Accident and Injury

Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents

For dependable advice and attentive client service in a pedestrian or bicycle injury accident case, contact an experienced Louisiana personal injury lawyer at the Charbonnet Law Firm in New Orleans or Metairie. In both bicycle and pedestrian accident cases, we represent clients ranging from children to the elderly who were hit by motor vehicles of all kinds. In each case, our thorough investigation of the facts relating to both liability and damages can help you build a strong case for maximum compensation.

Vulnerable To Injury In A Collision

Just as in motorcycle accidents, bicyclists and pedestrians are fully exposed to the impact of a motor vehicle and the further trauma caused or aggravated by contact with the road or other hard surfaces. Even a low-speed collision can result in serious, permanent or fatal injury.

The physical consequences of an accident suffered by a pedestrian or bike rider can include such injuries as the following:

  • Multiple fractures of arms, legs, pelvis, or other bones
  • Soft tissue trauma to important joints such as shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips or knees
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Head and brain trauma from concussion to severe traumatic brain injury
  • Serious neck and back injuries
  • Paralysis or quadriplegia resulting from spinal cord damage

Our attorneys do not assume that the full extent of the victim’s injuries was identified in the emergency room. Many injuries are overlooked while medical attention is focused on such obvious trauma as broken bones or uncontrolled bleeding. Our continuing attention to your physical condition and recovery will help ensure that even such “delayed reaction” injuries as certain forms of brain trauma will be identified and included in your demand for money damages. We can also help you find the right treatment options for your injuries, such as microdiscectomy as a less intrusive alternative to spinal fusion surgery.
