Bicycle Accidents in Texas
Every year, bicycle accidents claim the lives of nearly 80 people in the state of Texas. Hundreds of other people are left with severe and life-altering injuries. When victims suffer spinal cord injuries, back injuries, and traumatic brain injuries, they often require emergency surgery and long-term care. These and other serious injuries can be incredibly debilitating. To make matters even worse, many victims never fully recover from their injuries. Instead, they are left with permanently disabling conditions.
