Call Me Before Insurance
Insurance companies are more concerned with protecting their bottom line than they are with protecting you. They may even try to manipulate you into admitting fault so that they can deny your claim. It’s important to call me before you contact your insurance. I can walk you through what to say so that you don’t make any mistakes that can be held against you.
Why a Bicycle Lawyer is Different
We have a different perspective as cyclists since we understand how essential cycling is and how devastating it may be to be struck by a motor vehicle while riding. A bike accident can result in a wide-range of personal injury, from road rash to serious, life-threatening injuries. We also understand what it’s like to lose the desire or ability to ride.
Catastrophic and long-term injuries can be typical in severe bicycle collisions. Many cyclists who suffer serious accidents live with the consequences of their injuries for the rest of their lives. Physical scars, paralysis, and emotional trauma are all common long-term impairments.
Our Mission is to help Texas cyclists who have been injured in biking accidents get the compensation they deserve. We are determined to safeguard cyclists’ rights, and we will do everything we can to obtain the compensation you deserve for your medical expenses, lost income, and other losses.
In addition, a collision may emotionally and psychologically impact bike riders. Working with Cyclist at Law, a bicycle accident lawyer may assist you in fighting for the greatest compensation possible for your bike accident claim, including tangible and intangible losses like medical costs, pain, and suffering.
At Bill Shirer’s legal firm, we are concerned with holding automobile drivers accountable for bike accidents in Texas.
