Motorcycle Accidents in San Antonio, Texas

In 2018, San Antonio recorded 16 deaths from motorcycle accidents. This was actually below the five-year average of 21 deaths per year.

As any rider knows, motorcyclists face unique hazards while on the road. From in attentive drivers to debris and poorly maintained roads, motorcyclists must constantly be on the watch for other people’s mistakes. Unfortunately, no matter how attentive a motorcyclist is, not every accident is avoidable.

The experienced motorcycle accident attorneys at Thomas J. Henry Law are prepared to fight for you and help you get back on your feet and back on the road.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

For the most part, motorcycle accidents have the same causes as traditional traffic accidents. They tend to occur in the same places, such as busy intersections, and are often the result of negligence, inattentiveness, and lapses in judgement.

The top contributing factors for multiple-vehicle motorcycle accidents at intersections include:

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

Additional risks may be associated with inclement weather or mechanical issues and defects.

Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Accidents

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
  • Head and brain injuries (concussions, traumatic brain injuries)
  • Road rash, including scarring

The risks of not contacting a San Antonio injury 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.

We will also work with medical providers to ensure you receive proper medical treatment for all of your injuries.

Henry has spent years finding the best expert witnesses across the United States.

While every accident and injury is unique, it is typically best to consult with an attorney prior to making any decisions that could impact your claim. Speaking with an experienced attorney can help you understand what options available to you as well as what steps you should take to secure fair financial compensation. This is the reason Thomas J. Henry Law provides a FREE case consultation to all accident victims.

It is important to remember that the primary job of an insurance adjuster is to limit liability and save their company money. When an insurance adjuster calls you with questions concerning your accident, they are in fact looking for information that limits the liability of their client and information that can be used to downplay the extent of your injuries.

Adjusters may also ask for a recorded statement concerning your accident and injuries under the guise that they are simply gathering the information necessary to move your claim forward. The truth is that this recorded statement can actually be used to erode your case and path to financial recovery.

By speaking with an attorney before the insurers, you are protecting your rights and your best interests. If you choose to hire your attorney following your consultation, your attorney will begin working on your case that same day.
