Motorcycle Accidents Common in Dallas and Throughout Texas

Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents are not an uncommon occurrence in Dallas, and fatal motorcycle crashes are on the rise throughout our state.

According to TXDOT, Texas saw an alarming 17% increase in Texas motorcycle fatalities in 2020 with 482 deaths recorded. There were an additional 1,856 motorcyclists seriously injured in the 7,481 motorcycle crashes in 2020.

Injuries suffered in motorcycle accidents are on average more severe than those suffered in car accidents. Because of the limited protection offered by a motorcycle, injuries can often require surgeries as well as long-term treatment and physical therapy. In addition to physical hardships, medical bills and time off of work can place financial burdens on you and your family. Let our Dallas motorcycle accident attorneys assist you with the legal process and help you get back on your feet.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Dallas

Like car accidents, motorcycle accidents are most often the result of human error. They tend to occur in the same places as car accidents, such as busy intersections, and be the product of negligence, inattentiveness, and lapses in judgment.

The following are the top contributing factors for multiple-vehicle motorcycle accidents:

  • Lack of experience with riding a motorcycle
  • Failure to yield to the right of way
  • Speeding or driving recklessly
  • Distracted driving & not driving defensively
  • Failure to remain visible at all times
    • Many drivers involved in accidents with motorcycles claim to have not seen the motorcyclist coming
  • Failure to yield to stop signs or stop lights
  • Inclement weather creating dangerous road conditions
  • Mechanical issues
    • Accidents can be caused by defects in a motorcycle’s design; this could be the basis for a product liability case.

When you neglect to speak with a Dallas injury attorney following an accident or injury, you may be risking more than you realize. Insurance adjusters will pick apart your claim, potentially leaving you with bills and expenses that were not your fault. Even speaking with an attorney can help you avoid potential pitfalls, including:

  • 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 reputable personal injury lawyer can utilize their legal expertise, resources, and staff to help build your case and demonstrate the damages suffered. They understand what damages can be sought, ensuring you are compensated not only for your injuries but also financial losses tied to lost wages and medical checkups.

Our Dallas injury lawyers can also help alleviate the stress that follows an accident or injury. We want to make sure you are treated with respect and that you feel that you are in full control of the situation. We will keep you up-to-date on the status of your claim and work with medical providers and authorities to make sure all the necessary documents and information are in place for you.

No matter the cause or severity of your accident, it is typically in your best interest to speak with a lawyer about your claim. Speaking with an experienced attorney can help you understand the options that are available to you and inform you of your best course of action. This is why Thomas J. Henry Law offers FREE no-risk case consultations to all injured victims.

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?
