Focused On Your Needs
Bicyclists and pedestrians can be seen around town and throughout the rural areas here in Sevierville. Both tourists and residents use these healthy means of transportation to get from one destination to another, or they enjoy them as a form of exercise. As pedestrians and cyclists bustle amongst the roadways, accidents can happen. At Ogle, Rowell & Penland, P.C., we represent bicyclists and pedestrians who have been injured in accidents.
Understanding The Severity Of Injuries
The injuries associated with pedestrian and bicycle accidents vary from minor to severe. Stopping short due to a motorist may result in a skid and fall. Drivers in parked cars may not look before opening their doors and cause an injury. When a bike or pedestrian is in a collision with a moving vehicle, the results could be extremely devastating. Cyclists and people on foot have little protection, which makes them vulnerable to catastrophic injuries when facing the large, heavy force of a vehicle.
Injuries can be costly and difficult to handle emotionally as well as physically. When injured by a negligent driver, our lawyers will help you seek justice and the resources you need to recover.
Providing Honest Advocacy And Free Consultations
In order to build a strong defense, you should document your injuries and the scene. If you are able, take photographs of your injuries, the vehicle and your bicycle. If your injuries are too devastating, have someone else snap pictures for you. Pictures will help show the severity of your injuries and work as a visual aid to your account of the crash. The steps you take after an accident are vital to your health and case.
