West Texas Motorcycle Accident Lawyer In Abilene
West Central Texas is one of the most beautiful places in the United States to enjoy riding a motorcycle. On any given day, thousands of bikers use our roads and highways to get themselves to work, to travel to other destinations or just enjoy the big country scenery. Unfortunately, many drivers in cars and trucks don’t pay enough attention, putting bikers and their passengers at risk.
Although motorcycle safety is improving nationwide, in a typical year, more than 400 people are killed in motorcycle accidents across Texas, accounting for 15 percent of all traffic fatalities. Hundreds more are seriously injured — making our state one of the few states in which the number of motorcycle accidents continue to rise.*
In many cases, the car driver fails to see the oncoming motorcycle and pulls out in front of the bike onto the road or highway. In some cases, motorcycle accidents are the result of a car driver changing lanes without checking the sideview mirror. Whatever the case, a significant number of motorcycle crashes are the result of car or truck driver negligence.
“Accidents between cars and motorcycles frequently result in disabling injuries to, or the death of, the motorcycle operator. The cases are very different from a typical car wreck, in large part because many people believe that if you drive a motorcycle you assume the risk that you may not be seen. Texas law is to the contrary, as motorcycles, bicycles and other two-wheeled vehicles have the same rights as we do when we drive a car. As a lawyer with experience representing individuals and the families of those killed while riding a motorcycle through no fault of their own, I understand and appreciate nuances of these cases, and the strategies used to maximize or minimize recovery. Let me use that experience on your side.” Attorney Greg Allen
