Bicycle And Pedestrian Accidents
Biking, walking and running are popular for many reasons: exercise, well-being and getting around.
The last thing on people’s minds when they do these activities is the possibility of getting hit by a car. But unfortunately, these accidents happen – and they can be devastating.
According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, California had more pedestrian fatalities than any other state in 2016.
Individuals who have been injured in bike or pedestrian accidents may be eligible for significant compensation. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we protect their rights and help them get the compensation they need to cover all expenses related to the accident.
