San Mateo Bicycle Accident Attorneys

In the past decade, there have been more than 30,000 collisions between bicycles and cars in the Bay Area, according to the California Highway Patrol. Most cyclists escape with cuts, bruises and bent wheels, but nearly 2,000 of those bike accidents resulted in death or serious injury.

If you or your child was injured on a bike because of a driver’s negligence, contact the law firm of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos in San Mateo, California by calling (650) 345-8484 or contact us online to discuss your case with an experienced San Mateo bicycle accident attorney for a free case evaluation. We have experience in investigating these accidents and recovering damages for the devastating aftermath, and take cases throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

Bicycle Accident Injuries

Our bicycle accident lawyers in San Mateo have recovered substantial settlements for wrongful death and catastrophic injury such as paralysis or brain damage. But no bike accident injury is minor.

Let us determine if you have a case. Our San Mateo bike accident lawyers will help you get your injuries properly diagnosed and aggressively pursue all compensation for the medical expenses, lost wages, lost abilities and pain and suffering. Call (650) 345-8484 or email us today for immediate assistance.

Proving Fault in Bike Accidents

Designated bicycle paths and lanes give you a right to share the road, but it doesn’t guarantee that drivers will see you. The bicycle accident attorneys of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos has recovered damages for cyclists who were rear-ended, sideswiped, struck at intersections or run over while riding on a side street by inattentive, preoccupied or aggressive drivers. Yet police reports or witnesses often blame the wrong person.

Our lawyers challenge the defense arguments that the cyclist was at fault. Our experts analyze skid marks (or lack thereof), impact dents and the nature of injuries to illustrate the driver’s speed and actions. We also use human factors experts to show that the driver failed to yield the right of way or took no evasive action, or that the bike rider had no reasonable reaction time to avoid a collision.

An insurance company (or jury) may determine that you are partly at fault for your bike accident injuries — failing to stop at an intersection, riding with headphones, not wearing a helmet. This can reduce your compensation but does not mean you have no case.

Client Reviews
I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm! Agatha
I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally. Jerry
Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did. Cindy C.
