On a nice day, many citizens of Texas enjoy going for motorcycle rides and prefer a motorcycle as their main form of transportation. Many motorcyclists are skilled in their riding abilities and wear protective headgear because they are aware of the dangers of riding a motorcycle. More here. Additionally, most motorcyclists abide by the rules of the road and do not make poor decisions. However, motorcycle accidents still occur, and in many cases, it is the fault of another driver. Due to the lack of protection that a motorcyclist does not have because they aren’t in an enclosed vehicle, many motorcyclists wind up severely injured in any type of accident. Other times, the accident may end fatally for the motorcyclist.
Many times, it is the driver of another vehicle that is at fault in a motorcycle accident. This can be due to the driver:
Failing to See the Motorcyclist
Driving While Intoxicated
Simply Not Paying Attention
In some cases, a motorcycle accident is not the fault of the motorcyclist or the driver. It can sometimes be the result of a defect in the motorcycle. When a defect in a motorcycle is found, it is usually recalled. However, a recall may happen once it is too late and harm was already done to someone. Sometimes a person may be the owner of a recalled motorcycle but they are unaware of the fact that it was recalled, and they wind up getting into an accident due to riding a defective motorcycle.
The consequences of a motorcycle accident can be catastrophic. A motorcyclist that gets into an accident can wind up with brain injuries, paralysis, bone fractures, and severe burns that require skin grafts and years of surgery to repair. Other times, a motorcycle accident can result in death. If you lost someone in a motorcycle accident due to the negligence of another or due to a motorcycle defect, contact our attorneys today.
