Bicycle Accidents

SF Code > Bicycle Accidents

San Francisco Bicycle Injury Attorney

Bicycles are affordable and can help you move from one place to another. Bicycles remain one of the cheapest means of transportation in San Francisco and what’s more, are an environmentally friendly mode of transportation.

While bicycles present riders with a cheaper transportation option, there are other things that cyclists need to be wary of when riding, especially when it comes to other road users. There are many motorists who are careful of their driving and follow all possible rules of the road, but there are others that do not take into account the vulnerability of bicyclists and pedestrians and are less conscious of other drivers as well. In the blink of an eye, these motorists could cause a fatal bicycle accident on the roadway. Bicycle riders, when involved in an accident, tend to suffer varying degrees of injury due to the lack of protective structures like bumpers and crumple zones.

 

Here, we posit our loyalty with our clients and we aim at all times to bring out their confidence by providing aggressive legal services aimed at seeking redress and compensation for the damages which they have suffered.

 

Common causes of bicycle accidents in San Francisco

Bicycle riders are at a disadvantage of riding on two wheels without a structure designed to protect their frame in the event of an accident. There are several types of accidents involving bicycle riders, and if you have been involved in any, you should reach out to a bicycle accident attorney in San Francisco for help.

 

Below are some of the common causes of a bicycle accident in San Francisco: 

  • A collision between car drivers and bicycle riders. This can be caused by several factors including distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, use of a mobile device, or texting. 
  • An accident which can result from dogs chasing cyclists
  • Dooring, which occurs when the bicycle rider rides into a car door which has been negligently opened by the vehicle owner or operator.
  • Hit and run accidents
  • Defective product or defective bicycle component
  • Accidents caused by road defects
  • Road rage
  • Sideswiping, which can occur when a motorist passes too close to a cyclist

 

If you have been involved in a bicycle accident caused by any of the circumstances described above, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim. Call us today to get a quote on your bicycle accident claim.
