in case of a crash.
The force of a car or truck striking a walker, jogger or bicyclist – even at a slow speed – is often enough to cause serious, catastrophic or fatal injuries. The typical severity of injuries to a pedestrian or bicyclist is a strong reason to make legal counsel important. At Law Office of Modoline Altenor, P.A., based in Orlando, you will find the caliber of legal representation that you will need to protect your rights after suffering serious injuries or losing a loved one in such an accident.
