Bicycle And Pedestrian Accidents

More people than ever are walking, jogging and biking in Florida for health benefits, for recreation or for green reasons. Unfortunately, crosswalks and designated bike lanes are just painted lines that offer no protection from a careless or distracted driver.

The Ocala injury lawyers of King Law Firm handle bicycle and pedestrian accidents, from serious and life-altering injuries to those struck and killed by motor vehicles. We have a record of notable recoveries on behalf of injured individuals, both novice and professional, in Marion County and beyond.

Representing Pedestrians And Bike Riders Hit By Cars

Motor vehicle drivers have a duty to proceed with caution in residential areas, business districts and controlled intersections. Unfortunately, many of those drivers are distracted by cellphones, rushing to make deliveries, violating traffic laws or simply failing to see pedestrians and cyclists. Our attorneys have handled every scenario of pedestrian accidents:

  • People run over in crosswalks
  • Pedestrians hit while crossing a highway
  • Children riding bikes in their neighborhood
  • People commuting to work on bikes
  • People cycling for exercise
  • Tourists out for a bike ride

Our attorneys are skilled at countering attempts by the driver or insurance company to blame our client for the accident. We obtain police reports and any video surveillance, and often visit the accident site to talk to witnesses and gather evidence that demonstrates how the driver was negligent or reckless.

Full Compensation For Major Injuries

At King Law Firm, we are familiar with the severe trauma that commonly occurs in pedestrian and bicycle accidents, from broken bones to brain or spinal cord injuries to fatal injuries. We work closely with families, as well as doctors, vocational experts and life-care planners, to detail the economic and personal impact — medical bills, future surgery and rehab, special care, medical equipment or home modifications, lost wages and lost earning capacity, permanent injury or disfigurement, and pain and suffering.

You will work directly with one of our attorneys from beginning to end. We offer a free consultation, including home or hospital visits if you can't come to our Ocala law office. There are no attorney fees unless we recover compensation in a settlement or verdict. Call the King Law Firm toll free at 800-818-4087, or contact us online.
