Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Dallas
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcycle fatalities have increased each year from a low of 2116 in 1997 to an all-time high of 4,810 in 2006. NHTSA says further that motorcycle fatalities are “our nation’s highway traffic safety challenge and account for 11% of total fatalities.”
Motorcycle accidents can be catastrophic events. They can result in extremely serious injuries including:
- Head injuries
- Broken limbs
- Road burns
- Spinal cord injuries (i.e., paralysis) and
- wrongful death.
Obviously, motorcycle accident victims suffer such awful injuries because they are most vulnerable in the crash.
What is more, insurance companies tend to assume that the motorcycle driver was at fault for the accident. Images of motorcyclists speeding in between cars and being careless and reckless generally influence their opinions.
For the above reasons, motorcycle accident victims need an experienced attorney representing them. Our team consists of investigators who know how to find the underlying cause of motorcycle accidents so insurance companies cannot abrogate their responsibilities under the law. We enjoy fighting insurance companies in motorcycle accidents.
Here is our approach. First, we conduct an exhaustive interview of anyone who witnessed the accident. Our investigators will visit the accident scene and reconstruct the accident as much as possible. We take other essential steps to prepare each case for trial, if necessary. Therefore, the insurance company gets the point upfront that we are prepared to go the distance; so, they know not to low-ball us.
