Bicycle Accidents

A bicycle accident can change your life. If it does, our lawyers will be there to advocate for you.

Being a bicyclist in Pearland and the surrounding areas of Brazoria County, Texas may be fun, a great way to get some exercise, and the environmentally-conscious choice, but it is also dangerous. Over a six-year period in Texas, there were more than 12,700 bicycle crashes recorded, as well as nearly 300 cyclist fatalities. While Pearland is not the riskiest city in our state in which to ride, a bicyclist is not truly protected from the risk of an accident anywhere in Texas.

At the law offices of Scott M. Brown & Associates, our experienced Pearland bicycle accident lawyers are passionate about representing bicyclists whose lives have been changed as a result of a bicycle accident. If you have been in a bicycle accident in Pearland, call us directly today for a consultation.

Damages Incurred in a Bicycle Accident can be Significant 

Our lawyers understand that when a bicyclist and a motor vehicle collide, it is often not the 4,000-pound (or greater) vehicle that is impacted, but instead the cyclist. When a cyclist is hit by a car, they may suffer severe and life-changing, if not fatal, injuries, as well as tens of thousands of dollars in financial losses. These losses are in the form of:

  • Medical expenses: A cyclist involved in an accident will likely require emergency transportation to a hospital, surgeries, in-hospital stays, and perhaps weeks’ or months’ worth of treatment.
  • Lost wages: If a cyclist is seriously injured in a crash, chances are that they will be unable to return to work in the near future, resulting in the potential loss of wages totally thousands of dollars. This can be a huge financial strain on a cyclist who is already coping with high medical costs.
  • Property damage losses: In addition to the cost of the bike involved in the crash, which could be very expensive, a cyclist may also require replacement of clothing and personal items they have on them at the time of the incident, such as a smartphone.
  • Pain, suffering, and diminished quality of life: The noneconomic losses suffered by a cyclist can be significant. Our lawyers believe that injured cyclists should be compensated for their pain, suffering, and diminished quality of life in addition to actual financial losses.
