About Us

Why We Bike

Our mission is to spread our love of cycling, make the community a safer place through community activism, and pursue justice for injured cyclists in the courts.

No sport has a tighter sense of community than the world of cyclists. There is something inherently communal about riding in packs with dozens of other cyclists riding shoulder-to-shoulder, wheel-to-wheel. There is also nothing more enjoyable for a child, than to experience the freedom of having a set of wheels beneath your seat zooming down the driveway and transporting you out into the world.

But once you hop on a bike, it doesn’t take long before you realize how precarious traveling can be for cyclists and pedestrians. While people come from all corners of the globe to visit here – many choosing to experience the city on a bike — Savannah poses many challenges for two-wheeled vehicles and foot traffic. The city is certainly more bike-friendly than anywhere else I have ever lived, but we could do so much more to make the city safer for bikes and pedestrians. Our firm is dedicated to striving for safer communities by supporting cycling and pedestrian advocacy groups in our community and throughout Georgia.

As a trial lawyer representing accident victims, I also see first-hand the impact that cycling crashes can have for victims and their families. There is no sugar-coating it — cycling on a public roadway is dangerous. Bikes weighing twenty pounds offer no protection when colliding with vehicles traveling faster and which weigh more than a ton. Unfortunately, automobile collisions do happen. These crashes can lead to serious broken limbs, brain injuries and more than 700 cyclists died in the United States in 2017, according to statistics from the National Highway Traffic & Safety Administration. More than 5,000 pedestrians were killed by motor vehicles, according to the NHTSA. When these tragedies occur, our firm is dedicated to holding the at-fault drivers accountable in the courts by recovering damages for the victims and their families.
