Bicycle and Pedestrian Accident Lawyer in Houston
Helping Get Compensation for Injuries from Pedestrian and Bicycle Collisions
Walking and riding a bicycle are popular activities for both transportation and recreation. While walking or riding a bicycle is excellent for health and also for the environment, accidents caused by reckless or negligent drivers occur all too often. Unfortunately, victims of these accidents face severe, or even life-threatening injuries. Our bicycle and pedestrian accident attorneys will help you get the compensation you deserve if you or a loved one was struck by a vehicle while walking or riding a bicycle.
Do You Need a Bicycle or Pedestrian Accident Attorney?
After being struck by a vehicle while walking or riding a bicycle, you are facing a long recovery and possibly chronic pain or disability, both of which leave you unable to work and facing overwhelming medical bills. Or, your loved one sustained fatal injuries, and your family not only lost the love and companionship, but you may also have lost income or are paying for funeral and burial expenses.
Regardless, when someone else is at fault for the pain and suffering you are facing, they should be held accountable.
Instead, insurance companies will try to avoid paying a settlement and will either offer significantly less than you are owed or worse, they will paint the accident as your fault or say your injuries weren’t severe.
Trying to navigate the legal system alone is almost impossible. You need an attorney on your side who will investigate the accident, work with experts, determine how much the case is worth, and fight on your behalf. These are key to achieving the favorable outcome and fair settlement you deserve.
Common Causes of Collisions
- Failing to follow traffic laws, including failure to yield to pedestrians or cyclists;
- Reckless driving, including speeding or tailgating;
- Driving while intoxicated;
- Distracted driving, such as using a cell phone;
Common Injuries Caused by Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents
Because pedestrians and cyclists don’t have the protection a vehicle offers, when a collision occurs, serious injuries often result, including:
- Traumatic brain injury, skull fractures, and concussions;
- Spinal cord injuries;
- Broken bones;
- Damage to internal organs and bleeding;
