Looking for a bicycle accident lawyer? We’re here for you.
As a cyclist, you have rights. When you or a loved one has been in a cycling accident, the injuries, emotional trauma, and financial hardships can be devastating. Choosing a legal partner experienced in bicycle accidents that cares about you, stands by you, and fights for you can make all the difference as you recover and get back to your life.
We’re dedicated to helping cyclists across Ohio and Kentucky seek the justice and compensation they deserve.
Stressed, overwhelmed, and anxious, we reached out to Mr. Sakellariou for legal counsel. After one conversation with him, we were instantly calmed and reassured – this is a lawyer who not only possesses a commanding knowledge of the law, but who cares deeply about our situation and our family’s well-being.
They fought and had my back 100% when dealing with the driver's insurance company and mine. I feel he has a great deal of knowledge when dealing with these companies who just want to short change you.
From day one, Alan understood the medical literature that backed up my pain and symptoms and professionally and diligently explained that information to both insurance companies (the at-fault and my own). He settled my claim for close to six-figures. I could not have done it without him.
I know every case / circumstance will be different, but I got more than I was hoping for. I hope I won’t ever be in an accident again, but if I am, I wouldn’t hesitate to hire Alan.
Alan assisted me in a disputed liability case, where the insurance company was still fighting me. Alan stuck with me, believed my set of facts, and ultimately the insurance company finally accepted liability. Highly recommend Alan and his firm for personal injury cases!

The First Steps After the Accident
When you’ve been in an accident the first thing you should do is get the medical attention you need. Only after you and your loved ones have been seen by a doctor and are in stable condition should you consider the legal implications of your accident. Regardless of fault, whether told to you by a law enforcement officer, insurance adjuster, or anyone else, you should contact an attorney before you speak to the insurance companies to protect your rights.
Do you have a case?
Many drivers are unaware of all the rights that cyclists have on the road, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be held responsible for the accidents they may have caused.
Our most common cases include:
• Clipping from a car passing a cyclist too closely.
• Car dooring collisions or cyclists who have been “doored” by an unaware motorist opening their car door while passing by.
• Bike accidents at intersections when drivers may underestimate the speed of the cyclist crossing.
• Negligent or distracted drivers who were unaware that a cyclist was nearby.
• Rage accidents caused by aggressive or impatient drivers failing to share the road.
• Hit and run accidents where the driver has struck a cyclist and flees the scene.
The best way to know whether you have a case is to talk to an attorney. At Spivak and Sakellariou, personal injury and bike accident cases are our primary focus. We want to hear your story and help you determine if you should pursue your case.
This means we don’t get paid until you get paid.
We’re here to listen, understand your side of the story, and partner with you.
