Nueces County Motorcycle Wreck Lawyers Providing Legal Help to Injured Motorcyclists

Motorcyclists face a high risk of injury, even when they wear helmets, follow traffic laws, and take all possible safety precautions. Without the protection and safety features provided by passenger vehicles, motorcyclists can suffer serious bodily harm in a collision. Unfortunately, motorcyclists also face biases, since many people believe that they are prone to unsafe or reckless behavior. This can affect a person's ability to receive compensation for their injuries and damages. To ensure that they can achieve justice, motorcyclists will want to work with a personal injury lawyer who can help them demonstrate that a negligent driver was responsible for the injuries they have suffered.

At The Edwards Law Firm, multiple members of our staff are motorcycle riders, and we understand the problems that motorcyclists often face. We know firsthand how drivers often ignore motorcycles or fail to share the road safely, and we are dedicated to helping injured motorcyclists pursue financial compensation from those who caused them harm. Our attorneys have a combined total of over 100 years of legal experience, and we work to ensure that injury victims have the financial resources they need to make a full recovery and move forward with their lives.

Compensation for Motorcycle Crash Injuries

Motorcyclists can suffer multiple types of catastrophic injuries in a collision with another vehicle. These injuries may occur due to the initial impact with a car or truck, and if a person is thrown from their motorcycle, they can suffer additional harm when they hit the ground or are struck by other vehicles. The injuries suffered by a motorcyclist may include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries - Even when wearing a helmet that is approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation, a motorcyclist may suffer harm if they hit their head on a vehicle or the ground. These injuries can have long-lasting effects such as memory loss, chronic headaches, difficulties with coordination and balance, mood disorders such as PTSD, or seizures.
  • Spinal cord injuries - A collision can cause damage to a motorcyclist's back and spine. If the spinal cord is damaged or severed, a person may experience partial or total paralysis, including paraplegia or quadriplegia.
  • Broken bones - A motorcyclist may suffer fractures in the arms, legs, ribs, or hips. Broken bones can take multiple months to fully heal, and if bones are crushed or shattered, reconstructive surgery may be needed.
  • Amputations - Severe damage to a motorcyclist's limbs may lead to the loss of legs, arms, hands, or fingers.
  • Cuts and lacerations - Motorcyclists may experience "road rash" on multiple parts of their body. In some cases, these injuries can lead to permanent scarring and disfigurement.

In many cases, motorcycle crashes occur because other drivers act negligently. Many drivers fail to notice and respond properly to motorcycles on the road around them. Drivers who are distracted may turn in front of a motorcycle or change lanes without checking their blind spots, forcing a motorcyclist off the road. Collisions can also occur due to traffic violations and other unsafe behaviors by drivers, such as following too closely behind a motorcycle, refusing to allow a motorcyclist to merge into traffic, or disobeying traffic signals.
