Many Dallas residents use bicycles to get to and from work and school, and as a healthy form of recreation. Children use bicycles as their main form of transportation and can often be seen in residential neighborhoods around the area. Unfortunately, bicyclists are in terrible danger of injury when they share the road with inattentive drivers. Serious and deadly bicycle accidents are far too common, and when a child is injured, the situation is particularly heartbreaking. Any bicycle accident case that results in an injury demands legal representation from a personal injury lawyer to assist in the claim for compensation for damages.
When a bicyclist is injured after being hit by a car, the injuries can be catastrophic. It is common for the bicyclist to become airborne and land on their back, head or side. The injuries sustained can be devastating, including traumatic brain injuries and deadly spinal injuries resulting in paralysis. Other injuries can be less severe, but whatever the case, you can be assured that you are represented by an aggressive lawyer when you contact the firm.
Information for Victims
At Zinda Law Group PLLC, we have decided to lend our abilities to the protection of innocent victims in bicycle accident cases and other personal injury claims. The years of hard-hitting negotiations and litigation have led to an aggressive and relentless approach to each case we take on. An understanding of the defense “playbook” is an advantage for the client, as outflanking efforts to reduce claim amounts is vital in any personal injury case.
Never accept a settlement offered prior to discussing your case with an attorney from our firm. You are likely being offered a settlement amount that is far lower than you could expect when you have strong legal representation. Don’t allow yourself to fall into the trap of signing off on such settlements, as if you or your loved one require further medical treatment in the future, you will have signed away your opportunities for making a higher claim for damages. Our Dallas personal injury attorneys will advise you what to expect, how the case will proceed and what to expect in your accident claim.
