What Will An Attorney Do For Your Motorcycle Accident Case?
Most motorcyclists will not have the resources necessary to obtain full compensation for their claim. However, a Houston motorcycle accident lawyer will be able to obtain all evidence necessary to prove liability. This includes any video or photo footage, statements from eyewitnesses, accident reports, and more. An attorney will also ensure that their client is evaluated by a trusted medical professional who will help assess the full extent but their losses.
Motorcycle collision cases can be very “reconstruction intensive,” meaning that often an expert needs to analyze the scene and vehicle damage to substantiate vehicle dynamics and establish fault for the collision. It is important to visit the scene early and to secure physical evidence and vehicles.
Motorcycle Accidents Can Cause Devastating Injuries
Motorcyclists are much more likely to sustain severe injuries in the event they are involved in an accident. Unfortunately, even when a motorcyclist is wearing a helmet, the impact of a vehicle can lead to significant damage. At Padilla & Rodriguez, LLP, our Houston motorcycle accident lawyers regularly help clients who have sustained the following:
- Spinal cord injuries (possible paralysis)
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Skull fractures and open head wounds
- Broken and dislocated bones
- Severe lacerations or road rash
- Amputation injuries
- Internal organ damage and internal bleeding
Data from the Texas Department of Transportation shows that there were thousands of motorcycle accidents reported across the state during the latest year of data available. Out of these incidents, 418 motorcyclists lost their lives, and more than 6,600 were injured. Unfortunately, many of these incidents were caused by the negligent actions of other drivers on the roadway, such as failing to yield, traffic law violations, speeding, distracted driving, and impaired driving.
Motorcycle collisions are common in high-traffic areas. Unfortunately, aggressive motor vehicle drivers do not watch out for motorcyclists. Motorcycle collisions often involve the rider having to “lay down the bike,” or being ejected many feet down the roadway. Once the collision occurs, the circumstance is sometimes aggravated by the fact that concrete jersey barriers and other roadway devices can be particularly dangerous to a motorcyclist after the collision, compounding the injuries.
In addition, even motorcycle collisions not involving another vehicle can be someone else’s fault. For example, dangerous unmarked drop-offs between lanes in dark construction zones may be the fault of the contractor working on the roadway.
