Haywood County bicycle accidents can result in serious injuries, especially when a motor vehicle is involved. There are a growing number of bicyclists on Haywood County roadways.
The bicycle accident and pedestrian accident lawyers at Fisher Stark, P.A. have been helping injured pedestrians and cyclists throughout Western North Carolina get the compensation they deserve. The key to maximizing your compensation for your Haywood County bicycle accident or pedestrian accident is to have an attorney who has negotiation and trial skills as well as a good trial reputation.
Pedestrians have absolutely no effective protection against cars or other vehicles, so when pedestrian-vehicle accidents happen, injuries can be fatal. Even though pedestrians have the right of way, many accidents still occur. Impaired driving, distracted driving, speeding and other negligent driving behaviors can cause bicycle and pedestrian accidents. We handle all types of pedestrian accident claims, including the following:
- Crosswalk accidents
- Pedestrian struck by a car, bus, or truck
- Pedestrian struck by falling debris or building
- Joggers struck by a motor vehicle
- Cyclist injuries
It’s important to remember that insurance companies are not there to fully compensate you for your injuries and losses. They are concerned with the best interests of their shareholders. Once you have a personal injury claim open, you become a liability to them. They are interested in ending your claim as soon as possible with as little payout as possible. Our bicycle and pedestrian accident attorneys serve the citizens of Haywood County and we routinely deal with the insurance companies on your behalf.
If you or a loved one has been injured and would like more information regarding your rights as a Haywood County pedestrian or bicycle accident victim, call the attorneys at Fisher Stark today. Let us help you get back to the most important job; getting better and living your life.
