Bike Accidents

Recovered for
Our Clients

Note: Like every person, each case is unique. Prior case results should not create expectations of an outcome in any individual case.

Seattle Bicycle Accident Lawyers

Our Seattle bicycle accident lawyers have obtained record-breaking settlements and verdicts on behalf of our clients. When a cyclist is involved in an accident, especially with involving trucking, the injuries are often more serious and often include spinal cord injuries and even brain injuries.  With the exception of trucking incidents, or being struck by an uber/lyft or another well-insured driver,  most bicycle riders do not have sufficient personal accident insurance to cover their own damages.  So it is important to be able to evaluate any source of potential recovery due to negligence including highway design, premises liability, product liability. The severity of bike injuries and even death is reason to hire our team to help you.
