Houston Personal Injury Attorney For Motorcycle Accidents

Updated on February 16, 2012

When hiring a Houston personal injury attorney after having a motorcycle accident it is of extreme importance that you find a law firm that has experience with these specific accidents. The reason is that most if not all insurance companies and other personal injury litigators will by default blame the motorcycle rider, just as they do with bicycle riders. There are safety issues at hand that make motorcycles almost become invisible to people driving automobiles, and many court cases are won quickly with this in mind.

Houston Personal Injury

As long as you were driving within the state’s laws, and safety guidelines, then your motorcycle should be treated with the same respect, and rights as someone who is driving a four-wheeled vehicle. Medical costs are usually much higher for Harley Davidson bikes, because naturally the operator / driver is exposed versus being covered by the body of a car, SUV, minivan, or pickup truck. These doctor’s bills can run up into the hundreds of thousands, and even more is lost when you cannot perform your job and must take off large blocks of time for recuperation, and rehabilitation.

Prevent Motorcycle Accidents With Additional Safety

Some ways to prevent even having to contact an attorney and having these tremendously painful accidents is to make a few changes to your bike, and increase the level of education you have about driving a two-wheeled vehicle. First upgrade your exhaust to a legally but louder set of pipes that will let others know that you are in close proximity to them while going down the road. Next, even during daylight hours you can become more visible by upgrading the headlamp bulb on your custom cruiser, or sports bike like the Yamaha R1 or Suzuki Hayabusa. There are also options to make your taillights, and headlight blink in random patterns during the daytime hours to make you even more noticeable.

The above suggestions may not or will not completely keep you from having a motorcycle accident in the future but it will reduce the odds of having to involve the need for a Houston personal injury firm to recoup your loses.
