Bicycle Accidents


Representing Cyclist Accident Victims In The Bay Area

Bicycling is a wonderful form of transportation and exercise, and often a preferred way to get around the Bay Area and enjoy the beautiful scenery as well as avoid some of the nasty freeway congestion in the area. Fortunately, there are numerous laws in place to protect cyclists in the state of the California. However, despite such protections, injuries still occur.

Today, one of the most serious issues that threaten cyclists is distracted drivers. Whether it is due to texting or not checking a blind spot, a bicyclist is put in danger when a driver takes their focus off the road ahead of them. And, because bicyclists have little protection, they are often prone to serious and catastrophic injuries.
