Representing Bicyclists And Pedestrians Injured By Cars

Much of the West Valley has been developed with wider sidewalks and bike lanes to encourage cyclists and foot traffic. Unfortunately, bike-friendly design does not always translate to bike-friendly drivers. Bike and pedestrian accidents have risen as Avondale, Goodyear and surrounding communities have expanded.

Sometimes motorists don’t see pedestrians and bike riders until it is too late. In many cases, there is additional negligence such as speeding or texting while driving. At Faith, Ledyard & Faith, PLC, we hold drivers accountable for the serious or catastrophic results when bicyclists or pedestrians are struck by motor vehicles.

Our Avondale, Arizona, law firm handles personal injury and wrongful death cases in the West Valley and the Greater Phoenix area and throughout Arizona. Call us at 623-806-8994 for a free consultation.

Experienced Pedestrian Injury Lawyers

Intersections, driveways, parking lots, school crossings, narrow shoulders — these are just some of the danger zones for people on foot or riding on two wheels. The pedestrian or bicyclist often has no time to react or get out of the way of a vehicle.

Our personal injury attorneys know how to investigate pedestrian and bike accidents to establish liability. We work quickly to preserve evidence, talk to witnesses and, if necessary, reconstruct the circumstances that led up to the crash. Although motorists often blame the victim, we work to prove that the driver was at fault:

  • Speeding or driving aggressively
  • Distracted by a cellphone
  • Failing to yield when turning
  • Making illegal turns
  • Running a stop sign or traffic light
  • Drifting into a designated bike lane
  • Backing up or pulling out without looking

Maximizing Compensation For Serious Injuries

Pedestrians and cyclists are extremely vulnerable to severe injuries. Even a helmet offers little protection against a 2-ton car. Typical injuries include spinal cord injury, brain injury, broken legs and other fractures, facial and dental injuries, lacerations, road rash and other lasting injuries. Many victims, especially children, also suffer tangible emotional trauma.

We work with many professionals to ensure that clients are compensated for ongoing medical needs, special care and lost income, plus appropriate damages for pain and suffering and any disability or disfigurement. We are prepared to go to trial when necessary to get justice.
