Pedestrian, Bicycle & Scooter Accident Attorneys in San Antonio

Representing Individuals Who Have Been Hit By Cars

In Texas, a pedestrian almost always has the right-of-way. Even if a pedestrian is struck by a motor vehicle while walking down the middle of the interstate, the driver can be held liable for major damages in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. Additionally, motorists are required by law to yield to bicyclists and individuals riding or operating scooters.

If you were hurt or you lost a loved one in any kind of pedestrian, bicycle, or scooter accident, you have the same rights as any other auto accident victim. You have the right to find an experienced pedestrian accidents attorney who will fight for full and fair compensation for you and your family.

How Bicycle Injury Claims Work

Bicycle riding is a growing trend in San Antonio. As more and more people take to the roads on their bicycles, the number of bicycle accident injuries increases. Even though most bicyclists follow proper safety procedures, many Texas bicyclists each year are hit by motor vehicle drivers who were driving negligently, recklessly, and carelessly. While the city is bound to experience "growing pains" with more bikes on the road, our goal is to help eliminate bicycle accidents by holding negligent drivers accountable for the harm they have caused.

Bicycle accident litigation is similar to motor vehicle accident litigation. Many of the stages of a personal injury case are the same. However, the injuries in bicycle accidents—much like those in pedestrian and scooter accidents—are likely to be more severe. Even bicyclists wearing helmets can suffer traumatic brain injuries in certain instances.

Our San Antonio bicycle accident attorneys represent people throughout Texas who have been injured in accidents involving all types of motor vehicles, including cars, trucks, and buses, as well as accidents involving ATVs, RVs, and four-wheelers. This broad range of experience equips us to handle many different types of cases. We know what to look for and what issues may be unique for bicycle, scooter, and pedestrian accident victims.

Reliable Representation for Scooter Accident Victims

As gas prices increase and traffic worsens, more and more Texans are choosing alternative methods of travel. In addition to walking and cycling to work, school, or around town, many people are opting to use motorized scooters to get around. Companies like Bird, a scooter-share startup that’s been compared to Uber, are taking advantage of this growing trend. Now, anyone can utilize scooter transportation, simply by downloading an app.

Of course, with the increase in scooter usage comes an increase in scooter-related accidents. The prevalence of scooters on Texas streets is fairly new and, as such, motorists are not often looking out for scooter riders.

If you or your loved one was injured in a scooter accident, you still have the same rights as any other injured individual. Whether you were struck by a car or motor vehicle of some kind, hit by a bicyclist, or were injured due to a defective scooter or dangerous road conditions, our firm can help. Our San Antonio scooter accident attorneys have experience with these unique and often complex cases; we can help you understand your rights and fight for the full recovery you deserve.

What to Do If You Are Injured in a Pedestrian-Auto Accident

A hit-and-run bicycle, scooter, or pedestrian accident can be devastating. Often, the person who is not in the car suffers the vast majority of injuries, as he or she is essentially unprotected against a large, quickly moving vehicle.

Some of the common injuries resulting from these types of accidents include:

  • Broken bones
  • Hemorrhaging
  • Internal organ damage
  • Amputation
  • Burns
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Death

Many Texans do not know that their own uninsured motorist coverage on their automobile insurance policy may pay for these serious injuries, even when the responsible driver cannot be found. At The Law Offices of Tyler & Peery, we recommend that our clients carry at least $100,000 in uninsured motorist coverage to protect themselves and their families.

For more information and to discuss your legal options in seeking full and fair recovery for hit-and-run or crosswalk/bicycle lane injuries sustained in a serious accident, contact the San Antonio pedestrian, bicycle, and scooter accident lawyers at The Law Offices of Tyler & Peery today.
