Why You Need a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to severe injuries in an accident, which can mean a lengthy and costly recovery. To ensure you recover the compensation you need for you and your family will require critical evidence of the at-fault party’s liability. While you focus on your health, an attorney will investigate your accident and gather photos, video footage, police reports, eyewitness statements, medical records, and more to hold the at-fault party accountable.
Their insurance company will look for ways to shift the blame on you. If they are successful, your compensation can be drastically reduced. An attorney will be aware of possible tactics and how to negotiate for full and fair compensation.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Katy
Many different situations can lead to a motorcycle accident, but here are the most common causes:
Texting and driving
Drifting into other lanes
Abrupt lane changes
Failure to inspect and maintain motorcycle
Dangerous road or weather conditions
Failing to use headlights
Driving while intoxicated
Driving without proper training or licenses
Failure to use safety equipment, such as reflective materials, a helmet, and a face shield
These collisions often result in potentially life-threatening injuries. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are 35 times more likely to be killed in an accident than those in passenger vehicles.
Motorcycle Accident Compensation
The following types of compensation are available to motorcyclists injured in preventable accidents caused by another party’s negligence:
Medical Expenses: Current and future medical costs, including hospitalizations, surgeries, doctor visits, rehabilitation, and any other necessary medical care.
Lost Wages: Current and future lost income while recovering. If you cannot earn the same amount of income as before the accident, you may be able to claim diminished earning capacity.
Pain and Suffering: Compensation for physical and mental pain, including emotional distress.
Disability: If you suffer a permanent disability (e.g., partial or complete paralysis)
Property Damage: For the cost of repairing or replacing your motorcycle.
Loss of Consortium: Compensation for a spouse’s loss of companionship, affection, or sexual relations.
Tragically, many riders do not survive collisions. If that were to happen, surviving family members can pursue a wrongful death claim to recover compensation for funeral and burial expenses, lost income, and more.
