I Understand Riding Is a Passion
Bicycling and motorcycling are popular among Texans, both for recreation and transportation. Although not all motorists recognize it, both types of riders have legitimate rights on the road. In fact, their rights on the road are nearly identical to those of motorized vehicle drivers.
It is unfortunate then that each year hundreds of motorcyclists and bicyclists are injured on Texas roadways. Often, drivers will claim they “didn’t see” the rider, when a more accurate description might be that they “didn’t take care to see” the rider instead.
At Kerry H. Collins, P.C., our skilled motorcycle and bicycle accident attorney works to protect the rights of bicyclists and motorcyclists and secure recoveries for them when they are injured due to the negligence of motorists.

Vulnerable, but You Have Rights
Unlike drivers of cars, trucks or semis who are protected by thousands of pounds of metal and rubber, motorcyclists and bicyclists often have at best their helmets and the clothes on their backs. They are vulnerable — but they have no fewer legal rights to the road.
“I’m a proud trial lawyer, because fighting giants never goes out of style.” — Attorney Kerry H. Collins
Newspaper obituaries, hospital ICUs and rehabilitation facilities are common destinations for riders when motorists are negligent in their duties to all users of Texas roadways. As two-wheeled transportation becomes a popular alternative to driving autos in crowded cities, I will see more conflicts between riders and drivers.
