Bicycle Accidents

Aggressive Charlottesville Attorney Fights for Bicycle Accident Victims

Virginia law firm pursues compensation for riders injured in crashes with motor vehicles

Riding a bicycle is an activity that provides physical and emotional rewards. However, busy roads and inattentive drivers can trigger a devastating accident in a split second. When this occurs, my firm, The Law Office of David M. Erwin, can help clients seek compensation for medical costs, lost wages, pain and disability resulting from the crash. When bike riders are on the road with cars and trucks, they are at a disadvantage due to the massive imbalance in weight and power. I help ensure that your legal rights are protected in the event of an accident.

Relentless advocate works to hold negligent drivers accountable

Even with the large number of bicycles on the road today, car and truck drivers often fail to take proper precautions. I thoroughly investigate each matter to determine whether evidence of negligence exists. Bikes can be especially vulnerable when other common vehicle accident causes are present, such as:

  • Distraction due to cellphones or other devices
  • Unsafe speed
  • Failure to adhere to traffic rules and directions
  • Hazardous conditions
  • Drowsy driving
  • Impairment due to consumption of alcohol or drugs

I understand that the trauma of a serious accident often leads to difficulty recalling specific details of the incident. I will work with witnesses, gather physical evidence, and call upon experts when necessary to build the strongest possible case.
