If you have been involved in a bicycle collision with a driver, bicyclist or pedestrian, you don’t want an inexperienced personal injury lawyer or a lawyer who dabbles in all kinds of accident law. You need an experienced cyclist to represent you in your bicycle personal injury case. Many attorneys claim to focus on representing injured cyclists, but Washington bicycle accident attorney Stacie Bain not only knows bicycle law, she is an avid cyclist like you. She bike commutes. She knows the streets. And she knows your rights.
Getting hit while riding is traumatic. Getting your damages paid shouldn't add more trauma or stress to your life. If you got hit by a car while riding your bike, the at-fault driver's insurance company and its defense lawyers may try to blame you for the collision and will minimize the nature and extent of your injuries. The best thing you can do to reduce your anxiety, protect yourself and maximize your compensation is to hire an experienced bike lawyer to work on your case for you. As an avid cyclist for over 30 years, Stacie knows what arguments to make to prove liability for your case, especially when the at-fault driver claims they didn't see you or that you were not riding safely. Not seeing a cyclist who is there to be seen is not an excuse. The driver is still liable. If you did not come into contact with the vehicle but you had to swerve to avoid a driver who cut you off and crashed while doing so, the driver is still liable. Hiring an expert in Washington cycling laws is vital to proving your case and maximizing the value of your recovery.
Many attorneys claim to be bike lawyers, but most are just occasional riders who have no idea what it's like to regularly ride in traffic. Stacie is a daily bike commuter, a former bike messenger, a family cyclist and a utility cyclist. She has worked in bike shops, she has ridden professionally and she supports our cycling community through legislative activism and monetary sponsorships. Logging thousands of hours in the saddle and being part of the biker tribe is what makes Stacie so passionate about working with her fellow cyclists! If your attorney doesn't ride a bike, he or she may not know what arguments to make to prove liability for your case and may not understand why you want to get back in the saddle as soon as possible. Stacie encourages her clients to work hard on their recovery so they can get back to riding. As a former competitive cyclist and gymnast, Stacie understands how devastating an injury can be when you want nothing more than to get back to being active.
