Seattle Bicycle Accident Lawyer
A Cyclist Serving Cyclists
As an attorney that loves riding bikes, I exclusively focus on bicycle personal injury cases. I have advocated for hundreds of injured cyclists and have achieved remarkable results because I understand the rules of the road for cyclists and know the nuances of bicycle personal injury cases.
Beyond the results, my North Star is forging connections with my clients by being there for them when they need it most and offering my unwavering support throughout their journey.
My 30+ years of experience in the saddle, coupled with 20+ years of legal experience, provides the wisdom and experience necessary to win your case and ensure you receive maximum compensation for your injuries and damages.
Our Areas of Expertise
Navigating the maze of insurance coverages can be daunting. Our firm has a streamlined system aimed at ensuring you get full compensation for your damages.
Gather Liability Evidence:
Our team gathers crucial evidence, including police reports, police videos, scene photos, witness declarations, vehicle damage photos, repair estimates, physical evidence from the scene and 911 calls to make sure the driver is held accountable for causing the collision and your injuries.
We research all available insurance coverages, quickly open all of your claims, relay treatment updates to the adjusters so there are no surprises when they receive our settlement demands, receive and respond to the numerous calls, emails and letters from the adjusters, and keep a meticulous file of all insurance-related communications for your case.
Property Damage Advocacy:
We work with you to make sure your property valuation accurately reflects your after-market upgrades to your bike and components, that the repair and replacement valuations are fair and accurate, and that the insurance company has all of the estimates, photos and documentation it needs to pay you in full for your bike and gear.
Coordinate Medical Bill Payments:
We coordinate payment of your medical bills with the insurance companies. We identify the primary payer and send their information to your medical providers. We also ask the primary payer to request copies of any medical records and bills they need so you can get your bills paid in a timely manner. If there is no primary payer, we work with you and your medical providers to keep your bills out of collections while your case is pending.
Gather Damages Evidence:
We order complete copies of all of your medical records and bills, get wage loss declarations from your employer, talk with people in your life about how your injuries have impacted your life, and we consult with your doctors to make sure all of your injuries are documented.
Case Valuation Counseling:
When you are done treating, we will educate you about the numerous factors that go into case valuation based on the specific facts of your case so you can make an informed settlement decision that takes into account your past recovery and your future needs.
Challenging Insurance Companies & Supporting Cyclists
Insurance companies push for fast and cheap settlements by trying to blame you or by minimizing what happened to you. You don’t deserve that. You deserve to feel heard, and more importantly, you deserve to BE heard by an advocate who knows you and how your injuries have changed your life.
That’s where we come in, guiding you through the claims process, telling your story effectively, and shutting down the insurance company’s liability arguments. We never let up. As an avid cyclist, you deserve to be represented by a fellow lifelong cyclist who knows the rules of the road and will zealously advocate for you to make sure you are not blamed for the collision and can recover 100% of your damages.
Achieving Outstanding Case Results that Leave Nothing on the Table
Your Compassionate Ally
During Your Recovery
For many of our clients, cycling is not just an occasional activity, it’s a way of life. We know that riding helps you maintain the life you love, the body you love, and the happiness you value greatly. We are dedicated to supporting you during your recovery with frequent, meaningful communication about how your treatment is going, how your body is feeling, how you are doing emotionally and how you are holding up through the pain.
Maintaining your mental and physical well-being as you push through the pain of recovery can feel overwhelming. But we help athletes like you every day feel supported and heard – even when everyone else in your life is tired of hearing about it – you can call us. We are not just legal advocates, we are compassionate listeners who want to hear how your recovery is going and discuss the challenges along the way.
