When you are involved in a cycling accident, you need a law firm that is familiar with building up claims the best way to maximize your financial recovery at the end of your case. At Cook, Bradford & Levy, LLC, our Lafayette cycling accident lawyers have retained liability experts in areas such as accident reconstruction, human factors, and bicycling rules of the road to help prove that it was the motor vehicle’s driver, and not the cyclist, who was at fault for the accident. We have also worked with tech savvy cyclists who are experts in using information from GPS units like Strava to help build the case and show that what the cyclist was doing at the time of the crash was safe. Because eyewitness statements are often critical to establish what the injured cyclist was doing before he or she was hit, we use a team of investigators to interview any witnesses, the best of whom are usually other cyclists with whom the injured cyclist was riding.Contingency Fee Program
At Cook, Bradford & Levy, our Lafayette bicycle accident lawyers believe in the principle of access to justice, or that everyone should have an attorney regardless of their income level. We are able to solve this problem by offering a contingency fee arrangement whereby you do not need to pay us anything up front to get us started working on your case. Rather, a contingency fee means that we get paid a percentage of your gross recover at the conclusion of your case, which is usually 33% if your case does not involve litigation. Moreover, if we are unable to obtain a financial settlement or verdict for you, you owe us nothing.
