Motorcyel Accident Personal Lawyer serving Houston Texas area

Riding motorcycles on public roads carries several times the risk of riding in cars. A motorcycle crash is a complex event involving human, vehicle and environmental factors. Without question, a motorcycle crash can be a violent event wherein at least 80% of motorcycle crashes result in physical injury or death.

A motorcycle crash lacks the protections for the human body that vehicle crashes provide. An automobile has more weight and bulk that a motorcycle. It also contains the occupants at the moment of impact, whereas a human body has little defenses when it is thrown from a motorcycle.  

Traveling on a motorcycle carries a much higher risk of death or injury than driving the same distance in a car. The National Safety Council states that in 2020, the majority of motorcyclist fatalities occurred:

  • On urban roads (60%)
  • In good weather (78%)
  • During daylight conditions (50%)
  • In crashes involving two vehicles (52%)
  • When wearing helmets (58%)

In addition, 73% of the motorcycle operators involved in fatal crashes were NOT alcohol-impaired. 

Dealing with the aftermath of a motorcycle accident can be devastating. Not only do you have to cope with your injuries, but you also face the stress of dealing with your injury claim.

Unfortunately, insurance companies still have one goal: to pay you as little as possible. It doesn’t matter to the insurance company if you have been severely injured or lost a loved one. That is why you need an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer to deal with the insurance company on your behalf. You deserve to receive compensation for your loss. Period.
