Texas woman seriously hurt in bicycle accident

A young woman in Texas was seriously injured in an crash in September. According to a recent report, the victim was hurt in an auto versus bicycle accident in the Dallas area. The driver believed responsible was arrested and charged for the incident

It was a typical September day for the victim. The 26-year-old was riding her bike home on a route she takes nearly every day. She waited for her turn to go at an intersection but was hit by a vehicle operated by a driver who apparently failed to yield the right of way. The victim suffered a concussion and serious injuries to her neck and leg. She is expected to need therapy for at least several weeks during her recovery process.

The driver thought responsible for the crash was arrested shortly after the incident. He was charged with DUI and intoxication assault. Court dates regarding this matter have not been reported.

This bicycle accident is just one of the thousands of nonfatal auto-bicycle collisions that have occurred over the past five years in Dallas County alone. The city is trying to do more to educate cyclists and drivers in the hopes of bringing an end to these types of incidents. Bicyclists who are injured at the hands of negligent drivers may have legal recourse. In this particular case, the victim may pursue a personal injury claim in a Texas civil court against the individual believed responsible for the wreck. Monetary damages may be awarded for any current and future losses resulting from the accident, if litigation is successful.
