When it comes to motorcycles, we know that no matter how careful you are, you cannot control the choices of truck and car operators. Motorcycle accidents are more likely to be deadly than accidents involving only passenger cars. Motorcycles provide no protection from impact and motorcycle riders routinely are thrown from their bikes in a crash. It is usually the motorcycle rider who is killed in an accident or who suffers serious and life-changing injuries.
If you or a loved one were involved in a motorcycle accident, you may be able to take legal action against the driver who caused your crash.
Types of Motorcycle Accidents
There are many different ways that motorcycle accidents can arise. Typically, the main cause of a motorcycle accident is that of distracted driving by other vehicles on the road. Rear-end collisions to motorcyclists can cause much more severe damage than when this occurs with a vehicle of another kind. Sudden lane changes and U-turns by drivers of cars can occur suddenly and without warning or concern for a motorcyclist.
Our attorneys understand that passenger vehicles often view motorcyclists differently than they do other vehicles, and often times don’t respect the motorcycle’s position on the roadways. This can lead to a motorcycle accident that can result in serious injury, and even death.
Types of Injuries in Motorcycle Crashes
Because you are completely exposed on a motorcycle, you can suffer severe injuries to any part of your body in an accident. These are some types of injuries that Texas bikers often experience as the result of a motorcycle crash:
Broken bones; dislocations
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
Spinal cord injuries
Paralysis; quadriplegia; paraplegia
Internal organ damage and internal bleeding
Lacerations, road burn, scarring, and disfigurement
Why You Need an Attorney for Your Texas Motorcycle Accident Claim
Insurance companies will often routinely deny a motorcycle accident claim—partly because of bias and the preconceived notion that the biker is always at fault, and partly because it’s just the nature of the insurance business. Insurance companies take in premiums, and the less the pay out on claims, the more their profits.
An insurance adjuster will often tell you that you don’t need a lawyer, and while in theory this is correct, in practice it is a huge mistake to try to negotiate a settlement on your own. Most people have no idea the value of their case—and the adjuster will be quick to take advantage. As a motorcycle accident victim, you will probably not receive a fair settlement without a battle. You will need a skillful and aggressive attorney to make sure that you are adequately compensated for all of your accident-related damages.
An experienced personal injury attorney understands the full value of your economic and non-economic damages and has the resources, knowledge, and commitment to the best possible outcome for your case.
