The Harland Law Firm has had significant success handling both bicycle or pedestrian accident cases. These cases, often involve catastrophic injury, with very little available insurance coverage to compensate for these significant injuries. People generally do not come out of these crashes with just scratches and bruises as the human body does not fare well against cars or trucks that weigh many thousands of pounds. We have dealt with bicycle and pedestrian accident cases involving traumatic brain injuries as well as significant and permanently debilitating orthopedic injuries and our expertise has resulted in significant recovery for our clients whose lives have been forever altered through no fault of their own.
If you or a family member has been involved in a bicycle or pedestrian accident it is imperative that you act promptly as the insurance companies will typically attempt to resolve these cases before you have had the opportunity to seek any legal advice. Often times, adjusters will travel to the hospital to attempt to provide a settlement check in exchange for a full release of the at fault driver, and before the family or victim has had an opportunity to discuss their legal rights with an attorney of their choosing. We have even had situations where an adjuster attempted to leave a check under our client’s pillow while she was in a coma in ICU. If you or a family member have these types of questions or concerns, please contact us as soon as possible, we can help you.
