Texas Bicycle Accidents
SMSH supports our Houston, Texas bicycle riders. We know that you share the road with both small and large motor vehicles and sometimes those vehicles do not operate safely in sharing the road with bicycles. As bikers you have little to no protection against the motor vehicles that can crash into you while you are riding, and therefore the injuries resulting from a crash are often more severe. Texas Bicycle Accident Injuries can include road burn, head injuries, neck injuries, fractured limbs, and death.
The causes of bicycle accidents can include cars turning unexpectedly without looking, parked cars opening their doors suddenly without checking for cyclists, motorists failing to give the right of way to cyclists, negligent and reckless driving habits like texting while driving and other distractions, car pulling into traffic in front of a cyclist, and intoxicated drivers.
Bicycle accidents are common, so if you spend much time on the road, chances are good that you will see or be a part of a bike accident. Since the injuries resulting from bike accidents are often severe, you need to be prepared to pay for long-term care and deal with extensive lost wages.
Proper Investigation is Crucial to Establishing Your Bicycle Accident Claims
Weather conditions, road conditions, visibility, and other factors play a huge role in making bike accidents complicated. Police reports tend to condense the facts of a auto-bicycle accident. As a cyclist, you must have a thorough investigation conducted to preserve the evidence for your case. Wasting any amount of time can prove costly to your claims.
SMSH will hire an expert to take photos of the bicycle accident site as soon as possible after the accident, we will interview witnesses, and as needed, we will hire experts to reconstruct the bike accident and testify in your case.
