A Lebanon law firm will give away kids’ bike helmets at an April event promoting bike safety and healthy lifestyles.

Parr Richey Obremskey Frandsen & Patterson will present the third annual “PedalPalooza” as part of the nationwide YMCA Healthy Kids Day on April 27 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Witham Family YMCA in Lebanon. The free event will be open to the public.

To promote bike safety, members of Parr Richey’s staff will pass out 200 free children’s bicycle helmets and bike reflectors, and will give away one boy’s bicycle and one girl’s bicycle at their “PedalPalooza” booth.

“We’re thrilled that PedalPalooza has become an annual event. It was a huge success last year and we are expecting even bigger crowds this time around,” Paul Kruse, partner at Parr Richey and past president of Witham Family YMCA board of directors, said in a news release. “It’s critical that every child wear a bike helmet. This is our way to promote bike safety awareness and have fun at the same time.”

Bicycle safety is an area of concern for Parr Richey as over half a million bicyclists visit emergency rooms across the country with bicycling injuries every year, and over 1,000 bicyclists are killed annually. Experts say head injuries are the leading cause of death and the biggest factor in permanent injuries resulting from bicycling, and that wearing a helmet is the most effective precaution to reduce the likelihood of head injuries and deaths from bike crashes.  

Parr Richey, a personal injury firm, has offices in Lebanon and Indianapolis.

  1. Unfortunately, the court doesn't understand the difference between ebidta and adjusted ebidta as they clearly got the ruling wrong based on their misunderstanding

  2. A common refrain in the comments on this website comes from people who cannot locate attorneys willing put justice over retainers. At the same time the judiciary threatens to make pro bono work mandatory, seemingly noting the same concern. But what happens to attorneys who have the chumptzah to threatened the legal status quo in Indiana? Ask Gary Welch, ask Paul Ogden, ask me. Speak truth to power, suffer horrendously accordingly. No wonder Hoosier attorneys who want to keep in good graces merely chase the dollars ... the powers that be have no concerns as to those who are ever for sale to the highest bidder ... for those even willing to compromise for $$$ never allow either justice or constitutionality to cause them to stand up to injustice or unconstitutionality. And the bad apples in the Hoosier barrel, like this one, just keep rotting.

  3. I am one of Steele's victims and was taken for $6,000. I want my money back due to him doing nothing for me. I filed for divorce after a 16 year marriage and lost everything. My kids, my home, cars, money, pension. Every attorney I have talked to is not willing to help me. What can I do? I was told i can file a civil suit but you have to have all of Steelers info that I don't have. Of someone can please help me or tell me what info I need would be great.

  4. It would appear that news breaking on Drudge from the Hoosier state (link below) ties back to this Hoosier story from the beginning of the recent police disrespect period .... MCBA president Cassandra Bentley McNair issued the statement on behalf of the association Dec. 1. The association said it was “saddened and disappointed” by the decision not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for shooting Michael Brown. “The MCBA does not believe this was a just outcome to this process, and is disheartened that the system we as lawyers are intended to uphold failed the African-American community in such a way,” the association stated. “This situation is not just about the death of Michael Brown, but the thousands of other African-Americans who are disproportionately targeted and killed by police officers.” http://www.thestarpress.com/story/news/local/2016/07/18/hate-cops-sign-prompts-controversy/87242664/

  5. What form or who do I talk to about a d felony which I hear is classified as a 6 now? Who do I talk to. About to get my degree and I need this to go away it's been over 7 years if that helps.
