Sherman Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

An accident involving a motorcycle can easily turn catastrophic. Motorcycle accidents account for numerous injuries and deaths each year. While a motorcycle may be a fun hobby or an affordable means of transportation, it does not offer the same protection a car does, resulting in greater, serious injuries during a crash. An experienced Sherman motorcycle accident lawyer understands that, despite exercising care and caution, you may still be injured in a motorcycle accident.

If you have been the victim of another driver’s negligence or recklessness, a seasoned attorney could help you. They could work with you to recover medical expenses and compensation for your injuries.

Motorcycle Safety

The Texas Transportation Code Chapter 661 requires that all motorcycle riders under the age of 21 wear a helmet. Since this does not apply to riders over the age of 21, some riders elect not to wear a helmet. This can prove fatal if they are involved in an accident. However, a motorcyclist should know that if they are not wearing a helmet, the law requires that they either carry valid health insurance or have completed a safety course. These laws are designed to keep motorcyclists safe on the roads.

A number of hazards and threats on the roads particularly impact motorcyclists. Examples include:

  • Drunk or impaired drivers
  • Distracted drivers
  • Poorly maintained roadways, including potholes
  • Lack of visibility
  • Failure to maintain a proper distance

If someone believes their accident resulted from a motorist’s failure to obey safety rules, reach out to a Sherman motorcycle accident attorney to discuss liability.

Determining Fault for Sherman Crashes

Unfortunately, some motorists do not exercise the necessary degree of caution when driving. Maneuvering around a motorcycle is different than navigating around a car or truck. Sometimes, motorists do not leave enough room for motorcycles or fail to notice them while switching lanes. This results in accidents that can severely injure a motorcyclist.

Additionally, some motorists assume that motorcyclists drive recklessly. They wrongly assume that motorcyclists do not obey the same rules of the road and often speed or fail to signal properly. Although this may be the case for some motorcyclists, the majority obey traffic rules. However, insurance companies can capitalize on these biases and attempt to deny motorcyclists compensation for their claims. They can use any wrongdoing on the motorcyclist’s part to try to deny a claim entirely.

Even if the motorcyclist is found to be at fault in some way, this is not the end of the case. A skilled personal injury lawyer could help minimize or eliminate these fault issues. At a minimum, recovery of part of the injured motorcyclist damages can be pursued. A skilled Sherman motorcycle accident attorney could help defend a case against the insurance company’s allegations and establish any recovery to which the motorcyclist is entitled.

A Sherman motorcycle accident lawyer could assist you with getting back on the road. They could vigorously pursue your claim against the insurance companies. Their experience dealing with motorcycle accidents allows them to know the common tactics employed by the insurance companies, and how to fight back.

I was in an accident in March and had injuries resulting from the crash. Obviously my first call was to a doctor to get... checked out but was told I was going to need physical therapy. My second call was to the McCraw Law Group. They took care of all of the grunt work so that all I had to focus on was getting better. They were very communicative about the process, and better yet, they were incredibly responsive to any emails, calls, and questions. I was very appreciative and thankful for all of their hard work. They are a great group of people to work with when you’re needing the help.read more
