Attorney Fighting For Your Family After A Bicycle Collision
A bicyclist is fatally injured somewhere in the U.S. every six hours. Head injuries – including concussions and brain injuries – account for the vast majority of injuries and deaths from bicycle accidents. Injuries to bike riders and passengers are often fatal because of the bike’s lack of protection. A bicycle is no match for a car, truck or SUV that weighs thousands of pounds. Drivers and their insurance companies must be held accountable for the injuries and deaths they cause. If you were struck while riding your bicycle in Anchorage or elsewhere in Alaska, you need quality personal injury legal representation that protects your rights.
For more than 45 years, our law firm’s respected founding attorney Michael J. Schneider has successfully handled bicycle injury cases by confronting insurance companies with hard, cold facts about the accident that injured you – factors such as proof of negligent or distracted driver behavior, drunk driving, defective bicycle parts, dangerous roadway conditions and aggressive defense of your rights when law enforcement mistakenly concludes that you, the bike rider, is the cause of an accident. Attorney Schneider exhaustively researches every element of a bicycle accident, hiring experts, examining police reports, interviewing witnesses and obtaining photos taken at the scene of the accident.
Aggressively Protecting Your Right To Maximum Financial Compensation
In most if not all bicycle accidents, a negligent, inattentive or distracted driver:
- Fails to look both ways when driving from or through a stop sign or stop light
- Turns directly in front of a bicyclist
- Enters a street from a driveway or parking space, and swerves into traffic in front of a bicyclist
- Is driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Fails to yield at an intersection
- Does not stop at a red light or stop sign
- Is not paying attention while driving past a bicyclist
