Texas Bicycle Crash Attorney

From coastal swamps and piney woods to rolling plains and rugged hills, Texas offers some of the country’s best options for cycling. This isn’t a secret either, as approximately 4 million Texans ride bicycles every year. Nevertheless, Texas ranks a woeful #33 of bicycle friendly states based on current laws that simply are not protecting bicyclists.

Representation in Texas bicycle crash cases

From mountain biking in Big Bend to road racing in Pace Bend at Lake Travis, Texas bike lawyer Charlie Thomas has ridden his bicycle all over Texas. As such, he is familiar with both the passion held by the Texan cycling community and the challenges that face bicyclists on the roadways of Texas.  He represents cyclists in Houston, Dallas, Austin, El Paso, College Station, and everywhere else in the State.

Charlie's analysis of Texas bicycle laws can be found here and Austin bicycle laws here.

Having served as the president of the Texas A&M Cycling Team, where he led the team in appearances in the U.S. Collegiate National Championships, Charlie has spent thousands of hours riding his bicycle in Texas. Additionally, Charlie raced for a private Houston team in the Professional/1/2 category until law school, where studying took priority. As an attorney, Charlie now rides for recreation and focuses his practice on representing cyclists injured by motorists, unsafe road conditions, or defective cycling products.

One of Charlie’s most recent Texas cases involved a young surgeon training for a triathlon on his bicycle. While on a ride, the cyclist was struck from behind by a motorist who wasn’t paying attention to the road. The cyclist suffered severe injuries, including head trauma and numerous bone fractures. The cyclist retained Charlie, who obtained a significant recovery for the cyclist through the legal process. Meanwhile, intense medical treatment allowed the cyclist to make a full recovery.

In addition to his background of cycling throughout Texas, Charlie also incorporates his decade of professionally assembling and repairing bicycles into a comprehensive understanding of product failures and dangerous defects. Charlie passionately represents bicyclists against insurance companies, at-fault motorists, unsafe big-box retailers, and negligent manufacturers. He is proud to support Bike Law’s unique mission of client and cause advocacy.

Charlie is also a League Cycling Instructor of the League of American Bicyclists.

If you have been injured in a Texas bike accident, by a defective bicycle product, or because of an unsafe road condition and would like to discuss your case with a Texas bicycle accident attorney who is also an avid cyclist, Charlie welcomes your call for a free consultation. He may be reached at 844-531-754 0r charlie@bikelaw.com.
