Hire an attorney who is also a cyclist. I have been an avid cyclist for over thirty-five years. I know what it is like to deal with careless drivers. I have been involved in bicycle accidents myself so I understand how it feels to end up on the pavement when you did nothing wrong.
Experience counts. I have over twenty-five years of experience in personal injury cases including bicycle accident claims. If you have been injured in a bicycle accident, you may be worried about who is going to pay your medical bills, your lost wages and your pain and suffering. Don’t let the insurance company take advantage of you. The insurance company has adjusters and attorneys working for them to try to pay you as little as possible. You need an experienced bicycle accident attorney on your side to fight for your rights.
Personal service. At the Law Office of Douglas J. Meis, your case will be handled by me, Douglas J. Meis. There are no junior associates or case managers so you will receive one-on-one service from your attorney. Your case will not be handed off to an inexperienced attorney or a paralegal.
Stop worrying about your case. The trauma of an accident is difficult enough. Once I take you case, you can stop worrying about your claim. You should be able to focus on recovering from your injuries while I take care of dealing with the insurance company.
LOWER FEES. As a fellow cyclist, I want to do my part to give back to cycling community and I do bicycle accident cases because I really want to help injured cyclists. One way I can do this is by charging lower fees than most personal injury lawyers. In most cases, my attorney fee will be 25% and not the 33% that most personal injury lawyers charge. There are no up front fees. I handle all bicycle accident cases on a contingency fee basis.
YOU DON’T OWE ME A LEGAL FEE UNLESS I RECOVER MONEY FOR YOU. As a cyclist, I also know how expensive bicycles can be. I will work closely with local bicycle shops to try and get you full replacement value for your damaged bicycle and bicycle gear.
