Riding a bicycle is a wonderful way to explore Arlington while getting great exercise. As a mode of transportation, bicycles are gaining popularity in city areas nationwide. Some find it to be a leisurely weekend activity, while other use a bicycle to get to work every morning. Whatever the case maybe, riding a bicycle should be an enjoyable experience.
Unfortunately, riding a bicycle does not come without risk. No matter what city you are in, there are errant, irresponsible drivers on the roadway. If one of these drivers are negligent and hit you while you are on a bike, the results could be severe injury or worse. If you or a loved one has recently experience a bicycle accident, it may be time to reach out to an Arlington bicycle accident attorney. At The Law Office of Dorothy Hyde, we bring a wealth of experience to the table. Our lawyers will fight endlessly to obtain compensation on your behalf.
When you are involved in a bicycle accident, you must consider the riding conditions, other drivers involved, and the severity of injuries sustained.
The first element you should consider is the roadway or sidewalk you were riding on when the accident occurred. Ask yourself the following questions: Were there any potholes that caused my accident? Were the roadways I was forced to travel on poorly designed? Could my accident have been avoided if the roadway or sidewalk I was on was maintained better? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may want to consider an attorney.
If there was a driver involved in your accident, there are many factors that could prove their driving to be negligent. Were they distracted by a phone or device? Did they consume any illicit substances that caused their negligent driving? At any point leading up to the accident, did they fail to properly adhere to driving laws? The answers to these questions could be paramount in your claim.
You should always consider the severity of your injuries after being involved in a bicycle accident. Due to the exposure and lack of protection bicycles offer, accident injuries are usually severe. Did you suffer any serious injuries that required a hospital stay? Were you forced to miss work as a result of these injures? Consulting an Arlington bicycle accident attorney could help you answer these questions and put you on the road to obtaining compensation.
The aftermath for a bicycle incident is sure to be difficult and full of suffering. You should never let an injury go untreated due to fear of financial strain or missing work. After being treated, you should seriously consider consulting with an Arlington bicycle accident attorney. We at the Law Offices of Dorothy Hyde are ready to fight by your side. With our experience, we know that the financial strains of a bicycle accident are not limited to medical bills. Such injures can force you to miss out on work or other sources of potential income.

After I was severely injured, I didn’t know what to do next. One of my colleagues recommended reaching out to Dorothy for representation.

I’ve always known that I needed an insurance policy to protect me if I got into a car accident. But when I got involved in a car crash, I realized how important it is to have a lawyer protect me from my insurance company! This firm settled my case really quickly and delivered excellent results. Dottie secured a fair and equitable settlement, and I’d recommend her to anyone in need of good counsel and representation.

There is no denying that helmets save lives and prevent major injuries in motorcycle accidents, yet there is no requirement in Dallas that says motorcyclists must wear one. That may change. Texas Representative Victoria Neave (D-Dallas) has introduced a bill that would make helmet wearing a requirement for all motorcycle riders in the state. In […]
We expect our leaders to be responsible, examples that show the community the correct way to do things. That is why it has been so shocking to hear the Dallas Councilman Kevin Felder may have committed a crime. Last month, we learned that Felder was accused of hitting a teenager who was riding a scooter […]
In late February, a Dallas deputy was injured after a driver collided with two Dallas County police cars in a hit-and-run incident. The two police cars were blocking two lanes of traffic due to a stalled tractor-trailer. The 2005 Dodge truck struck both vehicles and then fled the scene. There was a deputy in each […]
Today, we want to bring you a story from a Houston hospital because it highlights a pattern of medical errors. At St. Luke’s Medical Center, a woman was given a blood transfusion last year. The problem is that she was given the wrong blood type. Medical staff did not notice that the blood sample that […]
Dogs are beautiful but wild creatures. They have their own personalities and often will do all they can to protect their owners. However, not all dogs understand what it means to protect or what it means to not attack. There are some dogs who are just wired to run and attack. It doesn’t make them […]
