Foley & Small has handled a variety of bicycle accident claims arising in Indiana and southern Michigan. In fact, attorney Doug Small is an avid bicyclist participating in bicycling events throughout the Midwest. Foley & Small employs the services of bicycle experts and accident reconstructionists to develop the case and make a persuasive presentation at trial. Foley & Small also retains investigators to obtain incident reports, take witness statements, obtain scene photographs and complete other fact investigation of the crash.
As is the case with many motorcycle accidents, many of the bicycling accident cases Foley & Small has handled involves a situation where the driver of the car or truck in the collision states that he or she did not see the bicyclist. Bicycling crashes can happen in a variety of ways, including where a car or truck pulls out from a side road in front of a bicyclist, fails to yield for a bicyclist at an intersection, strikes the bicyclist from behind or turns in front of the bicyclist.

Foley & Small’s familiarity and personal experience with bicycling and in handling claims involving bicycle accidents makes them well prepared and knowledgeable to handle such claims. Injuries suffered by a bicyclist in a collision with a motor vehicle could be severe, if not life threatening, given the lack of vehicle protection when riding a bicycle as compared to a car or truck. Foley & Small is experienced in the presentation of evidence of injury so that a jury can truly appreciate the losses and consequences of a bicycle collision and thereby be better able to enter a verdict which fully and fairly compensates our bicycling client.
