Bicycle Accident Lawyers
Harris Personal Injury Lawyers are proud sponsors of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition. We understand that bicyclists face greater risk of injury in Oakland as there is constant commuter traffic throughout the Bay Area. Cyclists ride bikes as a means of transportation and for exercise. Our personal injury firm represents bike accident victims on behalf of their personal injury claims. There are many accidents involving bicyclists every year in Oakland and many of these accidents are fatal.
Bike Accident Law:
It is law for bicyclists to share the road with vehicles, and vehicles must share the road with bicyclists. California law states vehicles must give three feet when passing another vehicle. There are times when that is not viable or the road does not allow it, however, we can assure you that our bike accident attorneys will analyze and investigate your accident to confirm the driver was at fault. There are many times where these accidents are just unfortunate and are caused by a poor peripheral or blind spot in a vehicle. If you have been injured on a bicycle from a negligent drivers’ mistake, it is your legal right to seek compensation for any injury you’ve incurred.
Bicycle Accidents in Oakland
Harris Personal Injury Lawyers have represented bicycle accident victims who have been hit and injured due to unfortunate circumstances. We have counseled victims of DUI accidents. Intoxicated or drugged drivers cause some tragic personal injury accidents due to the inebriated state of the driver. Speeding is one of the main causes of accidents involving bicyclists. Distracted driving accidents cause many bicycle accidents in the Bay Area. There are times when drivers fail to yield to oncoming traffic, or drivers often merge into the bicycle lane without looking. Illegal U-turns and destroyed roads are also common bicycle accident causes. Many of our clients were injured on a bike involving a car, motorcycle, truck and or bus.
