Dallas Lawyers representing Pedestrians and Bicyclists Hit by Cars or Trucks
Many people in the Dallas area love to walk or ride their bikes on a nice day such at White Rock Lake or Katy Trail. Sometimes, when you are enjoying your jog, you could be crossing a cross-walk and a motorist is not paying attention and you are hit because the driver failed to yield the right of way to the pedestrian. This can cause serious injuries or death if this happens and you may be entitled to money damages for your broken bones or head injuries you sustained against the negligent party. Further, the law provides that if a person was a fault, you may seek recovery for your pain and suffering, lost wages, permanent injuries and all past, present and future medical bills.
