Experienced Washington Attorneys On Your Side

When two vehicles collide, they have numerous systems built in for protection. Seat belts, air bags, crumple zones and a protective cage all combine to keep drivers safe. People walking along the street have nothing working to keep them safe. Likewise, someone riding a bicycle might have on a helmet and elbow/knee pads. Unfortunately, these offer little to no protection. Pedestrians and bicyclists often suffer serious injuries, such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Open or closed head wounds
  • Multiple fractures
  • Crush injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Internal bleeding
  • Torn ligaments
  • Damaged cartilage
  • Ruptures to internal organs
