Involved In A Serious Pedestrian Or Biking Accident?
As a pedestrian or bicyclist, the injuries you suffer from a run in with a motorist will likely be more severe than the damage their vehicle sustains. Where a car might get scratched or dented, you on the other hand may end up with broken or fractured bones, severe road rash or worse.
For this reason, if you or a loved one is the victim of a pedestrian or bicycle-related accident, talking to an attorney is necessary. Here at the Law Offices of Robert Rodriguez, I fight for everyday people like you who have been hurt by the actions of negligent drivers.
When You Should Submit A Claim
Like any state, Texas has traffic laws in place to keep everyone safe. Drivers who don’t follow these laws can cause serious car accidents that may involve other motorists, bicyclists or pedestrians.
Seek legal recourse if you were injured as a result of a driver who:
- Appeared drunk or under the influence
- Seemed distracted or was speeding
- Drove in an aggressive or reckless manner
- Was texting while driving
- Failed to stop at a crosswalk you were crossing
- Did not obey a traffic sign
- Opened their door into you and your bike
Depending on the situation, you as the pedestrian or bicyclist may share some of the fault. But even if this is true in your case, I can still help you pursue the maximum compensation that is available to you.
The Benefits Of Having Representation
Medical expenses quickly add up, and your injuries can prevent you from working. As such, you must obtain legal guidance as soon as possible. Insurance adjusters are notorious for denying bicycle accident claims, and these companies rarely pay pedestrians what their injuries are worth.
Should this happen to you, a lawyer with experience, like me, can step in to advocate for your right to recover. To learn more or to inquire about my contingency fee model, call my Houston office at 713-491-4205 today. You may also request an appointment with me online.
