Keeping the Roads of Houston Safe for Everyone
Houston is one of America’s most populous cities, and its dense traffic includes pedestrians and bicycles among passenger vehicles, semi-trucks and commercial vehicles.
Traffic accidents that involve pedestrians or bicyclists can result in severe injuries or death to the individual on foot or bike, and these collisions are often the result of negligent passenger or commercial vehicle drivers who fail to notice or properly yield to pedestrians or bicyclists. If you were hurt or a loved one was killed in an accident caused by a careless driver, Houston injury attorney Tony Malley may be able to help you pursue the financial compensation you need in order to cope with medical expenses and other damages.
Lacking the obvious physical protections of those in motor vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists are vulnerable to severe injuries in the event of a collision. Common injuries in pedestrian and bicycle accidents include:
Pedestrian and bicycle accidents frequently occur in crosswalks, parking garages and school zones, as well as near parks and along designated bike and foot paths. Common factors in pedestrian and bicycle accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Reckless driving
- Failure to yield
- Encroaching on shoulders or bike lanes
