At Lee Law Offices, P.A., we know that the rights of cyclists and pedestrians are often ignored by motorists, which can lead to serious accidents and injuries.

And we sometimes find that police at the scene are inclined to find the bicyclist or pedestrian at fault. Our attorneys and investigators will get the accident report, interview witnesses and investigate your case to make sure you are treated fairly and are entitled to the compensation you deserve.

Bicycle and pedestrian accidents frequently result in serious or fatal injuries. Children and lower-income families are often victimized.
