Our Amarillo Motorcycle Injury Firm Fights for Results Clients Need

Motorcycles can weave through lanes and between neighboring cars because of their small size. Unfortunately, these advantages also make them vulnerable to life-threatening collisions. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, motorcycle-related deaths have increased by 55% since 2000. An average of 4,900 people were killed in motorcycle accidents in 2017. Since motorcyclists have little protection, they are more likely to suffer severe or catastrophic injuries that require extensive medical treatments and other related expenses.

If you were a victim of a severe motorcycle accident or lost a loved one in a crash, you have the right to seek compensation for your losses. An Amarillo motorcycle accident attorney from Arnold & Itkin LLP may be able to develop a strong case on your behalf.

We understand how difficult life becomes after a tragic accident, so we are here to work tirelessly on your behalf. Contact us for a free consultation today at (888) 493-1629.

The Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Since motorcycles lack the protection that vehicles provide, riders have a 35% higher chance of being involved in a severe accident. Many people might think that motorcyclists cause the majority of motorcycle-related accidents, but that's a misconception. It's car drivers who cause most motorcycle accidents.

  • Negligent Drivers
    Motorcyclists’ are trained to know how to avoid the dangers they face with other vehicles on the road, but drivers are not trained to look out for motorcycles. Any time a driver disobeys traffic laws or drives while distracted, they are being negligent. When another person fails to pay attention, fails to check blind spots, or swerves into a lane abruptly, they might unknowingly hit a motorcycle rider. Even if a distraction only lasts a second, a second is all it takes to cause a tragic accident.
  • Driver Blind Spots
    One of the most common negligent behaviors is failing to check blind spots. Every vehicle has blind spots, so it is vital for all drivers to frequently check their blind spots when changing lanes. Because motorcycles are much smaller than vehicles, there are many cases where a driver failed to check their blind spot and changed lanes without realizing they were about to collide with a motorcycle. Failing to take this simple precaution can result in a catastrophic accident.
  • Dangerous Roadways
    Dangerous roadways can also be a major hazard to motorcyclists. Hazards include potholes, uneven pavement, and other similar hazards. These are dangerous because they can cause motorcyclists to lose control and swerve more than they would for a four-wheeled vehicle. A case like this would hold government entities and contractors responsible for not maintaining roads.
  • Defective Parts
    Another often-overlooked cause of motorcycle accidents is faulty equipment. It is common for motorcycle components or designs to be defective. In other cases, the motorcycle might have been designed to be safe but manufactured poorly. In such cases, your Amarillo motorcycle accident attorney can conduct a thorough investigation to determine which company would be held liable for producing and selling your defective motorcycle.

Common Injuries from Motorcycle Accidents

  • Brain Injuries
    Brain injuries can cause permanent damage and range from a contusion to a concussion. Brain injuries require extensive medical treatments.
  • Spine Injuries
    Spine injuries can cause life-altering injuries if it involves fractures to the vertebra, slipped discs, or crush injuries.
  • Road Rash
    These injuries occur when a person is ejected from the motorcycle and is thrown across the ground. The friction between the person and the pavement can cause serious burn injuries. These injuries are excruciating and can cause permanent scarring.
  • Fractures
    With little protection between the rider and other vehicles, fractures are among the most severe injuries for riders to suffer.
  • Loss of Limb
    An amputation accident is extremely painful and emotionally devastating. These injuries are catastrophic because they permanently lower the sufferer's quality of life.
