Representation in Maryland Bicycle Crashes
In 1998, Peter had a bike tragedy in his own family, realized first hand the need for lawyers who understand cycling, and devoted his law practice to Bike Law. From the start, calls and referrals have come from friends in cycling clubs and bike shops and from advocates for better bicycling. Since then, Peter has represented Maryland cyclists who have been injured by motorists, unsafe road conditions, or defective cycling products. Raised in Bethesda, Peter represents cyclists throughout the State, from the D.C. suburbs, to Annapolis, Columbia, Baltimore, Frederick, Cumberland and everywhere else.
After many years of using the phrase "bicycle accident," Peter and Bike Law officially "dropped the A word" and began using the term "bicycle crash." After many years of handing bike cases, we realized that bicycle crashes are not bicycle accidents, because they are not accidental. Here's why.
Peter is a Life Member of the League of American Bicyclists and is a League Certified Bicycle Safety Instructor (#1864). He is rated as an AV Preeminent Attorney, and has received awards for his pro bono work from the South Carolina and American bar associations and the Washington Lawyers Committee.
Peter speaks across Maryland (and country) to bicycle clubs, advocacy groups, and law enforcement personnel on bicycle safety and bicycle laws. He is especially interested in the etiquette and culture of cycling, and his article “The Lost Art of the Group Ride” has been downloaded over 75,000 times.
If you have been injured in a Maryland bike crash, by a defective bicycle product, or because of an unsafe road condition and would like to discuss your case with a Maryland bicycle crash attorney who gets cycling, Peter welcomes your call for a free consultation. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org and 844-531-7530.
