Motorcycle Turned in Front of Car
This is a common cause of motorcycle crashes. A motorcycle is in the path of a car that makes a left-hand turn. This could happen if the motorcycle is speeding through an intersection or trying to pass it. The motorcyclist is usually not noticed by the driver as they turn. This can lead to severe injuries for the motorcyclist.
The accident is generally caused by the car driver who made the turn. However, if you’re a motorcyclist injured in an accident where a car made a left turn, your insurance company might try to place some blame on you. An experienced attorney can help you find the facts and get the compensation you deserve.
Sometimes, a motorbike is rear-ended by a car in an accident. This can be extremely dangerous because the motorcyclist is unprotected and cannot take evasive actions or prepare for impact. The motorcyclist can either be thrown off the bike or pinned under the vehicle. This could cause severe or even fatal injuries.
An experienced attorney could help you if you were injured in a motorcycle accident. These injuries can take time to heal and may require long-term care. An attorney can help determine the cost of your medical treatment and get you the maximum compensation.
Sometimes, a distracted or speeding driver can force a motorcycle off the road. This can lead to the motorcyclist hitting a guardrail or another object along the road. The motorcyclist may also fall off their bike and slip on the ground. Motorcyclists can sustain severe injuries in either case.
These cases are often challenging to prove. The driver can leave the scene and not be found. It can be challenging to prove negligence even if the driver stops. Contact an experienced attorney if you have been hit by another vehicle. It is essential to gather evidence as quickly as possible and interview witnesses. An attorney will then be able to advise you about your legal options.
Motorcycles are not as visible on the roads as other vehicles. They are harder to spot if the truck driver is distracted. Distracted driving refers to engaging in activities that distract you from the road. Texting, changing radio stations, and eating are all examples of distracted driving. The chances of a crash are increased if a driver doesn’t look at the road for more than a few seconds. The injuries that can result from hitting a motorcycle are pretty severe.
An experienced attorney is necessary if you have been hurt in a motorcycle accident due to a distracted driver. Tracey & Fox lawyers know the signs to look out for to prove that a driver was distracted. They know how to get their clients the financial compensation that they deserve for their injuries.
Every driver is aware that there are many hazards on the road. Potholes, wet pavements, uneven surfaces, railroad tracks, and other hazards are just a few examples. These hazards are more dangerous for motorcycles than for cars. A motorcycle is smaller and more stable than a car, so that a hazard could cause a motorcyclist’s crash and injury.
A road hazard can cause a motorcycle accident. Can a motorcyclist get financial compensation? It depends. It all depends. If debris fell from a truck, a private person or business could be held responsible.
Driving impaired by alcohol or drugs can cause drivers to lose their awareness of the road, make poor decisions, and respond slower. They may not be able to avoid a collision even if they spot a motorcycle nearby. This can seriously injure motorcyclists. This can lead to severe injuries for motorcyclists.
One of our lawyers can assist you if you have been injured in a motorcycle accident that a drunken or drugged driver caused. Our attorneys will review police reports and interview witnesses to determine if the driver was impaired. We will then fight for financial compensation to cover your injuries.
This is a severe injury that can often occur in motorcycle accidents. This can occur when a motorcyclist is struck directly by a truck or car or thrown off a bike onto the pavement. The impact forces the brain into the skull and causes it to become bruised, bleeding, or swollen. Although a helmet can significantly reduce the severity of the injury, brain injury can still happen.
This injury is called traumatic brain injury (TBI) and can cause severe and long-lasting damage. TBI can cause a person to have impaired speech, thinking, and motor skills. A person with a TBI may have a change of personality. It is possible to experience problems with balance, walking, and weakness. TBI can require rehabilitation and long-term care, which can prove costly. We can help you get the compensation you and your family deserve for your accident.
Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal injury is another serious injury that can be sustained in motorcycle accidents. These injuries can happen when a motorcyclist gets hit or thrown off the bike. The effects of damage to the spinal cord, which contains nerves that connect to all body parts, can be severe. Spinal cord injuries may cause paralysis, pain, numbness, breathing difficulties, or paralysis.
Spinal cord injuries can be complicated to treat. These injuries can require surgery, hospitalization, and physical therapy. Some people may require long-term care or home modifications. It can be costly to pay for care for someone who has suffered a spinal injury. We are here to help you every step of your way.
Broken bones are common after a collision with a truck or car or when a biker is thrown off a motorcycle. Broken bones can occur in motorcycle accidents.
Broken bones are usually not permanent, but they can limit mobility for a while. Motorcyclists with broken bones cannot participate in everyday activities and may be unable to return to work for several weeks or even months. Sometimes physical therapy is also necessary. Broken bones can lead to permanent disability in some cases.
Motorcyclists instinctively try to stop falling when they know it. This condition is known as “biker’s elbow.” The brachial plexus, a network nerve located in the shoulder and upper arm, is damaged by the impact force. These nerves transmit signals to the brain that control arm movements. This type of injury can result in you being unable to raise your arm or move your fingers.
Physical therapy and medical treatment can help restore movement. Motorcyclists will need to restrain their activities until the condition is resolved. There may be permanent nerve damage in some cases.
Road rash is a widespread injury in motorcycle accidents. Road rash occurs when a motorcyclist is thrown off their bike or dragged along by it. It can cause multiple scrapes or bruises, which can be very painful. Sometimes, the injury can become so severe that hospitalization may be necessary.
Most cases of minor road rash heal quickly. Motorcyclists may experience limited mobility and sometimes even be unable or unable to work. Sometimes, motorcyclists are left with severe road rash that causes permanent scarring or disfigurement.
People who are involved in motorcyclist accidents often sustain a leg injury. On impact with a vehicle or the ground, bones can be fractured in the legs, knees, and feet. The leg could also damage the muscles, ligaments, and nerves. Sometimes, the leg may be crushed between the bike and the pavement.
Leg injuries can cause severe injury and may affect one’s ability or ability to walk. Motorcyclists can take many years before they can fully heal and regain the full functionality of their legs. Physical therapy and surgery may be required. Motorcyclists who have suffered a leg injury can be prevented from working for several months. A severe leg injury may result in the motorcyclist being unable to perform any physical labor.
Motorcyclists riding on roads can be protected by wearing the right gear. Protect your head with a Department of Transportation (DOT-approved) helmet. This includes gloves, a jacket with long sleeves, pants, and boots with non-skid soles.
It would help if you practiced proper braking. It takes practice to master the art of braking—practice in a parking garage or on a side street.
To obtain a Texas motorcycle license, you must complete an introductory motorcycle safety course. However, it’s a good idea to take the advanced course to be prepared for any situation you might face while riding.
Insurance Companies and Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcyclists are often criticized for having a bad reputation. Many people who don’t ride often view motorcyclists as reckless and irresponsible. Insurance companies are no exception. Insurance companies are no different. They believe that the motorcyclist is responsible for the accident.
Most motorcyclists are responsible. They follow the rules of the road. Insurance companies use false stereotypes to reduce settlements. We gather all facts necessary to prove the negligence of the other driver. These facts help our clients get the financial compensation that they are due.
