Questions raised after death of San Francisco bicyclist

When it comes to riding bicycles, many people understand the various benefits that bikes offer. Not only are they eco-friendly and economical, but an excellent way to exercise as well. However, some bicycle riders in the Bay Area have to worry about the risks associated with riding a bicycle in an urban environment, especially sharing the road with cars and trucks. In some cases, a bike accident can seriously injure a cyclist or result in death.

After a woman was recently killed by a truck driver while riding her bike, proponents are pushing for San Francisco streets to be redesigned to accommodate bikers better. The victim, who was initially blamed by law enforcement until video footage showed she was a victim, was struck while heading to work. Other fatal crashes involving bicycles and trucks have occurred this year in the same area, causing bicycle proponents to see a need for change.

Some bike riders believe that law enforcement is biased, noting that the drivers in these other deadly incidents were not charged with a crime. They believe law enforcement does not respond to these accidents properly, with some even believing that they tend to side with drivers. Meanwhile, the city’s district attorney office will be given information pertaining to the investigation from law enforcement in order to decide whether or not charges should be filed against the truck driver.

When someone is involved in a bicycle accident, it can have a significant impact on both them and their families. Some people who were in a crash have to deal with physical injuries, while other families mourn the loss of a loved one. As if this isn’t difficult enough, these accidents can be financially devastating. From hospital bills to funeral costs, the charges are often overwhelming. For anyone struggling with this issue, it might be helpful to contact an attorney.

    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.
