Austin Bicycle Accident Lawyer
Tyler Bike Injury Lawyer
Bicycles are rapidly gaining popularity among adults in many parts of Texas, including Greater Austin and Tyler, and nothing compares to a bike for children on the move. Sadly, as the number of bicycles on our streets and roads increases, so do the number of accidents. When a car-bicycle collision occurs, the injuries to the vulnerable rider are often catastrophic.
After a bicycle accident that causes serious injuries, your focus must be on your own or your loved one’s medical treatment. At Colley & Colley, LLP, we will focus on investigating causes of the accident and thoroughly assessing all sources of financial recovery for you — including insurance coverage to address your medical expenses, lost wages and other damages.
Establishing Driver Negligence in Bicycle Accident Cases
Both attorneys at our firm have many years of experience handling a wide range of roadway accident claims, including cases arising from bike and pedestrian injuries and those resulting in wrongful death. We are knowledgeable in how to prove driver negligence after a bicycle accident, pursuing potential causes such as:
- Drunk driving or distracted driving
- Turning directly in front of a bicyclist
- Failing to stop, yield or obey other traffic laws
- Pulling into or out of traffic without looking both ways
At-fault drivers and insurance adjusters commonly argue that it was impossible to see the bicycle. We have overcome this claim in a range of motor vehicle accident cases, obtaining many sizable verdicts and settlements for our injured clients.
A Caring, Effective Resource for You in Difficult Times

We recognize that if you are coping with injuries to a child or a tragic death in your family, it may seem impossible to sort out insurance issues and make sound decisions about taking legal action.
