INJURED BICYCLERS REPRESENTED IN TEXAS

bicycle in an accident Bicycling is a popular mode of transportation in Denton, as it is both environmentally friendly and heart healthy.

Because of our ability to represent and safeguard the rights of severely injured clients, we have earned a reputation for success over the years.

BICYCLE COLLISIONS ARE CAUSED BY A VARIETY OF FACTORS

Bicycle accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, but because cyclists are less protected than drivers or passengers, they are significantly more likely to suffer catastrophic or fatal injuries. In a bicycle collision, there could be several factors at play: A collision with a pedestrian or a car door, for example, may not result in catastrophic injury on its own, but it may propel the bicycle into the path of approaching automobiles or trucks.

BICYCLE COLLISIONS CAN HAPPEN IN A VARIETY OF WAYS

Intersection collisions — When a cyclist stops at an intersection, but a motorist does not, a rear-end collision occurs. The driver is frequently travelling too fast or following too closely and is unable to stop in time.

Left-turn collisions occur when a cyclist approaches an intersection, and an automobile already there makes a left turn. A distracted driver may slam into or pull immediately in front of a bike, causing the bicycle to collide with the car’s side.

Right-hand turn (“right hook”) collisions — As a bicyclist and a car approach an intersection, the automobile makes a right-hand turn, crossing the bike lane and colliding with the bicyclist who is traveling straight. When the driver of a car fails to utilize the turn signal to inform the biker, it might be dangerous.

Collisions with doors – A driver may open a door without first looking for a bike approaching from behind. Slamming into the door by a biker can be incredibly easy.

YOUR BICYCLE ACCIDENT CLAIM MUST BE PROVEN

Although a negligent person is involved in many bicycle accident lawsuits, identifying, and proving culpability can be difficult. We at the Law Office of Doug Goyen are meticulous in our investigation of bicycle accident cases because we must either convince an insurance that our client is entitled to the compensation we are seeking – or convince a jury that our client was not at fault.

BICYCLE ACCIDENTS CAN BE CAUSED BY A VARIETY OF FACTORS

Careless driving – By paying attention and obeying all traffic laws, every vehicle should be able to safely share the road with bicyclists. We are all aware that inattentive drivers are prone to making errors or poor decisions. Distracted driving, neglecting to signal, and failing to yield appropriately are all examples of these.

Aggressive driving and road rage are common in Texas. Motorists go at a much faster pace than cyclists, and irritated motorists might become aggressive. In order to urge a cyclist to move over or accelerate up, drivers may tailgate them. Drivers may sometimes attempt to pass bicyclists in an unsafe manner by approaching too closely and colliding with them. Drivers who are enraged on the road may threaten or hurt cyclists on purpose.

Impaired driving – It is difficult enough for drunk or drugged drivers to pay attention and avoid hitting other cars; it’s far more difficult for them to see and avoid bikes. Many life-threatening or deadly bike crashes in Denton are caused by drunk drivers.

Opening a vehicle door in front of a bike — As previously stated, open door collisions with cyclists are common in Denton. While these crashes may not involve moving cars, cyclists might sustain serious injuries if they are flung from their bikes into traffic, other objects, or the road after colliding with a fixed car door. The law demands that vehicle occupants check their mirrors before opening their doors.

Of course, drivers are not the only ones to blame for collisions. If the driver were on the job at the time of the crash, the employer could be held liable for the employee’s negligence. Bicycle accidents may also occur as a result of the negligence of other businesses and parties.

The following are examples of negligent behavior:

Departments of Transportation are responsible for designing and maintaining safe roads, which includes bike lanes and bike pathways. If a bicycle is seriously injured while riding on a bike lane, road, or path that has potholes or other dangers or is improperly built, the responsible government agency should be held liable.

Bicycles or components that are improperly designed, as well as helmets that are defective – It is the responsibility of bicycle manufacturers to sell bicycles that are safe to ride. When a company sells a defective bicycle or bicycle part and the rider crashes as a result of the malfunction, the company should be held liable for the cyclist’s substantial damages. Defective bicycle helmets, which failed to function properly and resulted in catastrophic brain damage, fall into the same category.

WHEN SHOULD YOU HIRE A BICYCLE ACCIDENT ATTORNEY?

Your choice of attorney is critical in any situation. Nonetheless, do not put off contacting the correct law company for too long. If you do, you might find it more difficult to gather proof as time goes on.

You also have a limited time to file a lawsuit under Texas law:

If you have to sue the government, you usually only have six months from the date of the accident to file your claim.

You normally have only two years from the date of the injury to sue a private citizen.

Doug is a great attorney. He took care of my auto accident claim promptly, and answered any questions I had. I also had one of my hospital bills go into collections for non-payment. I was able to contact Doug a year after the accident, and received a copy of the check the hospital claimed they didn’t receive. I highly recommend this guy. David J.

★★★★★
Mr. Goyen helped me take on my own insurance company, the great and mighty Allstate. My prior firm basically dumped me, with a permanent injury because the case didn’t meet their financial guidelines for a settlement. I was a bicycle rider hit by a car driver at an intersection, and Allstate was the company on BOTH SIDES OF THE CLAIM. My own insurance company tried to throw me under the bus to limit their payout! Without Mr. Goyen’s help, I would have been left with NOTHING! I had thousands of dollars in unpaid medical bills, unable to receive treatment to correct the issue. He was unafraid and helped me get the best settlement I could … I am tremendously thankful! Pamala M.
