I know first hand the pain and frustration a cyclist feels after being victimized in a bicycle wreck. I have fractured both collarbones, dislocated my shoulder, and shattered my eye orbit, cheek bone, both sinuses, clavicle and 3 ribs. Recovery was difficult and slow, but the process helped me better understand first hand the cases I represent. Your case is not just another business opportunity. As an avid cyclist and advocate I will not be satisfied with anything less than the maximum results.
