San Francisco Bay Area Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Oakland and San Jose Bike Accident Attorney
Bicycle accidents happen every day. An estimated 50,000 plus people are injured every year riding bicycles. Bicycle accidents in the San Francisco Bay Area are all too common. Thousands of injuries occur every year as a result of a bicycle and car collision or bicycle and truck collision. While the number of bicycle crash related deaths in the United States has gone down (thanks to helmet laws) about one person dies each week unnecessarily from wounds suffered as a result of riding a bicycle.
Even when riding your bike across the street to the local convenience store, or your child is riding around the neighborhood for fun, bicycle accidents can happen at any time. Road conditions, an incompetent driver, a careless truck driver are the main causes of bike accidents. If you or your child has been in a bicycle crash and been injured by no fault of your own it's a good idea to speak with an experience bicycle personal injury attorney. And, be aware, there are things you can and should do after a being hit by an automobile while riding a biycyle.
Oddly, many bicyclists involve in an auto-bicycle crash are under the false impression that when they get into the accident it was their fault. This is not true. Cyclists are not at fault when they are injured by careless or inept drivers, or when hazardous road conditions are a factor. Municipal liability laws address these type of injury cases. By law, your local municipality is responsible for maintaining adequate road conditions, and bicyclists should not suffer due to municipal negligence.
Common bicycle accident injuries:
Statistics show bicycle accidents happen mostly to children age 14 and under. While it is necessary, and law in most areas, to wear a helmet while riding a bike injuries obviously still occur whether a child is wearing a or not.
