With the increasing number of bicycles on Michigan roads, both bicyclists and motorists need to know and understand their rights. While our bicycling community here in Michigan is vibrant and growing, safety for cyclists still continues to lag behind.
We’re a law firm that understands the bicycling community. We believe that a person’s health is their most valuable possession. And when your health and wellbeing are taken away because of a driver’s negligence or recklessness, you deserve to have your rights defended.
While every one of our personal injury attorneys handles bicycle collision cases regularly, Bryan Waldman is the face of our bicycle group. A renowned personal injury lawyer and avid cyclist himself, you’ve likely heard of or seen Bryan at biking events across the state. In fact, Bryan has dedicated an entirely separate site, MichiganBicycleLaw.com, to educating cyclists and motorists about cyclist rights. In addition to this site, Bryan wrote “The Legal Handbook for Michigan Cyclists” which he regularly updates with changes in the law that affect the bicycling community. You can find a digital version of it on MichiganBicycleLaw.com, and a list of over 70 bike shops that keep it stocked around Michigan.
If you’re a bicyclist and were injured as the result of a crash with a motor vehicle and need representation, please contact us online or call us at 866.758.0031. Bryan, or another bike attorney team member, is happy to look over the specifics of your case and provide a free, confidential initial case review.
