Motorcycle accidents are often severe, due to the biker’s lack of protection compared to occupants of enclosed motor vehicles. Statistics reveal that three out of four motorcycle accidents involve another vehicle—typically a passenger car. Many motorcycle accidents take place at intersections, when a driver fails to see the motorcyclist and makes a turn into the biker’s right of way.
While motorcycle accidents are often caused by drivers of other motor vehicles, many other factors can cause an accident or make the injuries worse. These include:
- equipment malfunction
- defective roadways including poor lighting and signage
- poorly marked construction zones
- road debris
- inclement weather
- black ice
Since motorcycle accident lawsuits often involve serious injuries, the potential damages can be significant. Consequently, it is important to choose a motorcycle accident attorney with specific experience handling motorcycle accident lawsuits. An attorney with motorcycle accident case experience can help you recover the full value of your claim. Sadly, most motorcycle accidents involve serious injuries. Since most drivers on the road in Austin are insured with the state minimum insurance limits, or worse not insured at all, it is very wise to carry Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage on your insurance policy.
