We are Bay Area and Central Coast bicycle accident lawyers. As bike riders, we understand the unique issues facing cyclists, especially when riding in busy urban areas. The personal injury attorneys at Rahman Law PC are knowledgeable about the special laws for bicyclists and are skilled at utilizing these laws to obtain favorable results in bicycle accident cases for our clients.
As trial attorneys, we also work with the most skilled experts in the field of two-wheeled vehicle collisions to obtain the needed evidence to show the other driver’s fault. Bicycles are different from cars. Through our representation of hundreds of riders, we have educated the public and insurance companies about what car drivers can do to properly share the road with bicyclists. Part of our goal in representing riders is to change the public perception of riders to one that is a positive image.
The lawyers at RAHMAN LAW PC advocate on behalf of cyclists by sponsoring local bicycle coalitions, attending City hearings and lecturing and educating the public on making the streets safer for two-wheeled vehicles. We have also obtained significant results for clients in bicycle accident cases.
The number of cyclists in California increases each year, and with this increase comes an increase in collisions both with other vehicles and single bicycle collisions caused by roadway defects. While some public entities have tried to evaluate increased safety measures to decrease conflicts between cyclists and other modes of transportation, by and large these efforts have not gone far enough.
The five most common types of bicycle collisions involve:
- A vehicle making a right turn across the cyclist’s lane of travel;
- A vehicle turning left at an intersection;
- The failure of a motorist to stop at a red light or stop sign;
- A vehicle or cyclist passing on the right.
