Austin Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Award-Winning Representation for Texas Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle fatalities comprised a surprisingly high percentage of all traffic fatalities in Texas, especially when considering that there are only a little over 364,000 motorcycles and scooters registered in a state of nearly 30 million people. If you or a loved one has been the victim in a motorcycle accident, it is important that you seek legal counsel immediately. Our Austin motorcycle accident lawyer can fight for your rights against insurance companies to make sure you get the full and fair compensation you deserve.
Motorcyclists Are Not Always Protected
Even when there are laws in place to protect motorcyclists, accidents still occur. These usually happen because motorists are negligent in keeping an eye out for motorcyclists, especially when changing lanes or at night. The recovery from a motorcycle accident can be long and strenuous, and you are entitled to compensation for your injuries. Your spouse may even be entitled to compensation due to loss of support.
Our firm can help you build a case to recover:
- Medical costs
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Loss of earning potential
- Post-traumatic stress
Insurance companies often automatically offer to settle with the lowest amount possible. They are depending on your need to settle the claim right away and you should always watch out for this tactic. However, your injuries may become compounded and progressively worse as time goes on. While insurance company is obligated to anticipate this, they often try to ignore it to protect their bottom line. Let our motorcycle accident lawyer in Austin protect your interests.
What is the Leading Cause of Motorcycle Accidents?
According to motorcycle crash statistics, there are several common causes of motorcycle accidents:
- Cars making left-hand turns and failing to yield to oncoming motorcyclists
- Lane splitting
- Excessive speed and alcohol use
- Hazardous road conditions including potholes, poor weather, debris, animals, etc.
In general, motorcycle accident fault statistics indicate that 75% of motorcycle accidents involve another motor vehicle; many of these accidents are a result of driver error rather than motorcyclist error. The remaining 25% of motorcycle accidents are single-vehicle accidents caused by motorcyclist error or road hazards. Contrary to popular belief, motorcyclists are not automatically at fault for collisions.
