Harris County Bicycle Accident Lawyer for Victims of Fatal Bicycle Crash

If you or a loved one were injured in a bicycle accident in Texas because of a driver’s negligence, your legal options may seem simple. In Texas, the person who hit you is responsible for your accident expenses under the state’s “at-fault insurance” system.

Because of the complexities of these cases, many bicycle accident claims are not straightforward. In many cases, the person who hit you will deny any wrongdoing. If they can, they may even try to blame you for their actions. Their insurance company is likely to side with the plaintiffs’ attorney, making things even more difficult for them.

Cycling-related injuries can be extremely serious, and insurance companies are motivated to pay you the least amount of money they can.
