Your El Paso Personal Injury Lawyer Dealing With Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles are well-known to drivers everywhere. These two-wheeled speedsters weave in and out of traffic through cars and semi trucks alike, often putting other drivers on edge. It’s no surprise that motorcycle accidents occur on a near-constant basis. In 2015, nearly 450 motorcycle drivers and their passengers died in accidents in Texas. If you or a loved one have been part of a motorcycle accident, it’s necessary to team up with a personal injury attorney so your case can be dealt with accordingly. Whether you’re the motorcyclist or the driver, Sergio Coronado can help.

 

Why You Need Legal Aid

Much like car and truck accidents, motorcycle accidents occur on a constant basis in Texas streets and highways. Motorcycle accidents differ greatly because the motorcyclist has little to no protection while driving. Although a helmet and protective gear may help in some instances, the motorcyclist will still be thrown from his or her motorcycle in the event of an accident. This can result in bodily injury and even death. Hitting asphalt or pavement at high speeds can cause bones to break and skin to rip. Recovering from such injuries is a long, painful road. Not to mention, it’s expensive. If you’re the victim, you deserve a team that will fight for your rights so you can get the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering.

 

Major Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Due to their smaller size, motorcycles are able to speed between cars and trucks easily. Although this may be efficient for the motorcyclist, it can put them and those around them in peril. Drivers everywhere have experienced this at some point or another. But this is a negative stigma held against motorcyclists. The majority of motorcyclists adhere to the laws of Texas. Even the safest motorcyclist can fall victim to the following common causes of motorcycle accidents:

  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Speeding
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Sudden stops
  • Left turn accidents
  • Hazardous road conditions

 

As you can see, many of these common causes are out of the control of the motorcyclist. Motorcycle accidents tend to lead to disastrous outcomes, often leading victims to spend time in the hospital while they recover from their injuries. This time spent away from work will amount to lost wages and mounting medical bills. If you’ve faced personal injuries from a motorcycle accident, you require a strong legal defense so you can recover in peace. Sergio Coronado Law is ready to help.

 

What To Do When a Motorcyclist is At Fault

Spousal support is the term used to describe additional money paid by one spouse to the other over a temporary period of time in order to support the ex-spouse following the divorce. This money is not part of the division of property or child support. Spousal support may come into play if one spouse doesn’t make as much as the other, is younger than the other, or doesn’t have a college degree.

Motorcycles are often invisible to drivers, hiding in blind spots. Even the most careful motorcyclist can be at fault for a motorcycle accident. And even if the motorcyclist is at fault, the other driver may still be at risk of facing charges as severe as manslaughter. If you’re in this situation, time is of the essence.
