Attorney investigates the causes of collisions between bikes and cars

Without the protection that exists for drivers of vehicles, bicyclists are much more vulnerable to road hazards and severe injuries. To secure a measure of justice, it’s important to hire a qualified attorney who has a successful track record litigating these types of claims. In a free initial consultation, Kim David Staskus will go over each aspect of your bike accident and potential causes including:

  • Careless drivers — Drivers of cars and trucks are legally bound to share the road with bicycles. If laws were not obeyed, we’ll work to hold the negligent vehicle operators accountable.

  • Unsafe conditions — A road defect or hazardous condition that might not affect a larger vehicle could trigger a serious bike crash. Sometimes, government authorities and construction crews don’t take proper care to protect everyone who is using a roadway. We can determine if that was a factor in your accident.

  • Faulty equipment — When a defective part contributes to a bicycle accident, our firm has the ability and resources to find flaws that might have occurred during the design or manufacturing process. We know how to take on powerful adversaries in these cases and win.

For plaintiffs who are coping with broken bones, concussions, lacerations and other injuries stemming from a bike crash, we deliver effective counsel so victims can return to riding as soon as possible.
