Attorney Brad L. Anderson JD
Personal Injury Attorney Brad Anderson has been cycling “since the late nineties, and I’m involved in both road and mountain biking.” He currently rides a Merlin road bike and a Specialized Stumpjumper mountain bike. Says Brad, “I enjoy the physical challenge of cycling and the reward of beautiful scenery if mountain biking or the accomplishment of a specific distance or climb if road biking. Cycling also offers me a chance to recharge for the next day or week.”
Brad finds great satisfaction in helping injured cyclists, “I especially enjoy working on cycling cases for two reasons. First, the opportunity to connect with clients over a shared interest. Second and most gratifying, the opportunity to educate people with respect to the rules for cyclists and the drivers we share the road with. More often than not, I feel that the first impression is that the cyclist was in the wrong and that is not always the case. Helping cyclist gives me the opportunity to help us all understand how to share the road, even if that is one case at a time.”
Brad Anderson practices law in Utah. He represents cyclists and other clients who have personal injuries occurring from car accidents, commercial/large truck accidents, and public transportation accidents. He also handles accidents involving pedestrians and motorcyclists. Brad also resolves wrongful death cases.
