When you or a loved one are injured in a bicycle crash, you must take action to protect your rights under the law. So many cyclists fail to act, instead accepting minimal offers of compensation from insurance companies. These insufficient settlement offers often are not even enough to cover basic medical bills. They can leave cyclists in a world of hurt, both physically and financially. That is why it pays to contact the team at the Law Firm of Kass & Moses after an Idaho bicycle crash.
The experienced team of attorneys at the Law Firm of Kass & Moses have over 50 years combined experience in the industry, representing hurt cyclists. They have committed their practice to representing cyclists because they ride, too, and want to give back to the community. This commitment extends beyond our law practice.

No one expects to be struck by a motorist or involved in a dooring crash. But these accidents happen every day. In a best case scenario, you are left with a few scrapes and bruises and are no worse for the wear. But far too often, injuries are significant and, in the worst cases, these crashes prove fatal. With just a helmet for protection, bicyclists are especially vulnerable to injuries. Bodily injuries like fractures, spinal column injuries, and soft tissue damage require time and medical attention to heal. Head injuries can result in long-term damage and disabilities.
When you are hurt following a bike crash, we recommend that you seek medical attention at the emergency room right away. Emergency room physicians are trained to assess for both head and bodily injuries. Far too often, cyclists leave the scene of the crash injured, but fail to seek medical attention. They choose to “tough it out” for a few days and only visit the doctor when it becomes clear that the damage will not heal on its own. This behavior can lead the insurance company to assume that your injuries are minor and not worthy of fair compensation. In addition, sometimes injuries become complicated due to the lapse of time. You owe it to your health and well-being to put your medical care first. If you have been hurt in an Idaho bicycle crash, contact the team at the Law Office of Kass & Moses today to learn more about how we can help you get fair compensation under the law.
