Galveston County Bike Accident Attorney
When you ride a bicycle, sharing the road with automobile drivers is a game of Russian roulette. You can't predict when a drunk, drowsy or distracted motorist will run a red light, drift onto the shoulder or suddenly cut you off.
The Tylka Law Firm in League City, Texas, has represented bicycle accident victims in Galveston County, Houston and Harris County for more than 25 years. We have the resources and experience to hold drivers fully accountable for their negligence and the injuries or death they cause. Call us day or night at 713-829-6048 or e-mail us for a free consultation and prompt investigation.
Why Didn't the Driver See You?
Bicycle riders have the same right to the road as automobile drivers. This fact is not much consolation after a devastating collision with a car, but it is the foundation for a personal injury claim. Attorney Larry Tylka conducts a thorough investigation to prove driver negligence. We have handled many bicycle accident cases such as:
- Cyclists hit by drunks in the early morning hours
- People texting while driving or otherwise preoccupied
- Motorists veering into designated bike lanes
- Drivers turning or changing lanes without looking
- Opening a car door into the path of a bicycle
- Hitting bicyclists in crosswalks
Our job is to prove negligence, whether the driver failed to yield, wasn't fully focused on driving or was too sleepy or intoxicated to be behind the wheel. We use police reports, witness accounts, crash scene evidence and other tools such as toxicology results and cell phone records to build a case for liability.
