Dallas is a beautiful city, so it’s no wonder you want to get out on your bike to experience it close up. Whether you are an exercise and leisure rider or someone who uses their bike as their regular mode of transportation, we know you take steps to be safe when you are riding.
We also know that you can’t control the actions of drivers on the roadway and that they are often careless around cyclists. This can have devastating consequences on your well-being. We recognize that sometimes the roadway or sidewalk you are riding on is not properly maintained by authorities. This can cause serious bicycle crashes.
If you need a bicycle accident attorney in Dallas, you can count on the team at the Law Offices of Dorothy Hyde to have your back. We will work to ensure that you are compensated properly when someone else was at fault.
You have a certain expectation when you ride your bicycle on the roadway or sidewalk. One of those expectations is that there won’t be any damage that can cause you harm. Unfortunately, sometimes sidewalks and roadways are improperly designed or poorly maintained by governmental authorities or companies contracted to fix them. Whether it is root damage that causes a sidewalk to buckle or potholes that haven’t been filled, they can cause you serious harm when you ride.
If a driver is driving too fast for conditions, fails to yield the right-of-way, or just ignores bicyclists, they can cause serious harm. Worse, if they are distracted by their phone or other devices and strike a cyclist, they should be liable for their negligence.
In cases when drivers are impaired by drugs or alcohol, they are much more likely to injure or kill cyclists. Not only should they be held criminally liable, but financially liable as well.
Bicyclists don’t have the same amount of protection that people in vehicles do when a crash occurs. When cyclists are hit by vehicles that weigh thousands of pounds, injuries can range from lacerations and broken bones to more serious internal and head trauma. Often, surgery is required to fix damages. Bicycle injuries can lead to extended hospital and rehabilitation times, impacting the injured personal both emotionally and financially.

After I was severely injured, I didn’t know what to do next. One of my colleagues recommended reaching out to Dorothy for representation. When I finally did, I didn’t regret my decision — I received tremendous support and she treated me like family. She brought the best outcome and I’m amazed at the passion she brings into her work. I would recommend her services without any reservation.
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.
Thank you for bringing my claim against the construction company to a successful conclusion. You made the process less intimidating and made me feel like the struggle I had to endure was valid. It has helped me cope with a lot of post-accident challenges differently. You were more than I expected — thanks again.

Can I see them?”). Yuck. Uber has finally listed all types of sexual misconduct and sexual assault reported by their riders and […]
