Representing Pedestrians and Cyclists in North Carolina 

People often overlook the dangers that are inherent in traveling on our roadways, particularly in urban areas. Motor vehicles accidents are not the only threat on our North Carolina roadways. Pedestrians and cyclists face a similar risk of accidents and often face serious injuries when they collide with a vehicle on the street. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident as a pedestrian or while riding a bicycle or scooter, you are likely facing exorbitant medical bills and a long recovery. A North Carolina pedestrian accident attorney can help you get the compensation you need to protect your future and rebuild your life. 

North Carolina Law Protects Everyone Sharing the Road

Motorists tend to dominate the road, but North Carolina law recognizes the rights of cyclists, pedestrians, and other users to share our roadways. For example, motorists must yield the right of way to pedestrians while they are in a crosswalk. Similarly, motorists must provide at least two feet of space when passing cyclists. A North Carolina pedestrian accident attorney will identify the specific laws that apply to your case.

Common Injuries Sustained in Bicycle, Scooter, and Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians, bicyclists, and scooter riders are at a much greater risk of suffering a serious injury when involved in an accident. Some of the common injuries our clients have suffered in pedestrian accidents include:

  • Concussions and other traumatic brain injuries
  • Skull fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Severe lacerations resulting in permanent scarring
  • Broken bones
  • Torn ligaments and tendons

These injuries can be life altering, leaving you unable to work, take care of your family, or simply enjoy your day-to-day life. A North Carolina injury attorney can help you move forward and put your life back together. 

What Your Accident Claim May Be Worth

Many accident victims fail to realize the full value of their claim, only to later discover that they can’t pay all of their bills. If you’ve been injured, you may be able to fight for compensation for the following: 

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Other losses directly related to your accident, such as increased transportation expenses
  • Pain and suffering

Your health insurance may cover some of your medical expenses but not your lost income, pain and suffering, or other losses. Our attorneys will evaluate your case and give you a fair estimate of what your case may be worth to help you make important legal decisions.
