Bicycle Accidents in Texas
Every year, hundreds of individuals on bicyclists are injured in motor vehicle accidents across Texas. The lack of protection for individuals in bicycles places them at a greater risk of sustaining broken bones and other catastrophic injuries. Sadly, these chances are even further increased when children are the victims.
Bicyclists injured in motor vehicle accidents are often forced to undergo extensive medical treatment. Unfortunately, the costly treatment requirement just makes going without income from work financially devastating for victims and their families. When bicyclists are injured in motor vehicle accidents caused by negligent or reckless drivers, they should contact a Texas bicycle accident attorney as soon as possible.
