Washington, D.C. Bike Crash Attorney

Born and Raised in DC, We Are Your Washington, D.C. Bike Crash Attorneys.

Timmy grew up in DC and became a cyclist in DC, and his best job (before joining The Law Office of Peter Wilborn) was his stint as a full-time bike messenger.  He knows the city’s streets.

Timmy is a 2009 graduate of the Charleston School of Law. For his first five years of practice, he was a prosecutor focusing on crimes against women.  He has extensive trial experience as a lead attorney and has handled thousands of complex cases of violent crime and sexual assault.

As a cyclist and lawyer, Timmy feels a responsibility to help injured bicyclists. His life long love affair with the bike and sense of justice are what brought him to Bike Law.

Timmy has raced on the road and track. Timmy still uses a track bike (and now cargo bike) to get around.  Riding is his passion and he rides every day.

DC Bicycle Laws

DC Bike Law Resources

Washington D.C. has seen amazing growth for cycling in sport and transportation over the last 10 years. We believe this is due to a trifecta of great advocacy on the part of WABA, a strong cycling community, and influencers in the public sector like Gabe Klein. Here are a few of our go-to DC Bike Law resources:

General

Cyclists traveling on roadways have all the general rights and duties of drivers of vehicles.

Traffic Flow

Ride with the flow of traffic on the right half of the roadway.

Where to Ride

Operate a bicycle in a safe and non-hazardous manner, so as not to endanger himself or herself or any other person.

Cyclists Passing Cars

Allowed to pass on left or right, in the same lane of changing lanes, or pass off-road.

Cars Passing Cyclists

A person driving a motor vehicle shall exercise due care by leaving a safe distance but in no case less than 3 feet, when overtaking and passing a bicycle.

Dooring
