Severity Of Injuries May Be Enhanced
For those who are involved in a motorcycle accident, chances are that it involved a car or a truck or 18- wheeler. While car accident victims may also suffer severe injuries, they are often more protected than motorcycle accident victims simply because of the structure of the vehicles. Head, back and limb injuries may be far more devastating for those who are on a motorcycle and involved in an accident.
Risk of death is from a motorcycle accident is much greater
While it may seem like common sense would dictate that fatalities involving accidents with bikers would be greater than with only cars, this is also backed up by government studies. Numerous statistics show that a motorcyclist in Houston or anywhere in Texas is about 35 times more likely than someone in a passenger car to be involved in a fatal motor vehicle accident on the road. The primary cause of injury or death during a motorcycle accident is the motorcyclist’s lack of proper protection compared to that of a regular car driver. Much of this information is available from the >National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
When you are involved in an auto accident you have certain rights. Before you are confronted with a barrage of questions from an insurance company, you should contact a personal injury attorney for guidance. Too often, insurance companies have one goal: To settle claims as quickly as possible with as little payment as possible. When motorcycle accident victims contact motorcycle accident lawyers, they have a better chance of getting the compensation to which they are entitled.
