Austin Bicycle Accidents Lawyer
Recovering Millions in Damages for Victims of Bicycle Accident Personal Injuries in Texas
Bicycles are vulnerable vehicles on the road. Drivers are expected to exercise caution when they see cyclists to make sure they do not injure them. Unfortunately, bicycle accidents still happen, often leaving cyclists with severe injuries that require extensive treatment.
At the Law Offices of Jay Doyle, P.C., we help those who have been injured by negligent drivers to get the recovery funds they need. Bicycles are every bit as deserving of caution as any other vehicle, so we fight to ensure these drivers are held accountable for the harm they cause.
Who Can Be Held Accountable After an Accident?
While most serious bicycle accidents are caused by a collision with a vehicle, not all bicycle accident cases involve a motor vehicle.
- Bicycle Manufacturers or Repair Shops - If your accident was caused by a defective bike or a negligent repair you may be able to pursue damages from the manufacturer or repair shop.
- Government Roads - It is even possible to pursue compensation if your accident was due to a poorly maintained or dangerous road. Our government is responsible for ensuring we have access to safe roads and walk ways and repairing them if their degradation poises danger to those that use them. If they fail to do so they can be held accountable for an accident that happens as a result.
- Private Property Owners - If an accident happens due to a danger on private property, such as construction or tree trimming, you can pursue a premises liability claim.
Traffic Laws in Texas
Drivers need to be vigilant about operating their vehicles safely, as being hit by a car can cause serious injuries. Cyclists are expected to obey some basic safety laws as well, such as always riding with traffic, obeying traffic signals, and wearing visible clothing at night. Even with safe riding practices, however, there are drivers who don’t pay attention, or worse, think cyclists shouldn’t be on the road.
If you were struck by one of these motorists, you may be entitled to compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages during your treatments
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
- Lost earning potential
You deserve to have the time, comfort, and finances necessary to get better. Let our Austin bicycle accident injury lawyer handle the work of making sure your treatments are covered.
Building a Strong Case for Your Bicycle Accident Claim
Once you are injured in an accident, the first thing you need to do is get treated for your injuries. This means a claim will be opened with the driver’s insurance company. It is important that you work with a competent, experienced lawyer who knows how to deal with insurance carriers.
You should also:
- Visit a doctor you trust
- Detail all your injuries and have your physician provide you with documentation
- Gather any witness statements and police reports
