NETWORK OF INDEPENDENT BICYCLE CRASH ATTORNEYS.

Bicycle crashes are not bicycle accidents.

We are a network of independent bicycle crash lawyers who share a common approach to the law and to helping cyclists. Our bike crash attorneys have handled thousands of personal injury cases on behalf of cyclists. We know the difference between a bicycle accident and bicycle crash, and why it matters.

Our goal is to be bicycle advocates as well as legal advocates, and to pursue cycling justice.

Our Mission

Bicycle crashes are not bike accidents. Lawyers in the Bike Law Network have handled thousands of them and we know the difference. We have helped injury victims who have suffered a range of serious and catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injury (TBI), broken bones, internal organ damage, and more.

Bike Law is not a law firm, but a network of independent bicycle accident attorneys 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.

Why a Bicycle Lawyer is Different

As cyclists, we take a different approach because we understand how important cycling is, and how devastating it can be to be hit by a motor vehicle while riding a bike, and suffer serious injuries. We also know what it is like to lose the ability or desire to ride.  Our goal is to be social as well as legal advocates. We strive to help clients get back up and riding as soon as possible.

Once we get a case, we work with the police to get the facts right and to determine whether a motorist was at fault. We will guide you through medical treatment and medical bills, 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.

Bike Attorneys are Advocates for All Cyclists

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, whether it be for pleasure, for transportation or for sport, we advocate for your bicycling rights and safety.

Bicycling lawyers are here to protect you on the road. By going after texting teenagers, speeding sports car drivers, drunk drivers, motorists who blow through stop signs or fail to yield right of way, or careless drivers who open their car door into a bike lane, 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 bike riders need to be mindful, drive carefully, follow traffic laws, and share the road. We both pay for it with our tax dollars, and we both need to obey the established rules

As cyclists, we take a different approach because we understand how important cycling is.

3-foot passing close call
Charlie Thomas Jan 11, 2021

It happens all the time: Someone emails me video footage, clearly showing they were biking along when a car buzzes past, coming within inches of a horrible crash — and there’s nothing I can do about it because we don’t have the laws in place to do something to help. Luckily, that might be about […]
