The Causes Of Pedestrian Accidents

One of the foremost causes of injuries to pedestrians is drivers failing to check crosswalks. For example, drivers may look for oncoming traffic before taking a left turn, but they may forget to look at the crosswalk. They may take a left turn into a pedestrian who has the right of way. Another common issue is drivers pulling into or out of parking lots and hitting pedestrians who are walking on the sidewalk in front of the parking lot. Whatever the case may be, we will take action to get you compensation for medical bills and other costs.

The Causes Of Bicycle Accidents

Bicyclists have the same rights on the road as drivers of cars in Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire. Unfortunately, drivers often fail to acknowledge those rights. They crowd bicyclists, forcing them to collide with parked cars. Sometimes it is the parked cars that are the problem. A common cause of bike accidents is car doors being opened in the path of the bicyclist. Bicycle accident cases can be complex, because the driver of the car may not know he or she caused an injury, because there may have been no actual collision. We have the experience to handle these cases, as well as hit-and-run accident cases. No matter how challenging your case may seem, we can help.
