Pedestrian, Bike, Car Accidents

Every year, motor vehicle accidents kill approximately 5,000 pedestrians. More than 75,000 people suffer injuries from being hit by a motor vehicle. Accidents between motor vehicles and pedestrians usually occur when the pedestrian is trying to cross the street, walking on the shoulder or walking on the sidewalk. Often, accidents between motor vehicles and pedestrians or bicycles are the result of negligence. Regardless of who is at fault, the injuries that result from accidents between motor vehicles and pedestrians or bicycle riders are usually severe.

If you have suffered injuries because you got hit by a motor vehicle, call the experienced personal injury lawyers at Alonso Krangle, LLP. We are here to help you navigate the complex world of insurance companies and litigation. Our goal is to secure a fair outcome; one that accurately reflects the value of your injuries and suffering.

What are Some of the Most Common Types of Accidents that Occur Between Bicycle Riders, Pedestrians, and Motor Vehicles?

As personal injury lawyers, we see a variety of clients involved in motor vehicle accidents. When accidents occur between pedestrians, bicycles, and motor vehicles, they usually happen in scenarios similar to these:

  • The driver of a motor vehicle goes through a red light, hitting a pedestrian or bicycle rider in an intersection
  • The driver of a motor vehicle turns at an intersection while pedestrians are crossing the street
  • The driver of a motor vehicle loses control of their motor vehicle and hits a pedestrian on the sidewalk
  • The motor vehicle driver turns while a bicycle rider is in his or her blind spot, hitting the rider
  • The motor vehicle driver does not stay in his or her lane, hitting a pedestrian or bicycle rider on the shoulder of the road
  • Pedestrians cross against traffic putting themselves in danger of oncoming motor vehicles
  • Motor vehicles hit bicycle riders when bicycle riders weave in and out of traffic, ride on the wrong side of the road, get dangerously close to motor vehicles, and ignore traffic signals

Injuries from Pedestrian, Bicycle and Motor Vehicle Accidents are Serious

Injuries that occur during an accident between a motor vehicle and pedestrian or bicycle rider are often some of the worst we see. Why? Because pedestrians and bicycle riders have no protection against the weight and speed of a motor vehicle. A bike helmet does little to help when a 2-ton motor vehicle is coming at you. Even if a motor vehicle is driving slowly, an unprotected person, when hit, can suffer severe injuries.

The following injuries frequently result from accidents between motor vehicles and pedestrians or bicycle riders:

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)

TBIs result from a severe blow to the head or body. TBIs usually result in brain dysfunction of some type. The damage to the brain can be minor or severe, but both can have lasting medical and emotional consequences for the victim and his or her family.

Broken and Fractured Bones

Broken arms, legs, hips, and ankles are common injuries when you are hit by a motor vehicle. Most of these injuries are treatable but can cause pain and quality of life issues for years.

Spinal Cord Injuries

The force of a motor vehicle with a pedestrian or bicycle rider can cause vertebrae in the spinal cord to tear, dislocate, or break. Any damage to the spinal cord can cause problems such as pain, loss of function, and paralysis.

Amputations

Pedestrians and bicycle riders often suffer such severe injuries from being crushed, pinned or hit that they require amputations of limbs.

Soft Tissue Injuries

These include bruises, sprains, dislocations, cuts, and more. Such injuries may resolve with little medical intervention. However, soft tissue injuries can impact the ability to work and perform every-day tasks due to pain, swelling, and scarring.

Death

Because they have no protection, pedestrians, and bicycle riders who are hit by motor vehicles are more likely to suffer fatal injuries than other victims of accidents.

Emotional Injuries

Physical injuries can result in pain and suffering. Emotional injuries can also cause victims of accidents to suffer. The emotional trauma from a motor vehicle accident can cause anxiety, stress, depression, and a lifetime of problems for the victim.

Collecting Damages for Your Injuries

If you have been in an accident, you may be able to collect damages to compensate you for your injuries. You can file insurance claims or lawsuits to collect some of the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Medication costs
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Emotional Trauma
  • Therapies

Know that it can be complicated to navigate a claim while you are recovering from your injuries. It can also be intimidating “going up” against a big insurance company. Their goal is to settle your case for as little money as possible. Don’t settle for less than you deserve. Consult with our lawyers at Alonso Krangle, LLP to ensure your case receives the attention needed to secure a fair outcome. Whether you want to settle your claim for a fair amount or litigate in court, our lawyers can provide you with passionate, skilled representation.

We were very fortunate to meet David Krangle
My husband and myself had been involved in a multiple vehicle accident 5 years ago. At that time we were given the name of Mr. David Krangle, attorney. It took close to 5 years of very diligent work for Mr Krangle to complete our case to everyone’s satisfaction. During those years of endless hours and hours of work that he put into our case yet whenever we reached out to Dave (as the years allowed us to call him) he was always available to us. His patience did seem endless. His professionalism in researching everything to make our turnout perfect for us was everything we expected and let us rest knowing things are following the right path. I know we were treated with the utmost respect from various insurance companies and other attorney’s because that was something Mr Krangle made sure of. In difficult times it can be intimidating to work with a professional but we were very fortunate to meet David Krangle who had the ability to share warmth and compassion with us during a trying time. Those are traits that we admired in David Krangle and are delighted to have worked with him.

Absolutely Instrumental in Helping Me Expose Medicare Fraud That My Former Employer Was Engaging In
When you have to fight Goliath you better call David. Dave was absolutely instrumental in helping me expose Medicare fraud that my former employer (one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world) was engaging in. Dave took the time to listen to my concerns and my evidence. He worked tirelessly to bring the best resources to table so that our case would be investigated thoroughly and prosecuted. In the end, the Goliath was defeated thanks to Dave!

You’ll be in good hands!

I was involved in an accident and needed a good Personal Injury Attorney. A friend referred me to David Krangle of Alonso Krangle LLP. After my initial phone conversation with David, I was confident that I found the right Attorney. David was not only extremely thorough, he kept me updated on every stage of my case. Most importantly, he was always available for questions and followed-up promptly. In most cases, the same day. Since there was a 3-hour time zone difference, I was very appreciative from a client stand point.

With his expertise and guidance, I had a successful outcome. I felt very fortunate that David and his wonderful staff represented me.

If you ever find yourself in need of expert legal advice and guidance. I highly recommend you contact David Krangle of Alonso Krangle LLP. You’ll be in good hands!

Dave Krangle Worked Restlessly On This Case Until We Won
I consider David Krangle as my attorney for many years now. Going back about 13 years ago my father was involved in a hit and run accident. David had gone the extra mile to win our case….. Mr. David Krangle worked restlessly on this case until we won the case. Since then, if anybody asks for a good attorney I recommend David Krangle with confidence. He has helped a number of my friends and relatives and they all appreciated his professionalism, prompt responses to any inquiry during case development, careful study of all details pertaining to their case. He treats his clients as family. Thank you, Mr. Krangle, wishing you a continued success, good health and prosperity.

Strongly Recommend Alonso Krangle As a Highly Experienced And Respected Firm

I consulted a close friend and well respected lawyer in the mid-Atlantic region regarding my hip revision surgery due to a medical device recall. Without hesitation, he strongly recommended contacting Alonso Krangle LLP to discuss my case. In his view, Alonso Krangle possessed extensive knowledge and experience in the type of litigation my case required, as well the respect of those throughout the judicial field for their professionalism. Equally as important, their personal focus on each individual’s case gives the client a feeling they are their only concern. My friend’s assessment could not have been more accurate.

Although in New York, Alonso Krangle could not have been more responsive or accommodating if they were located here in Virginia. I cannot recall a single time when my wife or I called their office and did not speak to either Andres Alonso or David Krangle. They were always completely available and ready to answer any and all of our questions. Their advice and recommendations were always honest, sincere, and accurate enabling us to plan accordingly. Legal proceedings can be a long process, but we never felt left out or forgotten thanks to timely updates initiated by Alonso Krangle. In the end, everything turned out as Alonso Krangle estimated from the beginning. I could not have expected better personal attention or concern from a family member handling my case. As with my friend, I too, would not hesitate to strongly recommend Alonso Krangle as a highly experienced and respected firm that will treat you like family.
