Have You Been Injured In A Bicycle Accident?
Bicycles are a great form of exercise and recreation for many people, but they are also extremely dangerous. Lacking the safety features of cars or other motor vehicles, bicycles leave their riders with no protection. In fact, bicycle accident deaths have risen in the past 10 years or so.

Causes Of Bicycle Accidents
Bicycle accidents can be caused by all sorts of events. We represent clients in claims involving bicycle accidents caused by:
- Drunk driving: When someone is operating a car or an 18-wheeler under the influence of alcohol or other drugs, that person should be held responsible for the damages caused by the accident.
- Reckless driving: Many bicycle accidents are caused by drivers who are not paying attention, driving too fast for conditions or tinkering with their smartphones. Our lawyers find the causes of our clients’ accidents so we can place liability firmly on the negligent party.
- Faulty vehicle or bicycle parts: Some accidents result from brake failure in either the car or the bike, or other types of defective parts.
Our firm’s founder, Andy Protzman, formerly worked as an insurance defense lawyer. He knows how the insurance companies fight these cases, and he knows how to prevail. Our entire team takes his lead in fighting our clients’ cases aggressively and getting the best results possible.
