The Bike Accident Law Firm Serving Phoenix
Bike Accident Info
Bicycle accidents in Arizona can cause untold devastation to the victims and their families. In any collision between a bicycle and another vehicle, the cyclist will always suffer far worse consequences—especially at high speeds.
Most bicycle accidents in Arizona occur in urban areas, such as downtown Phoenix. Dozens of people are killed every year in these crashes in our state alone, and Arizona also happens to be one of the deadliest states in the country when it comes to cycling accidents.
In a bicycle accident, some injuries are more common—such as damage to the legs where a vehicle first made contact, or head injuries where the victim fell to the ground. Some of the most common types of injuries suffered during bicycle accidents are:
If someone else is responsible for your accident, it’s only fair that they’re held responsible financially. In an ideal world, seeking compensation would be simple. Sadly, there are many cases where the other side won’t pay what you deserve.
That’s where Blackwell Ruiz comes in. When you or a loved one are hurt in a bicycle accident in the state of Arizona, we’re here to make things right. We’ll help guide you through this complicated legal process, secure your future, and win the compensation you truly deserve.
Slip & Fall: $150k Recovered
Mr. Ruiz, in my opinion, fought and won an unwinn-able lawsuit with Bank of America for me. He kept digging until he found enough evidence to convince them they could not win. I have nothing but praise for Lawrence and would gladly hire him again if the need ever arose.

Our team has experience building cases, negotiating settlements, and winning verdicts for all manner of personal injury cases—including bicycle injuries. If you’ve been the victim of a distracted, drunk or careless driver, we want to talk.

Your typical Phoenix bicycle accident injury lawyers (including Blackwell Ruiz) charge based on contingency, which means you pay a percentage of your total payout after we win your case. Other law firms may have different pricing.
You’re not legally required to hire an attorney. However, unless your case is very simple or it involves a small amount of money, you are likely better off hiring professional help. The fact is that clients who self-represent typically see smaller payouts.
If you were injured by another driver in a bicycle accident Phoenix AZ, you might have a case. However, it’s impossible to know for sure unless you’ve consulted with an experienced personal injury attorney like the professionals at Blackwell Ruiz.
We believe you have enough to stress about after an accident. We don’t charge you any fees until we’ve reached a settlement or verdict with the responsible party, and we also offer free case evaluations and consultations.
The time it takes to reach your desired payout will vary from case to case. A general rule of thumb is that more complicated cases (and cases where more money is on the line) will often take longer to resolve.
Our number one priority is helping you achieve a fair payout, and we’re often able to achieve that without taking your case to court. However, sometimes the other side is unwilling to negotiate—know that we’ll fight for you both inside and outside the courtroom.
If you can, try to collect as much information about the accident as possible—photographs, witness testimony, insurance information, etc. But most importantly, seek medical assistance (even if you don’t feel hurt).
The time limit you have to file your personal injury case is called a statute of limitations. In Arizona, these laws are somewhat complex, and can vary based on your specific injury. Contact a lawyer ASAP to make sure you meet your filing deadline.
If a lawyer claims to know how much your case is worth, realize that they’re probably just trying to sign you on as a new client. The truth is that case value is very difficult to estimate until your case progresses, and is based on numerous factors such as insurance and state maximums.
One of the dangerous things about vehicle accidents is that some injuries can take days, weeks, or even months to fully manifest. Even if you don’t feel hurt, you should still seek medical attention and contact a lawyer to find out if you have a case.
