Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Sadly, many motorcycle accidents are preventable. While there is a common misconception that most motorcycle collisions are the fault of the motorcyclist, the fact remains that many, many accidents are caused by the negligence or reckless actions of another motorist. Our Houston personal injury attorneys know how to prove liability and get you the compensation you deserve.
Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Driving while impaired/intoxicated
- Failure to yield the right-of-way
- Improper lane changes
- Failure to check blind spots
- Unsafe turns
- Fatigued driving
- Unsafe road conditions
- Defective motorcycle parts
- Faulty motorcycle safety equipment
Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Accidents
Because motorcycles lack the standard safety features of other motor vehicles, such as seatbelts and airbags, riders and their passengers often sustain severe, even life-threatening injuries in a crash.
Some common motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Accidental amputation
- Broken bones
- Severe cuts and lacerations
- Severe burns and road rash
Seeking Fair Compensation for Your Damages
As a result of the catastrophic nature of most motorcycle accident injuries, victims and their loved ones may find themselves facing numerous challenges. Victims will typically require extensive emergency medical treatment, as well as ongoing care and rehabilitation. They may be unable to return to work, either temporarily or permanently, adding additional financial stress to an already difficult situation. And, of course, this does not even take into account the immense physical pain and emotional scarring such injuries can leave behind.
At The Ammons Law Firm, our Houston motorcycle accident lawyers seek full and fair compensation for damages such as:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Disability and disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Wrongful death compensation
- Punitive damages
We understand that your damages do not stop at the hospital. Because of this, we strive to recover the maximum compensation our clients are owed, both for their immediate costs and their future needs.
