According to data form the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), nearly 60,000 people were injured in pedestrian wrecks in 2009.  More than 50,000 people were injured in bicycle wrecks that same year.

 Most pedestrian and bicycle wrecks are entirely preventable.  All too frequently, drivers are distracted and choose not to exercise care.  Common examples of driver negligence that may cause pedestrians or bicycle wrecks include:


 Distracted driving (e.g., texting or improper cellphone use)

  • Speeding
  • Failure to yield
  • Running a red light
  • Running a stop sign
  • Unsafe turns


If you or a family member has been injured in a pedestrian or bicycle wreck, contact The Law Office of H. Grady Chandler, P.C. in Garland, Texas.  We have represented many car wreck victims and have a proven record of results in cases involving negligent drivers. 
Attorney Grady Chandler has been board certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 1992.

Get the Vigorous Representation You Deserve

 Personal injury claims involving pedestrian and bicycle wrecks can be highly complex.  Even if the driver was clearly at fault, there are a number of ways an experienced insurance defense attorney may attempt to deny liability or minimize your injuries.

An insurance defense attorney may argue that you suddenly darted out in front of a vehicle or argue that your injuries are not as severe as you claim.  There are a variety of ways that the defense may attempt to deny your right to full and fair compensation.

Our job is to protect your rights and vigorously pursue full compensation on your behalf.  To do so, we take time to properly investigate the cause of wrecks and prepare each case for the possibility of trial.  By preparing cases for trial, we demonstrate to the insurance company that we mean business and we are prepared to fight for our clients in the courtroom if necessary.  We believe strongly that our through case management and willingness to take cases to trial, when necessary, is a decided advantage of our valued clients.
