Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel P.C. are dedicated to helping victims of bicycle and pedestrian accidents. They have extensive experience, including representing bicyclists who have been injured in “clipping,” and “dooring,” accidents, as well as bikers who have been run off the road by negligent drivers, or injured when a motorist made a negligent lane change.

We are proud to have a Legal Resource Member with such a well-respected and trusted reputation. The active partners of CSCS, Ira Sherman, Joseph Cammarata, and Allan M.

Bicycle crashes involving an automobile are often some of the most deadly crashes on our roadways. In 2005, the Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute found that 92% of bicyclist fatalities were caused by a collision with a motor vehicle. When a crash is not fatal, common injuries that bicyclist may experience include traumatic brain injuries (TBI), crush injuries, facial injuries, neck injuries, paralysis, amputation, and road rash. While many of these injuries can have lifelong debilitating effects, TBI research and the understanding of a TBI’s long-term effects is a quickly evolving area. CSCS Partners Joseph Cammarata and Ira Sherman are the founders and President, and Vice President, respectively, of the Brain Injury Association of Washington, D.C., which is committed to improving the lives of those affected by TBIs. Ira Sherman is also on the Board of Directors of the Brain Injury Association of Washington, D.C. Based on this firm’s extensive experience, you can trust them to fight for your rights through every step of your case. CSCS has a 5 Star ranking on Google and they are proud to have represented many satisfied bicyclist clients. You can read all of their 5 Star reviews here and check out numerous client testimonials here.
