A Collision Could Have Lifelong Consequences
Bicycle accidents are a growing concern in cities and towns across Texas. More and more people are taking to the roads on bicycles, and communities have tried to accommodate by providing bike lanes and road-adjacent paths. Still, it remains difficult to guard against driver negligence, particularly with the rise of distracted driving.
Because bicycles themselves offer no protection against a collision, bicycle accident injuries are often severe. Some cyclists initially think they suffered only minor injuries, only to discover in the ensuing days and weeks that the injuries are much worse.
That is why it is so important to get medical treatment soon after the collision, not only for your physical recovery but also to establish the fact that you were injured and that your injury was acknowledged by a medical professional.
Why You Should Talk To An Attorney
After you report the accident to police and get medically treated, your next step should be to contact a personal injury lawyer. Do not discuss your accident with anyone else, including the driver of the vehicle or the insurance company. Bicycle accident cases can be particularly complex, and at-fault drivers and insurance companies are notorious for trying to deny liability in these cases.
As a trial lawyer with more than 20 years of experience, founding attorney Scotty MacLean can assess your case, explain your options and help you obtain compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and other costs resulting from the accident.
