Oregon

When you ride a bike in Oregon, you are pedaling in one of the top states for bicycling in the country. From the famous Pacific Coast Highway to the high desert and the Cascades and inland valleys between, Oregon has been a leader in better cycling. But, hey, even we need to get rid of the prejudiced mandatory sidepath law that was instituted over 50 years ago!

Representation in Oregon bicycle injury cases

Oregon lawyer and Bike Law founder Bob Mionske is a former Olympic and professional cyclist based in Portland, with a law practice that is exclusively focused on representing cyclists who have been injured by motorists, unsafe road conditions, or defective cycling products.  With offices in Portland, Bob represents cyclists all over the State, from Salem, Corvallis, and Eugene to Medford, Ashland, and Pendleton.

There are lots of attorneys out there who will be glad to take a bicycle injury case. And every other kind of case they can find. Bob is different. Before he was an Oregon bike accident lawyer, Bob was an amateur and professional racing cyclist. Bob represented the United States at the 1988 and 1992 Olympics, and in several other international races. After finishing his last professional racing season for Team Saturn, Bob changed directions, and after graduating from law school in 1999, opened the first cyclist-only law office in the world. Bob coined the term “bicycle law” to describe his new law practice, before anybody had ever heard of such a thing. Since then, Bob has focused his entire career on representing injured cyclists.

Bob began writing Legally Speaking, the nation’s first “Bicycle Law” column, in 2002, and in 2007, wrote Bicycling & the Law, the first book for cyclists on their legal rights since the publication of The Road Rights of Wheelmen in 1895. Today, Bob continues to write on bicycle law and the rights of cyclists in his Road Rights column for Bicycling magazine.  You can follow Bob on the Bike Law Blog as well as his personal site, Bicycle Law.

If you have been injured in an Oregon bike accident, by a defective bicycle product, or because of an unsafe road condition and would like to discuss your case with an Oregon bicycle accident attorney who gets cycling, Bob welcomes your call for a free consultation. He can be reached at bob@bikelaw.com and 844-531-7530.

Back in the 80’s, one of the guys I used to race against was Steve Remy, now Team Director for Monster Media Racing Team.  Our paths crossed again last year, this time with us wearing the same kit on Team Guinness.  So when Steve asked me to speak in front of the Monster Media Racing […]

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. […]

“How about I get out and f*** you up in front of your kid?,” says the person driving the car next to me. And a Happy Mother’s Day to you as well… Here’s what happened and here’s how I fought back. As someone who both drives a car and rides a bike, I consistently urge […]
