Bicycle accident in Texas leaves a man in critical condition

Auto versus pedestrian accidents often result in severe injury to the pedestrian. In a fight between a heavy car and a human body -- whether walking or on a bike, -- the car will normally win. The most recent bicycle accident to occur in Texas has left a man severely wounded.

A Texas man is fighting for his life after being struck by a small SUV while he was riding his bike. The accident with the cyclist was the byproduct of the Jeep being struck by another vehicle from behind, forcing the compact SUV into the cyclist. The bicycle accident caused the rider to be thrown from his bike into a ditch on the side of the road.

The cyclist, a 43-year-old male, was taken to a hospital at Fort Hood and has reportedly suffered critical injuries as a result of the collision. It is unknown if the driver of either vehicle was injured in the accident. Police have not indicated if any charges have been or will be filed against anyone involved in this incident.

Cyclists injured in a bicycle accident often suffer severe injuries that require long periods of time and extensive medical treatments to recover from, which can be costly. In this case, the cyclist maintains the right to pursue a personal injury claim against the driver deemed responsible for the collision. If either driver is found negligent in the cause of the crash, a court in Texas could find in favor of the cyclist, awarding him financial compensation to help recoup the monetary losses accrued and provide for his pain and suffering.
