Helping Injured Bicyclists, Pedestrians And Motorcycle Riders

Pedestrians, bicyclists and motorcycle riders frequently receive serious and catastrophic injuries during a motor vehicle accident. However, the drivers responsible for causing these injuries often excuse themselves by saying they did not see these individuals on the road prior to the accident occurring.

The lawyers at Jensen Law Group know how to hold negligent drivers responsible for causing such injuries. Attorney John Jensen has been providing personal injury representation throughout all of North Carolina for more than 25 years. He is especially familiar with providing representation to individuals injured in motor vehicle accidents, and understands the long-term consequences of such injuries.

How Serious Motor Vehicle Accidents Occur

It is the duty of every driver to pay attention to their surroundings. When drivers fail to yield the right-of-way to motorcyclists, bicyclists or pedestrians, accidents and serious injuries occur.

There are many instances where pedestrians walking across the streets at crosswalks face injuries due to vehicles failing to stop. These pedestrians are often elderly individuals or small children. There are also frequent injuries occurring because drivers are traveling at too great of a speed through residential neighborhoods and striking bicyclists and pedestrians.

As far as motorcycle riders go, too many drivers do not acknowledge that motorcyclists have the same rights as they do to share the road. These drivers simply will not look out for the presence of motorcycles, and they will change lanes without looking to see if a motorcycle rider is there.

Helping Injured Individuals Recover Compensation

Because of the serious nature of injuries suffered by motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians, it is important to have experienced and aggressive representation on your side. The injuries such victims can suffer include:

  • Brain injuries including concussions and head trauma
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Broken bones and lacerations
  • Loss of limbs
  • Fatal injuries

Besides causing great pain and suffering, these injuries are often permanent. Those facing such injuries likely will not be able to afford the medical expense and wage loss. Unfortunately, drivers who cause such accidents often have inadequate insurance coverage or have no insurance at all to cover the costs.

Throughout our history, Jensen Law Group has handled difficult and challenging personal injury cases. We understand the kinds of compensation required to help victims live with their injuries. Our primary concern is the well-being of those we represent.
