Bryan-College Station Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Bicycling has become increasingly popular in Texas, with more people using bikes for commuting, exercise, and leisure. Many of our major cities have vastly increased the availability of bike lanes, allowing more Texans to enjoy this form of transportation and sport. Unfortunately, this has also led to an increase in bicycle accidents.
Bicyclists, like pedestrians and motorcyclists, have a much higher risk of injury and death while traveling the lanes and roads of our communities. If you are a bicyclist, you have little physical protection if you are struck by a vehicle. Between the impact of the collision and being thrown from your bike against the pavement or nearby objects, injuries can become severe and even catastrophic.
When recovering from such an accident, taking on the legal burden of navigating your bicycle accident claim is likely far from your mind. At Paradowski Law, we can take on all aspects of the claim for you, giving you the time and attention you need to concentrate on recovering your health. Furthermore, our skilled personal injury attorney can also put you in the strongest position possible to secure fair and just compensation for your damages.
Why Should You Hire Paradowski Law?
We believe it is essential to have representation in accident claims. You will likely be dealing with an insurance company whose priority is to pay out as little (or nothing) as possible on liability claims. These companies typically will work in their own best interests, not yours, and will often engage in manipulative tactics, such as pressuring you into taking a settlement that is far below what your claim is worth.
As an average person without legal knowledge, you may not understand that the responsibility and financial liability for your injuries may involve more than one person. You likely do not have the knowledge surrounding what your claim is truly worth. Furthermore, insurers and their policyholders may try to pin the blame for the accident on you, destroying or limiting your right to compensation.
Our firm understands what you are up against because we have been building and negotiating personal injury cases for more than 30 years. We know how to deal with insurers and how to stand up for our clients in pursuing the compensation you need and deserve.
Causes of Bicycle Accidents in Texas
Bicycle accidents can occur in many ways. However, they are usually based on human error. This typically involves negligence on the part of drivers, who fail to exercise proper care which puts others on the roads at risk.
Examples of driver negligence and error can include:
Other causes of bicycle accidents can include defective parts in motor vehicles, bicycles, and safety equipment. When these components malfunction, the manufacturers of these products may be held liable. Additionally, where road maintenance or conditions are unsafe and thus contribute to bicycle accidents, the government agencies responsible may also be liable. Unsafe road conditions can range from debris on the roadway to missing or obstructed signage, and more.
