Bicycle and Pedestrian Injuries


 

Driver negligence can cause serious injuries to pedestrians

 

As negligent drivers and insurance companies love to point out, bicyclists and pedestrians don’t always follow the rules. Pedestrians and cyclists don’t always wait for lights to turn green before entering intersections, don’t always use turn signals in traffic, and don’t always cross streets at crosswalks. However, even when bicyclists and pedestrians follow the rules, they can still suffer serious injuries due to the negligence or carelessness of car or truck drivers. At Schiffman Firm we listen to all injured people and determine if we can help injured bike riders or walkers even if they have made a small mistake.

At Schiffman Firm, we understand how and why bicycle and pedestrian accidents happen, and we use that knowledge to help victims assert their legal rights. As a firm, we have been helping people in western Pennsylvania to obtain the medical care they need and the compensation they deserve since 1976.

We have obtained substantial verdicts and settlements on numerous occasions. In some cases (where negligent drivers have had insufficient or no insurance), we have also been able to obtain additional compensation through our clients’ own uninsured or underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) insurance policies. In fact, your automobile insurance policy may provide underinsured or uninsured motorist protection and you may not even be aware.medic tending to a bicycle accident
