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

Scientifically reconstructing bicycle accidents
One of the main causes of bicycle accidents is that drivers often fail to notice that the cyclist is even on the road. After a direct crash or a side-swipe, the driver’s most common defense is to say that the bicyclist was the one who made the mistake that caused the accident. 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 accidents to remove the uncertainty from the proceedings. Using arguments strengthened by scientific evidence, he seeks to show conclusively what happened and who is at fault.
Severe injuries result from bicycle accidents
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. Regardless of the accident’s outcome, M. Lawrence Lallande shows compassion and understanding for his clients’ suffering, and he has won multi-million dollar verdicts by making juries understand, too.
