Practice Area: Bicycle Matters

BICYCLE V. CAR

The most dangerous thing to a bicyclist is the car next to them. Cars have blind spots, are not nimble, and often drivers aren’t looking out for or sharing the road with bicyclists. Regardless of the reason, the result can be catastrophic for the rider because they lack a protective cocoon enjoyed by the vehicle driver. It is an unfair contest where the bicyclist always loses.

Brandi Lawyers only represent the bicyclist in these matters. We understand the mechanics of bicycle accidents and use the best experts in the field to help explain to the jury exactly how collisions occur.

Brandi Lawyers do more than just look at the interaction between the vehicle and bicycle to determine how the collision occurred. Many municipalities have taken great steps to protect cyclists by creating buffer zones, dedicated lanes, and pavement markings that address the bike/car conflict. In every case we also examine the roadway marking and delineations, or their absence, to determine whether there was another contributing factor to the bicyclist’s injury.
