Denver Bicycle Accident Lawyers
Colorado’s Cycling Advocates
HERE IS WHY THE WEISS LAW FIRM IS DIFFERENT:
1. Not only are we experienced lawyers – we are also experienced cyclists
Brian Weiss is a skilled personal injury lawyer with more than 20 years of legal experience in representing all types of accident victims. He has been a lawyer since 1994 and represented over one hundred bicycle riders who have been injured in crashes in Colorado. Brian is also experienced cyclists and advocates for the Colorado cycling community. As a cyclist, he understands the unique aspects of a bike crash case that can make these types of cases more difficult than any other types of personal injury accident claim. An attorney who is not familiar with cycling, and the unique dangers cyclists face when riding on the roads of Colorado, can easily overlook crucial case details than can have a negative impact on the value of your case.
Brian handles all aspects of the crash so that his clients can focus on getting better and hopefully back to what they want to do, like riding a bike. In fact, he has done this so well that over the last 10 years he has collected over $12 million on behalf of his clients.
We have published “The Rules of the Road for Colorado Cyclists”, widely available in bike shops throughout the Denver Metro area, to educate riders on their rights and responsibilities on Colorado roads.

2. We will gladly tell you if you do not need a lawyer
Unlike the large personal injury firms you may see on t.v., we only take a small portion of the cases that we receive calls about. However, we like to personally speak with every cyclist that calls our office with questions about their accident. Even if we do not take your case, we offer this as a benefit to all members of the Colorado cycling community.
Many bike accident cases can actually be handled easily by the client on their own without the need for an attorney to do a little bit of work and take a large share of the case proceeds. You can take this quick and easy test to determine if our firm can help you on your case.
As a further benefit to the Colorado cycling community, we have published “The Colorado Personal Injury Claim Guidebook” explaining the accident claims process and how many bike accident victims can easily handle a simple claim without hiring a lawyer.
3. We want you to talk to other attorneys before you decide to hire us
We never pressure clients to sign up with our firm at the first meeting. This is the time to get to know us and get your initial questions answered – both about your accident claim and the experience of any attorney you may consider hiring.
To assist you in this decision, we have prepared a list of questions in our guidebook you should ask any attorney with whom you meet. You will notice that none of the questions focus on the attorney’s racing experience or what bicycle teams they have sponsored. As proud as we are of our cycling advocacy efforts, we believe that it is our experience against the insurance companies both inside and outside of the courtroom that you should be concerned about.
If you decide to hire our firm, we will be working closely together for months or, in serious cases, even years. We feel it is very important that you are comfortable and confident that you have the right team on your side from the very beginning.
Brian works directly with each client. We got into this business to help people negotiate through a difficult time in their lives against a system where the deck is stacked against them. Read our results and reviews.
NOTE: WHEN TO RUN AWAY FROM ANOTHER LAW FIRM
If any firm sends an investigator or non-lawyer staff member to sign you up as a client – be very careful. These people are known as “runners” and you should run from them. If you are not important enough for the attorneys to meet with you at the start of the case, then it is a clear sign of the level of attention you will receive throughout the rest of the case.
