Motorcycle Accident Lawyer For Houston
Motorcycle Accidents & Injuries
While driving a motorcycle is certainly entertaining and a great way to commute due to the gas mileage, they can be dangerous when involved in an accident. Because of their small profile, they are difficult for some drivers to see on the road, becoming an easy target in an accident. Since they also afford no exterior protection to the occupants, other than a helmet, any accident can cause severe injuries. According to the NHTSA (National Highway Safety Transportation Administration), “Per vehicle mile traveled in 2006, motorcyclists were about 35 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a motor vehicle traffic crash and 8 times more likely to be injured.”
With the types of injuries likely in a motorcycle accident due to the much larger weight of an automobile versus a motorcycle, it is important to have a motorcycle accident attorney to assist you in presenting your claim. Motorcycle accidents can cause severe, if not fatal injuries. Some of these injuries can include:
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Loss of limbs
- Road burns
The consequences can be long term medical care, disability, and even life altering injuries that affect the quality of life. If you or a loved one has recently been injured in a motorcycle accident due to someone else’s negligence, investigating the accident fully is important to ensure you obtain all possible compensation for your losses.
