Prepare for winter bicycle riding in the Seattle area

The cold winter months are here, but some Seattle residents are still going to brave the wintry precipitation and frigid temperatures to enjoy time on their bike. Before you head out on a ride, you have to ensure that you've taken proper steps to stay safe.

A properly fitted helmet is integral to safety while biking

People are reminded all the time of the importance of wearing a helmet if they are riding their bike in Washington. What is interesting to note is that an ill-fitted helmet cannot provide nearly the protection as one that has been carefully selected to fit a person's head and face. 

Teaching kids to wear bike helmets

Getting around by bicycle is a common way of life for many residents of Washington, and if you are among those who prefer to get from here to there on two wheels, rather than four, you may be working to instill a similar mindset in your children. At Dean Standish Perkins & Associates, we recognize that the earlier you teach your child safe cycling practices, the more likely he or she will be to adopt them for life, and we also recognize the critical nature of teaching your children to wear bike helmets.

Seattle's most dangerous intersections for cyclists

While, comparatively speaking, Seattle, Washington, is a relatively safe place to ride a bike, there are certain areas of the city that prove more dangerous than others for cyclists. At Dean Standish Perkins & Associates, we recognize that, while crashes involving bikes and vehicles can occur anywhere, there are certain parts of Seattle that see more serious bike crashes than others.

If Biking to Work Goes Bad

Making your bicycle commute a rewarding and safe experience

Commuting to work on your bicycle in Washington can be an excellent way for you to simultaneously enjoy nature, get some exercise and save on valuable resources like money or fuel for your car. At Dean Standish Perkins & Associates, we have been able to help victims of bicycle accidents in their efforts to get compensation for their injuries. 

Putting community first

At Dean Standish Perkins & Associates, we feel that Seattle would be a better place if we no longer had any work to do. In fact, part of our work as Washington injury lawyers is to attempt to put ourselves out of a job -- by making the state as safe as possible.

Road construction and bicycle accidents

Bicyclists face all sorts of hazards, but the summer months may introduce additional risk factors that can increase the chances of something going wrong on the road. For example, road construction can pose a number of risks to bicyclists as well as drivers and pedestrians. Work zones can be dangerous for many reasons and a number of people have been hurt in accidents occurring in these environments. If you encounter a work zone while riding your bicycle, it is imperative to be particularly cautious.

What are ways to protect your child from bicycle accidents?

Like many Washington residents, you may remember the fun and freedom of riding a bike as a child and want your kids to have the same enjoyable experience. However, you may also worry about the risk of accidents and injuries. There are many ways that you may reduce the risk of an accident by helping your child learn to ride safely.

Can drivers and bicyclists cohabit the road peacefully?

Seattle residents often worry about transportation situations. Buses, trucks, cars, bikes, motorcycles and pedestrians all share the road. In a cramped and hectic city like Seattle, this can be a big problem. So how can you work together to share the road safely with other types of vehicles? Today, we'll focus on drivers and bicyclists.
