Frisco Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Bike riders face a difficult compromise. On the one hand, they must obey all rules of the road that other travelers are required to follow. On the other hand, many car and truck drivers do not give bicyclists the respect and protection on the road they deserve.

The simple fact of the matter is that bicyclists are owed the same protections while on the road as any other people. When they are injured in accidents at the fault of another, they have the right to seek damages.

Frisco bicycle accident lawyers represent the interests of injured bicyclists in their claims against negligent drivers and their insurance companies. En Español.

Beginning the Bicycle Claims Process

It is a rare situation when a driver intentionally collides with a bicyclist. Situations like these will result in criminal charges in addition to any civil suits. Even extremely dangerous activities, such as excessive speeding or driving while intoxicated, are still not considered as causing intentional harm under the law. Thankfully, common law provides a means for people injured in accidents to hold the at-fault party responsible.

Almost all bicycle accident cases will fall under the legal umbrella of negligence. This means a plaintiff does not need to prove that the defendant intended to hurt them, but rather that the defendant was acting in a way that was likely to cause injury.

All drivers have a responsibility, or duty, to protect other people on the road. Despite many drivers’ attitudes, this extends to bike riders. By violating rules of the road, and causing accidents, these drivers violate this duty and should be held responsible for the use of a Frisco bike accident attorney. Negligence law then says that the driver is responsible for compensating the bicyclist for their losses.

Damages in Bike Accident Cases

Potential damages in bike accident cases vary depending upon the severity of the accident and the plaintiff’s specific circumstances. One item that can be claimed is reimbursement for medical costs. All negligence claims require that the plaintiff have a physical injury, so these costs form the core of the claim. Ambulance rides, emergency room bills, x-rays, MRIs, and physical therapy sessions are all costs that can be recovered.

Many people take months to recover. During this time they cannot work, are in immense pain, or even miss out on family time with loved ones. All of these combine to comprise the less precise portion of the damages claim. Frisco bicycle accident lawyers understand the true impact of these injuries on every aspect of a person’s life. We fight to obtain compensation for our clients for not just their physical injuries, but also their mental anguish.

Improving the Chance of Success

Anyone involved in a bicycle accident should immediately call the police. This ensures you receive the medical care needed, but will also trigger an investigation by the police. This investigation is required to produce a report that is the investigator’s account of the accident. The report is a key piece of evidence in any case but is especially valuable if the driver is cited for a traffic violation.

People should also take care to follow their doctor’s instructions for recovery. Importantly, injured parties should take the time to return to full health. The doctor’s notes from consistent treatment are valuable pieces of evidence in proving the impact of the plaintiff’s injuries and accurate billing statements make the claims process easier.

Frisco bicycle accident attorneys work to help clients with every aspect of their claims. In fact, once a person hires an attorney, they can no longer be contacted by the opposing side’s insurance company. Let our firm take care of the case while you focus on getting your life back on track. Contact our firm today.

I seeked the McCraw law group after a bad experience. As lawyers would do they lied to get the case. After my car was... totaled with my kids inside.my car sat in the pound for a month and a half until I took matters into my own hands. I also was told by Vanessa she had too much work to focus on my case. After we waited to move on the adjusters beat I took matters in my own hands. I was told a certain amount by her supervisor but received less but they received the 10k as in the contact plus’s 300.Also in the process we lost our pip after the settlement was received and they declined to commit to pursue my out of state insurance. I would say run !!!!!! Don’t think twice! They’re horrible! I was asked to handle the hospital bills with care! They’re very nice! You need lawyers to handle your case like you wouldn’t. In my case I handled them. I didn’t receive my complete compensation after my children and I suffered so much hardship and pain. They didn’t care. Horrible beside manors but was extremely nice to the adjusters. RUN!!!!read more

I was in an accident in March and had injuries resulting from the crash. Obviously my first call was to a doctor to get... checked out but was told I was going to need physical therapy. My second call was to the McCraw Law Group. They took care of all of the grunt work so that all I had to focus on was getting better. They were very communicative about the process, and better yet, they were incredibly responsive to any emails, calls, and questions. I was very appreciative and thankful for all of their hard work. They are a great group of people to work with when you’re needing the help.read more
