Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

Bicycles, also known as "vehicles" in the state of Texas, are considered a vehicle under the personal injury law. This means that in the state of Texas, bicyclists are afforded the same rights and protections as motor vehicle drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.

Bicyclists are vulnerable to injury because they do not have the same level of protection as motor vehicle drivers and passengers. This is why the cause of a bicycle accident can play a major role in the severity of the injury.

Some common causes of Houston bicycle accidents include:

  • Driver negligence, such as failing to yield the right of way or making a turn without checking for cyclists
  • Poor road conditions, such as potholes and debris can cause riders to lose control of their bikes
  • Motorists driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Inclement weather conditions like snow or ice can limit visibility for drivers
  • Distraction from mobile phones and other devices
  • Speeding by drivers who are not paying attention to cyclists on the roadway
  • Inadequate bicycle infrastructure such as lack of dedicated bike lanes or signs indicating where cyclists can safely ride.
  • Poor visibility due to dark clothing, low light, or riding against traffic.

What Are Common Houston Bicycle Accident Injuries?

The most common injuries suffered in bicycle accidents in Houston and throughout Texas include:

  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Internal organ damage
  • Road rash
  • Lacerations
  • Bruises

These injuries can be devastating, even fatal. For this reason, it is so important for Pasadena bicycle accident victims to contact a bicycle accident attorney as soon as possible after an accident.

What is the Statute of Limitations for a Houston Bicycle Accident?

The statute of limitations is the time frame in which you can file a personal injury claim. The statute of limitations for a bicycle accident in Texas is two years from the date of the accident. If you miss the deadline, you may lose your right to compensation for your injuries, which can be devastating.

For this reason, it is so important to contact an attorney as soon as possible after a bicycle accident. We can start investigating your case right away to determine if you have a valid claim. If you do, we will fight to get you the compensation you deserve and ensure that you don't miss the deadline.

What Damages Can I Recover in a Houston Bicycle Accident Lawsuit?

In a personal injury lawsuit, you can recover compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages. You can also recover damages for the wrongful death of a loved one in a bicycle accident.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to recover compensation for the following in a Houston bicycle accident lawsuit:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent disabilities
  • Loss of consortium
  • Property damage

Why Hire a Pasadena Bicycle Accident Attorney?

Even though bicycles are considered vehicles in Texas, you may still be at a disadvantage when trying to prove liability after a bicycle accident. This is because the driver of the vehicle may be the only person who can testify to the cause of the accident. If the driver is at fault, it is in their best interest to say that the bicyclist caused the accident.

We strive to make the process of filing claims fast and efficient. Our attorneys can provide personalized advice based on the specific facts of each case while providing compassionate support during this difficult time. Our firm is committed to holding at-fault parties accountable and obtaining maximum compensation for our injured clients.
