Michigan Bicycle Accident Lawyer gives away 5000th Bicycle Helmet

On Saturday, May 17, 2014, my law firm (the Sinas Dramis Law Firm) held its 12th annual “Heads Up for Safety” bike helmet event. With our co-sponsors, the Michigan Association for Justice, Origami Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center, and WLAJ, we provided and fitted 350 kids with bike helmets. Since sponsoring its first bike helmet event, the Sinas Dramis Law Firm has distributed over 5,000 bicycle helmets to children in Michigan. As a bicycle accident lawyer who deals with bike crashes every day, I know how important it is to get kids (and adults) to wear a properly fitting bicycle helmet every ride.

As in the past years, the CFT-Sinas Dramis Bicycle Racing Team hosted a bike obstacle course and SPIN Bicycle Shop hosted a bicycle repair tent. Overall, the event was a tremendous success. The law firm looks forward to hosting another bike helmet event in Grand Rapids, Michigan on June 14, 2014.

Bike lanes are not necessarily a safe zone for bike riders, especially when poorly designed.   When riding in bike lanes, do not let your guard down. As cyclists, we face drivers pulling into parking spaces next to bike lanes and opening their doors without looking. I’ve recently represented several cyclists who have been hit […]

Is it reasonable for the law to require all roadway users to use the same amount of caution? Should pedestrians and bicyclists be required to use as much caution on the road as motorists? For a very long time, California has said “no.” Illinois should follow suit. As in Illinois, Californians using the road are […]
