Pursuing Bicycle Accident Claims

Bicycle accidents are frightening at best and may end tragically. The force of a motor vehicle versus bicycle collision on the highway is often enough to traumatically injure a bicyclist and completely total their bike.

At the Law Offices of Juan A. Aguirre, P.C., in Lewisville, we recommend that a bicyclist injured in an accident seek medical attention immediately, even if initially looks like there is only slight damage. The possibility of internal injuries, concussions and soft tissue damage from a bike accident means that you need to see a doctor to get checked out.

A Growing Problem

Even though more people ride bicycles, many car and truck drivers do not place a priority on sharing the road. This results in many biking injury accidents. There are several ways that bicyclists get injured on roads and highways. Here are a few common reasons that cyclists get injured or killed:

  • Failure to yield to bicyclists – turning right, left or backing up into the bicyclist's path
  • Passing without adequate clearance – often without signaling
  • Impaired driving – the driver pays inadequate attention due to alcohol, drugs or cellphone use
  • Hit-and-run

Your Partner In Insurance Compensation

Many property losses from a bicycle accident will have insurance coverage, though Juan Aguirre knows that insurance companies will usually try to get out of paying compensation for your injuries and loss of property.
