Motorcyclists love the freedom of being on the open road without being surrounded by a cage. Unfortunately, when a negligent driver causes an accident, the motorcyclist is exposed to serious injury. Being thrown from a motorcycle can lead to broken bones, neck and back injuries, road rash, and traumatic brain injury. The exposure a rider faces following the initial impact can be severe. At Portner ♦ Bond, PLLC, our attorneys represent motorcycle riders who have been injured in accidents throughout the state of Texas. We also represent family members of people who have died in fatal accidents.
Let a Motorcycle Accident Attorney Protect You Following an Accident
Motorcycles face risk of serious injury anytime they ride. Automobile drivers often fail to share the road as they should. Especially in this day and age, with drivers facing an ever-increasing amount of distractions, many motorists don’t see a motorcycle rider until it’s too late. While we aren’t there to protect you from this kind of negligence, we can protect you in the aftermath of an accident and fight for your right to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering.
Some of the most common types of accidents involving bikes are:
- Left-hand turns in front of a motorcyclist.
- Sideswiping a motorcycle.
- Rear-ending a motorcycle that is parked at an intersection.
- Failing to give a motorcyclist the right of way.
- Accidents caused by road debris or unsafe highway conditions.
Even when fault lies squarely with the other driver, motorcyclists may be treated unfairly by insurance companies. Many people see motorcyclists as risk-takers, and when a driver blames an accident on the motorcyclist, the insurance company may delay or deny payment. It often takes a Beaumont motorcycle accident injury lawyer to help receive the compensation you deserve. Many times the hope is that you will be too busy healing to properly challenge an insurance company’s tactics. We are more than up to the task of holding them accountable for the maximum compensation.
You focus on healing. We will take the reins of the legal process. We want to make it simple and provide the guidance necessary to get you through this difficult time.
