For it is your freedom from a car’s “cage” that makes you so vulnerable in an accident.

You need a personal injury attorney that will be your advocate when dealing with insurance adjusters and representing you in court. Walker Texas Lawyer is that lawyer. He is Houston’s motorcycle accident attorney, and he will be by your side the whole way. He regularly represents individuals that were injured in a car accident, truck accident or while riding their motorcycles. Contact Walker Texas Lawyer today to be your personal injury attorney.

Motorcycle Injuries

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported surprising motorcycle accident statistics in 2016. They stated that motorcyclist fatalities occurred nearly 28 times more frequently than passenger vehicle fatalities in accidents involving both cars and motorcycles. In fatal collisions between cars and motorcycles, the motorcycle rider or passenger dies in 98 percent of the time. While, the driver or passenger in the automobile loses his or her life in only 2 percent of the time. Additionally, there has been an increase in motorcycle crashes since 2007. As a result the rate of fatalities is increasing. This is a disturbing trend. However, If you are a motorcycle accident victim or if a loved one is, remember that you are not alone. Get in touch with the Houston motorcycle accident attorney, Walker Texas Lawyer, to receive the compensation you deserve.

Motorcycles Have the Same Rights

Motorcyclists have all the same rights and privileges as any motor vehicle driver on the road. This means motorcycles are entitled to their space on the road, no matter the size of their ride. Simply put, cars and trucks must “share the road” with motorcyclists.
 

Common Causes of Texas Motorcycle Accidents

No two motorcycle accidents are the same. That does not mean that there are no similarities between them. While many believe that the negligence of motorcycle riders is the cause of the motorcycle crash that is not always the case. In fact, it is often shown that the driver of the other vehicle is the primary cause of the accident.

The most common factors in motorcycle accidents include:

  • Failing to wear protective gear
  • Harassment and road rage
  • Road defects (potholes, broken asphalt)
  • Vehicle defects
  • Inexperienced riders or drivers
  • Speeding
  • Alcohol & drugs
  • Distractions (texting, talking on a cell phone, eating)
  • Weaving in and out of traffic
  • Not using a turn signal
  • Driving on the wrong side of the road
  • Driving on the wrong side of the road
  • Tailgating
  • Poor weather conditions
  • Over braking
  • Under-cornering
  • Unexpected obstacles

What should I do after a motorcycle crash?

Get medical help

Your first concern after a motorcycle accident should be medical attention for your injuries. A Motorcycle crash can cause severe injuries such as; road rash, spine injuries, brain injuries and more. You will want to seek medical care immediately for your health. However, seeking immediate medical attention will also to help in the claims process. That is, if injuries surface later the insurance company may assert that the injury did not occur as a result of the accident. As false as this argument may be for the insurance company to make, it happens all the time. Go and see your doctor!

File Your Insurance Claim

Make your insurance claim as soon as possible.  You need to attack the situation while accounts of the accident are fresh.  It is only common sense that as time goes by witnesses may not remember details of the accident. Also, you would be surprised how often evidence goes missing.  You will need a personal injury lawyer that knows how to handle accident investigations. James Walker is that personal injury attorney.

How Do I Deal with Insurance Companies After A Motorcycle Accident?

Insurance companies often act like they are your friend. Additionally, they want you to feel that they are there for you from day 1. That is simply not the case. Do not be fooled. They are not in the business of paying out claims. You simply cannot count on them to treat you fairly. They will try to make you look like you are to blame for the accident and thereby minimize your claim.

After a motorcycle accident, the only person you should trust is Houston’s motorcycle accident attorney, Walker Texas Lawyer. After your doctor has seen your injuries , you should call immediately.

Why Do I Need A Motorcycle Accident Attorney?

Motorcycle accident lawyers are key to getting the full compensation you deserve after a motorcycle crash. Often motorcycle accidents cause life impacting injuries or may even be fatal. If you have been in a motorcycle crash, you may already have a good idea of its cost. This includes the physical and emotional pain, expensive medical bills, lost wages and property damage.

It is important for you to hire a personal injury lawyer to uncover every factor in the accident. Determining who is at fault as well as, where financial responsibility lies is critical. Who is at fault can be a complex question. This can be due to differing opinions and assessments with the other driver, police, emergency responders, and insurance companies. Furthermore, it is complicated if there were equipment failures, poor road conditions, public vehicles, or obstacles involved.

You need an attorney that will investigate the accident and build a strong case. The insurance companies will want to settle as quickly as they can. They will not want to wait to discover that you have long-term medical and disability issues. Do not agree to any settlement without talking to an attorney.

An experienced motorcycle accident attorney can help you:

  • Understand your legal options
  • Conduct an investigation into the accident
  • Challenge the police report’s findings
  • Help prevent you from settling too soon
  • Ensure that your long-term medical, psychological and financial needs are identified
  • Fight for compensation
