Bicycle Accident Victims Need A Lawyer That Understands Two Wheels 

Most often, such collisions are caused by negligent automobile or truck drivers, who don’t pay proper attention to bicyclists legally sharing the roadway. Road conditions that would not impact a car or truck can create extreme hazards for bicyclists. They can also be the victims of defective products, from poorly-made helmets to faulty components of their bike. If you or a family member have been injured in a bicycle accident, or you have been the victim of a hit and run accident, you need the help of Walnut Creek, CA, attorney Scott Sumner, who understands the perspective of a bicyclist, as well as the law.

Twice a serious accident victim himself on two wheels, Scott Sumner can uniquely appreciate the road to recovery and the loss of personal activities and freedom that comes with such injuries.
