Fighting for Bike Accident Victims

San Francisco Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Were You Injured in a Bike Accident in California? Call (888) 831-8448

Despite the fact that bicycles are legally authorized to share San Francisco's roads with motor vehicles, many drivers continue to demonstrate surprising negligence when bicyclists are in close proximity. Because bicyclists are nearly always the victims in accidents involving motor vehicles, the need for drivers to maintain awareness of bicyclists sharing the roads has never been greater.

Impact On Victims

Being involved in a bicycle accident can have extremely negative consequences. Many victims suffer serious types of injuries such as broken bones, lost limbs, head injuries, internal injuries, paralysis, and death, in the most disastrous cases. Victims of any accident may suffer financial consequences as well, in terms of medical bills and costs associated with recovery from injuries sustained.

Moreover, adults who are seriously injured in these accidents are often unable to continue to work at their profession, creating a terrible financial situation. Children can have their lives forever altered by the negligent act of a speeding driver, causing families unimaginable emotional stress and grief when their child suffers permanent or fatal injuries. A skilled attorney from our team at Bostwick & Peterson, LLP can provide valuable guidance in your bicycle accident claim.

Steps to Take After a Serious Bicycle Accident

First and foremost, if you have been injured, seek medical assistance immediately. Once your medical needs have been addressed, it's a good idea to file a police report. A police report can be powerful evidence concerning exactly what happened immediately before and at the scene of the incident.

Further, if there are bystanders, ask anyone who may have seen the crash to call the police and provide you their contact information, such as name and telephone numbers. Memories fade, so whenever any type of accident occurs, getting witness statements immediately can be crucial to help you recover damages.

Make sure to let the police know if you suspect that the driver may have been using a cell phone or was otherwise distracted. This can be a significant issue in determining fault. It is also important that you keep all your records related to the accident in one place – such as copies of the police report, any notes you may have about the accident, and any photographs you took at the scene.

Finally, contact a San Francisco bicycle accident attorney. Even though filing a personal injury lawsuit may be the furthest thing from your mind, a lawyer can help you collect evidence and determine your next steps. For more information, call the skilled attorneys at Bostwick & Peterson for an immediate consultation.
