The Texas Crash Records Information System (CRIS) provides statistics involving bicycle accidents. CRIS reported:
Bicycle accidents, similar to pedestrian accidents, are often underreported. This can be because police are not called, or because they do not show up. If a cyclist rides in a private vehicle to a hospital, the accident may not be accurately logged by law enforcement as a cycling accident.
The Texas Transportation Code establishes bicyclists' duties and rights while operating bicycles on roads or dedicated bicycle paths. One of the most significant laws is that cyclists have the rights and duties of other vehicle operators - they must obey traffic signals (stop signs and traffic signals).
Other laws pertain to safety equipment, such as:
Bicycle accidents often occur because a driver fails to see a cyclist. Some of the scenarios which can cause a Dallas bicycle accident include:
Bicyclists have a much narrower profile than passenger vehicles, and when drivers are distracted, impaired, or simply not looking, tragedies can occur. Regardless of how an accident occurs, if a driver was negligent, they may be liable for an accident.
It is not always clear who is liable for an accident - cycling accidents can be caused by negligent drivers, bicycle manufacturing defects, and hazards in the road, such as pavement cracks or potholes. An experienced cycling accident lawyer can help a victim determine who may be liable for their injuries, or the wrongful death of a loved one.
Compensation available in a personal injury claim is called damages, and generally includes:
An experienced lawyer can help you calculate the damages available and pursue a claim against all liable parties, including your own uninsured/underinsured insurance policy, if applicable.
In every state, injury victims have a limited window of time called a statute of limitations. In most cases in Texas, this is two years from the date of your accident. It is always advisable to begin claim proceedings as soon as possible, in the interest of preserving evidence and documenting damages.

Car Accident Case
I was in a terrible car wreck back in June. I found Brooks & Radchenko and was put into contact with Halina. She assisted me in finding and receiving medical treatment to treat my injuries so that I could return to work. She also fought for the insurance company to pay a settlement to cover all of my expenses from the car wreck, my lost wages from missing work, and compensation for my pain. I could not imagine having a better attorney for this situation.
