Injured Walkers And Bikers

You Don't Have To Be In A Car To Get In A Car Accident

People driving motor vehicles aren't always paying attention or watching out for those traveling by bike or on foot. And it's not just jaywalkers or bikers riding in traffic who end up injured — cars hit pedestrians in crosswalks and bikers riding in bike lanes, too. Some pedestrians have even been hit while walking on the sidewalk. However your accident happened, if you've been hit by a car, you've been in a motor vehicle accident. You just didn't have the benefit of the protection of a car.

Injuries Can Be Severe Or Fatal

It's no surprise that pedestrians or bikers suffer the worst consequences when hit by a car. The impact of the collision, coupled with the mass of a car compared to that of a human body, means that walkers or bikers could suffer broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injury or even death. Those who survive these types of accidents could face a long, uncertain and expensive recovery. It's essential to speak with a lawyer if you or a loved one has been injured in such an accident. In Nashville, Tennessee, our knowledgeable legal team at Witherington Law, PLLC, can ensure you get the strong legal advocacy you need to help you access the compensation from the responsible parties.
