Motorcycle accidents are some of the most dangerous in Brownsville. Most of these accidents occur due to the negligence of another driver, not the motorcyclist. Under Texas law, that party must pay for the damages their negligence caused.
Kenny Perez Law protects victims’ rights and fights for financial compensation to make up for the damages incurred.
The firm understands how motorcycle injuries can change a person’s lifestyle and set them back months or even years. In some cases, motorcycle accident injuries affect a person’s life forever.
As Brownsville motorcycle accident lawyers, we understand the challenges you face. If we feel you have a viable claim, Kenny Perez Law will aggressively pursue a case to help recover much-needed compensation.
Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Three in every four motorcycle accidents occur because of a collision with another vehicle. Most of these happen because of the negligence of the other driver. These drivers may not see motorcycles while switching lanes or follow too closely and rear-end them. They may violate traffic laws like speed limits or blow through stop signs or stoplights.
That motorcycles are hard to spot due to their small size is no excuse for causing an accident. You have every right to seek compensation when someone violates traffic laws or their duty to care.
Many factors increase the chances of motorcycle accidents. While riders may apply the best safety practices, they cannot control other drivers.
Other common causes of motorcycle accidents in Brownsville include:
Bad weather, like rain, ice, snow, or wind, increases the risk of vehicle accidents for everyone. A slippery road reduces friction and decreases braking effectiveness. Inclement weather also limits visibility. A mistimed brake while driving too fast or following a motorcycle too closely for conditions can lead to a collision.
Accidents often occur in intersections due to the number of vehicles interacting there. These cars go in different directions, making it easy for collisions to take place.
Some of Brownsville’s most accident-prone intersections are along:
- North Frontage Road
- Sam Pearl Boulevard
- Ruben M. Torres Boulevard
- Morrison Road
- International Boulevard
Car density is heavy in Brownsville, especially during rush hour. So many vehicles moving around can create dangerous situations for motorcycle riders and their passengers.
In these high-traffic areas, most drivers may notice the trucks, busses, and passenger cars, but could miss the smaller motorcycles. A large number of cars in an area also limits the space in which motorcycles can navigate. Motorcycle riders may encounter a hazard on the road or become stuck between two vehicles.
While Brownsville is an urban environment, it isn’t free from hazards. Continuous use of the roads means a higher rate of wear and tear. Potholes and uneven pavement can affect handling. An oil spill or puddle can also affect brakes and handling, leading to accidents.
Most of these hazards are small and negligible to larger cars, they aren’t easy for motorcycle riders to navigate. Railroad tracks and debris can lead to the motorcycle losing its stability.
The Texas Department of Transportation classifies motorcycle accidents into three broad categories:
- Driver error
- Road conditions
- Drivers disobeying laws
Here are some other causes of motorcycle accidents that our firm often encounters:
- Distracted driving
- Poor road maintenance
- Using a cellphone while driving
Helping You Get Motorcycle Accident Compensation
Injuries sustained from a motorcycle accident in Brownsville range from minor cuts to life-altering injuries. These injuries can even lead to fatalities, affecting the family with a great loss. Kenny Perez Law understands the grief and the pain. Specialized lawyers work hard to ensure that there is justice and that the family gets the support it needs in trying times.
Over the years, our firm has seen many motorcycle accident injuries.
Here are injuries many motorcycle drivers have had to deal with:
- Broken bones
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord issues
- Organ damage
Many of these severe injuries will cost enormous sums to treat.
When Kenny Perez Law initiates settlement demands or lawsuits, our lawyers use our resources to investigate all aspects of a case. We compute immediate medical treatment costs and account for projected future costs of the injured party. We calculate the cost of vehicle damage, income loss, and pain and suffering.
At times, we need not go to court. Instead, we negotiate with the other party’s insurance company to try to secure a quick settlement. If they refuse to do so or offer an amount that’s not enough to cover your damages, we can go to court. We always work to prepare a case that will sway the odds in our clients’ favor and justify the compensation we seek for you.
