Austin has been named one of the best cities in the country for bicyclists time and time again. Whether you’re enjoying the scenery on the Barton Creek Greenbelt or zipping along the Veloway, anticipate some gorgeous sights along the way.
However, cycling enthusiasts often highlight the fact that there are significant challenges and dangers for bicycles on Austin’s roads. From a lack of bike lanes on some streets to legal parking for cars in existing bike lanes, cyclists must depend on observant and cautious drivers to keep themselves safe. But what do you do when a driver is hostile toward you or worse — injures you in a collision, an open door, or a hit and run?
The team at Melendez Law Firm wants bicyclists to enjoy the beautiful city of Austin without being afraid. If you are ever hurt in a collision with a motorist, we want to help make it right. We will hold drivers who fail to share the road accountable, and ensure that you receive the justice you deserve.
