Motorcyclists often suffer extremely serious injuries after a traffic accident. If a motorcycle is hit by a car or a truck, then they are going to be knocked off their bike and on to the roadway. Their bodies suffer enormous trauma as all the protection they have is the clothes on their backs and (hopefully) their helmet. Unfortunately, many motorcyclists choose not to wear a helmet. While this is their legal right in Texas, it does increase the likelihood that they will suffer head trauma which could result in long-term or permanent brain damage.
If you or someone you love was injured in a Dallas motorcycle accident, then it is important that you consult with a board certified Dallas personal injury lawyer who is experienced in handling motorcycle crash injury and death claims. Only with an experienced attorney on your side can you hope to achieve full justice and recover the full and fair compensation you deserve from the at-fault driver’s auto insurance company.
Why Injured Motorcyclists Deserve an Expert Attorney
Throughout Texas, there were 6,131 serious injuries and 467 deaths suffered by motorcycle operators and passengers in 2012 according to TxDOT. In my experience as a Dallas motorcycle injury attorney, I know that the vast majority of auto accidents involving motorcyclists were the fault of the driver of the other vehicle involved in the collision. Drivers of cars and trucks rarely watch out for motorcyclists, and are constantly changing lanes or making a turn in the path of a motorcyclist they have neglected to look out for.
Despite the fact that motorcyclists are rarely the ones at fault, they often have to be rushed to hospital from the crash scene, which means they do not get to give their side of the story to the investigating officer. As a result, winning fair compensation can be difficult for an injured motorcyclist in Dallas, but it is not impossible provided you have a board certified personal injury attorney on your side.
