Bicyclists And Pedestrians, The Most Vulnerable People On The Road

When designing roads, there is push and pull between doing what works best for cars versus protecting pedestrians and bicyclists. No matter how that conflict is resolved, people on foot and on bicycles are at the highest risk of catastrophic injury.

The Heck Law Offices, Ltd. is a firm with over 40 years of combined experience presenting real solutions to people injured as pedestrians or bicyclists. We can explain the process of injury law in Ohio pertaining to these injury victims and can advocate strongly for you with insurers and in court to get those victims the compensation and justice they deserve.

Having Patience Is Important

Attorneys Jeff Heck and Jeff Stiffler are known for their preparation and dedication to their clients. They provide candid and upfront advice and guidance to people who have been injured and to those who have lost loved ones due to the careless acts of others. This may also include answering questions about how long a case will take. Every injury is unique, so every case will require time to make the right choices and to seek and eventually reach the right result.

No matter what level of injuries you have had, it will be important to have patience in getting your matter resolved. Injury claims and litigation can take time to resolve because:

  • Insurance companies may make the filing process intentionally difficult
  • Collecting and consolidating evidence and information from crashes can be a lengthy process
  • The court is ultimately in control of when your trial will take place
  • Filing before we have all the available evidence can be a detriment to and potentially delay your case

Patience, however, does not mean waiting forever. Patience simply means waiting for the right time, preparing your case and moving forward to provide the absolute best possible chances for success. As Jeff Heck often tells his clients, "It's better to get it right than to get it right now."
