An Attorney Who Puts Victims Of Bike And Pedestrian Accidents First

You wear your helmet and perhaps knee and elbow pads, to protect yourself when you are on your bicycle. When you are walking, you look both ways, even when the sign indicates it is safe, before crossing in the crosswalk. Even these precautions may not protect you if a driver of a motor vehicle does not see you.

Attorney Jay Doyle of Austin understands the trauma many bicyclists and pedestrians go through when they have been hit by a car or truck. Because you are virtually unprotected when you walk or bike, the impact of a motor vehicle can result in injuries that can alter the course of your life. Our law firm has witnessed the pain and devastation such injuries can bring to victims and their families. We are ready to put our decades of experience to work representing you in the legal issues you are facing.

Drivers Should Be Aware Of Their Surroundings

You deserve the same courtesy as those behind the wheel of a vehicle. A common claim of drivers is that they did not see the person walking or on a bicycle before the collision. The driver may have been speeding, participating in distracting behaviors while driving, or simply not in the habit of looking out for bicycles and pedestrians, including:

  • Backing out of driveways without checking
  • Driving on the shoulder or in the bike lane
  • Changing lanes without checking blind spots for smaller vehicles
  • Ignoring stop signs
  • Failing to yield for pedestrians in the crosswalk
  • Opening car doors without looking
  • Speeding in residential neighborhoods, parking lots and other areas where pedestrians traffic is common

The injuries you may suffer in such an accident can be disabling, including internal injuries, neck and back fractures, spinal cord injuries and brain trauma. You and your family may be dealing with the grief of losing a loved one who was struck by a vehicle. The Law Offices of Jay Doyle, P.C., has proudly stood beside accident victims and their families since 1979, and we have the resources to aggressively advocate for your rights. Jay Doyle also assists those injured by hit-and-run and uninsured drivers.
