In many other countries around the world, bicycles are as common of a form of transportation as cars. But because cars are so dominant here in the United States, many drivers don’t respect the cyclist’s right to the road, and a driver’s carelessness can cause a crash that changes a cyclist’s life in a second.


Scientifically reconstructing bicycle accidents. One of the main causes of bicycle crashes is that drivers often fail to notice that the cyclist is even on the road. After a direct crash or a sideswipe, the driver’s most common defense is to say that the bicyclist was the one who made the mistake that caused the crash. Many times in court, this sort of allegation leads to a “he said / she said” situation where the judge has no way of knowing whom to believe. With a background in science and a solid understanding of physics, M. Lawrence Lallande is able to reconstruct crashes to remove the uncertainty from the proceedings. Using arguments strengthened by scientific evidence, Lallande Law, PLC seeks to show conclusively what happened and who is at fault.


Because a bicycle gives its rider so little protection, bike riders who are involved in crashes have the potential to suffer very serious injuries. This can include broken bones, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, and even wrongful death. At Lallande Law, PLC, we understand the suffering of our clients with severe injuries and have won multi-million dollar settlements and verdicts by making juries understand too.
