Automobile drivers have a responsibility to share the streets with bicyclists and follow the rules of the road. When it comes to California law, bicycles generally have the same rights as automobiles. Unfortunately, it only takes one careless driver to cause an accident, leading to devastating injuries and damages for the cyclist. At Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger, our Daly City accident lawyers know that injured cyclists and their families face an uphill battle after an accident, and we can help.
Severe injuries, medical bills, and lost wages can quickly become overwhelming, especially when you know that your road to recovery is going to be long and challenging. Our personal injury attorneys represent injured bicyclists, and help them secure the compensation they are entitled to from the responsible party.
