Protect Your Rights

Oregon Bicycle Accident Attorney

You have been injured in a bicycle accident and you are worried about who is going to pay your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The last thing you want is to be taken advantage of by an insurance company.

If you don't protect your rights, you may not be able to make a claim. Insurance companies have attorneys and adjusters whose goal is to pay you as little as they can. You need an experienced Oregon bicycle accident attorney with PROVEN RESULTS to fight for you.

Why should you hire Portland bicycle lawyer Mike Colbach?

Proven Results. I can make insurance companies pay when they do not want to by taking your case to a jury. Having an experienced Oregon bike accident attorney can make the difference between getting what you deserve and getting nothing.

Top Multnomah County auto accident verdicts.

A judge recently showed me the list of top Multnomah County motor vehicle verdicts. According to this list, two of the top ten verdicts are car accident cases that I tried to a jury. I have two of the top 4 Multnomah County auto accident jury verdicts since 2014. Some of these trials and verdicts were reported on by the Portland media:

Mike's Press

Unlike many lawyers, I know how expensive bicycles can be.

I work hard to make sure you are fully compensated for your bicycle damage. I know what it is like to spend thousands of dollars on a bicycle only to have it damaged by someone else.

I work closely with local bicycle shops to try and get you full replacement value for your damaged bicycle and bicycle gear.

Hire an attorney who is also a cyclist.

Mike Colbach Portland, Oregon bircycle accident attorney and trial lawyer with proven results.

I am a former road and cyclocross racer and current bicycle commuter. I started riding seriously in the mid 1990's when I sold my car and used my bicycle to commute from Wilsonville to Portland daily. When I moved into Portland in the late 1990's I began racing bicycles to get in the miles. I raced for the Presto Velo team, which is now the Bicycleattorney.com/racing team and I am their main cash sponsor.

I have raced stage races, crits, time trials, and cyclocross. I have put in over 30,000 miles on my bike and know what it is like to have to deal with careless drivers.

I try very hard to help injured cyclists, as oftentimes motorists try and blame the cyclists just because they are on a bike.

140 Trials. 25 Years Experience.

An experienced and effective trial lawyer can make the difference. Without the threat of a lawyer who is willing to go to trial and seek a big jury verdict, why would an insurance company pay you what your claim is really worth?

Lawsuits can be expensive.

Many people do not have the money to pursue their claim. In every case, I advance all costs associated with pursuing your case.

I do not ask you for a penny until we recover from the other side.

Proven Results. 1-On-1 Service.

I am not afraid to take your case to trial if that is what it takes to maximize your Oregon bicycle accident insurance recovery. I offer one-on-one service, and I wil not hand your case off to an inexperienced lawyer or a paralegal.

Reduce the stress of making an insurance claim.

Bicycle accident injuries can turn your life upside down.

Making an insurance claim can be difficult and time consuming.

Once I take your case, you can stop worrying about dealing with the insurance companies and focus on recovering from your bicycle accident injuries. I take care of all of the paperwork, phone calls, and negotiations, so you can get on with your life.

No Win = No Fee

I handle Oregon bicycle accident cases on a contingency fee basis. This means:

You don't owe me a legal fee unless I recover money for you.
