I was riding my bike and was hit from behind by a driver who was texting! I hired bike attorney, Ken Knabe, who came highly recommended. He came to my house and photographed and videoed my bicycle damage and injuries which proved very valuable when it came time to settle. He sent me to a professional photographer to clearly identify my wounds and the resultant scarring. He kept in contact with me; and he and his team put together a great settlement package which helped resolve my claims without a lawsuit. I was very happy with the settlement and his aggressive approach to unsafe drivers who are texting and injuring us cyclists. I highly recommended him.
