Thousands of people ride their bicycles on Seattle’s streets every day, but unfortunately some are involved in collisions. And while bicyclists have all the rights and duties as any car driver, they usually pay the price and suffer the brunt of the damage in these incidents.
Whether it’s a distracted driver or an impaired driver, there’s no excuse for many of Seattle’s bike crashes. Because bicyclists are relatively unprotected — usually wearing only a helmet, if that — these collisions almost always result in serious injuries. In extreme scenarios involving speeding drivers, a cyclist may be killed.
If you were injured in a bike accident, the attorneys at Seattle-based Davis Law Group can help you take legal action. You should not have to pay the price for someone else’s mistakes.

How Much Does A Bicycle Accident Lawyer Cost?
When you hire a bike accident attorney to represent you in legal action against the insurance company, you won’t pay a dime unless you win your case. That’s right. Davis Law Group attorneys operate on what’s known as a contingency fee basis, meaning they paid a percentage of the final settlement that you receive. There are no running costs or fees — you simply pay a flat amount at the end of your case.
This setup allows you to hire an attorney even if you don’t have the money upfront. It also incentivizes the lawyer and their legal staff to maximize the settlement, which benefits both the law firm and your wallet.
When Do I Know If I Need A Bicycle Accident Attorney?
The most important thing to do after a bike accident is to receive medical attention. While some injuries may be obvious, head trauma and internal injuries are not. Seeking a professional opinion on your injuries should be your No. 1 priority, and could mean the difference in securing maximum compensation.
After your medical condition has stabilized, you should begin looking for an attorney as soon as possible. Many bicycle accident victims wait days or months to pursue a case, but the time lapse can hinder your chances at obtaining the highest amount of compensation. Crucial evidence may be lost, and with it your ability to hold the at fault driver accountable.
Contact a lawyer before you speak with insurance adjusters from driver. An experienced attorney can guide you through the process and make sure that you are making informed decisions every step of the way. Talking to the insurance company on your own could jeopardize your potential settlement.
