Attorney Profile

Stacie Bain


Many attorneys handle a broad range of personal injury cases. I founded Rainier Bike Law as an independent attorney because I wanted to focus on helping injured cyclists, motorcyclists and scooter riders. Since 2007, I've been representing bikers who have sustained serious injuries like broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, fractured teeth and facial scarring. As a former competitive athlete in both mountain bike racing and gymnastics, I'm uniquely qualified to represent injured athletes, particularly cyclists, who want nothing more than to get back to being active.

In addition to being a dedicated, life-long athlete, I'm a tenacious advocate. I have tried and arbitrated cases in King County Superior Court and have appeared in federal district court on behalf of the US Attorney's Office. During law school, I clerked for the Honorable Harry J. McCarthy in King County Superior Court. Since I've been representing injured cyclists, the best part of my job is helping my clients get their day in court.

When taking time off from my practice, I enjoy mountain biking, snowboarding, hiking, whitewater kayaking and rock climbing. I also guide commercial whitewater rafting trips on the Wenatchee, Nooksack and Tieton rivers during the summer.

Do I Need A Lawyer?


You can call or email me for a free consultation with no strings attached. You can ask me about your mounting medical bills, time lost from work, insurance company hassles, loss of transportation, etc. I will help you determine if you would benefit from hiring a lawyer or if you should handle your personal injury claim on your own. You not only have your injuries to think about, you also have your legal rights to consider and I can help demystify the legal process for you.

Do I Have A Case?

Bicyclists are often blamed for causing collisions even when they are obeying the rules of the road. Learn about what factors are important in evaluating fault for your bicycle accident case in Washington. Whether you were cut off, doored, run off the road or rear-ended, I can discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your case with you. If you don't have a case, or if you can handle it on your own, I can help you figure that out, too.

What's My Case Worth?

There are a number of factors that the insurance companies look at in evaluating your case: your injuries, whether you were hospitalized, if you need (or will need) surgery, if there are permanent injuries or scarring, if you missed work, who was at fault and insurance coverage details. Hiring an attorney who rides will help maximize your recovery for medical bills, new equipment, lost income and pain and suffering.

How Much Does It Cost?

I work on a contingency fee basis. This means my fee comes from the money I recover for you. You are not "charged" every time you want to call or email your attorney and I encourage frequent contact so I can better represent you. Having me on your side from the beginning of your case lets you focus on recovering from your injuries, knowing that every aspect of your bike accident is being handled by a professional, knowledgeable, compassionate attorney who has your best interest in mind.
