At The Brod Law Firm, we are proud to work with motorcycle riders who’ve been injured by negligent drivers and we have long supported the motorcycle riding community. However, ultimately our job is to help the wrongfully injured or those grieving the wrongfully killed. While it is less common than pedestrian accidents caused by cars, pedestrian accidents caused by motorcycles are a threat. When a negligent motorcycle rider harms a pedestrian, our San Francisco pedestrian accident attorney is, as always, prepared to fight for the wrongfully injured. We know that most riders are as committed to safety as they are to the open road and suspect they’d support our efforts to help the victims of motorcycle riders who failed to appreciate the power two wheels can have.
Weekend San Francisco Motorcycle Crash Leaves Pedestrian Dead
Over the weekend, the San Francisco Chronicle reported on the arrest of a motorcycle rider on hit-and-run charges. A police spokesman told reporters that a 67-year-old woman had been crossing 24th Street mid-block in the vicinity of Noriega Street shortly before 7 PM on Friday when a motorcyclist passed around a double-parked vehicle and hit the pedestrian. The woman was transported to San Francisco General Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
