Proven Results

“Happily cycling for over 30 years, I never thought I would get hit by a car, but it happened. After the hospital stay and recovering slowly at home, I just didn’t want to deal with starting any legal aspect of the situation. However, the Knabe Law Firm was highly recommended by a trusted fellow cyclist, so I called Ken – I’m so glad I did.

Ken Knabe is very smart, thorough, and tenacious in pursuing a fair and just result. His extensive experience and knowledge of the law – particularly in regards to cyclists’ rights and driving laws, means that he knows exactly what to investigate and what information to gather. His case document preparation is exceptional. My case was hard, but in all of our conversations and meetings, I always left feeling that he was on top of everything, and this was always validated. The Knabe Law Firm is second to none in representing cyclists in bike/car accidents. I give Ken Knabe and his team the highest recommendation. If you’re a cyclist involved in a bike/car accident, don’t wait – call Ken Knabe.”

“I was seriously injured while on my bike by an inattentive driver. I called the Knabe Law Firm due to the work Ken does with local advocacy groups and his involvement in the cycling community. Ken and his staff worked diligently on my case. They handled everything with a difficult insurance company and hospital system. I would highly recommend their services.”

“Knabe Law Firm helped us when my husband was hit riding his bike by a hit and run motorist. I didn’t even think my auto insurance would cover him (as a non-driver) but thanks to Ken we were able to receive a settlement! The law firm is also a major supporter of Bike Cleveland, working to prevent crashes like these in the future. Thank you!”

“I highly recommend Ken. I was a victim of a hit and run on my bicycle and was referred to Ken by my neighbors. He called me back right away and set up an in person meeting. He explained everything to me very clearly and I felt comfortable with him handling my case. He made sure I saw the correct doctors and guided me through everything. He kept me informed during the long process and worked to get me a good settlement. If you are involved in a bicycle accident, I can’t recommend Ken highly enough.”
