Common road hazards that cause motorcycle accidents

Motorcyclists in Texas and across the country need more skills and coordination than drivers of automobiles. This is particularly true given the road hazards with which bikers often have to cope. Roads that pose little or no threat to drivers of four-wheeled vehicles could cause motorcycle accidents with devastating consequences.

Both slick and rough, bumpy surfaces are dangerous terrain for bikers. Roadways in disrepair, such as potholes, or where construction work is underway present concerns for bikers. Even road surfaces in otherwise prime condition pose deadly hazards when wetness, leaves, oil or antifreeze cause them to be slippery. Painted surfaces, trolley tracks and crosswalk lines can also present issues for motorcyclists.

The presence of gravel on a road surface is another potential hazard. Unfortunately, it's something that is common on those favorite winding back roads that bikers love. Navigating a motorcycle safely through these tricky hazards can be challenging. Railway tracks pose double hazards because the tracks can catch the bike's wheels, and water can accumulate between the tracks, posing additional risks. Last but equally hazardous are unanticipated live animal crossings.

Victims of motorcycle accidents in Texas may have grounds to sue other drivers, based upon a showing of negligence that is deemed to have caused of materially contributed to a crash. Those who suffer injuries in accidents caused by road hazards might have questions about their right to pursue civil lawsuits to seek recovery of damages. An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to assess the circumstances of a particular accident to determine which party or parties should be sued.

  • Great Lawyer For A Reasonable Price

    Mr. Hulett was a very competent and effective lawyer for me in my custody case. Not only did we get the desired result but he did it for less than half of what my ex paid to her attorney on the same matter.
