Establishing Liability in an Odessa Bicycle Accident

In order to successfully pursue a bicycle accident claim in Odessa, your bike accident attorney must be able to prove that the negligent driver bears liability for your accident-related losses. To establish liability, your case must contain the following elements:

  • The driver owed you a duty of care
  • The driver violated this duty of care by acting negligently behind the wheel
  • This negligence directly caused your accident
  • The accident caused you to suffer economic and non-economic damages.

Every driver in Texas owes others on the road a legal responsibility to act reasonably and avoid causing an accident. If the driver fails to abide by traffic laws or engages in distractions such as texting and driving, they likely violated their duty of care. If a driver’s breach of duty caused them to collide with a cyclist, the victim might have grounds to pursue a bicycle accident claim against the liable party.

Damages You May Be Eligible to Collect Through a Bicycle Accident Claim

Bicycle accident injuries are often severe and may cause victims to suffer significant physical, emotional, and financial challenges. Bike accident victims may be forced to endure surgeries, extended hospital stays, and time off of work. If you have suffered damages due to a negligent driver’s careless actions, you may be eligible to collect compensation for the following losses:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and earning potential
  • Significant disfigurement or disability
  • Emotional trauma
  • Medical devices and prescriptions
  • Loss of enjoyment in life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Wrongful death

The insurance company may contact you shortly after your accident about a settlement offer. While many Texans assume the insurance company has their best interests in mind, this is not always the case. Often, insurance companies attempt to offer bicycle accident victims the lowest amount possible for their injuries and other damages. Fortunately, an experienced bicycle accident attorney can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf and fight for the total value of your claim.
