Riding a bicycle can also be a risky endeavor, especially along busy stretches of road.

Fighting for Our Clients Rights in White Plains

Pedestrian and bike accidents can happen to anyone. Unfortunately, even if you are fully aware of your surroundings and behaving safely, others around you may not be so responsible. While these types of accidents can happen for almost countless reasons, some of the most common causes of pedestrian and bicycle accidents occur due to:

  • Distracted drivers: The issue of distracted driving continues to be a major problem in New York and Connecticut, as well as the rest of the country. Drivers who are distracted by their phone, GPS, radio, or passengers can put the lives of bicycle riders and pedestrians in danger.
  • Traffic violations: Drivers who are speeding or otherwise not following traffic laws may not have time to react quickly enough to avoid colliding with a pedestrian or cyclist.
  • Drunk driving: Drunk driving remains a major threat to pedestrian and cyclist safety.
  • Pedestrian or cyclist error: Oftentimes, the fault for an accident does not lie with just one party. For example, a pedestrian may not be paying attention to his or her surroundings when crossing the street when he or she is hit by a speeding motorist. It is important to remember that even if you were partially at fault for your accident, you may still be able to pursue compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.
