Throughout Corpus Christi, Texas, a motorcycle accident often results in
serious and permanent injuries. Death is a possibility. Often on Corpus
Christi highways, motorcycle accidents cause injuries that are more serious
than an accident between two similar size vehicles.
There are a number of reasons that motorcycle accidents occur. Passenger
vehicles weigh approximately 3000 pounds. Popular brands of motorcycles
range in weight from 250 to 910 pounds. Motorcycles traveling at high
speeds are difficult to maneuver. The slightest error can make the motorcycle
flip over. The difference in size allows a motorcycle driver to slip easily
into the blind spot of a car.
The most dangerous situation occurs when cars make left turns. Forty-two
percent of motorcycle accidents involve a car making a left turn. The
collisions happen as motorcyclists go through intersections, try to pass
cars, or attempt to overtake cars. The size of the motorcycle makes it
less visible to a turning car.
Under normal circumstances, the driver making the turn is considered to
be at fault. If, however, a motorcyclist is in the wrong lane or speeding,
he or she may be partially at fault. That means the motorcyclist receive
less compensation for damages and injuries as a result of the accident.
The proximity of the car to the motorcycle, reduced space to maneuver
a motorcycle, and not anticipating a pass in slow or stopped traffic are
also factors considered.
Not knowing how many pounds a motorcycle can safely carry is not always
easy to determine. Exceeding the weight limit is often the cause of deadly
tire failure. Manufacturers make it difficult to determine what the weight
limits are. The information, buried in the owner’s manual, is hard
to find and interpret. Most dealers do not know the weight limit and,
therefore, do not share it with a customer.
Extensive medical, insurance and legal issues can arise. The issues become
intertwined which makes them confusing. Medical issues include follow-up
doctor visits, rehabilitation fees, prescriptions, and on-going injuries.
The associated expenses go beyond the initial medical treatment costs.
Many motorcycle riders are underinsured. The coverage should cover more
than replacing or repairing the motorcycle. Medical expenses and loss
of wages are concerns when the motorcyclist is unable to work.
Accident victims are sometimes reluctant to hire a lawyer to submit a
claim because of possible legal fees. Most lay people have no knowledge
regarding proper submission of an insurance claim that will guarantee
the full benefits. Place legal issues in the hands of an expert. A reduction
in stress and a more favorable outcome are likely.
The Doan Law Firm attorneys provide insight into relevant claims. Motorcycle
accidents have left some victims permanently injured and unable to work.
The trauma of an accident sometimes causes victims to be unable to maintain
relationships with family and friends.
Inexperienced lay people may not know they have the right to file claims
for such a loss. Compensation for relationship or experience deprivations
must be sought properly to receive it.
Doan Law Firm lawyers personalize your claim. Insurance companies process
thousands of claims each year. Chances of receiving a favorable outcome
increase when a claim demonstrates the victim is a unique individual having
a set of unique circumstances.
‘Damages’ is a legal word for money lost due to an injury.

Law Firm personal injury lawyers see their job as recovering damages from
all parties responsible.
