Motorcycle Accidents are an Unfortunately Common Occurrence in Corpus Christi

Fatal motorcycle accidents continue to plague Texas roadways, and Corpus Christi is not immune to these types of crashes. In 2017, Texas eclipsed 500 motorcyclist fatalities for the second straight year. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcyclists are involved in fatal accidents 27 times more frequently than passenger car occupants.

Injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents are usually severe in nature, requiring surgeries and years of treatment and therapy. Medical bills and lost wages from missing work can cause financial hardships on you and your family. Let our Corpus Christi motorcycle accident lawyers help you navigate the legal process and help you get back on your feet.

How Do Motorcycle Accidents Continue to Happen?

Despite the great local and statewide efforts, such as TxDOT’s “Share the Road: Look Twice for Motorcycles” campaigns, motorcyclists continue to be involved in serious accidents with other vehicles. In 2015, there were eight motorcyclist deaths in Nueces County, including Corpus Christi and surrounding communities. An additional 20 incapacitating injuries occurred as a result of motorcycle crashes in the county (Texas A&M Transportation Institute).

Motorcycle accidents frequently occur at busy intersections, and a passenger vehicle is involved in 90 percent of multiple-vehicle crashes involving a motorcycle. The top contributing factors for multiple-vehicle motorcycle accidents at intersections include:

  • Failure to yield right of way
  • Failure to control speed
  • Driver inattention
  • Disregarding stop sign or stop light

Oftentimes in motorcycle accidents involving other larger vehicles, motorists cite that they simply did not see the motorcycle prior to the crash. Motorcycles are smaller and are more easily blocked by other vehicles on the road, the surrounding environment, or road signs.

Injured in a Corpus Christi Motorcycle Accident?

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, on average, a motorcyclist dies in a crash on Texas roads every day. Thousands of motorcyclists are injured each year. Motorcyclists and their passengers are at a significantly higher risk of being injured in a crash. Common injuries that occur to motorcyclists involved in wrecks include:

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Severe muscle sprains and strains
  • Spinal cord, neck, and back injuries

The risks of not contacting an attorney after an accident cannot be overstated. Simply put, you are jeopardizing your entire claim to recovery as well as future financial stability. Speaking to an insurer or insurance adjuster without consulting with an attorney can often result in:

  • Unintentional inconsistencies – Crashes and accidents are hectic and disorienting. As time moves on, you will likely remember less and less about the events leading up to and following your accident. When an insurance company goes back to compare all the statements you made over a period of weeks or months, they will claim that any inconsistencies were attempts by you to mislead the company and label them as lies before a judge or a jury.
  • Exposure to trick questions – Representatives often ask trick questions or word their inquiries in a way meant to trick or trap you. You may even be pressured into agreeing to facts that are not completely accurate just to get the representative off your back. Even an aggravated response of “I don’t know, maybe” or “I guess” can come back to haunt you later.
  • Exposure to leading statements – Even a statement that seems innocent on its surface can damage your claim depending on your response. For example, by giving a positive response to statements like “I hope your back is starting to feel a bit better” or “Wow, it’s a miracle you weren’t more seriously injured,” you could be tricked into understating the severity of your injuries.
  • Failure to report undiagnosed injuries – Most doctors agree that the full extent of injuries suffered in an accident may not be evident until several days after the accident has occurred. If a claims adjuster contacts you within 24 hours of a crash and asks about your injuries, chances are you will not be able to provide a complete list of injuries. This will not stop the insurance company from questioning and attempting to dismiss any injuries that became symptomatic after that initial recorded statement was made.
  • Provide material for cross-examination – By the time deposition or trial occurs, chances are the defense counsel will have reviewed your recorded statements dozens of times. They will craft questions for cross-examination with the understanding that you likely don’t remember everything you said or agreed to in that recorded statement. And when you misremember or contradict yourself in a moment of confusion, they will try to claim your misstatement proves your testimony is not credible.

A successful personal injury attorney will utilize their legal expertise, resources, and knowledgeable support staff to develop your case in a way that accurately demonstrates liability as well as any economic and non-economic damages you have incurred. The ultimate goal is to take care of the clients claim so that the client can focus on their health and physical recovery.

Your attorney will make sure you are treated with respect, are kept informed with the most up-to-date information on your case, and that you are comfortable throughout the entire legal process as we work to secure the compensation you deserve. We will also work with medical providers to ensure you receive proper medical treatment for all of your injuries.

If you have been injured, then you have undoubtedly questioned if you should contact an attorney or pursue your claim through your insurer. The important thing to remember that there is a difference between contacting an attorney and hiring an attorney. Regardless of your injury or how it occurred, it is always best to at least reach out to an attorney. Speaking with an experienced attorney can help you understand the options that are available to you and inform you to your best course of action. This is why Thomas J. Henry Law offers FREE no-risk case consultations to all injured victims.

Remember, insurance adjusters are familiar with claim procedures and liability, even when you are not. It is also important to remember that the primary job of an insurance adjuster is to limit their client’s liability and save their company money. Everything said during phone calls and recorded statements to an insurer can be used to challenge your claim, twist liability, and downplay the extent of your injuries. In short, the insurance company and their adjusters do not have your best interests in mind.

Injury attorneys understand the tactics most often used by insurers to chip away at a claim, and they can advise you on how your case may benefit from experienced legal representation. The insurance company representing the person or entity responsible for your injuries has already begun the process of safeguarding themselves against liability – isn’t it time you took the steps necessary to protect your rights and claim to compensation?
