Kansas City Bicycle Accident Attorneys
Representing Victims with Dedication & Skill
There is no such thing as a minor accident involving a bicycle. If a car hits a bike, the person on the bike is usually hurt and hurt badly. While motorists are protected by seat belts and airbags inside an enclosed cabin, bicyclists are dangerously exposed. If you or a family member was struck by a car while riding a bike, the team at Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C. may be able to help. Our Kansas City bicycle accident lawyers have 40+ years of combined experience representing accident victims.

Protecting Bicyclists in Missouri & Kansas
While more and more people are choosing to ride bikes this day for health and environmental reasons, our road system was not designed to accommodate bicycles. Many streets are narrow and there are few bike lanes. While motorists have an obligation to share the road with bicyclists, many drivers fail to yield to bicyclists.
Most bike accidents occur at intersections and other places where cars and bikes are likely to meet, such as school areas and parks. Common accidents include:
- Making a right or left turn in front of a bicyclist
- Clipping a bicycle when passing
- Opening the door of a parked car in front of bicyclists
- Hitting a bike when turning into or out of a private driveway
Our lawyers will work hard to recover compensation to cover your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and future expenses. We also represent families in cases of fatal bike accidents.
