Bicyclists are even more vulnerable than motorcyclists because they cannot always keep up with traffic. We have handled road rage cases in which a frustrated driver takes on a bicyclist or runs a bicyclist off the road because he or she is traveling under the posted speed limit. The bicyclist never wins in these collisions, but can recover fair compensation through aggressive representation. Because of the level of exposure, serious injuries are often sustained:
Attorney Scott M. Donaldson is an avid bicyclist. Both he and his wife, Tammy, are frequently involved in bicycle races and take part in the STP (Seattle to Portland) ride every summer. In 2007, they also rode in the RSVP, from Seattle to Vancouver, Canada. In 2009, the law office sponsored a bicycle team in Mike Utley’s DAM2DAM ride in Wenatchee, Washington. Mike Utley is the former Washington State Cougars and Detroit Lions football player who suffered fractures in his sixth and seventh cervical vertebrae. Mike funded the Mike Utley Foundation to search for a cure for spinal paralysis. Scott and Tammy are frequently on the road in training and exposed to the same dangers our injured clients face. He understands the misperceptions that many drivers and jurors have about bicyclists on the roadways and is experienced convincing the court to overcome these perceptions when advocating on behalf of his clients.
