Pedestrian And Bicycle Accidents

According to statistics gathered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were 421 pedestrian fatalities in Texas in 2011. All drivers must respect the rights of pedestrians and bicyclists. Unfortunately, however, those rights are often overlooked due to distracted driving and other driver negligence.

After you have sought proper medical attention, contact our firm to discuss your case in a free initial consultation. We will explain your rights and options for pursuing the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.

Protecting Your Right To Maximum Compensation

Bicyclists as well as walkers and runners are considered "pedestrians" under the law. Unlike other motor vehicle accidents, pedestrian accidents are more likely to result in serious injury or catastrophic injury due to the large size and heavy weight of the vehicle. Furthermore, the pedestrian or bicyclist doesn't have the protection of a vehicle and is therefore more susceptible to injury in a collision.

Our firm protects the victims of bicycle and pedestrian accidents that occurred in crosswalks, bike lanes, parking lots and other roadways. We represent individuals who have suffered:

  • Multiple fractures/broken bones
  • Soft-tissue injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Road rash and skin abrasions
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Head injuries and traumatic brain injuries
  • Other serious injuries

Was Your Accident Caused By Distracted Driving?

In today's modern age, distracted driving, such as texting while driving or using a cellphone behind the wheel, is a common cause of pedestrian and bicycle accidents. Our attorney will thoroughly investigate the case, including examining cellphone records, if necessary. As your advocate, we will take on the burden of dealing with the insurance company. We are always prepared to defend your rights in court should a trial become necessary.
