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.

Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable
Insurance companies aggressively defend against car accident injury claims. If you were injured by a careless driver, you will likely be in an uphill battle to obtain the compensation you need to recover from your losses. This is why it is so important to have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side.
Our lawyers have the experience, skill and resources to fully investigate car accidents and to determine causation and liability. We can help you find the facts and uncover evidence of driver negligence, including:
- Distracted driving, including texting while driving
- Drunk driving
- Reckless driving
- Lane violations
- Red light violations
- Road rage
Insurance companies have teams of attorneys and investigators who are employed to help limit and deny compensation for injury victims. Our law firm is on the side of individuals injured in car accidents. We have successfully handled hundreds of car accident injury claims and recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our clients.
