What Makes Bicycle Accidents So Complicated?
If a driver crashed into your bicycle, you might think your case would be straightforward. Many legal cases involving bicycle accidents often turn out to be very complicated. Some of the reasons why include:
- The driver who caused your bicycle accident claims they didn’t do anything wrong.
- The at-fault driver claims you somehow caused the accident.
- The driver’s insurance company denies your bicycle accident claim.
The stakes are often very high when it comes to bicycle accidents. That’s because your accident claim could be worth thousands or potentially even millions of dollars. Insurance companies know this. That’s why they often do everything they can to reduce or deny your claim.
They don’t intimidate us. Attorney Aizar J. Karam Jr. has more than 24 years of legal experience, including extensive experience working with insurance companies. As a result, he knows how they think. He knows what strategies work. He can put his knowledge to work for you. If the insurance companies refuse to cooperate, he will not hesitate to file a bicycle accident lawsuit on your behalf.

That’s not a problem. We understand that an accident may have left you injured and that traveling may be difficult or impossible. We care about your well-being and comfort. So if you can’t come to our office, we will come to you. One of our lawyers can meet you at your home, in your hospital room or anywhere else that is convenient.
We’ll review the details of your case and ask you some questions. Then we can review your legal options and give you an idea about what to expect. We can also answer any questions that you have about your case.
How long will it take to resolve my case?
It depends on many factors, such as the complexity of your case and how much money is at stake. In general, a case may take anywhere between a few months to a year. If your case goes to trial, it can take even longer.
Insurance companies try to delay the resolution of a case as long as possible. They don’t want to pay you the compensation you deserve. They are hoping that the longer they delay your case, the more likely it will be that you will give up or accept a lower settlement offer. We will guide you through the process every step of the way.
Should I accept a settlement offer from the insurance company?
Soon after your accident, you may be contacted by the insurance company. They are offering you a settlement! It may not be for as much as you were hoping, but they are promising quick payment. This offer will fall far short of covering the damages you have suffered. The insurance company just wants to save money.
You should never agree to any settlement unless you have first discussed the offer with an experienced Texas personal injury lawyer. You can get a much better settlement when an insurance company knows you have a personal injury attorney willing to go to trial on your behalf.
