Getting Bicycle Accident Victims The Compensation They Deserve
Washington state and the Seattle metropolitan area have earned a strong reputation for being accommodating to bicyclists. In fact, the League of American Bicyclists ranked Washington the most bike-friendly state in America from 2007 to 2013. Even in this welcoming environment, however, some drivers fail to share the road with bicyclists.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a bicycle accident, it is important to work closely with a lawyer who will work diligently to help you recover full and fair compensation for your injuries.
From our office in Edmonds, we at the Law Office of James A. Conley have extensive experience representing injured people across Western Washington. Attorney James A. Conley has practiced law since 1990 and knows how to prepare a strong case that accounts for your present and future medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. He has extensive experience working with insurers and knows how to get results. He can do the same for you and your loved ones.
We Will Fight For Compensation For All Your Injuries
While bike helmets reduce the risk of head injuries, the fact is that bicyclists are at risk for serious injuries — including brain and other catastrophic injuries — in any type of cycling accident. For instance, bicyclists can break their wrists while trying to break their fall or suffer damage to internal organs because of crush injuries. Other injuries can include:
- Broken bones
- Torn ligaments or tendons
- Back or spinal cord injuries
- Head injuries
- Severe lacerations
- Soft tissue damage and bruising
Any of these injuries could require lengthy recovery time, time away from work and even post-traumatic stress disorder or other psychological issues.
Our personal injury attorney will gather all of the evidence of your injuries and the other party’s liability. By doing so, we will build a case that accounts for all of your damages. By preparing each and every case for trial, we are often able to settle cases favorably for our clients prior to trial. As your case progresses, we will provide regular updates and make ourselves available to answer your questions and address your concerns.

We Will Negotiate With Insurance Companies On Your Behalf
One of the many benefits of working with our law firm is the fact we understand how insurance adjusters think and act, especially when it comes to bicycle accidents claims. Drivers — and sometimes even adjusters — are quick to place blame on bicyclists before considering what really happened. As such, injured bicyclists may face unnecessary pushback from the insurance company, which can create frustration and leave victims unsure of how to proceed.
Attorney James A. Conley has past experience as an insurance defense lawyer. He knows how insurance companies operate and uses this to develop creative strategies to combat delay and denial tactics. His skill as a negotiator and litigator allow him to resolve insurance claims quickly and in his client’s best interests. From the start of your claim to the final settlement check, you can rest assured knowing you are getting the best possible outcome.
