Protecting the Rights of Injured Bicyclists

Texas has thousands of miles of bike trails, and our climate allows people to comfortably ride their bikes for much of the year. On the other hand, there are relatively few bicycle lanes for cyclists who wish to ride on city and suburban roads. As a result, many cyclists ride very closely to cars and trucks that are much larger and can go much faster. Even though cyclists have the same right to use the roads as motor vehicles, drivers of cars and trucks do not always act carefully.

Cyclists, even when wearing helmets, have little protection against cars or trucks. When motor vehicles collide with bicycles, the cyclist often suffers serious injuries or even death.

If you or a loved one was injured in a bicycle crash, you need attorneys who are dedicated to helping you through this difficult time. For years, people in McKinney and across Texas and the United States have placed their trust in Burress Law PLLC.
