Our Austin accident lawyers pursue full compensation for commuter cyclists, children on bikes or recreational bicyclists hit by cars in Travis County, Williamson County, Hays County and surrounding communities.

Failure to See Is No Defense

In October 2009, the City of Austin passed a safe passing law requiring motorists to give bike riders a buffer of at least three feet (six feet for big trucks and commercial vehicles). The city also provides many designated bike lanes, which drivers are not allowed to use for passing, turn lanes or parking.

Despite these efforts to create bike-friendly streets and prevent bicycle accidents, most drivers fail to watch for cyclists or refuse to share the road with them. If the driver denies wrongdoing and blames the victim, our job is to demonstrate the negligence: failure to stop or yield, drifting into bike lanes, pulling out or backing up without looking, and a hundred other ways that bike riders pay the price.

Compensation for a Bicycle Accident

We are familiar with the common injuries: broken collar bones and other fractures, head and face injuries, back and neck injuries, leg injuries, soft tissue damage, lacerations and pavement scrapes. We know the value of these injuries and fight the insurance companies to reach a settlement that meets your needs, including damages for lost wages and pain and suffering.
