San Jose Pedestrian Accident Lawyers
At the movies, when a car strikes a pedestrian in a cross walk it is generally the pedestrian that is distracted. And in a chase scene a bicyclist is struck by a car there is some degree of comic relief. When these pedestrian and bicycle accidents occur in real life they are generally caused by distracted drivers and often involve serious injuries.

In pedestrian and bicycle accidents, insurance companies make every effort to minimize their exposure. Often they will blame the pedestrian or bicyclists. Other times they will offer a quick settlement before the extent of any long-term damage is known. Never accept an offer made by an insurance company without consulting an experienced accident lawyer.
