Left Turn Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Motorists that fail to spot a motorcycle when making a left turn and those
that fail to yield at intersections have been the cause of countless traffic
accidents. Even a minor mishap or collision has the potential to cause
serious injury and may leave motorcyclists faced with extensive repair
and medical costs. Many motorcyclists who have been injured in a left
turn accident often fail to seek legal assistance because they fail to
realize that Traffic Collision Reports in the State of Texas are considered
hearsay, and cannot be used as evidence in order to determine who was at fault.
The services and assistance of a qualified attorney can be an essential resource should an insurance company argue that your accident was caused due to your negligence or maintain that you had been traveling at an "unsafe rate of speed." Legal representation and assistance may allow you to obtain a more favorable verdict, ruling or outcome to your case or suit. The financial compensation you may be entitled to should you be the victim of an accident is never a concern that should be taken lightly.
Liability and Fault in Left Turn Accidents
Establishing liability in accidents that occur when a turning motorist executes a left-hand turn may require a number of different factors to be taken into account such as:
- Did the turning motorist properly respond to the green arrow traffic signal
- Was the intent to turn left properly signaled
- Was right of way properly given to foot traffic and pedestrians crossing the intersection
- Did the motorist yield to traffic approaching from the opposite direction
Our firm has the legal experience needed to advise you regarding any Texas State traffic laws that may pertain to your accident. If you have been injured in a left turn accident, obtaining effective legal guidance and representation can be essential for ensuring liability is determined accurately. Innocent motorcyclists who have been injured in a left turn accident often require professional representation in order to obtain the financial compensation they may be owed should they suffer injuries.
Recovering From a Motorcycle Accident
Recovering from a severe injury can often take years of treatment and result in thousands of dollars in medical expenses. The recovery process may also result in lost wages and earnings, creating further financial stress and problems. Both the long-term financial and physical consequences of a serious accident can be devastating. Effective legal representation can play a key role in your ability to obtain financial assistance or compensation, and the services and representation that only the best firms and attorney are able to provide are never a resource that injured motorcyclists should be without.
Temporary And Permanent Injuries
A collision with a motorist can result in a wide range of different injuries. Some of these injuries may be minor or superficial, healing quickly and with little long-term consequence, while others may require significant amounts of time and medical care in order for motorcyclists to recovery. Serious injuries can have long-term consequence, forcing accident victims to change their daily habits and make adjustments to their everyday routine in order to compensate for a loss of function or an impaired ability.
Severe injuries that may result from motorcycle accidents may include:
- Abrasions and road rash
- Broken bones and trauma to joints and connective tissue
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spine and nerve damage
- Internal injuries
While all injuries can be painful, damage to the central nervous system (spine and brain) can result in a loss of function that may impair speech, motor skills or even cognitive abilities. Accidents that may result in a TBI or damage to the spine and nervous system can be life-altering events that may leave victims unable to perform even the most basic of everyday tasks or require them to obtain long-term and even daily assistance from a full-time care provider. If you or someone close to you have suffered from a serious motorcycle injury, obtaining legal assistance can be of paramount concern.
What To Do in The Event of an Injury
While the first priority after an accident or injury should always be to obtain appropriate medical care and assistance, contacting an attorney at the first available opportunity can have several important advantages. Discussing the circumstances of your accident while the memory is still fresh will ensure that your attorney is better able to represent you throughout the process. Arranging for any further medical tests and diagnostics, preparing your case or suit and knowing how to move forward can all become problematic for those who lack effective legal representation.
