Austin Bicycle Accidents

Riding a bicycle is great exercise, a wonderful way to spend time outdoors and a method of transportation used by many in Austin. Unfortunately, cyclists do not have the benefit of safety equipment such as seat belts and airbags, leaving them vulnerable to catastrophic injury and death when struck by negligent motorists.

In addition to the immense physical trauma that can be suffered in a bicycle accident, cyclists are left to deal with emotional and financial stress as well. Jim Terry and Trent Kelly — Austin bicycle accident attorneys at Terry & Kelly, PLLC — understand how difficult it is to move forward while medical bills pile up, and they work tirelessly to obtain full compensation for the victims of negligence.

Clients who work with Jim and Trent gain the peace of mind that comes with working directly with an experienced advocate every step of the way. From the initial investigation through settlement negotiations and a potential trial, we provide one-on-one service, never passing off our clients to inexperienced lawyers or assistants who are unfamiliar with their case.

Causes Of Bicycle Accidents

Bike accidents in Texas occur due to a variety of negligent actions by car and truck drivers. Some of the most common causes of bicycle crashes include:

  • Making an illegal turn
  • Failure to signal or check mirrors before merging

Regardless of the exact cause, if you have been injured in a bicycle accident, you should contact our office to find out how we can protect your rights.
