Motorcycle Accident Attorneys in Dallas, Tyler and East Texas
Compensating bikers injured by negligence and reckless behavior
Motorcycles are appealing in many ways. They are fast, flashy and loud, and they allow drivers to truly feel the freedom of the open road. But the very speed, openness and maneuverability of motorcycles that attract motorists are the aspects that create the most risk.
Eastern Texas has a higher propensity for fatal motorcycle accidents than the rest of the state, according to the 2009 results of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's data. Whether that is due to Texas's large population of drivers or roadway conditions, the facts show that East Texas bikers and their families need an experienced attorney to help them obtain the compensation needed to cover the costs of serious and fatal motorcycle accidents. Browning & Hernandez is here to help.
Risk and liability in motorcycle wrecks
Many passenger vehicle drivers do not look for motorcycles when turning or changing lanes, and bikes' nimble handling can easily land motorcycles in vehicle blind spots. And the lack of structural protection around the driver means that the body bears the full impact of any collision, resulting in a range of injuries, including:
The severity of these injuries can result in major hospitalization, surgery and physical rehabilitation costs and in extreme conditions, funeral expenses. If this accident was the result of another's reckless driving, you are entitled to compensation for these expenses.
Determining who is at fault
Motorcyclists themselves are often blamed for their accidents. While it is true that speeding, weaving and aggressive driving can contribute to motorcycle wrecks, drivers of passenger vehicles and other parties are often liable. Common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
A critical factor of winning compensation is the determination of who or what caused your accident. Our law firm has the experience to reveal the facts of your case and hold the responsible parties accountable.
