Kansas

With unfavorable laws against cyclists, extreme temperatures (and wind), budget shortfalls, and inhospitable attitudes in some places, Kansas presents challenges to cyclists. Yet with the growth of cycling in the higher density areas, probably the best gravel road riding in the country, and the vistas of the Flint Hills, Kansas is underrated for cycling and is getting better all the time.

Representation in Kansas bicycle injury cases

Six years ago, Vance Preman had his bike renaissance.  Inspired by the 2008 MS 150, Vance started riding again and hasn't looked back, completing every ride since.   Welcomed into the cycling community, he devoted his law practice (not to mention his social life) to representing cyclists and cycling causes.  Headquartered in Kansas City, Vance represents cyclists in Topeka, Lawrence, Dodge City, Salina, Coffeyville, and all places in between.

Vance brings his 37 years of legal experience to the Bike Law Network.  He is a practicing trial attorney since 1977, a well known mediator (having mediated over 2700 cases), AV-rated as a lawyer (the highest rating), and is licensed in both Kansas and Missouri.

Best of all, Vance is an avid cyclist and can be seen sponsoring and participating rides and events throughout the Heart of America, in his tricked-out Sprinter SAG van.

He is on the board of the KC Metro Bike Club and the KANDANGO Ride.  He sponsors the Tour de Brew/Bier and the Tour of Kansas City.  He regularly speaks to clubs and groups about better cycling and the legal aspects of riding.

Vance has chosen to join the Bike Law Network because of its focus on client and cause advocacy.  If you have been injured in a Kansas bike accident, by a defective bicycle product, or because of an unsafe road condition and would like to discuss your case with a Kansas bicycle accident attorney who gets cycling, Vance welcomes your call for a free consultation. He can be reached at vance@bikelaw.com and 844-531-7530.

At any given time about 20% of the cases we handle involve a hit and run driver.  My unofficial research and experience suggests that a driver is more likely to flee the scene of an accident involving a bicyclist, and even more likely than that to flee the scene of an accident involving a pedestrian.
