What Causes Bike Accidents in Austin?

When cars and bicycles share the road, accidents can happen. Far too often, bicycle accidents occur because of the driver's behavior. 

Common bike accident causes involve: 

  • Distracted driving, looking at cellphone, eating, drinking, etc. 
  • Failure to yield
  • Reckless driving, veering into bike lanes, running red lights, etc.
  • Drunk driving or driving under the influence
  • Speeding

Bike accidents can be extremely serious incidents, especially if they involve a motor vehicle. As a result, it is important to have knowledgeable legal representation on your side to make sure that you receive the compensation you rightfully deserve. Our Austin bike accident attorney can provide insight on how best to proceed with your case. 

With our experience, we will be able to navigate the complexities of pursuing a claim against another driver or entity who may be liable for the accident. By working with The Law Office of Will Mitchell, you can reduce your stress levels knowing that you have someone on your side advocating for the fair compensation you will need to move forward after suffering serious injury in an accident.

Bike Accident Injuries

Bike accidents can come with a range of injuries. Although some may be minor, other injuries can be severe and even life threatening. Outside of physical injuries, victims of bike accidents can suffer psychological injuries as well. 

Bike accident injuries can include the following:

  • Head: skull fractures, concussions, cranial hemorrhage
  • Musculoskeletal: fractures, dislocations
  • Chest: rub fractures, lung injury
  • Face/eye: facial fractures, dental fractures, vision damage
  • Back: herniated discs, paralysis

After being in a bike accident, it isn't just the loss of function and mobility that can be damaging. With medical bills piling up, time off work, and a range of emotions to process, the stress can be overwhelming. That is why it is so important to have a lawyer during these trying times. We understand what sort of coverage you are legally entitled to and can fight for maximum compensation.  

Compensation You May be Eligible for After a Bike Accident

It is essential to get experienced legal support after your accident. Our Austin bike accident lawyer understands the complexities associated with these cases and works hard to secure just and fair compensation for losses.

These losses may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Future expenses for injury care
  • Lost wages from missing work
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Property damage

Exchanging insurance information with the other party is the first step in filing a claim and being compensated for damages. Before filing a claim with the at-fault driver's insurance company, it is important to collect evidence of the accident such as medical bills, bike repair estimates, and other proof of who was at fault, such as pictures and video taken at the scene. A lawyer can help guide you through this process, making sure all bases are covered so that you can get the fair compensation you deserve.

  • "Will was a lifesaver for me."

    Will was a lifesaver for me. He helped me put together documentation that resulted in having a felony dropped to a misdemeanor. Olivia, his assistant, is awesome also. I had Will's cell number and was able to call or text any time I felt uneasy. The team is very responsive and supportive. I could not ask for a better outcome. Thank you, Will!

    Will Mitchell isn't just a great attorney, he's a great guy. He got the case flat-out dismissed. He gave my life back to me.
