A Texas bicycle accident attorney who will work with you
What makes bicycle accident cases even more complicated is the driver who caused the accident will often deny any wrongdoing. Even if they do admit it, their insurance company may try to limit your compensation. Instead of working with victims of bicycle accidents to make sure they are fairly compensated, most insurance companies seem more concerned with paying people as little money as possible.
That’s why we investigate your bicycle accident to find out what really happened. Our legal team knows where to look for evidence of negligence. We review all relevant documentation, identify and interview witnesses and consult with experts. We build a strong case that shows the negligence of another led to the accident that left you injured.
When insurance companies see the work we have put into a case and that we are prepared to fight them in court, they often realize it is in their own best interests to negotiate. But we are only interested in a resolution of your case that meets your needs. If the insurance company had their way, you would be left paying for some of the damages you suffered.
That's not right. Take a stand. Hold negligent people responsible for their actions. Contact a Galveston bicycle accident lawyer at the Law Offices of Gene S. Hagood. Call (800) 632-9404 today. We're on your side. Your case matters.
