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.

As a bicycle accident attorney, I wanted to understand how a bicyclist who apparently was following all traffic laws and pedaling in a protected bicycle lane could have been caught up and […]

Many of you have read the Washington Post’s Courtland Milloy’s attack-piece on cyclists in DC.  There have been thoughtful, rationale, and intelligent responses already: read WABA’s response, Washington City Paper , and WashCycle. The Post tried to contain the damage by publishing It’s time to tone down the tirades against bicyclists, by “transportation reporter and avid bicyclist” Ashley […]
