Columbus Bicycle & Pedestrian Accident Attorney
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 Governor’s Office of Highway Safety in Georgia, 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 The Mark Casto Law Firm, PC, takes your case seriously and strives to seek the most favorable results on your behalf.
We aim to recover maximum compensation and help each client recover from their unique situation. Some circumstances we 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, and any other losses you have had to go through or will have to endure.
Some of the injuries our 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, we want to help you recover. We understand that your life may have been changed forever and one of our goals is to help you build your future. For example, if you can no longer ride a bike without assistance, we want to help you pursue cycling as a hobby with the correct care and any assistive devices you need.
Discuss your goals with us during a free consultation, and we will dedicate ourselves to making them a reality.
