Louisiana Bicycle Crash Attorney

Louisiana's metropolitan areas are quickly becoming a haven for bicycling to work. In fact, New Orleans now ranks eighth in the nation for bicycle commuting. Many recently-added bike lanes and shared roadways pose both opportunities and challenges as motorists and bicyclists learn to safely coexist.

Representation in Louisiana Bicycle Crash Cases

At age 14, Louisiana lawyer Charlie Thomas competed in his first bicycle race and also began working as a mechanic at a bicycle shop in New Orleans. Several years later, Charlie held seven state championships and served as the president of the Texas A&M Cycling Team. Charlie enjoyed the thrill of racing road bicycles in the Professional/1/2 category until law school, where studying took priority. As an attorney, Charlie now rides for recreation and focuses his practice on representing cyclists who have been injured by motorists, unsafe road conditions, or defective cycling products.  Headquartered in New Orleans, Charlie also represents cyclists in Baton Rouge, Shreveport, Monroe, Lafayette, Lake Charles, and all other places in the State.

Charlie's analysis of Louisiana bicycle laws can be found here.

Charlie has a special passion for cycling in Louisiana and wants to be able to do it safely. Having ridden in excess of 50,000 miles, he understands the challenges of sharing roadways and actively advocates for mutual courtesy and respect between cyclists and motorists. After all, everyone wants to lessen the amount of hits and near-hits that occur.

Charlie is also a League Cycling Instructor (LCI) of the League of American Bicyclists.

Charlie incorporates his decade of professionally assembling and repairing bicycles into a comprehensive understanding of product failures and dangerous defects. In fact, Charlie's first legal case involved a bicycle defect that led to a horrific injury for a young child. After seeing this case to a seven figure jury verdict, Charlie has passionately represented bicyclists against insurance companies, at-fault motorists, unsafe big-box retailers, and negligent manufacturers. He is proud to support Bike Law’s unique mission of client and cause advocacy.

If you have been injured in a Louisiana bike accident, by a defective bicycle product, or because of an unsafe road condition and would like to discuss your case with a Louisiana bicycle accident attorney who is also an avid cyclist, Charlie welcomes your call for a free consultation.
