The staff at our law firm got very excited yesterday. A number of us are keen runners, so we were excited to see the Phyllis Tilley Memorial Pedestrian Bridge installed over Trinity River yesterday – just a short distance from our office. Although the new pedestrian bridge won't officially open until August, it was still awesome to know that the Trinity Trails development has become a true success and provides a safe off-road environment for Fort Worth residents who want to go for a run or a bike ride.
As a Tarrant County personal injury and wrongful death attorney, I cannot understate the value of having an outdoor exercise environment on our doorstep. The proposed network of bicycle lanes which will be located throughout the downtown area will also provide Fort Worth cyclists with safer routes and hopefully prevent serious collisions with motor vehicles.
Whenever a pedestrian or bicyclist is involved in an accident with a car, truck or other vehicle, it is always the pedestrian or bicyclist who will suffer the worst injury. In many cases, the injuries will be fatal. Just because you yourself were not driving an automobile does not mean that you have no legal rights. If you have been hurt as a result of someone else's negligence, Texas law gives you every right to make a legitimate claim for compensation to cover your medical expenses, lost income and other crash-related costs.
