As a bike mechanic Ive been referring people to Stuart for years and when it came time to use his services myself I found his services to be excellent. He even made house calls to get paperwork signed when I was injured!

Last year the passenger of an uber ride opened her door on me while I was biking home. Stuart, Zach, and Dillon ensured I received the care I needed and worked hard to win a settlement. They are extremely dedicated, deeply care about their clients, and are passionate about protecting the rights of the cycling community in Philadelphia. I highly recommend reaching out to them if you’re in an accident.

I genuinely hope that nobody ever has to research bicycle crash lawyers since it means you were in an accident, but there is no one better in Philly than these guys.

I was hit by a vehicle biking back from class in the fall of 2017. Stuart, Zach, and Dillon handled my case with a ton of care and attention. I genuinely felt like their only client every time I walked into their office since they were always so prepared for our meetings. They handled pretty much every step outside of getting the necessary information and documentation from me, and I never felt out of the loop with regard to the status of my case. These kinds of cases take a decent amount of time to resolve, so communication was hugely helpful as the process went from start to finish.

Most importantly, these folks get results, plain and simple.

Short version: If you, a family member, or a friend are in any sort of bike accident, call this firm immediately! They followed through on every promise, were very kind and clear along the way, and won my settlement ahead of schedule. My medical bills, bike repairs, lost wages and more were fully covered thanks to them. And I spent $0. (They take a fee when the settlement is won, but you essentially pay nothing).

Long version: Last September I was doored in the chest while pulling up to a stop sign. The driver admitted himself he did not look before opening the door. After a long night in the emergency room, I wasn’t sure what to do next. The driver agreed to pay the medical bills, but how could I be sure? He was ignoring my texts and calls (no surprise). Luckily the next day, a friend of mine recommended I reach out to Stuart Leon Bicycle Crash law. It was the best possible decision I could have made.

Stuart, Zach, and Dillon are all extremely passionate about their mission and supporting their clients. They don’t bask in the greed or corporatism that is synonymous with most law firms – you can tell immediately they’re in it to help people. On my first visit, they made me feel right at home and took their time to make sure all of my questions/needs were met. In the weeks following this meeting, Stuart would check in with me to make sure physical therapy was going well. What other lawyers put in that amount of care?

Your case may feel like it’s taking some time – stay hopeful, that’s just how these corporate insurance companies operate. Stuart claimed they’ve won all their cases, and from word on the street, it definitely seems true. Whenever I brought up my accident to friends, or friends of friends, if they knew Stuart and the firm, they had nothing but praise. I kid you not, every single story I heard about this firm: the client won big.

In the end, they said the settlement would probably take a year. Instead it took 10 months: my medical bills are fully covered, my bike repairs were fully covered, and the settlement I received made up for all the wages I lost while in recovery and then some. And to be clear, I spent $0 through this whole process.

Can’t recommend them enough! Knowing they’re working hard each day makes me more hopeful for this city.

After being hit by a car door and having no idea what to do about it, Zach, Stuart and Dillon came to my rescue. They helped me in so many ways from getting a police report filed to help with finding GOOD doctors and all the way down to getting my case wrapped up during a pandemic. I was included in every step of the process even if I couldn’t be there physically.

I worked most closely with Zach. He has the BEST attitude and made me feel very comfortable with everything. I have experienced working with a different law firm in the past and they never made me feel like I was a person. I was always just another number and spoke to different people all the time. NOT HERE! I was always able to speak with Zach and he was very prompt with communication.

When Covid-19 hit, I was certain I would have to wait for everything to reopen to finish my case. I was wrong!

They were able to conduct the meeting via zoom and close the case in great time. I was well prepared for every meeting I had because of Zach and Stuart. I couldn’t have felt more comfortable with something that can be so stressful.

Dillon was also super helpful with filing the police report and getting documents notarized during Covid. I was so confused about the process and he made it seamless for me!

If you are involved in a bicycle crash of any kind, CALL THESE GUYS! They’re awesome!!

So far working with them has been an absolutely easy process. Very clear on the processes, and pretty accommodating around anyone’s schedule.

Thienquan Pham

 

Every step of working with these guys has been great. They made the aftermath of my bike accident very easy to deal with and took care of every detail so I didn’t have to worry. I couldn’t recommend them more if you have been in a bike accident!!

In Dec of 2018 I was involved in a hit and run where I was hit multiple times by an aggressive driver. I called a friend who refereed me to Stuart and was seen immediately. He gave me a general rundown of things, was honest about the outcome and refereed me to MRCP for PT because I had sustained injuries. The staff at MRCP were really wonderful and my experience there was surprisingly better than PT experiences I have had in the past at Penn. They also, like Stuart, did not require payment unless my case was won which was really relieving.

Anyway, my case was rather complicated and I was doubtful that I would be reimbursed for anything, much less win a settlement. However, I’m glad that I contacted Stuart and his team. With their hard work and diligence they were able to not only get all medical bills paid, but also won me largest settlement available.

I highly recommend these guys. In addition to this civil case I was also dealing with the related criminal case and was unbelievably overwhelmed. I without a doubt couldn’t have dealt with it on my own and am forever grateful for their help.

I was involved in a hit and run two years ago. It’s really good to know that there is an option for hit and run victims, especially when you can’t track down the driver. Zach and the team took care of my case and took the burden off of me to find justice/compensation/whatever. They all work tirelessly behind the scenes to get your bills paid and to leave you better/as good as before. Reach out, even if you don’t think you have a case!

I was struck by a car back in December 2019 and in just three months the Bike Crash Law team won my case and had a settlement check in hand for me. It was a fantastic and quick turn around! Every member of the team is very kind and they are quick to respond to any concerns any of their clients have. If you’re a cyclist in Philly, these are the guys you want to represent you!

I worked with Stuart & Co. for about 5 years following a trolley track related bike crash and have nothing but wonderful things to say about them. They were always an absolute pleasure to work with–they’re really just lovely people–but also tireless about collecting evidence, and truly fierce negotiators on my behalf. Prompt, responsive, easy to get along with, and really make you feel comfortable around them (even if you’re young or know nothing about the legal system). They clearly really (actually) care about their clients, but also about Philadelphia in general, and their work is consequently incredibly inspiring. Plus, they won me a settlement!! Highly recommend their services!!!

Madeleine Salvatore

 

We are so fortunate to have Stuart and his team advocating on behalf of cyclists and safer road conditions here in Philly. I was given careful and thoughtful options every step of the way which was so appreciated. They have a great reputation, as I discover every time I wear their shirt and get positive comments, and it is deserved!

Amazing knowledge of the law and what is needed to resolve cases on behalf of their clients. No matter how minor you think your case is, definitely reach out to them for guidance. These folks are dedicated to cyclist safety. Bottom line.

‘Starscream’ is home; he is a beautiful machine. Also, first time I’ve ridden a bik in 2 years.

Thanks to Stuart Leon Bicycle Crash Law for helping me get back on my feet and back on the road.

Whitlock Stephanie

 

After being a victim of a driver on a total power trip over “his road” and by being let down by the local authorities, I decided to gain the services and Stuart Leon and his staff. This was my first time having to deal with getting justice where I was ignored by state police.

Stuart Leon and his staff showed me the outmost respect and understanding of my grievance and fought for me in a professional and most importantly with integrity.

If you truly need a bicycle crash firm, then there is no better firm to start than with Stuart Leon. I am forever grateful for his guidance, patience and total support throughout the whole case process.

Juan Carlos Olaya

 

Stuart and his staff have been so helpful and make this overwhelming process easy. I appreciate he met me at my crash sight to see for himself, in person, the treacherous road conditions. Would recommend him to every cyclist out there in need.

Bottom line: Hiring this firm is the best decision you could possibly make.

I love to figure things out on my own. After my accident, I spent countless hours reading about how to deal with the police, insurance companies, medical providers, and the driver who hit me. After days of research, I was still completely confused by the process and scared to make a wrong move. Worst of all, I had added tremendous stress to the significant physical and mental trauma of the accident.

I called my bike shop for advice, and they offered just one suggestion without any hesitation – call Stuart Leon. I made that call, and can definitively say, in every respect, it was the best thing I could have done.

The entire team worked quickly to change what felt like an impossible mess into a clear and organized path towards a positive outcome. They dealt with every issue: inaccurate police reporting, medical bills, an unresponsive driver, and the replacement of my bicycle.

I was always aware of what was going on with my case, but never felt burdened by it. I focused on mental and physical recovery – Stuart Leon handled everything else.

Stuart, Zach and Dillon are highly skilled and genuinely compassionate people. They are true advocates for cycling safety and positive change in our community. I’m grateful for their representation, and would recommend them to anyone.

I am forever grateful for the hard work Stuart, Zach and Dillon put into my case. Simply put, they are the best there is at what they do and completely deserve their excellent reputation in the cycling community.

I was doored while biking in Center City. One of the worst nights of my life. I originally hired another rather well known attorney in Philadelphia who didn’t specialize in bike accident cases. Shortly after that, my attorney informed me his schedule was jam packed and rather than delay my case, he wanted to refer me to the law firm best equipped to handle cases like mine. That firm was Stuart Leon and after just one meeting in their office, I was fully confident it was the right decision. Zach took the lead in my case and hit the ground running. He was highly professional and communicative throughout the entire process and fought to get me everything I deserved.

Cases like these aren’t resolved overnight, which is why it’s so important to find an attorney with a proven track record. Stuart and Zach have handled enough of these cases to know exactly what they are doing and their strategies work.

They work EXCLUSIVELY on bicycle accident cases. I am only a commuter cyclist (not an avid cyclist or courier) and my accident only involved falling off my bike due to a road defect. I assumed my accident didn’t qualified as a case, but was encouraged to still contact Stuart and Zach. Thank god I did! They know Philadelphia bicycle law better than anyone else and clearly informed me of my rights. I paid them nothing as they worked on my case, which took upward of a year. They only take a fee once the settlement is won (which mine was 🎉). They are transparent, communicative, and compassionate. They also actively advocate for the cyclist community – pushing for better and safer streets to ride on. If that doesn’t sell you, here’s my personal story…

I turned to them after my own bicycle accident. While riding home from work one late night, I hit a defect in the road causing me to fall from my bike and shatter my front tooth. My tooth was so badly damaged that it had to be pulled and replaced via implantology. Due to medical complications, I ended up going through two full rounds of implantology (bone grafting, implant placement, gum grafting, tooth-loading). Not only did Stuart and Zach continually keep me up to date with my case, they made sure to checked-in on my health and well-being. They personally cared about me. The settlement they won for me covered BOTH rounds of my medical bills, lost wages, and more.

I was gonna write a cute little story/review recounting my experiences, but I don’t want to waste your time. Instead here is the simple version: these people are great. They give a (S Word). They know the law better than anyone. And, they get results.

I had no idea of my rights, the process, the paperwork, or how to handle any claims I may have had after I was Hit and Run by a motorist in Philadelphia. Stuart, Zach, and Dillon were a godsend. Without them I would never have known what means of recourse were available. Had I managed to figure them out on my own, I am positive I still would have ended up bearing most of the financial burdens myself.

Stuart and Co. were upfront and clear about my options. They were communicative throughout the whole process. They were concerned and caring about my health and state of mind. They were professional, direct, and even went out of their way for me several times throughout the process. In the end, they knocked it out of the park. My case settled 50% faster than expected, and I received the maximum settlement from the insurance company, ensuring my current and future medical needs would be covered.

I expected this whole process to be awful. It wasn’t. I wasn’t out of pocket for a lawyer. I wasn’t spending my time on the phone with police and insurance adjusters. I wasn’t lost inside a confusing legal system. I was walked through everything and all the hard parts were all handled by the firm. When it was all over, what I was worried would be a nightmare, wasn’t.

I really hope you never get hit by a car. But, if you do, seriously, call these guys. (Call an ambulance first though. Especially in a Hit and Run. The record is apparently important to have.)

Zach, Stuart, and Leon helped me recoup medical expenses for a bike crash on the trolley tracks. These guys are professional and effective advocates for cyclists in the Philadelphia area and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend.

Jessica Plocher

 

Zach and the rest of the team made the process of getting my medical bills covered from my bike accident simple. Would recommend.

James Goerke

 

Zach took good care of me after my accident. He didn’t just handle my lawsuit but was able to help me navigate the insurance companies, which was good because my injury made it difficult for me to deal with them on my own.

Samuel Halterman

 

Amazing and knowledgeable firm, extremely satisfied!!!

Deborah Maurer

 

Stuart and staff are great. Cycling advocacy at it’s best!

Mark Mumbauer

 

You are absolutely in the best hands with this firm. My life was turned upside down after I was hit by car and out of work for months with a broken wrist. Stuart and Company helped me navigate my options and got me the results I needed and then some. Promptly, too.
