Legal Help In Georgia Bicycle Accident Cases

Georgia Bike Law attorney Ken Rosskopf is a bike rider and lawyer. For more than two decades he has represented Atlanta-area bicyclists injured due to the negligence of others, due to road defects, or due to defective bicycles. Ken is sometimes called the “Dean” of Atlanta bike accidents because of his knowledge and experience with those cases.

Ken and fellow Georgia Bike Law lawyer Bruce Hagen have compiled frequently asked questions about Georgia bicycle safety and bike laws. Their advocacy and legal work on behalf of cyclists have earned them a recommendation from groups such as Georgia Bikes!

“Initial consultations are free,” Ken says. “I encourage victims to get in touch at the earliest possible moment after being injured. Fast action can preserve and document injuries and damages, as well as determine the respective rights and responsibilities of the parties.”
