San Francisco hearing addresses bicyclist complaints

Although bicycling has grown in popularity, some people aren’t aware of the dangers bicyclists face. These problems are present in many parts of the country, but there are a large number of bicyclists in San Francisco, so it is particularly important for those in the Bay Area to try and prevent another bike accident whenever they are on the road.

Because law enforcement did not ticket a truck driver for the recent death of a bicyclist, even though he was found to be at fault, bicyclists believe that the San Francisco Police Department is biased against bike riders. As a result, a hearing was held at City Hall to address their complaints.

A number of concerns were presented, including the need to address the high number of accidents and improve the efficacy of investigations. A deputy chief admitted that errors were made in this case and stated that authorities do not pick on bicyclists. However, one person claimed that in a separate incident an officer told them they were at fault simply because they were riding a bicycle.

When a vehicle collides with a bicyclist, the possibility of serious injuries and death is a major concern. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon to hear about a bike crash that results in the death of a bicyclist. While those who survive a bicycle collision sometimes struggle with hospital bills, families who lose a loved one could suffer from severe emotional pain and funeral expenses. For anyone dealing with a bicycle crash, talking with a legal professional could help.

    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.
