‘Wheels of Justice,' Helps Cyclists Understand the Settlement & Legal Process After A Collision

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

bicycle injury accident law legal guide book seattle attorney washington stateSeattle, WA - Seattle bicycle accident attorney Christopher M. Davis, has authored a new book written to help cyclists that have been injured in collisions protect their legal rights. The book, Wheels of Justice: The Essential Guide to Bicycle Accident Law in Washington State, discusses a topic that is every cyclist's worst nightmare - what to do when you have been injured in a serious accident with an automobile, other cyclist, or roadway obstacle.

Cycling saves energy, provides a greener alternative to motoring and is a part of a healthy lifestyle, yet nearly 1,000 people are killed every year in bicycle accidents in the United States.

"After a collision with an automobile, for example, cyclists must understand local laws and legal concepts that apply to their case such as ‘right of way,' the reciprocal duty of care that the motorist and bicyclist each has toward the other, and the different situations when a bicyclist is treated as a motorist or a pedestrian."

In Wheels of Justice, Davis offers basic facts about typical accident claims involving cyclists; defines the legal and settlement process for bicycle accident claims; gives tips on dealing with insurance companies; offers insight into how bicycle accident injury claims are valued; and discusses common questions and legal issues that are often present in bicycle collision cases, as well as the common pitfalls and traps to avoid. Davis also helps cyclists understand the pros and cons of hiring an attorney to represent their case.

The book is published by Word Association Press and is available for $24.95 at Amazon.com. As a public service to citizens in Washington State, for a limited time free copies are available through www.WashingtonAccidentBooks.com.
