Bicyclists, especially when involved in an accident with a car, are particularly vulnerable to serious injuries such as: brain injury, head trauma, broken bones and fractures, lacerations and even spinal cord injury.
Although some states conclude that the driver is always at fault in a car vs. bike accident, Texas is a little different. In El Paso the fault lands on the negligent party and that party is responsible for all of the damages. According to Texas law, "everyone is responsible, not only for the result of his or her willful acts, but also for an injury occasioned to another by his or her want of ordinary care or skill in the management of his or her property or person".
