Motorcyclists are more likely to sustain an injury during an accident because unlike motor vehicles, airbags do not surround them and they are not enclosed in a car. Sometimes the only protection a cyclist has is a helmet and a motorcycle jacket.

If you have been hurt in a motorcycle accident, insurance companies may want to push for a quick settlement that serves their bottom line. If you have suffered a severe injury, you deserve maximum compensation. When you are involved in a motorcycle crash (whether as a driver or in another vehicle), you may have sustained a severe injury such as a fracture, lacerations, brain injuries, internal organ damage, or loss of limbs. If you have suffered an injury, you may be entitled to take action and regain compensation for medical attention and other losses.

Common Types of Motorcycle Accidents in Brownsville

Many different types of accidents can occur due to driver carelessness, and some are more fatal than others. Types of motorcycle crashes can include:

  • Rear-end accidents: When another vehicle rear-ends a motorcycle, the passenger can be thrown from their bike and onto the road.
  • Sideswipes: Because motorcycles are smaller than other cars on the road, they can sometimes not be spotted by drivers, leading to collisions.
  • Head-on crashes: A head-on crash can be fatal for a motorcyclist since they have no vehicle surrounding them as protection.
  • Lane change accidents: Because of blind spots for vehicles, lane changes can be dangerous (especially for a motorcyclist caught in a car’s blind spot).
  • Left-turn crashes: If a vehicle makes a left-hand turn without proper precaution, collisions can occur.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Brownsville

Motorcycling can be enjoyable but very dangerous at the same time. Motorcyclists sustain some of the most severe injuries on the road because they are mostly unprotected. Also, because motorcycles are smaller than vehicles, they can go undetected and get hit. To file a motorcycle injury claim, the driver that caused the crash must be found negligent. Below you’ll find several circumstances that can cause a driver to be found negligent.

  • Distracted Driving: Cell phones and other distractions can cause drivers to make mistakes on the road.
  • Sudden Stops: Sudden stops can lead to rear-end accidents and are extremely dangerous.
  • Drug or alcohol use: If a driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they may be more impaired and will not have as fast of reaction time to other vehicles on the road. Also, they may swerve, which could lead to accidents.
  • Speeding: Speeding decreases a vehicle’s chance of reacting to other drivers appropriately. It is one of the leading causes of accidents on the road. The higher the speed, the more significant impact and more detrimental consequences.
  • Failure to follow the proper rules of the road: This could include not stopping at a stop sign, not yielding to other vehicles properly, or not obeying other signals.

Common Injuries Related to Motorcycle Accidents

Some bikers are lucky enough to walk away from an accident with no more than a scratch. However, motorcyclists often get the worst of a collision and often end up in the hospital. Many injuries warrant compensation:

  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Loss of limb
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations or “road rash”

Seeking Compensation After a Motorcycle Accident

Immediately following a motorcycle accident, you may be confused or unsure of what to do. In the aftermath of a motorcycle accident, make sure you get medical attention, report the accident, gather evidence, and contact an attorney.

If you or a loved one sustained an injury in a motorcycle accident due to the actions or carelessness of another driver, you might be entitled to seek a motorcycle injury claim. Medical costs and rehabilitation related to motorcycle accidents can often be long term and incredibly expensive. This is why you must seek compensation if you believe you are not at fault for your injuries.

Our Brownsville motorcycle accident attorneys can guide you through every step of understanding the legal process, help you get treatment, and assist you in seeking compensation for these injuries. You may be able to recoup your losses and rehabilitation costs through a lawsuit. Our personal injury attorneys in Brownsville have helped several motorcycle accident victims get compensation for physical, psychological, and financial losses.
