Contact us immediately at 800-425-3861 for a free consultation. Our in-house investigators get to the scene promptly to identify witnesses and gather evidence to demonstrate liability. Our trial lawyers have recovered more than $400 Million in Settlements and verdicts, and we are confident we can help you too.
We work diligently to build a case that demonstrates how a driver's negligence caused a bicycle accident:
- Running a stoplight or stop sign
- Failing to yield when turning
- Improper passing or crowding
- Pulling out
- Failure to take caution at night or in poor visibility
We have also handled numerous product liability cases against bicycle manufacturers for failure of brakes, gears, wheels or other components. Lombardi and Lombardi maintains relationships with bike engineers who can show how the bike itself caused the accident or made injuries worse.
In New Jersey, a person in a painted crosswalk or the statutory crosswalk has the right of way. We aggressively pursue full damages against drivers who failed to yield or come to a complete stop. Many pedestrian injuries are suffered by minor children who may not have been hit in a designated crossing. Drivers often claim that the child darted out or that they had no opportunity to avoid the accident. We seek to prove that the driver was speeding, distracted or inattentive.
Serious and Permanent Injuries
Because the victim is so vulnerable at impact, bicycle accidents and pedestrian accidents commonly cause bad fractures, lacerations, head injuries, spinal cord injuries and other catastrophic harm. Through trial or negotiations, we aim for full compensation for ongoing medical needs, any permanent impairment, and lost wages or earning potential.
