Bicycle accident in Texas severely injures rider

Texas has a pretty large cyclist community. When something happens to one of them, they all come together to seek justice and remind the public to safely share the road. In a recent training ride for a public event, one cyclist was involved in a bicycle accident with a vehicle, leaving him severely injured.

The 23-year-old victim of this accident was out on a training ride with a group of other cyclists, all preparing for the MS 150. At approximately 40 miles into their ride, the victim, who was at the back of the group, was struck by a vehicle which sent him flying into the air. He was taken to a medical facility in Galveston for treatment of his injuries, which included a broken vertebrae, brain bleed, teeth missing, road rash across his body and the medical need to remove part of his calf muscle. With such extensive injuries, he is currently still recovering in the hospital.

The investigation into this accident is said to be continuing. At this point, the driver involved in the collision has not been cited for this accident. The official cause of the incident has yet to be released to the public.

A bicycle accident tends to end in severe injury or death to the cyclist. While this man will thankfully recover from his injuries, it will take time and come at a significant cost. Medical care and rehabilitation services are a necessary expense in these cases, and costs can add up very quickly. The victim, if he chooses, could file a personal injury claim against the driver in an effort to recoup the financial losses and pain and suffering he has endured. A Texas civil court, if the driver is found liable for this incident, could award the victim monetary restitution for the damages he has suffered.
