Cyclist death in San Francisco results in wrongful death suit

Lots of bike accidents result in injury, but for some San Francisco residents they result in fatality. When this happens, surviving family members experience the heart-wrenching truth that motor vehicles and bikes share the road, but not always in harmony. San Francisco bike accident attorneys file wrongful death suits on behalf of the deceased and their survivors.

Bike riders are just no match for the muscle of a motor vehicle when a collision occurs. Last month a 24-year-old woman was killed in a bicycle accident in San Francisco after a food delivery truck collided with her. The woman was riding on a busy road when the accident occurred. The driver was eventually found to be at fault after video showed law enforcement what happened. Apparently he made more than one error which contributed to the crash.

Now the family is trying to hold the driver, and his employer responsible, in a civil court of law, filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Criminal action has not yet been taken and it is uncertain whether the driver will be formally charged. The woman was rushed to local hospital with severe head trauma and died before her mother could arrive. It is unknown how much the family is asking the driver and his employer to pay.

Regardless of whether a bike crash results in injury or death, it’s important to realize that it can prompt legal process to ensue. People involved in bicycle accidents, or their surviving family members, may benefit from speaking with experienced bike accident attorneys.

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!


    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.


    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.

    I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
