Bicycle Accidents

If you have been injured by a motor vehicle while riding your bicycle, your bills for your injury, and time off work, can all accumulate to have a huge impact on your financial stability.  Often, the insurance company of the driver who hit you will fight because they tend to think that bicyclers should yield the right of way to cars, in almost all situations (they are wrong).  Even though the law clearly states that bicyclers are entitled to use roadways, often adjusters for insurance companies will treat the injury to a bicycler in a way that is unfair, and unjust - using bias and generalizations against you in order to low ball your case and attempt to avoid paying for what their driver caused.  You will need a Dallas bike accident attorney to help you if you have been injured in the Dallas area on a bicycle.

Bicycling can be a great way to exercise and increase fitness.   Cycling is probably one of the best cardiovascular workouts you can give your body.  Usually, the impact on your joints and body in general are minimal as well (compared to other cardio exercising like running).  Cycling is one of the most popular ways to exercise in the world. 

Unfortunately, cycling can be dangerous due to the negligence of some drivers of automobiles.  Some drivers don’t pay attention to what is on the road ahead of or around them.  With cell-phones, radios, children yelling in the back seat, drivers of automobiles can be quite dangerous to a person riding a bicycle.  The automobile provides protection to its driver, but a bicycle doesn’t provide protection to its rider.  Serious injuries and death can be the result of an automobile-bicycle accident.
