Bicycle Accidents in San Francisco

Information About San Francisco Cycling Accidents

Bicycling magazine ranks San Francisco as the sixth-best city for cyclists in the United States, while the League of American Bicyclists has granted it "Gold Status" for being a bicycle friendly community. The Municipal Transportation Authority reports that approximately 128,000 trips are made by cyclists every day, and that the number of cyclists on the roads of San Francisco increased by 58 percent between 2006 and 2010. If you are one of the many San Franciscans who enjoy the 200 miles of bike lanes and cycling paths throughout the city, you are not alone. Cycling is an excellent form of transportation, but it does carry the major risk of serious injury or death in the event of a collision with an automobile.

According to The Bay Citizen's Bike Accident Tracker, one third of all accidents involving bikes and automobiles are caused by the driver. When this is the case, the injured cyclist - or the surviving family members - has a right to sue for monetary damages by filing a personal injury or wrongful death claim. Even the most safety-conscious cyclist has practically no protection in an accident, and they are liable to suffer devastating and life-changing injuries such as crushed limbs, traumatic brain injury or paralyzing spinal cord injuries such as paraplegia and tetraplegia.

Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable for Bike Accidents

The simple fact is that many bike accidents are caused by careless and reckless drivers. Car drivers frequently do not look for cyclists before turning at an intersection, changing lanes or turning into a driveway or parking lot, whether they are texting on a cell phone or if they are simply not paying attention. If you have reason to believe that the accident that caused your injury or the death of a loved one was caused by the driver, contact the Law Offices of Steven A. Fabbro now for a San Francisco personal injury lawyer for a free consultation to tell us your story and find out how much your claim for damages may be worth.
