Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents

Each year, thousands of people sustain injuries biking or walking in crosswalks, on streets, in parks and in other locations. Many of these accidents are serious, and some of them prove to be fatal. All too often, pedestrian and bicycle accidents happen because of negligence on the part of a driver or another person.

Identifying the Cause of Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents

The laws governing crosswalks and bike paths can add extra complication to identifying fault in personal injury accidents. If you or your loved one was in a bicycle or pedestrian accident, select an experienced lawyer highly knowledgeable on how personal injury laws are applied to pedestrian and bicycle accident claims.

At Hanaford Law, McHenry County bike accident lawyer Robert Hanaford has decades of experience proving fault in complex personal injury claims. We conduct thorough investigations to identify the cause of pedestrian and bicycle accidents such as:

  • Drunk drivers who hit a pedestrian or cyclist
  • Drivers who fail to yield at a crosswalk or stop at a stop sign
  • Motorists who sped or drove recklessly
  • Drivers distracted talking on a cellphone or texting

We know the law and are prepared to identify fault in bicycle and pedestrian accidents. All of our personal injury claims are prepared with enough evidence to prove fault in trial. Our clients-driven approach often prompts the at-fault party's insurance provider to make large settlement offers and avoid going up against us in trial.
