Bicycle and Pedestrian Accident Attorneys Serving Everett, Seattle and Northwest Washington
Pedestrian and bicycle accidents can be the most shocking and confusing type of accidents. When a pedestrian or biker is hit by a car they simply don’t have any protection, so these accidents frequently result in catastrophic injuries.

We are committed to helping you obtain maximum compensation for your hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages, pain, suffering and other losses, as well as any additional appropriate damages.
If you have been injured in a pedestrian or bicycle accident, you are probably confused about your legal options. What if the driver’s insurance refuses to cover all of your expenses and losses? Are there other sources of compensation?

Protecting Pedestrian and Bike Accident Victims
Pedestrians and bicyclists are vulnerable in accidents involving motor vehicles. Cars and trucks typically weigh at a minimum 4,000 pounds or more, and they offer the protection of tempered glass, impact absorbing front ends, seat belts, air bags and antilock brakes.
Pedestrians enjoy no protection, and bicyclists have only helmets and visibility enhancing elements like reflectors and blinking lights. When an automobile collides with a pedestrian or bicyclist, the driver is in almost no danger.
To the person outside the car, though, consequences can be severe. Hundreds of pedestrian and bike accidents occur in Snohomish County every year. Dangerous roads such as Highway 99, Highway 2, the Everett-Bothell Highway and Highway 9 contribute to the frequency of these accidents.
If you are a pedestrian or biker who has been hit by a car, we will assist you in obtaining appropriate health care, perform a full investigation of the cause of your accident, and with your doctor and any other necessary medical experts to demonstrate the extent of your injuries and losses.
