Our Seattle bicycle injury lawyers have obtained record breaking settlements/verdicts on behalf of our clients. When a cyclist is involved in an accident, the injuries are often more serious and often include spinal cord injuries and/or brain injuries. Unlike a driver, the bicyclist does not have all of that metal as protection. A seriously injured cyclist should treat the accident just like it was a car-only accident. Get the insurance information and drivers license of all of the parties involved. Then, consult with an attorney who has solid experience in representing injured cyclists.
The bike injury accident lawyers at Stritmatter have helped countless injured cyclists. One of our recent, high profile cases include Gendler, where our attorneys represented a cyclist who was injured on the Montlake Bridge.
Despite clear information that the Montlake Bridge posed a serious risk to cyclists, Washington State did nothing. As a result, Mr. Gendler seriously injured himself on a bicycle and is now a quadriplegic. Read more about the Gendler case.
