Representing Hawaii Bicycle Accident Survivors
As those familiar with Honolulu’s roads know the traffic lanes are narrow and clogged. Drivers are on cellphones and texting. There simply aren’t enough bike lanes and even those that we have are risky due to erratic driving and disregard for safety on part of motorists.
Some basic safety rules include:
- Wearing a helmet
- Obeying all traffic control signals
- Using hand signals to alert drivers to turns and lane changes
- Staying alert to all roadway conditions
- Using lights and reflectors after dark
I am Jan Weinberg, a seasoned motor vehicle accident lawyer and the founder of Law Offices of Jan M. Weinberg. I know how to prepare a case to obtain the best possible recovery on behalf of my clients.
For example, I represented a Navy chief warrant officer injured when a tour bus made a wide left turn and struck him in the bike lane. The driver claimed that the bicyclist veered into his lane of travel and that the collision was unavoidable. My client was thrown off his bike and suffered a spinal cord injury. My accident reconstruction included a re-enactment of the collision filmed overhead from a helicopter. The reconstruction demonstrated that the bus company’s version of events was wrong. I won the client a confidential, multiple seven-figure settlement against the tour bus company. You can read more about my law firm’s successful results.
