An Alvin Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Will Advocate For Compensation
Motorcycle accidents are significantly more likely than any other type of vehicle accident to result in severe injury or death. Unfortunately, motorcycles are particularly dangerous for two primary reasons: (1) motorcycles have a very narrow profile in traffic and are hard for inattentive automobile drivers to see. As a result, it’s quite common for automobile drivers to change to another lane right in front of a motorcycle rider, and (2) motorcycle riders have very little protection compared to automobile drivers and passengers. Typically, they have only a helmet (and often not even that) and (hopefully) thick clothing to protect against “road rash” in the event of an accident. If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident, let an Alvin motorcycle accident attorney at DeKeyzer Law help you recover all of the financial compensation you’re entitled to.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
Because of the inadequate protection for motorcycle riders, their best hopes for survival or avoiding severe injuries are to avoid accidents altogether. Aside from simply “laying down” the motorcycle (falling to the side and skidding), the most common type of motorcycle accident is when automobiles collide with motorcycles, and collisions with large commercial trucks are the most dangerous type of motorcycle accident. Any type of motorcycle accident is commonly caused by:
- Another driver cutting off a motorcyclist because they don’t see them
- Distracted drivers swerving into a motorcycle’s lane
- A vehicle driver stopping suddenly at high speeds in front of a rider
- Impaired riding
- Distracted riding
- Speeding vehicles
- Dangerous road conditions caused by inclement weather
- Road defects like potholes or hazardous driving areas like construction zones
- Failure of a motorcycle part

- Broken bones
