Ohio Bike Laws
Cyclists face unique challenges while sharing the roadway with motorists. Ohio law requires cyclists to ride as far to the right side of the roadway as practicable. This flexible standard is meant to let motorist pass cyclist on the left while allowing cyclists to move further into the roadway to avoid threats like car doors and potholes on the right. The flexibility of the “practicable” standard can create confusion and misunderstanding, which can lead to assertions by insurers and defense attorneys that the cyclists was at fault in causing the collision. Insurers and defense attorneys may also seek to diminish driver responsibility by blaming head and other injuries on the cyclist’s lack of protective gear and proper lighting.
These issues and the serious nature of injuries often sustained by cyclists in collisions add an extra level of complexity to bicycle injury cases. An experienced bicycle accident attorney will guide you through your injury case and work to explain the facts, law and circumstances of your bicycle accident to insurers, defense attorneys and jurors. Simply put, an experienced attorney will help to ensure that you receive the best outcome for your bicycle injury case.
Why Insurance Companies Are Not on Your Side
Our attorneys have the knowledge and grit necessary to effectively negotiate with insurers. It is not the job of insurance companies to give you a fair deal. They will do their best to pay as little as possible and to undermine your claim. Insurance adjusters know that the attorneys at Rourke & Blumenthal passionately pursue our client’s cases during negotiations and, if necessary, in litigation. This allows us to achieve great results for our clients.

Wonderful firm! We have worked with other attorneys in the past and Mike and Tim blew us away. If you have a brain injury in the State of Ohio, you NEED attorneys who are experienced in TBI cases, not just motor vehicle accidents or other personal injury matters. It makes a huge difference having an attorney who understands the medical, emotional, and financial issues a family suffers after a TBI. They are professional, compassionate, and great communicators. I would recommend this office to anyone.- Suzanne
Attorney Jon Stoudt is the best lawyer I've ever worked with. He did everything he could to help me. From the start, Jon was very responsive and always explained everything in terms I could easily understand. Jon's staff was also kind and responsive. I highly recommend Jon and would use him again in the future. Several months after being done with my case, another lawyer, handling a different part of the case, commented on how well Jon handled my civil suit.- Jillian
From the very beginning and to the very end of a long process, Mr. Rourke and his team were extremely compassionate, knowledgeable and friendly. I found them to be honest and easy to communicate with, day or night, weekday or weekend. Mr. Rourke was always professional but at the same time made you feel important and took as much time that was needed to explain the many steps in this process. Everyone of his team were very respectful and caring of everyone in my family involved in our case. I will have an admiration for Mr. Rourke and his team for the remainder of my life.- Kelly
Jonathan Stoudt gave us excellent counsel during our time with him.- Cathy
Mr Timothy Mahler represented me after a personal injury auto accident. He was professional, knowledgeable, empathetic and experienced. I always felt that he had my best interests as the top priority. I was relieved from the intricate and time-consuming tasks related to the accident, free to focus on healing and recovery. He managed the complicated insurance and settlement to the best outcome. His team always treated me with respect. I would highly recommend Mr Mahler and his team. Thank you.- Cathy B.
I suffered physical injuries and a concussion from an auto accident in December of 2020. The team, from receptionist to attorneys, were nothing less than stellar, professional, kind, and hard working. The accident and aftermath were extremely stressful; but the Rourkes, Michael Senior and Michael Junior, helped me navigate the process while I focused on healing. For me, recovery from the accident was the most important part of the process. While I worked on recovering, Rourke and Blumenthal worked on negotiating a fantastic settlement for me. I will forever be grateful for their help!- Maggie S.
