Pedestrian & Bicycle Accidents

Northern California Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents Lawyer

Brian J. O'Grady, Attorney at Law

Inattentive drivers pose one of the greatest dangers to individuals who choose to walk, jog or ride bicycles. Further, not all motorists recognize the rights of pedestrians and bicyclists. When these rude or unobservant drivers take to the road, accidents often occur and bike riders and walkers are critically injured.

As a personal injury attorney, I have worked with numerous individuals and families over the course of more than three decades. From my offices in Mountain View, I am ready to help recover financial compensation for injured victims and for families of those lost to fatal accidents. Contact me to discuss your case, questions and concerns.

Taking Action Quickly is Important

Life-changing bicycle and pedestrian knockdown accidents often occur without warning and result in catastrophic injuries or even wrongful death to the victims. Though it is imperative to obtain medical treatment promptly, it is also important to speak with a personal injury attorney.

To fully represent your interests and rights, it is important for your lawyer to begin the process of investigation shortly after the accident. This allows investigators and accident reconstruction engineers to access physical evidence before it disintegrates and interview witnesses before memories fade.

Another reason to quickly act following pedestrian accidents involves the filing deadlines for personal injury cases. To file a general personal injury claim, an injured victim or the family of a deceased loved one must take action within two years. If the accident was caused by a public transportation vehicle or government entity, the deadline is shortened to 180 days.

Offering Experienced Representation

As a personal injury attorney, I have significant experience representing those injured in car accidents and other unfortunate events. I also have experience in representing the victims of drunk drivers. For example, I was trial and appellate counsel in the landmark case of Shore v. Gurnett, 122 Cal App 4th 166 (2004). In that case, the California Court of Appeal upheld the constitutionality for the right of a widow and minor children to recover more than $7 million in damages against an intoxicated driver that killed their husband and father.
