Injuries From Pedestrian And Bicycle Accidents

Pedestrians and bicyclists are the most vulnerable people on roadways. Without a vehicle to protect them, individuals often sustain serious injuries or are killed when they are hit by a car or truck. Individuals who are hit while walking or bicycling often face an uphill battle recovering the compensation they need after an accident.

If you were injured or a loved one was killed in a pedestrian or bike accident, it is critical that you protect your right to recover. Before providing an insurance company with any sort of statement, talk to an attorney at Dozier Law Firm, LLC, in Macon or Savannah. We have been helping clients throughout Georgia and the Southeast get the compensation they deserve since 1996.

Why You Should Not Trust Insurance Companies

Insurance companies are not looking out for your best interests. They are looking out for theirs. They answer to shareholders and it unfortunately is the injured person or the family of an individual killed in an accident who suffer.

In an effort to avoid payment, insurance companies will often try to avoid payment or minimize the claim value to save money. It is not unusual for insurance companies to often try to pin the blame for the accident on the pedestrian or bicyclist who was hit in an effort to minimize or deny the claim altogether.

Bicyclists And Pedestrians Are At Risk For Injury In Savannah And Macon

The antebellum architecture of Savannah makes it an attractive town for walking and bicycle tourists alike. This walking town also makes individuals vulnerable to bike and pedestrian accidents.

Macon has one of the highest pedestrian fatality rates in the state. According to the Georgia Department of Public Health's Injury Prevention Program, which studied pedestrian fatalities over a four-year period, Macon pedestrians suffered an average of 3.86 fatalities per 100,000. That is more than twice the statewide average.
