Atascosa County Motorcycle Wreck Lawyers

Motorcycles have as much right to the road as any vehicle, but because of the negligence of other drivers, motorcyclists and their passengers face an increased risk of serious injury or death. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcyclist fatalities are 28 times more likely than car wreck deaths in the event of an accident. Approximately 90,000 motorcyclists are injured and 5,000 lose their lives each year in the United States.

The vast majority of motorcycle riders understand the small margin for error that exists on a bike and take all necessary safety precautions, including helmet use. However, even the safest and most competent riders are at the mercy of fellow travelers, including passenger vehicles and commercial trucks. When either collides with a motorcycle, the results are often tragic.

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident caused by a negligent driver, the trusted personal injury attorneys at Barrera, Cavazos & Powers are here to fight for you. We pursue maximum compensation for medical bills, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, lessened earning capacity, reduced quality of life, and pain and suffering.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

During a recent 12-month NHSTA data measurement, Texas had the third-most motorcycle deaths in the country with 458, trailing only Florida (555) and California (529). Approximately 40 percent of accidents occur from a passenger vehicle making a left turn while a motorcycle is going straight or passing in a neighboring lane. Other accident factors include:

  • Opened car doors on parked cars;
  • Excessive speed;
  • Unsafe lane changes;
  • DWI;
  • Unsafe following distance; and
  • Defective motorcycle parts.

These accidents can cause a variety of severe injuries, including deep lacerations, broken bones, pavement burns, traumatic brain injury, and spinal cord injuries. The impact can be life-altering, which is why you need a skilled injury lawyer who knows how to achieve the best possible result in your case. With Barrera, Cavazos & Powers, you get elite-level legal representation from a dedicated attorney who will fully assess your long-term needs so you get the necessary financial award.

What is the Process of a Personal Injury Claim?

Barrera, Cavazos & Powers will communicate with an offending driver's insurance carrier, and accumulate evidence to support your injury claim, including police reports, photos, and eyewitness statements. We will pursue an agreeable settlement to cover all expenses (past, present, and future) and suffering endured. If initial negotiations and mediation are unsuccessful, we will be prepared to get the outcome you deserve through courtroom litigation. It often takes approximately six months to begin the mediation process, and if that does not produce a settlement, it usually takes an additional six months before we go to trial.
