In Webster, plenty of people are motorcycle enthusiasts and enjoy riding as a hobby, as well as a means of transportation. Unfortunately, motorists are not always aware of the special needs of motorcyclists, and can take actions on the road which make accidents and injuries more likely to occur. At Scott M. Brown & Associates, we provide the professional, aggressive legal representation you need in these situations. Our Webster motorcycle accident lawyers help hold reckless drivers accountable for your injuries, so you can get the compensation you need to cover medical costs, lost wages, and other expenses you incur.
According to the Texas A&M Transportation Institute, roughly 500,000 motorcycle accidents occur each year throughout the state of Texas. As Harris County leads the state in terms of the number of motorcycle registrations held by residents, drivers in our area are among those most at risk. With little to protect them in accidents involving other vehicles, motorcyclist injuries tend to be severe. Common types of injuries that can result from these crashes include:
- Burns due to contact with hot engine oil, parts, or due to road surfaces;
- Severe cuts, lacerations, and puncture wounds;
- Multiple fractures and shattered bones or joints;
- Facial injuries, resulting in vision loss and damage to the jaw and teeth;
- Head injuries, resulting in permanent brain damage;
- Back and neck injuries, including whiplash and damage to the spinal cord.
These types of injuries often require ongoing medical attention, while leaving you with lasting disabilities that prevent you from working or enjoying hobbies and activities with family and friends. In these situations, our Webster motorcycle accident lawyers at Scott M. Brown & Associates can advise you on how to get the compensation you need to recover by filing a claim against those responsible.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) claims that motorcycle accidents are complex events, often involving adverse road, traffic, and weather conditions, along with other factors. However, one of the most common causes of motorcycle crashes and injuries are reckless driving behaviors on the part of other motorists. Actions on the part of drivers that could put you at risk include:
- Aggressive driving, such as tailgating and improper passing;
- Speeding, and going too fast for conditions;
- Driving distracted, such as using cell phones and texting;
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or other substances.
