Pedestrian And Bicycle Accidents
Pedestrians and bicyclists must always be aware of motor vehicles on the road. Motorists also have a duty to watch out for others on the road.
Unfortunately, during a collision, there is no question about who loses. Accidents between pedestrians or bicyclists and motor vehicles can be devastating, resulting in serious even fatal injuries. At Duncan Law Firm, we focus on maximizing recovery for the victims involved in bicycle and pedestrian accidents.
