Overcoming Inherent Bias with the Help of a Motorcycle Accidents Lawyer

Motorcycles do not have the design or protective features other types of vehicles possess. With only a helmet and pads to serve as protection, and no steel barrier insulating the operator, riders lose their lives at a much higher rate in accidents than do drivers of cars. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, a motorcycle accidents lawyer at Wenholz | Dow, P.C., Trial Lawyers in Austin, TX, will seek compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, diminished earning capacity, pain and suffering, and other damages.

Overcoming Bias in Motorcycle Accident Cases

Motorcyclists are sometimes regarded as free-spirited and adventurous. Sadly, this perception can present itself in a court of law. When a motorcycle and another vehicle are involved in an accident, the motorcyclist is often assumed to be the responsible party, even if they were the victim. That is why it is imperative to have a skilled motorcycle accidents lawyer on your side who can deliver irrefutable facts on your behalf.

Our attorneys understand the uphill battle you face in terms of perception, and will fight to identify who is to blame.

We understand the uphill battle you face in terms of perception and fights to identify who is to blame, whether it is another motorist, the manufacturer, or road conditions.

Yet, even with a helmet, motorcyclists are at a serious disadvantage, as they are exposed and do not have seatbelts. This means side impacts will result in a blow to the body and collisions from behind will often result in ejections.

Injuries Sustained in Motorcycle Accidents

There are many scenarios in which motorcyclists are victims in an accident. Whether because they misjudged the speed of a motorcycle or did not account for their presence, it is not uncommon for cars to cut off bikers. Sudden lane changes, often an effect of distracted driving and inattentiveness, is another serious recurring problem. Regardless of the cause of the accident, there are severe, long-lasting, and often fatal outcomes that may result. Common injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents include:
