In addition to representing injured cyclists, Adam White Law provides additional legal services. The firm represents injured pedestrians, slip/trip and fall victims, people injured in motorcycle accidents, and will even offer counsel and advice on traffic tickets. Here are a few types of common cases in which clients seek the expert counsel of Adam White Law.
When drivers fail to exercise reasonable care, accidents occur. And when they do, pedestrians lose. Common car-related pedestrian accidents include everything from failure to observe traffic signals, to driving while texting, or even drunk driving. Since not every accident is clear cut, Adam White Law help clients determine the best way to proceed.
Pedestrians and Poorly Maintained Property
Pedestrian accidents that do not involve motor vehicles are more difficult to prove and run the line between pedestrian accidents and premises liability accidents. Often these accidents are caused by a failure to maintain property, which can include broken sidewalks, poorly maintained streets, pot holes, inoperable traffic signals and other such hazards. Adam White Law can help clients determine liability, even when multiple parties may be at fault.
In New York, the laws related to motorcycles can be unusually complicated. Motorcycles, for example, are not subject to the same no-fault rules that apply to cars because the law considers motorcycles inherently dangerous. But because of this, motorcycle accidents are also not subject to the severe injury requirements of New York no-fault insurance. Adam White Law has the expertise and legal know-how needed to work with injured motorcyclists to protect their rights and ensure fair resolution to related injury cases.
There’s no shortage of conjecture about a bicycle ticket crackdown in New York, but whatever the reality, the number of tickets issued to cyclists is on the rise. Adam White Law will offer answers to questions about traffic tickets, and provides a fee-for-appearance service for clients who prefer to have a lawyer in the courtroom when fighting a ticket.
