Texas Bicycle & Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

Representing Bicyclists and Pedestrians Hit by Motorists

Texas has been recognized for some of the best and worst bicycling conditions in the U.S. In 2001, Bicycling magazine rated Austin, Texas, second on its list of the Top 10 bicycling cities in North America. More recently, Dallas was listed among the worst cities for cycling. In fact, the League of American Bicyclists has ranked Texas 36th among the 50 states for bike friendliness.

Texas Roadway Hazards for Bicyclists and Pedestrians

Reckless and careless drivers, unsafe road conditions, and unfriendly legislative conditions — bike safety bill SB 488 was recently vetoed by the governor — result in hundreds of unnecessary bicycle accident injuries and deaths every year. Bicyclists and their families are left suffering the consequences of broken bones, serious head injuries and changed lives.

Pedestrians face similar challenges from inattentive drivers, particularly in crosswalks when a driver turning right — but looking left — runs into a pedestrian or a driver talking on a cellphone hits a child.

The driver of a car or truck does not have the right of way just because he or she has a motor vehicle. What drivers do have is a responsibility to drive with care and to be aware of others with whom they share the road.

Meeting the Challenges of Bike Accident Cases

Since 1951, our bicycle accident attorneys have been pursuing justice for adult and child victims of bike and pedestrian accidents. In addition to an experienced team of litigators, our staff includes medical professionals who assist us in understanding and presenting complex medical information to juries and insurance companies. When injuries are serious, the effects can last a lifetime. It’s important to understand the full impact to ensure you receive full and fair compensation.

We are committed to thoroughly investigating the cause of bike and pedestrian accidents, not simply relying on police reports. It’s unfortunate, but police do not always follow up, even in serious injury cases. They assume that the bicyclist was at fault rather than the speeding motorist or fail to interview witnesses to follow through on hit-and-run cases. Just because a driver was not charged with a crime does not mean the driver was in the right. We do the legwork to ensure our client’s case is solid.
