If Arkansas’ roads are to be truly safe, we all have to share them, and in no small part that means driving safely alongside bicycles and pedestrians. Arkansas car accident lawyer Alan LeVar understands that bicyclists have as much right to the road as anyone else, and pedestrians should be able to safely, legally cross busy intersections without fear of a potentially lethal accident.
When you’re riding a bike or walking, you are uniquely vulnerable to the cars driving alongside you. Even if you follow every rule and do everything right, a driver’s mistake can leave you with truly devastating injuries.
Car accident lawyer Alan LeVar is ready to fight for you if you’ve been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence or misconduct. The team at The Law Offices of Alan LeVar can help you pursue justice and compensation for your injury.
If you live in Arkansas, you’ve been hurt in an accident while you were riding your biking or walking and you need an experienced car accident lawyer, please call The Law Offices of Alan LeVar today at (888) 220-7068.
Common Causes of These Accidents
In some ways it’s inaccurate to refer to these incidents as “accidents.” The word “accident” implies something that was inevitable or unavoidable, with no one at fault. In reality, most of the incidents our car accident lawyer handles were far from inevitable, they were eminently avoidable and someone was certainly at fault.
So while there are a number of specific causes for accidents involving bicyclists and pedestrians, the root cause is almost always some form of negligence. Specific forms of negligence include:
- A driver failing to notice a bicycle
- A car turning right without taking the bicyclist’s presence into account
- Running a red light and striking a pedestrian legally in a crosswalk
- Driving while intoxicated
- An unwillingness to share the road with bicycles
- Failure to make proper adjustments for weather conditions
Mr. LeVar and our entire team have experience investigating these accidents, determining cause and proving fault in court.
Compensation Our Arkansas Car Accident Lawyer Can Pursue
Because you have little to no protection while walking or riding a bike, you are uniquely vulnerable in any accident. The injuries pedestrians and bicyclists suffer in accidents with cars tend to be severe, and the resulting financial burdens are heavy.
Our car accident lawyer can usually pursue compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral expenses (in wrongful death cases)
No lawyer can promise you a specific monetary award, and the compensation available to you will be determined by the unique circumstances of your case.
Mr. LeVar and his team will evaluate your case at a free consultation, determine if you have a viable claim and then advise you on the best course of action. Our car accident lawyer cares more about what’s right for you then what’s good for his profit margin.
