Anyone who rides a bike can tell you – it can be terrifying. Nowadays way too many drivers are distracted. They are on their phones, they are intoxicated. The “bike lane” provides no real protection for cyclists when texting drivers drift to their right. Most lawyers who handle personal injury cases will claim to handle cycling accidents. However, any lawyer who has ever ridden a bike will tell you that “cycling accidents” are no accident.
Our lead personal injury lawyer at the Puget Law Group, Casey Arbenz, is an avid cyclist and triathlete. He has personally felt the fear of a truck mirror whizzing within inches of his head. He has seen and represented numerous cyclists hit by negligent motorists. His passion for cyclist’s rights and cycling safety make him a zealous advocate for his clients. He does not hesitate to take negligent motorists to task for their conduct and he rejects any attitudes that suggest cyclists are “assuming the risk” when they go out on the road.
The reality is that drivers should give cyclists a wide berth when passing and any fall or collision related to a motor vehicle is, in all likelihood, not the fault of the cyclist. If you or a loved one has been injured while riding a bicycle, call Puget Law Group to schedule a complimentary strategy session with avid cyclist and injury attorney Casey Arbenz. Casey has extensive experience on the bike, and in the courtroom handling bike injury cases as well. Casey and all of us at PLG will take your case personally and provide you with fervent representation.
