In California, bicyclists generally have the same rights and responsibilities on the road as automobiles. Unfortunately, when a reckless driver does not respect those rights, even a minor collision can have devastating consequences for a bicyclist. If you or a loved one has been injured in a bicycle accident, a Foster City personal injury attorney at Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger can go over the details of your accident and provide you with a free case evaluation.
