Hire a Motorcycle Injury Attorney with Experience
The warm climate in McAllen and the Rio Grande Valley make it the perfect location for motorcycle enthusiasts to take a joyride on their bike or use a motorcycle as their primary mode of transportation. But the enjoyment bikers get from riding quickly fades when motorcycle accidents occur. Often other drivers simply don’t see or look for motorcycles.
Negligent drivers in passenger vehicles who do not safely share the road cause dangerous, sometimes deadly motorcycle accidents, putting bikers at risk for severe and fatal injuries. Bikers often sustain severe injuries in a traffic accident because they do not have the same protection afforded by other vehicles.
Motorcycle accidents often have lifelong consequences for bikers who are lucky enough to survive an accident. Recovery can include weeks or months in the hospital while losing income from missing work. Knowing that the accident was entirely preventable makes matters worse. If you have sustained injuries in a motorcycle accident because of another driver’s carelessness, you should not have to shoulder the economic burden that comes with your injuries.
