The Devastating Impact Of Bicycle And Pedestrian Collisions
Biking and walking offer many health benefits. However, pedestrians and bikers know that along with the good they do for their health and the environment, they also face the dangers of reckless and negligent drivers who fail to grant them the courtesy they deserve on the road. The results are often life-threatening injuries.
At Ivey Law Firm, P.C., we understand the consequences Houston families face when a loved one who is walking or biking is struck by a motor vehicle. The damage a car or truck can do to an unprotected body can result in lengthy hospital stays, numerous surgical procedures, painful physical therapy and a lifetime of struggle. In the worst case, the victim will not survive the accident.
