The Attorney That Rocks: Standing Up For Bikers In Austin
Austin is great for riding a bike. The city installed trails and bike lanes to encourage biking around town for transportation or recreation. Except that hardly a week goes by when you don’t hear about a car or truck hitting a bicyclist. If you have suffered injuries or lost a loved one in such an incident, you have the right to seek money for your losses.
Turn to David Komie – the attorney that rocks. David isn’t your typical lawyer. He has dreadlocks and is involved in the rock scene. But he’s good at what he does and has recovered a ton of money for people injured in bike accidents throughout Austin. He and his brother Matthew Kotzen take dangerous drivers and insurance companies to court and fight for victims’ and their right to recover what they need.
Some Drivers Treat Cyclists Like Crap
As an avid cyclist himself, David is all too familiar with how negligent some drivers are. As bike accident lawyers, he and Matthew have handled hundreds to thousands – yes, thousands – of bike and other accident claims involving:
- Drunk or drugged driving
- Left turns
- Texting while driving
- Failure to yield
- Reckless driving
Dooring is a great example of when drivers do not pay attention to cyclists. A driver opens their car door into an oncoming bicyclist and, bam, the biker is seriously injured. Any of these examples can result in serious injuries and crazy-expensive medical bills.
Cyclists Bear The Brunt In An Accident
Like motorcycle riders, bike riders do not have the safety of a two-ton steel cage to surround them. (Maybe that’s what gives so many semi and truck drivers the confidence to act like jerks.) As a result, the damages inflicted on cyclists in car crashes cannot be understated.
Your physical injuries and financial struggle can contribute to financial and emotional struggles that affect all areas of your life. If you lost a loved one, your losses can take a massive toll on your life now and in the future.
Talk To A Lawyer Who Gets It
You have nothing to lose by calling. David and Matthew work on a contingency fee basis, which means you pay nothing unless they recover money for you.
