Dallas Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Were you hit by a negligent driver?
Bicycling is a fun and healthy activity enjoyed by many in Texas. But when bicycles and cars share the same space, the accident attorneys at Tracey Fox King & Walters know that accidents can happen.
Bicyclists who ride the streets of Dallas and surrounding communities are required to follow the rules of the road. They have to obey traffic signals. They have to signal before turning. They must operate their bicycle safely, just as any other vehicle.
But too many drivers don't treat bicycles as another vehicle on the road. They treat people on bicycles as a nuisance. That's if they even see them. Some drivers don't pay enough attention while driving, resulting in a bicycle accident.
How did your bicycle accident happen?
Most likely, your bicycle accident occurred because a driver was doing one of these things while driving:
- Drinking and driving
- Being reckless
This can lead to an accident, and a bicyclist who gets hurt-or killed. Since they aren't sitting in an enclosed vehicle, bicyclists can suffer serious injuries from being hit by a car. They include broken bones, injuries to the spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Surgery may be needed, as well as hospitalization and extensive rehabilitation.
When a driver's negligence results in a bicyclist getting hurt, that driver needs to be held responsible. That's where we come in.
We take action
If you've been hurt in a bicycle accident, it's important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. If you wait too long, evidence can be lost and witnesses can move away or forget important details. The Dallas bicycle accident lawyers at Tracey Fox King & Walters can start on your case immediately. We'll gather evidence and interview witnesses while their memories of the accident are still fresh. We'll review all documents related to your accident, including medical records and police reports.
We will also determine how much financial compensation you are owed. This includes current and any future expenses for medical care. It may also include lost wages, as well as damages for pain and suffering. Each case is different and the amount depends on many factors.
We demand justice
Once we know how much financial compensation you should receive, we will fight to get it. The insurance company may offer you less money. They may even suggest that you are responsible for the accident. But we will build a strong case that proves the driver of the car was negligent. If necessary, we will fight that case in court.
Our disciplined approach to cases produces results. Insurance companies are aware of this and know we won't put up with any attempts to give clients less than what they deserve. It's why they usually end up agreeing to a settlement that is favorable for our clients.
