Any car accident can be devastating; however, motorcycle accidents tend to be even more dangerous. Motorcycles offer little regard to passenger safety and protection to be much smaller and lighter than the vehicles with which they collide. This dangerous combination means that motorcyclists are considerably more likely to suffer traumatic injuries or even lose their lives in the event collision.
Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents regularly occur because automobile drivers are not vigilant in maintaining a lookout for motorcycles, despite the many safety precautions taken by motorcyclists when driving.
There are many different factors that can contribute to a motorcycle accident and it can be difficult to correctly discern the most direct causes without a cautious investigation. A close examination may reveal that one or more of the following risk factors were involved:
- Road defects
- Motorcycle defects or faults
- Negligent or reckless drivers
- Intoxicated drivers
- Distracted drivers
- Aggressive driving
The injuries may leave the person permanently disabled even after corrective surgery. Therefore, the true value of a claim from a motorcycle accident can only be assessed after a physician has established a firm prognosis. The State of Texas provides in most, but not all cases, a two-year period of time in which to file a lawsuit on a personal injury claim.
We are passionate and committed to helping injured motorcyclists in their fight against those who negligence caused them an accident.
