According to the National Highway Safety Association, in 2009, 33,808 people died in motor vehicle collisions. Of those fatalities, 630 of them represented bicyclists alone. Aside from bicycle accidents, the United States has a substantial problem with pedestrian injuries and deaths. Each year, approximately 5,000 pedestrians are killed and another 64,000 are injured in a motor vehicle accident in the United States.
These staggering figures for bicycle and pedestrian accidents are a particular cause for concern for the residents of Berkeley because of its distinctive nature as a college town. Every day, approximately 45,000 drivers, bicyclists, pedestrians, and people on scooters, skateboards and rollerblades share an intricate system of paths and roadways that belong to the Berkeley campus, and those individuals on foot and on wheels are at a heightened risk for being struck by an automobile. Berkeley's "Bicycle Boulevards" may be extremely convenient, but due to their overwhelming popularity, and the vast number of people sharing the roadways and paths, accidents are bound to happen, putting innocent students, teachers and faculty staff at risk of serious injury or death each and every day. Our firm is proud to represent bicycle and pedestrian accident victims in the event they are injured in a collision with a motor vehicle.
