Balancing the Benefits and the Risks of Riding a Bicycle in McAllen

  • 0
  • Monday October 29th, 2018

Warm weather year-round in McAllen means that many people can enjoy riding their bicycles from January through December. Bicycles also represent a convenient and economical way to get around for many people, saving lots of money on gas and wear and tear on their cars. Riders also enjoy exercise and fresh air as part of a healthier lifestyle.

But in exchange for all the benefits that riding a bicycle offers, there are also risks associated with riding a bicycle in McAllen. Even when wearing a helmet, riders have very little protection while riding. An inattentive driver, unseen road hazards, or any number of threats can result in a life-changing bicycle accident at a moment’s notice.

That means accidents can and do happen frequently. Some are little more than scrapes and bruises, but others can result in serious injuries such as broken bones, head and neck injuries, or in some cases, fatalities.

When You Are Involved in a Bicycle Accident

If you are in a bicycle accident that is the result of someone else’s actions, you should immediately contact an experienced personal injury attorney to help you seek damages for your injuries.

Your attorney should be well versed not only in personal injury law but also the Texas bicycle laws that are part of a bicycle injury case.  This includes knowing a rider’s rights and responsibilities, how to prove negligence, the mechanics and possible mechanical failures associated with bicycles, and other related areas of the law.
