Bicycles are a tried and true method of transportation for children and teens. Unfortunately, individuals who utilize bicycles are not without risk of being injured in automobile accidents. Sadly, thousands of victims are injured in bicycle accidents across Texas annually.
When teens are injured in automobile accidents, they are often forced to undergo extensive medical treatment. These individuals are often too young to truly understand the life-altering impact of a motor vehicle collision. Teens are often left to deal with excruciating pain and suffering from their injuries.
