Many cyclists are seriously injured or killed in accidents in the San Francisco Bay Area every year. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) points out that while only 1 percent of trips in the United States are made on a bicycle, cyclists face a significantly higher risk of crash-related injury and deaths than motor vehicle occupants. In 2013 there were an estimated 494,000 emergency room visits due to bicycle-related injuries. The number of bicyclists killed in collisions with motor vehicles has increased 28 percent over the past decade, according to a 2008 San Francisco Chronicle analysis of data collected by the California Highway Patrol.
Moreover, CDC data also shows that lifetime medical costs and productivity losses from bicycle related injuries total about $10 billion. If you were riding a bike and were hit by a negligent driver, or you lost a loved one in a bike accident, you are entitled to compensation.
Uninsured Motorist Coverage and Bike Accidents
If you have been injured in a collision with a car, truck, bus or other vehicle while bicycling, your uninsured or under-insured motorists (UM) coverage should protect you. However, it is important to consult an experienced bicycle accident lawyer to make sure you receive maximum compensation for your injury.
