Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents
"A pedestrian or cyclist is no match for a speeding vehicle. When you or a loved one is struck and injured by a car or truck, I can level the playing field."
- Todd Barsumian
Barsumian Law files claims for people who have been seriously injured crossing the street or riding their bikes. Many pedestrians who are injured are seniors, disabled or children in strollers. A disproportionate number of bicycle accidents involve young people. Because victims of these accidents are often vulnerable, attorney Todd Barsumian pursues financial compensation with great determination.Representing Victims of Bicycle And Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrian and bicyclist injuries can include:
- Bone fractures and compressions
- Concussions and open head wounds
- Injury to the spine or spinal column
- Lacerations and contusions
- Internal bleeding
- Loss of vision
- Wrongful death
Bicyclists are especially vulnerable sharing the road with cars and trucks. When drivers open car doors without looking, bikers either crash into the door or veer into traffic. Many motorists are unaware that the law requires them to share the road.
If our investigation reveals that an injury may be the result of recklessness or deliberate indifference to your safety, Barsumian Law may pursue an award of punitive damages. Unacceptable behaviors include driving while drunk or on drugs, speeding, driving while texting, and failing to stop at clearly designated crosswalks.
If you have been struck by a motor vehicle while walking or biking, compensation for your losses is available. For more information, contact lawyer Todd Barsumian at his Newburgh office today at (812) 490-0820. Calls from both Indiana and Kentucky are welcome.
