Protecting The Rights Of Bicyclists And Pedestrians

Pedestrians and bicyclists face unique dangers on the road. Without the body of a car to protect them, accidents between pedestrians or bicyclists and other motor vehicles can have devastating impacts. If you or a loved one suffered an accident, our personal injury attorneys at Schweigert, Klemin & McBride, P.C., can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.

Our attorneys have over 100 years of combined experience providing sound legal guidance and supportive representation to our injured clients. From our office in Bismarck, we can assist clients throughout North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and Montana.

Helping You Obtain The Compensation You Need To Move Forward

When you use a crosswalk or designated sidewalk as a pedestrian or bicyclist, you reasonably expect that vehicles on the road will follow the rules to prevent an accident. However, a swinging car door or a distracted driver can cause devastating accidents. Bicycle and pedestrian accidents can cause serious injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, burns, amputations and even death.

Common causes of bicycle and pedestrian accidents include:

  • Illegal obstructions on designated public walkways
  • Drivers failing to yield or observe crosswalks
  • Car doors
  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving

When someone else’s negligence causes your accident, you can file a personal injury claim to recover compensation for your suffering. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may obtain compensation to cover your medical bills, rehabilitation expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, pain and suffering and mental anguish. Our attorneys will work with you to determine the cause of your accident, identify the at-fault party and file a strong claim to win the damages you need to move forward.
