Pedestrian and cycling accidents involving automobiles, motorcycles, trucks, and other vehicles are a daily occurrence in the country, especially in small towns and rural areas like Durango and Southwest Colorado where cycling and walking are popular forms of transporation and recreation. Such accidents can result in serious injuries such as burns, fractures, breaks, dislocations, paralysis, traumatic brain injuries, as well as injuries to the spine. These accidents can also result in fatalities.
If you are injured as a cyclist or pedestrian, you are entitled to compensation for physical pain and mental anguish, medical and rehabilitation expenses, lost income or future earning capacity, impairment, and disfigurement.
Victims of these types of accidents often attempt to obtain their own personal injury settlements. They hope that the insurance company will settle their accident claims as promptly and fairly as they advertise, but the accident victim often gets nowhere.
Retaining an attorney who has had extensive experience in fighting insurance companies is vital to receiving the recovery that one deserves. If you have been injured in an accident, The Law Offices of David L. Downs, LLC. can level the playing field for you.
