All across the nation, people look for ways to stay healthy and be active. Riding a bike, walking and running are common forms of exercise that continue to grow in popularity.

These incidents usually come in the form of an accident, most frequently a traffic-related crash, and victims are left with a wide range of losses and damages caused by the negligent party.
