Commuting on foot or by bicycle has become more and more popular among the health- and Earth-conscious crowd. Unfortunately, commuting by foot or by bicycle can be dangerous because drivers can easily become distracted and pedestrians and cyclists have no protection in an accident.
A brisk walk or invigorating bike ride can put a whole new spin on the day. Unfortunately, it can also put the cyclist or walker in harm’s way. Technological advances have made cars easier to drive and, as a result, many drivers pay less attention while driving. Cell phones and GPS devices distract drivers even more. The result is a much more dangerous environment to walk, jog, or ride your bicycle. Now, more than ever, your rights matter.
If you’ve been hit while walking or cycling on a public street, you deserve compensation for your injuries. Experienced personal injury trial attorney Lance D. Youd can help you navigate the legal issues and protect your rights when you’ve been hurt in an accident.
