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. by the time anybody gets to such files they will probably have been totally vacuumed anyways. they're pros at this at universities. anything to protect their incomes. Still, a laudable attempt. Let's go for throat though: how about the idea of unionizing football college football players so they can get a fair shake for their work? then if one of the players is a pain in the neck cut them loose instead of protecting them. if that kills the big programs, great, what do they have to do with learning anyways? nada. just another way for universities to rake in the billions even as they skate from paying taxes with their bogus "nonprofit" status.

  2. Um the affidavit from the lawyer is admissible, competent evidence of reasonableness itself. And anybody who had done law work in small claims court would not have blinked at that modest fee. Where do judges come up with this stuff? Somebody is showing a lack of experience and it wasn't the lawyers

  3. My children were taken away a year ago due to drugs, and u struggled to get things on track, and now that I have been passing drug screens for almost 6 months now and not missing visits they have already filed to take my rights away. I need help.....I can't loose my babies. Plz feel free to call if u can help. Sarah at 765-865-7589

  4. Females now rule over every appellate court in Indiana, and from the federal southern district, as well as at the head of many judicial agencies. Give me a break, ladies! Can we men organize guy-only clubs to tell our sob stories about being too sexy for our shirts and not being picked for appellate court openings? Nope, that would be sexist! Ah modernity, such a ball of confusion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmRsWdK0PRI

  5. LOL thanks Jennifer, thanks to me for reading, but not reading closely enough! I thought about it after posting and realized such is just what was reported. My bad. NOW ... how about reporting who the attorneys were raking in the Purdue alum dollars?
