Bicycle Accident

Your best choice for legal counsel for bicycle accident claims.

Bicycle AccidentBicyclists have as much right to use the roads as motor vehicles. The rules of the road provide protections to bicyclists who ride on the roadways.  But when drivers don’t respect bicyclists, or fail to follow the vehicle and traffic laws, bicyclists who are struck by vehicles often suffer severe and catastrophic injuries.

At LaMarche Safranko Law, we help injured bicyclists through the complex legal process after an injury from an automobile crash.

After receiving a call from a bicyclist who has been struck by a car you can expect that the personal injury attorneys at LaMarche Safranko will immediately take important steps to protect your legal rights. 

First, whether it’s at the hospital, at your home, or at our office we sit down with every client to learn exactly what happened. We like to meet with clients as soon after the crash as possible, when the facts are vividly on your mind, so we get a clear understanding about what happened.

You’ll likely have questions and we take as much time as we need to answer your questions so that you have a clear understanding of the legal process and how it works.

As the result of our meeting we contact the investigating police agency, and often utilize our own investigators to obtain additional evidence important to your claim including video surveillance from cameras located near the crash scene, witness statements and photographs.

We contact the insurance company of the driver who caused this crash and protect you from adjusters whose goal it is to save their insurance company money by trying to settle quickly and for an unreasonable discount.

We obtain your medical records and follow your care and treatment to get a complete understanding of your medical condition.

We prepare your case to go to trial. Although many cases settle at some point during the legal process, preparing your case for trial inevitably results in the best possible outcome whether by jury verdict or settlement.

Most importantly we spend time with you. We listen to you. We understand you and how your life has been impacted by this life altering event. By getting to know our clients we are ready to be the best advocates we can be for you.

At LaMarche Safranko Law we put our clients first.

That means from day one you can always reach us, day or night to answer your questions and guide you through this process.

With your case in our hands, you will worry less about the complicated legal process and focus more on what’s most important – healing and getting back on your bike.

Because running and biking are our passion we have become strong advocates for bicycle safety on the roads and have a website focused on pedestrian and bicycle advocacy at
