Portland Bicycle Accident Attorney
A bicycle accident can happen in an instant, but the effects can last a lifetime. At The Johnston Law Firm, LLC, we understand how devastating a serious bicycle injury can be for a cyclist and his or her family. If you have been seriously injured in a bicycle accident, you probably have questions about who is going to pay your medical bills and lost wages in addition to how you can be compensated for your pain and suffering. Our Portland, Oregon, law firm has a proven and winning track record for representing bicyclists against the drivers who injure them.
Motorists have insurance to compensate the bicyclists they injure. While nothing can take the injury away, working with a Portland bicycle accident lawyer is the best way to gain full and fair compensation for the harm you have experienced.
The Johnston Law Firm is widely respected for negotiating excellent settlements on behalf of our injured clients. If the insurance company will not offer you fair compensation for your injuries and damages, we will pursue your rights by filing a lawsuit against the driver who injured you. Damages compensate injury victims for medical expenses, lost wages (including future lost wages), pain and emotional trauma, and future medical care. We pursue these damages forcefully on our clients’ behalf. Contact us today. Do not make any of the common personal injury case mistakes.
Skilled, Knowledgeable and Diligent Advocacy
We represent clients who have been injured in a broad spectrum of circumstances, including bike accidents, car accidents, truck accidents and other accidents that were not their fault. We also represent the surviving families of people killed in fatal accidents of all kinds.
If our Portland personal injury law firm takes your case, attorney Marc A. Johnston will begin an immediate investigation into the cause of your accident. Sometimes important factors are not obvious until the investigation begins. For example, dangerous and defective roads may also be to blame, and the actions of drunk drivers can often be linked to bicycle accidents.
Portland is home to the most bike riders per capita and the most bike commuters (6 percent of commuters) than any other city in country.
Extra Precaution and Protection for Cyclists
With all the bikes on road, cars need to be extremely attentive, check their blind spots before making any turns or changing lanes, be observant of bike lanes and remember that cyclists share the road with the same rights and privileges as motor vehicle drivers.
Regardless of the factors involved in a bicycle accident, our aim is to develop the strongest case we can based on our knowledge of the law and its application to the facts of our clients’ cases. To do this we use years of successful trial results, and the experience we have gained in handling more than 800 personal injury cases.
In pursuit of the best possible results for our bicycle accident cases, we partner with Portland and Oregon bicycle advocacy organizations, including:
