This area of personal injury law involves negligence on behalf of motorists for injuries sustained by other motorists, bicyclists, and/or pedestrians who are struck by motor vehicles. We are currently litigating a case where a bicyclist was injured when the operator of a motor vehicle parked his car and negligently opened his door without looking, slamming into the bicyclist. We also have successfully represented pedestrians who were struck by vehicles (including pedestrians struck by bicyclists), and persons injured in multiple-vehicle car crashes.
