A pedestrian or bicyclist is no match for a car, truck or bus in the event of a collision. The human body is not designed to withstand the blow of a steel vehicle hitting it at high speed. For this reason, fatalities are particularly common when cars and trucks meet up with pedestrians and bicyclists.
What were the circumstances of your loved one's fatal accident while walking or bicycling along a road or walkway in North Carolina or elsewhere? We often hear of incidents such as those listed below when new clients contact our law firm:
- A car or truck struck a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
- A young woman crossing a busy street to reach Wal-Mart on the other side was struck and killed by a speeding car.
- A bicyclist was hit while riding for pleasure, for exercise, to make deliveries or as a means of commuting from one location to another.
- A pedestrian or bicyclist, injured in a hit-and-run accident, died later in the hospital.
Do not hesitate to contact an attorney even if your loved one was not in a crosswalk, was not wearing a helmet or was in the wrong lane of traffic. The Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd, P.A., offers free consultations that allow us to explain the rights of survivors after fatal accidents. If we accept a case, our goal as in all personal injury claims is to help those who suffered loss as a result of another's negligence recover compensation.
