Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in San Angelo

Recovering Damages for Catastrophic Motorcycle Accidents

Some of the most devastating traffic accidents that occur on the road today are motorcycle accidents. When drivers of cars, vans, and trucks are involved in accidents, they have the protection of seat belts, air bags, and the vehicle surrounding them. Motorcyclists have none of these protections, only a helmet and protective clothing. There is very little to prevent catastrophic injury such as broken bones, internal injuries, head trauma, and spinal cord injuries when a motorcyclist is hit by another vehicle.

If you were hit by a negligent motorist, then you may have grounds to file a claim for your motorcycle accident. Contact Webb, Stokes & Sparks to discuss the details of your case.

Motorcycle Laws in Texas

Motorcyclists share the roads of Texas with cars and trucks, and are required to follow the same traffic laws as these other vehicles. Texas motorcycle riders have their own laws to follow as well, which apply only to people who are operating a motorcycle. For example, motorcyclists must have a motorcycle-specific license and carry motorcycle insurance.

Additionally, motorcyclists under the age of 21 are required to wear a helmet in Texas. The state does not require helmet use for people over the age of 21; rather, motorcyclists can choose to forego helmet use if they are covered by insurance or have taken a safety course. Although technically not required by law, it is crucial to wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle. Helmet use is one of the best ways to prevent injury.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Negligence is the leading cause of motorcycle accidents in San Angelo and across the country. Motorists who fail to check their mirrors or look over their shoulders before changing lanes are much more likely to hit an unsuspecting motorcyclist in the lane beside them. Even when drivers perform these duties, they can still fail to notice a motorcyclist if they are not paying close enough attention.

Some of the most common causes of motorcycle collisions are:

  • Drunk drivers
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to merge, change lanes, turn, or drive through an intersection safely and watch for motorcycles
  • Inclement weather
  • Road conditions
