Bike Law is not a law firm, but a network of independent lawyers and law firms who share a common approach to the law and to helping cyclists. We also have a non-profit advocacy effort, the Bike Law Foundation.
Our methods and processes have been honed over the last fifteen years: we have handled every type of bicycle crash, and have learned (and will continue to learn) how to do it better. Lawyers in the Bike Law Network share insight and experience to serve cyclists. Our Network is growing, and as it does, each of us learns more.
As cyclists, we take a different approach because we understand how important cycling is, and how devastating it can be to be hit on a bike and lose the ability or desire to ride. Our goal is to be social as well as legal advocates, and we strive to help clients get back up riding as soon as possible.
Once we get a case, we work with the police to get the facts and fault right, we guide you through medical treatment and billing, negotiate with insurance companies, and, when necessary, file suit and go to trial.
We also provide pro bono legal advice to cycling clubs and teams - about insurance, organizational structure, advocacy efforts, bicycle safety and more. We regularly speak at bike club meetings and are happy to come to yours.
Lawyers in the Bike Law network of bicycling attorneys are advocates for all cyclists. That means commuters, racers, beginners, and advanced riders. If you ride a bicycle for any reason, for pleasure, for transportation, for sport, we advocate for your bicycling rights and safety.
Bicycling lawyers are here to protect you on the road. By going after the texting teenagers or the speeding sports car driver who hits you, you are sending a message to other drivers and also insurance companies. You are saying we aren't going to take it anymore! Drivers and cyclists need to be mindful, drive carefully, and share the road. We both pay for it with tax dollars and we both need to obey the rules established on the road.
Lawyers in the Bike Law Network represent bicyclists injured in traffic crashes, at the police station, against insurance companies, and in the courts.
We advocate the rights of all cyclists, not just our clients. We report, comment, and campaign on bicycling safety.
What to do if you are in a bike crash, why we don't say bicycle accident or bike accident, how to ride safely, and more.
We believe in the cycling movement and where it is going. We want cycling culture to evolve elegantly.
In addition to representing individual cyclists, our 501(c)(3) Foundation advocates for better biking everywhere!

This year, before COVID, over 600 bike riders from over 25 states retraced the steps of the Civil Rights Marchers from Selma to Montgomery. The event was about much more than just riding a bike, as participants toured historic sights and were led by civil rights leaders and historians. The annual ride is an example […]Read More
Hundreds of athletes are currently in the midst of participating in what may very well be the most significant Strava art project ever – the spelling out of Black Lives Matter from NY to ME in “virtual letters” large enough to be read from outer space. This BLM Strava art challenge initially began as a […]Read More

What began as a simple conversation about advocacy turned into an inspiring deep dive into the work Pedal Fergus Falls has done and continues to do for our cycling community. Pedal […]Read More
