"This was my first accident ever and with that it was a 5 car pile up. I was scared and had no idea what to do. I called Ben's office to get me some help when the insurance was trying to say they didn't know who was at fault and I had to pay out of pocket."

What Are Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents?

Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents in Texas include:

01

Left-Turning Vehicles

Motorcycle collisions often occur when a motorcyclist is traveling straight through an intersection, and a left-turning vehicle fails to yield the right of way.

02

Unsafe Lane Changes

Drivers may not always check their blind spots thoroughly, leading to accidents when they change lanes without noticing nearby motorcycles.

03

Speeding

Excessive speed reduces a driver’s reaction time and increases the severity of accidents.

04

Driving Under the Influence

Riding a motorcycle under the influence of alcohol or drugs significantly impairs a rider’s ability to control the bike, make sound judgments, and react to hazards.

05

Distracted Driving

Drivers who are distracted by activities such as texting, talking on the phone, or adjusting the radio may not be fully aware of motorcycles in their vicinity.

06

Failure to Yield

Drivers failing to yield the right of way to motorcycles at intersections or when merging onto highways can lead to collisions.

07

Road Conditions

Poor road conditions, including potholes, uneven surfaces, or debris, can pose a major risk to motorcyclists who may have less stability and control than larger vehicles.

08

Inexperienced Riders

Inexperienced motorcyclists may lack the skills and judgment needed to navigate traffic and respond effectively to challenging situations on the road.

09

Lane Splitting

Lane splitting, or riding a motorcycle between lanes of slow-moving or stopped traffic, can be dangerous if not done cautiously.

10

Weather Conditions

Adverse weather conditions, such as rain, can make roads slippery and reduce visibility, increasing the risk of accidents.

11

Motorcycle Defects

Mechanical defects in the motorcycle, such as brake malfunctions or tire blowouts, can contribute to accidents.

12

Sudden Stops

Motorcycles can stop more quickly than larger vehicles. If a car suddenly stops in front of a motorcycle, the rider may not have sufficient time to brake, leading to a collision.

13

Rear-End Collisions

Motorcyclists are vulnerable to being rear-ended by larger vehicles, especially if the driver behind is not paying attention or following too closely.

How Long Does a Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit Take?

A trial for a motorcycle accident can take several months or even years, depending on several factors, such as:

The Severity of Your Injuries

A case that involves severe injuries can take longer to resolve. This is because it often takes time for the full extent of injuries to become apparent. During this time, ongoing medical treatment and evaluations may be needed.

Liability is Disputed

If liability is unclear or is being disputed, the case may take longer to resolve. Investigating the accident and collecting evidence can be time-consuming.

Insurance Negotiations

Many motorcycle accident cases are resolved through negotiations. The length of settlement negotiations can depend on the responsiveness of the insurance company, how complex the case is, and the insurance company’s willingness to reach a fair settlement.

Legal Discovery

Discovery is a pre-trial phase where both parties exchange information and evidence. The discovery phase can be time-consuming, especially if extensive documentation is involved.

Court Scheduling

The availability of court dates and the speed at which the court processes cases can vary.

Mediation and Settlement Attempts

Many cases go through mediation or settlement negotiations before reaching trial. This can impact the overall timeline.

Appeals Process

If either party decides to appeal a court decision, it can add more time to the resolution. Appeals can extend the overall duration of the case.

Complexity of Legal Issues

Cases involving complex legal issues, such as multiple parties or product liability, may take longer to resolve.
