Motorcycle Accident

Motorcycles represent the personal freedom that so many Americans hold dear. After all, there is nothing quite like soaring down a Texas road with the sun in your face and a bike at your control. The thrill and freedom of a motorcycle is just as much a part of American life as free speech, apple pie, and a good plate of Texas barbeque.

Unfortunately, motorcycles do not come without risk of accident. In most cases, the motorcycle driver is not the cause of the accident. Negligent drivers of other vehicles who fail to take the proper precautions when sharing the rode cause the majority of motorcycle accidents. If you were involved in an incident that requires an Arlington motorcycle accident attorney, you can trust The Law Office of Dorothy Hyde to fight by your side. We bring the experience necessary to obtain compensation for your suffering.

Motorcycle Injuries

The responsibility of owning and operating a motorcycle should not be taken lightly. As the saying goes, “with great power comes great responsibility.” In order to drive a motorcycle in Arlington, you must obtain a motorcycle license. There are even courses you can take to learn about safe driving procedures. With that being said, even the most cautious motorcyclist cannot avoid the errant driving of others.

Data collected by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration demonstrates the severity of motorcycle accidents. Perhaps most troubling in their findings is that, during accidents, motorcyclists face 28 times the risk of death compared to car passengers. Arlington can be particularly dangerous for motorcyclists: it is in the top ten for areas with the most motorcycle accidents in Texas.

The types of motorcycle injuries vary. Road rash, which is a common injury that occurs during a motorcycle accident, is caused when a motorcyclist skids across the pavement. Road rash can cause serious infections and nerve damage. Another common motorcyclist injury is limb damage. Injuries to the arm or leg of a motorcyclist frequently occur during an accident when you try to brace yourself after being thrown from the motorcycle.

The most sever motorcycle injuries usually involve the head. Motorcycle-related head injuries range from concussions and skull fractures to brain damage and even death. While helmets can help prevent injuries, they cannot guarantee you will avoid head injuries from an accident.
