Even the most experienced road cyclists cannot avoid accidents caused by distracted, aggressive, or impaired drivers. And because bicycles offer little protection to riders, crashes often result in severe injuries, or even death. If you’ve been injured in a bicycle accident, you deserve a law firm that understands the risks you face on the road.At Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin, we have several avid cyclists on our legal team. Attorney Tom Newlin has completed four cross-country bike rides and logs thousands of miles every year. Attorneys TC Newlin and Steve Fleschner have ridden extensively, and have competed in triathlons, including multiple Ironman races.
From our experience as cyclists, we know many drivers are safe and courteous—but some drivers simply don’t like bike riders and don’t want to share the road. We realize bike riders are often ignored, harassed, and endangered by drivers with road rage or who simply don’t want to slow down and pay attention while passing a cyclist.Like many of you, we have been run off the road by drivers who are texting or talking on their cell phones. We have been involved in bike wrecks, and our attorneys know how important it is for cyclists and vehicle drivers to ride and drive responsibly.
