We focus our client advocacy resources on assault and reckless driving incidents without collisions because historically no one represents these cases.
There are thousands of attorneys specializing in cycling related personal injury cases involving a collision, typically because these cases are easier to pursue and the insurance settlement will cover the cost of attorney fees.
This site documents that it has been very difficult to get law enforcement to accept cyclists' criminal near miss incident reports without a collision, even with irrefutable cyclist video evidence. Assault and reckless driving laws do not require a collision.
We have two types of cases in which we invest our client advocacy resources : Pro Bono cases and Fee Based cases.
Pro Bono Cases
We occasionally take on Pro Bono cases based on the broad impact the case can have on cycling safety, beyond the specific incident, and the legal system.
The Castro Valley California Assault and Reckless Driving Case
In 2014 we took on the Castro Valley Case. We worked on the case from when the assault and reckless driving incident occurred to when the statue of limitations expired. We continue sharing lessons learned and best practices from this case.
The Glendale California Assault and Reckless Driving Case
In 2016 we took on the Glendale Case. We worked on the case from when the assault and reckless driving incident occurred to the successful conviction of Dennis Reed. We continue sharing lessons learned and best practices from this case.
Fee Based Cases
We also take on Fee Based cases. Please use the form below if you are interested in a free consultation.
