Nothing is more important than recovery and compensation for your loved one after a severe injury.

Recovery After A Bicycle Accident

The San Francisco Bay Area is an active region with great weather and home to numerous cyclists. If injured in a serious accident during an organized ride or on the commute to work, you need an experienced bike accident and injury lawyer to obtain the resources you’ll need to make a recovery.

The Tour de California brings cyclists from around the country and the world to the Bay Area each year. Bicyclists pay for and participate in numerous other organized bike rides such as the 100-mile Century Ride and other popular events. Often these events require you to sign a release. But race organizers may still have a duty to provide safe conditions for participants.

At Abraham Smith & Waldsmith, LLP, we see injured clients who come to us believing they have no options. They worry that a signed release prior to a cycling event absolves the organizers. Yet, that release may be poorly written or practically illegible and, as a result, it may not be enforceable.

Identifying Causation To Hold Parties Responsible Liable

While biking for leisure, exercise or a commute to work, accidents can also happen. Low visibility at dawn and dusk is a common factor. Bicyclists can be bumped by vehicles or hit when a driver makes a right turn without carefully checking a blind spot. Open-door accidents involving cars parked along the street can also cause serious injury.

In addition to the negligent actions of motorists, cyclists face issues of products liability involving welds or wheel failure or accidents caused by poorly designed or maintained roads.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a cycling accident during an organized event or a leisurely ride, call 415-421-7995 or toll-free at 888-745-2988 or email us to set up an appointment with one of our experienced personal injury attorneys. We offer free initial consultations to those injured within the San Francisco Bay Area or broader Northern California region.

Vehicle Accidents

There are two things to establish in any motor vehicle accident case: the cause of the accident (fault) and the full cost of the injuries and losses. As we prepare your case, we will investigate both of these.


& Serious Injuries

People suffering from a brain injury, spinal cord injury or other severe injury will require extensive medical treatment, rehabilitative therapy and other long-term care.


Abuse & Molestation

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.



Claims related to sports and recreation injuries can be complicated. These cases often include issues involving waivers and the “assumption of risk” defense.


& Spine Injuries

When you or a loved one suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI), life changes dramatically. Even mild TBIs can lead to years of recovery and rehabilitation.
