San Antonio’s beautiful weather and scenic roadways are perfect for a motorcycle ride almost any day of the year. But we also know that it can be dangerous. High speeds, unprotected bodies, and inattentive motor vehicle drivers put motorcycle riders at a higher risk of accidents and injuries.

Texas Department of Transportation statistical data confirms that injuries and fatalities are much higher among motorcyclists than regular motorists. Our firm has used TxDOT data to visualize and describe statistical risks for motorcyclists in San Antonio and Bexar County below for educational purposes.

Types of Motorcycle Injuries and Accidents

Motorcycle accident injuries are often severe, even when the accident occurred at a slower speed. It doesn’t take much force to throw a motorcyclist from their bike, resulting in cuts, bruises, lacerations, concussions, and broken bones. But at higher speeds, the injuries can be life-changing, or life-threatening.

We’ve handled cases involving:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Organ damage and internal bleeding
  • Wrongful death
  • And more

Often, these types of injuries are due to the negligence of a motor vehicle driver or other parties.

We have found fault in:

  • Aggressive drivers
  • Distracted and inattentive drivers
  • Impaired drivers
  • Drivers who disobey traffic laws
  • Motorcycle companies that sell faulty motorcycles
  • Cities, counties, states, and transportation departments that don’t maintain roads and traffic signs
  • And more

You May Be Entitled to Compensation

When another party is at fault, the law provides remedies so that you can be compensated. Expenses from a motorcycle accident can be especially costly. A dedicated motorcycle accident lawyer at our firm can determine what type of compensation you’re entitled to and help you recover as much as possible for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Punitive damages

What to do After a Motorcycle Accident

Your actions following a motorcycle accident are crucial to your case, and your health.

  • Move to safety! Because motorcycles are difficult to see, it’s not always obvious when an accident has occurred. Other drivers may continue to drive through the scene, unaware of what’s happened. Fuel and oil leaks are also common, making the scene vulnerable to fires. You should immediately move away from the scene of the accident and make sure that you’re safe.
  • Get medical attention. Even if you don’t think you’re injured, or your injuries seem minor, you should immediately call for medical attention. Adrenaline and shock can hide certain injuries, but the sooner you get medical attention, the sooner your injuries will be identified and treated. This will also help create a solid record for your case.
  • Report the accident. The police should be called so that a proper accident report can be written. They’ll interview witnesses, take pictures of the scene, and document the facts of the accident. You should also contact your insurance company and exchange insurance information with the driver at fault.
  • Contact a motorcycle accident lawyer. Once the accident is reported, everything you say and do will be used against you by the other parties’ insurance company. Before you make any statements, negotiate any settlements, or make any claims about fault, you should contact our offices for help and representation.
