Virginia Bicycle Crash Attorney

Cycling in Virginia stands at a crossroads, literally and figuratively, with two transcontinental bike routes (#76 and #1) intersecting just north of Richmond. New trails, like the Virginia Capital Trail, from Richmond to Williamsburg, are nearing completion and new bike friendly laws are on the books. Yet Virginia remains one of the last states clinging to the antiquated contributory negligence rule and old auto-centric attitudes remain pervasive in state and local governments and the Virginia DOT. The advocacy community is growing in numbers and in influence, and ultimately will prevail.

Tom bought his first “ten-speed” (a Raleigh Record) in junior high with car waxing money. For his law school graduation present, he bought a Team Fuji that he later used to solo tour all over Southwest England. He once surprised Constance, (his girlfriend and wife-to-be) by getting up before dawn and riding his Basso from suburban Philadelphia to the Jersey Shore, hoping she would be impressed enough to give him a ride back (she did).

A dedicated bike commuter at various times during his life, these days Tom can often be seen cruising through the historic neighborhoods of his adopted city of Richmond on his vintage Raleigh Sprite. Most days he eschews lycra and clip-in pedals for comfortable loose-fitting street clothes and sensible shoes.

Most recently, through his VBF role, Tom has played a key role in shepherding bike-friendly legislation though the General Assembly, including the Virginia 3 foot passing law.
