Pedestrian And Bike Accidents

Did A Car Hit You While You Were Biking Or Walking? We Can Help.

Accidents involving motor vehicles are not always car-on-car collisions on the highway. Unfortunately, cars also sometimes hit people who don't have the protection of a vehicle: bikers or walkers. These accidents can happen anywhere at any time. They can even happen in crosswalks, shoulders and sidewalks, and they can cause massive injuries for the person who was hit. If you or a loved one was injured while riding a bicycle or while walking, you need the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney to help get you the compensation you require to help you recover.

At Liss & Shapero, we take great pride in providing outstanding results to injury victims in Metro Detroit and throughout Michigan. Unlike the insurance companies, we will put your rights first.

Get Help Paying For Your Injuries And Losses

Drivers often don't see pedestrians or bicycles — sometimes because pedestrians and cyclists are smaller than cars, and sometimes because drivers aren't expecting them. This does not excuse the driver when an accident happens, however.

If you're a biker or pedestrian who has been hit by a car, you can count on us to obtain the full compensation to which you are entitled. This includes compensation to help pay for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages

We can seek compensation from a number of sources, including:

  • The driver's insurance policy
  • Your own car insurance policy
  • No-fault benefits
  • Potentially negligent property owners
  • Other third parties who may bear partial responsibility (for example, the car manufacturer)

You Focus On Healing: We Focus On Fighting

Our attorneys take great care to get a clear picture of your injuries before we proceed with your claim. We want to make sure that we ask for the full amount that you need to recover from your injuries while not having to worry about losing money from missed work.

Even if it turns out that you as the cyclist or pedestrian bear responsibility for the accident, we can still find avenues of compensation to help you on the road to recovery. You've already been knocked down by a more powerful adversary; don't let the driver's insurance company bully you into accepting less compensation than you deserve. Talk to us first.
