Fort Worth is a great city for bicycle enthusiasts. Besides its excellent bicycle riding climate, Fort Worth is full of parks, trails, and attractions throughout the city that make for great bicycle riding paths and destinations. Unfortunately, bicycle riding comes with bicycle accident risks. You can reduce your accident and injury risks by abiding by bicycle laws, exercising due caution and care, and wearing a helmet and other safety gear, but accidents caused by someone else’s fault are sometimes unavoidable.
According to the Texas Department of Public Safety, the three most common bicycle/motor vehicle accident scenarios are detailed below:
Bicycle accidents do not always involve motor vehicles. Other common bicycle accidents occur for reasons such as poorly maintained roads, hazardous road conditions such as gravel or ice, and a sudden appearance, such as an animal, person, or opened car door. Listed below are effective ways to keep yourself safer when you are riding your bicycle:
If you have been involved in a bicycle accident, contact Fort Worth bicycle accident attorney, Dorothy Hyde, to schedule a consultation. We will review the facts of your case and conduct an investigation to gather evidence that supports your case. We will talk to witnesses, find and obtain any existing video of the accident, and explore conditions that may have caused the accident such as poor road maintenance. If your accident involved a driver for hire such as a cab or rideshare, we will investigate further into time logs and regulations compliance.
If you are contacted by any insurance companies, be sure to understand that they are looking to use anything you say as an admission of fault or they may attempt to settle the case for as little as possible, an amount that does not fully compensate you for your injuries. We will help you explore all of your damages and injuries to determine an amount that will fully compensate you and negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf. The Fort Worth bicycle accident team at The Law Office of Dorothy Hyde is ready to be your advocate and make sure that any settlement you accept is fair and appropriate.

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.
