Drivers of cars, trucks and buses often claim they did not see bicycles in time to prevent collisions along highways or on city streets. Bicyclists, on the other hand, typically complain that motorists do not give them the right of way they are entitled to. When a collision happens, concerns turn to negligence, compensation and recovery.
If you were injured or if your loved one died while bicycling in the DFW area, The Law Firm of Ted B. Lyon & Associates can help. Our Texas personal injury lawyers offer free initial consultations. If we represent you in an injury claim or wrongful death lawsuit, we will do so on a contingency basis. This means you will not owe attorneys' fees until and unless we recover compensation for you.

Obtaining Medical Care and Compensation
Injured bicyclists and pedestrians often face long recovery times and sometimes lasting disabilities because of serious injuries such as:
- Broken bones
- Crush injuries and amputations
- Traumatic brain injuries (head injuries)
- Back, neck and shoulder injuries
- Hip, knee and ankle injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Facial wounds or other wounds resulting in scarring and disfigurement
As with any serious accident, you stand a greater chance of maximizing recovery of compensation if you consult with a lawyer sooner rather than later. An experienced attorney can handle communications on your behalf, reducing the chances that you might harm your case without realizing it.
In particular, we strongly recommend you consult with a lawyer before submitting to lengthy questioning from law enforcement, insurers or other parties in an accident. We also recommend that you and your family not discuss the accident in detail through social media or in conversations with friends and family.
The focus of your energies after a serious bicycle accident needs to be on recovery: both medical recovery and financial recovery. Our personal injury attorneys have extensive experience helping bicycle accident victims and other people injured in traffic accidents recover compensation. We investigate crashes, consult with medical providers and get to know an individual and his or her family in order to understand the full impact of the injuries and losses.
