Riding a bicycle is fun and environmentally conscientious. Unfortunately, bicyclists are extremely vulnerable to becoming seriously injured when sharing the road with other vehicles that are larger, stronger, and faster. Understanding your rights and options after a bicycle accident can have a significant impact on the outcome of your case. The FVF team understands bicycle safety laws, and knows how to help people who were injured in a bicycle accident understand their rights and options.
Far too often we see Austin bicyclists who have been injured in similar situations and for the same reasons – namely driver negligence. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a significant portion of bicycle accidents were caused by motor vehicle operators. Data from 2012 from the NHTSA shows that nearly a third of injuries were caused by collisions with cars. Another source of bicycle accidents is poor roadways and walkways such as uneven sidewalks or cracks.
If you are hit by a car while on a bike, there are certain steps you should take as soon as possible to both ensure your health and safety and protect your rights, should you decide to pursue legal action.
