Helping You Get Back On Your Feet (And Back In The Seat)
Although cyclists and pedestrians have the right of way, they are often treated as second-class citizens on the road.
In fact, based on recent data from the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety, over 15% of the state’s traffic fatalities involved a cyclist or a pedestrian. More often than not, these accidents were caused by negligent drivers.
Behavior that makes a driver negligent includes:
- Distracted driving, including texting while driving
- Not following traffic signals or stop signs
- Failing to yield the right of way to bicycles and pedestrians at crosswalks
- Failing to signal when turning
- Driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs or other intoxicating substances

Common Injuries In Pedestrian And Bicycle Accidents
Because cyclists and pedestrians lack the protection of a vehicle, they are more likely to suffer from catastrophic injuries and even fatalities in the event of a collision. That’s why I take your case seriously and strive to seek the most favorable results on your behalf.
I aim to recover maximum compensation and help each client recover from their unique situation.
Some circumstances I will consider are:
- Your current and future medical expenses
- The way your income and earnings have been and will be affected
- Your immediate and ongoing pain and suffering
- Any other losses you have had to go through or will have to endure
Some of the injuries my clients have sustained are below:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Back and spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones
- Deep lacerations and disfigurement
- Road rash burns
- Wrongful death
If you have sustained any of the injuries above, I want to help you recover. I understand that your life may have been changed forever and one of my goals is to help you build your future.
For example, if you can no longer ride a bike without assistance, I can help you pursue cycling as a hobby with the correct care and any assistive devices you need.
