Alabama Bicycle Collision Attorney
Pedestrians and bicycles have every right to the roadway. Common sense says that drivers in heavy motor vehicles should give them every courtesy and respect their vulnerability. Unfortunately, many drivers get easily frustrated with the pace of a pedestrian in a crosswalk or a biker moving along the shoulder of the road. Every year, hundreds of injuries and fatalities occur because of negligence on the part of drivers. When the injury happens to a child, the sense of injustice is overwhelming.
If you or a member of your family was struck by a car when you were walking or riding a bike in the Birmingham area, or any community in Alabama, talk to an attorney at the Drake Law Firm right away. We stand up and fight to protect the rights of pedestrians and bike riders injured in car accidents. Often, these types of accidents are the fault of a drunk driver or uninsured motorist and they often turn into hit-and-run accidents, leaving the victim with few options for recovering compensation for damages. The Drake Law Firm is ready to help you stand up and protect your rights. We know the avenues for finding the full and fair money damages your family needs.
We opened our doors in 1998 with a commitment to integrity, honest communication and hard work on behalf of our clients. Today, we have a proud record of numerous significant settlements and jury verdicts, including many verdicts of more than $1 million.
Determining contributory negligence in a pedestrian or bike accident often involves reconstructing the scene and intensive investigation. The responsible driver is often quick to blame the victim for stepping into the road or not obeying traffic signs. We take the extra measures necessary to prepare the strongest case possible for a full settlement in your favor, including hiring independent professionals, when necessary.
We cover the cost of investigating and preparing your case. You will not pay attorneys fees if you don't recover compensation in a settlement or verdict.
We have experience helping people obtain full and fair compensation for all types of car accident injury and wrongful death claims, including:
- Bike and pedestrian accidents
- Hit-and-run accidents
- Intersection, sidewalk and crosswalk accidents
- Parking lot and parking ramp accidents
- Drunk driver accidents
- Accidents with uninsured and underinsured motorists (UIM)
