Your bicycle may be an affordable and environmentally-friendly way to get around San Francisco, but it also leaves you at the mercy of motorists. While the majority of motorists will drive carefully and be mindful of your vulnerability, accidents can happen and, when they do, cyclists tend to come out the worst. Without the benefit of bumpers and crumple zones, you stand little chance against a metal, motorized vehicle in a collision. If you have been injured in a San Francisco bicycle accident, an Allegiance Law attorney could help you to recover the compensation you are entitled to, in respect of your injuries and any resulting damage to your property. Where a motorist has acted negligently, you may have an additional claim for compensation.
