Bicycle & Pedestrian Accident Attorney in Plano, TX
In Collin County, bicyclists share the road with trucks, cars, and other automobiles. A collision with one of these vehicles can result in serious injury or death. Broken bones, bruises, and concussions are the some of the most common injuries associated with bike accidents. In order for you to get fair compensation, you need to hire a bicycle accident attorney right away. Examples of bike accidents that we have handled involve:
- Vehicles failing to yield the right of way
- Vehicles passing too closely
- Vehicles making an unsafe turn
- Vehicle operators failing to watch the road
- Vehicle operators who are intoxicated
When the driver of a motor vehicle engages in negligent behavior, serious accidents can take place. Bike accidents often come with serious personal injury. As bicycles are significantly smaller than full-sized cars, they can be harder to spot. This attributes to a majority of bike accidents in and around the Collin County area. A majority of collisions between cars and bikes happen simply because the driver of the car fails to see the cyclist in time. The same excuse occurs with drivers and pedestrians. Although these excuses may be true, they are certainly not a means of defense against a charge of negligent driving. Drivers owe a duty of care to other motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists with whom they share the road. When drivers act negligently, they are breaching their duty. Drivers can be found to be the causation of, or “at fault” in, an accident. This process can be complex to navigate without the help of a bicycle accident attorney.
