Bicycle Accident Attorneys in Dallas
According the NHTSA’s National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA), approximately 45,000 bicyclists were injured and there were 818 bicyclist deaths in 2015. When bicyclists obey the same rules as motor vehicles, the potential for an accident can be reduced. The “Share the Road” campaign encourages automobile drivers to understand the importance of the awareness of bicycles on the road.
Both cyclists and motorists must obey the rules. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, motorists must look for cyclists when exiting their vehicle, give enough room for cyclists to travel on the road (3 feet clearance) and when applicable, give them the right of way. Cyclists must always obey the traffic and stop signals as well as roadway markings. Additionally, cyclists should always ride with the flow of traffic, in a single file and in the right-hand lane.
Even with the best safety efforts, bicycle accidents do occur and can cause serious injury and even death generally because they are more exposed than motorists. Bicycle accident injuries can include traumatic brain injuries, facial injury, broken or fractured bones, spinal or back injury and other surface or internal injuries.
