In the time of Covid, people have started to covet bizarre things like toilet paper and bicycles. Because people are being forced to stay inside and avoid places where people gather, like restaurants or gyms, people turn to ride bikes to give them a sense of freedom. Even though fewer cars are on the road, an increase in biking could cause an increase in accidents. Our San Francisco Bicycle Accident Attorneys at Allegiance Law are here to help you get back on your proverbial feet.
Traffic fatalities that include cyclists have increased over the past few years, according to data found on sfgov.org.

The commonality between these injuries is that they take time away from the victim from living their everyday lives. Getting into an accident is never the intention when you start peddling your bike.
