Despite taking every precaution, motorcycle riders in McAllen do get into accidents on a frequent basis. Overall, crashes involving motorcycles and other vehicles account for 56% of all motorcycle accident deaths. According to statistics, the single most dangerous situation for a motorcycle rider takes place when cars make left-hand turns. This accounts for 42 % of all accidents involving a motorcycle and a car. In almost all cases, when a vehicle turns in front of another one, they will be found liable for the accident. The only exception is if the motorcycle rider was speeding or in the wrong lane.
Motorcycle riders are always taught to ride defensively. With so little protection and so many hazards on the road, the best way to survive and enjoy riding a motorcycle is to ride defensively. However, despite obeying every law in the book, wearing protective gear including a helmet, and anticipating dangerous situations, riders still are frequently involved in accidents. Injuries can be severe and even sometimes result in death.
Working with an Experienced Motorcycle Accident Attorney
If you are involved in an accident, you will need to explore your legal options immediately to determine if the accident was due to someone else’s careless or reckless acts. Just as it is with other kinds of accidents, your attorney must be able to prove the other party was negligent, giving you the opportunity to seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related costs.
