Pedestrian & Bicycle Accidents
Florida Injury Lawyer: Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents
As more and more drivers hit the road, there are more incidents of drivers being drunk, impaired or distracted while driving. Unfortunately, these drivers must also share the road with walkers, joggers and cyclists. When a driver hits an innocent pedestrian or bicyclist, the injuries can be devastating.
Adding insult to injury, victims are told by friends or unscrupulous adjusters, that they do not have insurance. At that point, many people just give up any hope of filing a claim.

Proven Success in Complex Pedestrian Accident Injury Claims
Florida personal injury attorney Tom Chase just recently concluded a pedestrian accident claim where a young girl carrying a large musical instrument was crossing the street in a crosswalk. The driver who struck her failed to see the girl and crashed into her, fracturing her pelvis in four places. Her injuries caused permanent damage, and will require a c-section if she ever has children. Her family was told there is no case simply because she lacked insurance coverage and was allegedly in violation of a traffic law. Through successful negotiations with the driver’s insurance company, however, attorney Tom Chase made a substantial recovery for the young lady.
With nearly 30 years of legal experience, Tom Chase understands the many issues that may arise in a case involving a bike crash or pedestrian accident, such as:
- Wrongful death
- Hit and run accident liability concerns
- Negligence involving crosswalk accidents
- Liability when a child runs into the road
- Uninsured or underinsured motorist concerns
If you have been hit in a crosswalk, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries. Do not believe what you may have heard about insurance issues from an insurance adjuster, a family member or a “friend of a friend.” Attorney Chase can help you figure this out and get what you need and are entitled.
