Bicycle Accidents

Bicyclists usually wear only a light-weight helmet for protection from falling down; they’re not surrounded by metal like the occupant of a car is.  That is why bicycling accidents can be so tragic and oftentimes devastating.  A bicyclist who collides with a car or truck can receive serious injuries that require months if not years to recover from. In many cases if not most, permanent injuries occur.

Drivers distracted by many things inside the car such as talking on a cell phone or texting while driving oftentimes veer into bicyclists.  Drivers who injure bicyclists due to any negligent act should be held accountable for the injuries they inflict and for their careless, negligent and reckless behavior.

If you or a loved one has been injured in any type of vehicular accident in Dallas or the surrounding areas, while on a bicycle you should hire an experienced and qualified personal injury lawyer to help you recover what is due to you.

We have helped many victims recover compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, ambulance, medical and hospital bills, and other accident related expenses.

Bike accidents often result in the following types of devastating injuries:

  • Amputation from crushing injuries
  • Broken hips, femurs, arms and other bones
  • Brain injuries
  • Contusions
  • Dismemberment or amputation
  • Fractured Skulls
  • Head trauma
  • Internal organ damage
  • Lacerations and major bruising
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Facial injuries or trauma

Victims injured in bicycling accidents should not give recorded statements to insurance adjusters without first hiring a Dallas or North Texas County personal injury law firm such as The Law Offices of Adrian Crane.

Insurance companies, through their adjusters, relish the thought of settling a bodily injury claim with an injured person before they have consulted with an attorney, and the law allows them to.

Without an attorney to guide them, many injured bicyclists will settle their claim before even getting medical care, often times for far, far less than they deserve and could get with competent representation.

You owe it to yourself and your family to get proper medical care and legal representation. Adrian Crane and Associates, an Austin and Travis County personal injury law firm works strictly on a contingent fee basis which means you pay nothing up front; we collect our lawyer’s fees, court costs (if any) and expenses out of any settlement we may be able to collect on your behalf.

Contact us to discuss your claim and your options; we’ll help you get justice!  Remember, you do not have to suffer financially due to the carelessness, recklessness or negligence of another person.

The Law Offices of Adrian Crane has represented injured Texans all over the state since 1991.  Call or reach us through this website’s case evaluation and contact form for a no-obligation consultation to discuss your personal injury claim.
