When people drive cars, they sometimes develop a mindset in which they only pay attention to traffic that has four wheels and an engine. As gas prices rise and more people choose to walk or bike instead of drive, it becomes more important for motorists to keep track of everyone who uses the road. When they fail, bicycle and pedestrian accidents can cause painful, debilitating, sometimes-fatal injuries.

DWD: Driving While Distracted
Many drivers allow distractions to take their focus away from where it should be: safe driving. Cell phones, text messages, radios, cigarettes, friends — all of these can prevent them from keeping a proper lookout for others on the road. It only takes one or two seconds of inattentive driving to commit an error that leads to a serious bicycle or pedestrian accident.
At Hemminger Law Firm, we will thoroughly investigate your claim, interviewing the driver, the passengers and other witnesses to determine the root cause of your accident.
