Bicycle & Pedestrian Accidents
Failing to Yield the Right of Way!
Automobiles, bicycles, and pedestrians all share the roadways in Texas. When automobile drivers fail to follow the traffic laws that protect areas where bicycles and pedestrians cross, serious injuries are very likely to occur. There are specific rules that apply to bicyclist and pedestrians that are intended to protect them and keep them safe on the road. Even when these rules are followed, automobile drivers often fail to keep a proper lookout for bicyclists and do not yield the right of way to pedestrians, causing debilitating injuries.
Unlike car wrecks, when an accident occurs between an automobile and a pedestrian and a cyclist, there is more emphasis on determining if the rules that apply to the shared areas were ignored. There is some urgency to preserve any evidence that could be used to show how the incident occurred. For example, if there is a video of the crash occurring in a parking lot, a cross-walk or a private road, steps should be taken immediately to make sure the videos do not get erased. These cases are unique and require that the case be examined very thoroughly to increase your chances of holding negligent drivers responsible!
