The city of San Francisco and surrounding Bay Area is a beautiful place to ride a bicycle. However, as enjoyable as the sport is, it also comes with its share of dangers. There a lot of hazards that can cause a bicycle crash, like: roadway hazards, potholes, reckless automobile drivers, reckless bus drivers, and problems with the bicycles themselves. When one of these factors causes a bicyclist to get into an accident, the injurious consequences can be life altering and deadly to say the least.
At the Dolan Law Firm, we have handled numerous bicycle accident claims relating to wrongful injury and wrongful death. Furthermore, out attorneys have a long history of achieving financial recoveries on behalf of our clients. For example, one case — where our firm successfully obtained an award of $365,000 for our client — related to a bicyclist who was hurt by a parked motorist opening his door in the cyclist’s path. These bike accident cases are often referred to as “being doored.”
