PEDESTRIAN & BICYCLE ACCIDENTS
Representing Walkers, Joggers, and Bicyclists
Downtown San Antonio is a tourist area often bustling with pedestrians. Strollers enjoy the sights and sounds of the River Walk while businesspeople hurry to and from their office buildings. Unfortunately, negligent motorists also abound.
At The Law Office of Thomas C. Hall, P.C., I represent pedestrians injured by the carelessness or recklessness of others. I have more than three decades of experience pursuing full and fair compensation for injury victims throughout Texas. You can count on me to provide the personal and professional advocacy you deserve.
Those Hit by a Car Often Suffer Head Injuries or Wrongful Death
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that in 2010 alone, 4,280 pedestrians were killed and an estimated 70,000 were injured in collisions across the country. This equals approximately one pedestrian death every two minutes and one injury every eight minutes. Such injuries often include:
Back injuries such as herniated or ruptured disks
Neck and head injuries
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
Spinal cord injuries
Paraplegia or quadriplegia
Bicyclists Have Rights on the Road, Too
Many car and truck drivers ignore the rights of bicyclists and fail to watch for them on the roads. NHTSA data on bicycle accidents shows that 677 cyclists were killed and another 48,000 suffered injuries in motor vehicle accidents nationwide in 2011. The majority of these accidents occurred in urban areas.
My law firm has a detailed knowledge of the legal rights of bicyclists in Texas and I take prompt action to hold careless and reckless drivers accountable for the harm they cause.
