Bicycling is one of the more popular sports in the Central Texas area. As a result, it has raised the awareness of the motoring public to the presence of bicycles on the roads. Unfortunately, there are still too many bicyclists injured or killed as a result of the negligence of other drivers. The personal injury attorneys at Bemis, Roach & Reed have long advocated on behalf of those injured in bike accidents. We have found that many motorists still treat bicyclists as second-class citizens and do not drive as carefully as they should when sharing the road with cyclists. An experienced lawyer understands that some of these biases against bicyclists and motorcyclists creep into the courtroom, with many prospective jurors being vulnerable to defense arguments that cyclists are “hard to see.” These same prospective jurors often have a tendency to increase the burden of proof on the bicyclist and lessen it on the driver of the automobile or truck which struck the bicyclist. They need to be instructed that if such views were applied to trucks, then every truck would have an excuse when it struck a smaller car. Therefore, it is important that these issues be aggressively met head on so as to demonstrate that any such preconceived notions are unwarranted in your case. If a case goes to trial, your injury lawyer will also need to attempt to identify those individuals who are biased against bicyclists and have them struck from the jury panel. Bemis, Roach & Reed is a personal injury law firm that has successfully represented bicycle accident victims throughout the state of Texas.
Bicycle cases also often involve serious injuries including orthopedic injuries, traumatic brain injuries, disfigurement, and, in the worst cases, paralysis or death. Sadly, children are often the victim in bicycle cases. Handling a child’s claim requires a different strategy than cases involving an adult because of the child’s lack of intellectual capacity and the desire to insulate the child from the claim’s process. For more information concerning the unique nature of claims involving children, please go to the following link concerning Injuries to Children.
It is important to have a qualified Texas attorney who is able to evaluate and prove all of the personal injury damages a client has faced since the bicycle accident, along with those damages and personal injuries the client will have to face for the rest of his or her life. This is why it is important to seek legal aid from an expert law firm, such as Bemis, Roach & Reed, which is made up of litigation attorneys who are Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas State Board of Legal Specialization.
