Bicycle & Pedestrian Accidents
Baltimore City Bicycle & Pedestrian Accident Attorneys
Intelligent Counsel for Accident Victims in Baltimore & Prince George’s Counties
Bicycling and walking is an environmentally friendly way to commute, get exercise, and enjoy the outdoors. Unfortunately, it can also be dangerous if motorists disobey traffic laws, drive while distracted, or act in a careless manner. A bicyclist or pedestrian can be seriously injured when struck by a car, truck, or SUV, even at a relatively low speed. Lasting injuries, psychological trauma, and even death can result.
Those who cause these accidents can be held accountable, but it takes a compassionate and tenacious approach to succeed. Miller Stern Lawyers has a reputation for success in the most complex and difficult personal injury cases. With our lawyers in your corner, you can rest assured that your rights will be protected as we work diligently to seek the compensation you need to recover.
If you were seriously injured or lost a loved one in a bicycle or pedestrian accident, call Miller Stern Lawyers at 410-LAW-FIRM.
The Serious Nature of Bicycle Accident Injuries
A bicyclist can experience severe, debilitating injuries in any type of traffic accident because of the difference in the size and weight of a motor vehicle and a bicycle and rider, not to mention the fact that a bicyclist typically only has a helmet and possibly knee or elbow pads for protection. These can only do so much against the force of impact a motor vehicle brings.
Our Baltimore City bicycle accident attorneys take on cases involving:
- Internal organ damage
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Amputation / loss of limb
- Fatal bicycle accidents
Protecting Maryland’s Most Vulnerable Traffic Accident Victims
Pedestrians are almost guaranteed to suffer injury if they are involved in a traffic accident. If they are struck by a motor vehicle, even at low speeds, they can suffer from broken bones, crush injuries, head trauma, and more.
Our pedestrian accident lawyers know exactly what it takes to persevere against any efforts by negligent parties and their insurance providers who may try to undervalue or deny your claim. We understand what it takes to seek the compensation you need to help you recover from your injuries.
Recovering financial compensation is the ultimate goal of any personal injury case involving a pedestrian accident. We know that no amount of money could make up for the loss of someone close to you, and it cannot erase the impact that an accident has had on your life if you were injured. It can, however, bring peace of mind in knowing that justice has been served. It can even expose the dangerous behavior that led to your loss or injuries, thus helping to prevent others from suffering in the future.
Our pedestrian accident attorneys in Baltimore City are committed to pursuing all recoverable damages on your behalf. This may include money for:
- Medical bills
- Ongoing medical treatment
- Physical therapy
- In-home care
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Lost earnings
- Loss of earning capacity or potential
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of enjoyment of life

In most cases, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury case in Maryland is three years from the date of your accident. This may seem like plenty of time, but it is important to remember that building a strong case on your behalf takes time, especially when dealing with an insurance company that is attempting to undervalue or outright deny your claim for compensation.
