Road Rage Justice – Bicycle Riders Holding Drivers Accountable

Riding your bicycle on the roadways of America is usually dangerous enough, but if we throw in some drivers with road rage, then bicycling can result in even more personal injury or even wrongful death. For years, bicyclists have been confronted by and suffered from near misses by angry drivers who do not show the same respect or courtesy to bicycle riders that they do to other car drivers. Indeed, some drivers do not afford the most rudimentary common courtesy to cyclists, and this is one of the reasons why cyclists act so darn angry a lot of the…

Bicycle Commuters Are Six Times Healthier Than Other Commuters

Our firm represents many cyclists who have been injured in San Francisco bicycle accidents. So, how can we still encourage commuting by bike? Because, other than bicycle accidents, bicycle commuters have been found to be exponentially healthier than other commuters, and more bicycle riding could help reduce our community’s health care costs substantially. A British study recently found that people who commute by bike are six times more likely to get their 150 minutes of recommended weekly exercise than those who don’t, according to Brunel University in London, England. We all know that regular exercise is good for you.…

Mother Credits Police With Spending Time, and Money, to Help Injured Son

As a bicycle accident lawyer, I must report on so many horrible events, in the hope that we may learn from them and improve the safety of our community. This can make my blog more often than not very negative. Well, I am happy to report that out of one tragedy and disaster arises a little bit of inspiration. Orion Benson, a 10 year old who was struck while riding his bike to school, is expected to make a full recovery from his life-threatening-injuries, and his mother, Sandy Benson, is giving part of the credit to the heroic acts of…

Tips for Cyclists: How To Avoid Bicycle Accidents

If you’ve read my posts about bicycle accidents before, checked out my blog, or even browsed my website, you know that one of my greatest goals is to reduce injuries and fatalities due to bicycle collisions, through making persons and companies and public entities accountable when they needlessly endanger bicycle riders, and also through advising about safer bicycle riding. The statistics are shocking: 100 or more people per year die from bicycle collisions in California alone. This number is deplorable and should be drastically reduced. How can we as bicycle riders and bicycle lawyers work toward reducing bicycle deaths, and…
