Riding a bicycle is an excellent form of exercise and a low-cost option for commuting around Houston. Unfortunately, our city is not designed with cyclists in mind. Instead, motor vehicles and commercial trucks rule the road. Cyclists enjoy few dedicated bicycle lanes, and they confront too many drivers who refuse to share the road with a two-wheeled friend.

We Help Clients Injured in All Types of Crashes
Cycling is risky. You face many challenges, including dangerous drivers and hazardous roads. We have helped clients hurt in all sorts of accidents:
Open-door Accidents: A passenger in a car parked on the shoulder could open their door without checking if a cyclist is approaching from behind. Because most cyclists ride close to the shoulder, they can slam into the opened door.
Rear-end Collisions: Cyclists are exposed when stopped at intersections. A driver could fail to see them and smash into them.
Left-hand Turn Accidents: This crash happens most commonly when a motorist is waiting to make a left-hand turn at an intersection. They fail to see a cyclist coming through the intersection and colliding with them.
Head-on Collisions: Some drivers will drift into oncoming traffic and smash into a cyclist head-on. These are very deadly collisions.
Pothole Accidents:Potholes and other road defects can send a cyclist tumbling over the handlebars.
We Seek Fair Compensation for Serious Injuries
Some of the most common cycling injuries involve the head and neck, fractures, and nerve damage. Any exposed skin can also suffer devastating abrasions if it drags along the road.
These accidents warrant meaningful compensation so that cyclists do not suffer financially. We can seek money damages in a settlement to cover:
All medical expenses, including any future rehabilitation or doctor visits
Lost income, including lost earning capacity for permanent injuries
Property damage, such as damage to your bicycle
Pain and suffering
Emotional distress or mental anguish
Liability for Bicycle Accidents
Our legal team gets to work identifying who or what caused your accident. Once identified, this person should pay you compensation. In many accidents, we already know the identity of the driver who struck you. But other cases require more investigation. We have brought claims against:
Negligent or aggressive drivers
Commercial truck drivers and trucking companies
Municipalities for defective roads
Bicycle manufacturers for a defect
Rental companies if you were injured on a rental bicycle
In our experience, few people or businesses want to admit fault. So we collect evidence of the collision to use for your benefit. You can also help your case by taking photographs of the vehicles involved or any pothole which upended you. Also, identify witnesses who can testify as to what happened.
