Bicycle Accident Attorneys
Injured in a bicycle accident?
Thank you for letting me focus on healing.
I was kept me informed through every step of my case.
You understood the emotional issues I was dealing with. I’m happy that my case is settled and I can move on with my life.
I have already referred a co-worker to the Bike Law Group.
Looking back on my case, I couldn’t have handled it without you. There were so many issues we had to deal with – who was at fault, what insurance coverage I had, choosing my doctors, getting my bills paid, and more! Thank you for navigating me through all of the issues.
When the police ticketed my wife, instead of the driver that hit her, we knew we needed an attorney. I spoke to a few lawyers, then a friend suggested I call the Bike Law Group. It was immediately apparent that you understood the hurdles we were facing. We are very satisfied with the outcome of her case.
It can be critical to consult a bicycle lawyer or someone very knowledgeable about bicycling and the law. On many occasions, people who have been injured on their bicycle who had talked to a general personal injury lawyer were advised them that they didn't have a claim, when in fact, they had a strong claim.
Not all crash victims are completely without fault. Making mistakes does not necessarily mean that you don't have a claim. In "comparative fault" states both parties can share fault. Before deciding that your claim is not worth pursuing, please consult with a bicycle accident lawyer to help you make an informed decision that considers all the information and facts of your claim.
We work on a contingent fee basis, and there are no up-front fees or costs. Many accident victims cannot afford to pay a lawyer on an hourly basis, or pay an up front retainer fee, so a contingent fee agreement works well. Our fee is 33% of the gross settlement value for cases that are settled before a lawsuit is filed. For cases that are settled after a lawsuit is filed, the fee increases to 40% of the gross settlement value.
Attorneys are allowed to pay various expenses for you. Typical types of costs that can be advanced to you include: the costs of ordering medical records, the costs of filing a lawsuit, and other litigation costs. While some lawyers charge their clients administrative costs such as postage, copying, etc., we do not charge them to you. You are given a complete accounting of what costs have been advanced.
