Why You Need a Knowledgeable Motorcycle Attorney
There has been an increasing number of motorcyclists in the state of Texas. An unfortunate fact is that many of these registered, experienced bikers are not being treated with common courtesy on the road. Automobile drivers often neglect to give motorcyclists the amount of space they need for safe driving and can crowd them until they are entangled in a horrible accident. Alternatively, an automobile driver might not properly check their blind spots, leading to a severe collision.
While it is a terrible thing to be any driver in an accident, motorcyclists often suffer from the most significant injuries and pain. Even though automobile drivers are often the primary person at fault, negative stereotypes often cause those in court to blame the motorcyclist instead. You will need a knowledgeable lawyer who can powerfully defend your case against a negligent driver and their insurance company.
Leading Causes of Motorcycle Crashes
The causes of a motorcycle crash can often be blamed on the automobile driver, and there could be several reasons for why that driver was being irresponsible. Our talented lawyer is ready to scrutinize the details of your case to demonstrate how the opposing party lacked a duty of care for others on the road.
Some of the most typical causes for motorcycle crashes involve incidents in which the car drivers were:
- Checking their mobile phones
- Irresponsible in correctly checking their blind spots
- Driving recklessly or racing down the highway
- Refusing to obey traffic regulations, such as speeding limitations or yield signs
- Not signaling a lane change
- Pushing a motorcycle off the side of the road
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
While riding a motorcycle, you are unfortunately at more of a risk of suffering an injury if you get into an accident. You are able to protect yourself by wearing proper protective gear, like a motorcycle helmet which could save your life, and by riding defensively. Keeping aware of your surroundings and of potential hazards are essential to do when out on the road. However, you can't see or account for everything, and if you get into an accident, you may be injured. Here are some of the common motorcycle accident injuries you could suffer:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Back/Spinal cord injuries
- Road rash (scrapes or cuts)
- Bruises and burns
- Internal organ damage
- Broken or fractured bones
If you are injured, make sure you seek medical attention. Something like road rash may not seem like a big deal, but not properly treating it could lead to infections, permanent scarring, or worse. Even some more minor seeming injuries could lead to something more serious down the line if not properly treated.
Keeping Automobile Drivers Accountable
Motorcycle riders have the same rights to be on the road as all drivers. In fact, motorcyclists are known to be even more cautious in following regulations on account of their extensive training. You should not have to pay for another driver’s lack of awareness or care. Let our skilled motorcycle accident lawyer in San Angelo provide you with the dedicated support you need to recover compensation after an accident.
