Understanding the Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents 

While motorcycles offer a sense of freedom and thrill, they also come with inherent risks due to their instability and lower visibility compared to cars and trucks. Operating them demands a higher degree of skill and coordination. Interestingly, most motorcycle accidents are not caused by the riders themselves. Despite motorcyclists being required to exercise extra caution on the roads, a substantial number of motorcycle accidents are due to distracted drivers who fail to notice the motorcyclist in time. 

Approximately a third of multi-vehicle motorcycle accidents occur when drivers make a left turn in front of an oncoming motorcycle, either because they didn't see it or misjudged its speed.   

The leading factors contributing to motorcycle accidents include:   

  • Cars sideswiping motorcycles during lane changes 
  • Cars turning left across the path of oncoming motorcycles 
  • Loose gravel on roadways 
  • Obstacles or debris on the road 
  • Adverse weather conditions 
  • Uneven road surfaces 
  • Wet road conditions 

In some instances, your motorcycle might collide with a vehicle that isn't directly responsible for the accident. Our diligent and persistent attorneys will meticulously examine the details of your case to ascertain if another vehicle's sudden swerve, brake, or other unexpected movement prompted surrounding vehicles to react, culminating in your accident. We are committed to holding all parties accountable for their roles in causing your injuries.   

Motorcycle Accidents Can Lead to Critical Injuries 

As per the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) data from 2021, approximately 8.6 million motorcycles were on the roads in the United States. The very nature of motorcycles, lacking the protective enclosure that cars provide, exposes riders to a higher risk of sustaining serious injuries or even death. 

According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA), a staggering 80% of all motorcycle accidents result in injury or death. This starkly contrasts car accidents, where only 20% of incidents lead to similar outcomes. NHTSA further estimates that motorcyclists are five times more likely than passenger vehicle occupants to get injured in a road accident. 

Motorcycle accidents frequently lead to severe injuries such as:   

  • Amputations 
  • Broken bones 
  • Cuts and bruises 
  • Disfigurement 
  • Internal bleeding 
  • Road rash 
  • Damage to internal organs 
  • Mild to severe traumatic brain injuries 
  • Neck, back, and spinal cord injuries 
  • Severed limbs 
  • Serious burns 

A significant number of riders never return to their bikes following an accident. The injuries sustained can be so severe that they impact the victims' ability to care for themselves or maintain employment. These life-altering consequences must be considered when calculating compensation claims. For a younger individual who becomes permanently disabled due to a motorcycle accident in Houston, the claims could potentially amount to thousands or even millions of dollars. 

The Role of a Houston Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Your Recovery 

In the aftermath of a severe accident like a motorcycle crash, your primary focus should be on recovery. Additional worries only add to stress, potentially hindering your healing process. This underscores the importance of promptly hiring a personal injury lawyer after the incident to alleviate these concerns. 

In a personal injury lawsuit, you'll be seeking just compensation for your medical bills, pain, suffering, and all other damages stemming from your motorcycle accident in Houston. While the initial step involves filing a claim with the at-fault driver's insurance company, this seemingly straightforward process can become convoluted. Insurance providers are typically reluctant to part with their profits, often offering less than what you rightfully deserve. 

A proficient and empathetic motorcycle accident attorney in Houston will meticulously analyze your case, investigate all the evidence, and craft a compelling narrative demonstrating why you're entitled to full financial restitution. We'll tirelessly work until your personal injury claim is resolved to your satisfaction.
