Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
In fatal collisions between cars and motorcycles, the motorcycle rider or passenger dies in 98 percent of cases, while the driver or passenger in the automobile loses his or her life in only 2 percent of such accidents. This disparity constitutes a great injustice in light of the fact that other research has shown that drivers are at fault for two out of every three crashes between cars and motorcycles.
Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Changing lanes without looking for motorcyclists
- Driving too fast for conditions or following too closely
- Making a left-hand turn into the path of a motorcyclist
- Texting while driving or talking on a cell phone
Motorcyclists are also far more likely to suffer serious injuries or death in an accident. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, in one year there were 5,740 motorcycle accidents resulting in catastrophic injury, in addition to 2,078 accidents resulting in minor injuries. Furthermore, injuries occur in only 37 percent of car accidents, as compared with 83 percent of motorcycle accidents.
How to Deal with the Insurance Company After a Crash
Let us guide you through the claims process and fight to protect your right to fair compensation. You simply cannot count on the insurance company to treat you fairly. They will most likely attempt to deny you compensation by demonstrating that you are to blame for your crash or seek to minimize your claim through arguments that your injuries and losses are not as great as they actually are.
The only person you should trust after an accident is your Houston personal injury attorney. Insurance companies do not have your best interest in mind, so you cannot trust them to settle your claim for the level of compensation you deserve. They are in the business of making money – plain and simple. For this reason, it would be wise to contact the Daspit Law Firm immediately after an accident.
