Turn To A Dedicated And Effective Cleveland Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Scott M. Kuboff, Esq. is an avid cyclist and a Cleveland bicycle accident lawyer with the law firm of Ibold & O’Brien who helps his cyclists receive fair and just compensation for injuries sustained while riding their bicycles.

Although many communities have been welcoming cyclists with the addition of designated bike lanes, sharrows, and other bike-friendly amenities, and despite the passage of Ohio House Bill 154 (3-Foot passing law), cyclists still must navigate roadways along with motor vehicles. This can be intimidating for a new or young rider and is no less dangerous for an experienced cyclist. Throw in deteriorating roads, debris, defective products, occasional appearances of dogs, or the sketchy rider in the group ride and a simple bike ride can be a precarious activity.

Serious, Severe And Fatal Injuries

While most bicycling accidents leave cyclists with some bruises and road rash, unfortunately, too often, there are painful reminders of the vulnerability of riding your bicycle, as some accidents result in catastrophic, life-threatening and fatal harm.

As an accomplished Cleveland bicycle accident attorney and cyclist, Scott M. Kuboff will tirelessly work on your behalf to hold the negligent driver accountable. He will protect your interests after you have been injured in any of the most common causes of bicycle vs. car accident scenarios, such as::

  • “Right hook” – Driver passes the cyclist and immediately turns right into the path of the cyclist
  • “Left cross” – Driver travels toward the cyclist and makes a left turn into the path of the cyclist
  • Getting “doored” – Passing a parked car as the driver opens the door
  • Cars passing immediately before red lights or stop signs and slamming on brakes
  • Passing in curves or double yellows or with oncoming traffic
  • Failing to stop or running a red light
  • Failing to signal or yield the right of way
