Who is Responsible for Motorcycle Accidents?

Every motorcyclist knows that no matter how cautious they are, there is always the risk of an accident because other drivers don’t understand the dangers that their actions can pose to riders. Many times, motorcycle accidents happen simply because car and truck drivers failed to notice motorcycle riders, and distracted driving (including texting and driving) is the number one cause of motor vehicle accidents.

Other common mistakes that can lead to motorcycle accidents include:

  • Hostile/aggressive driving
  • Failure to signal
  • Making improper lane changes
  • Failure to check blind spots
  • Tailgating
  • Speeding
  • Hostile/aggressive driving

It’s vital to hire an experienced El Paso motorcycle accident lawyer who can help you prove that the other driver was at fault if you were in a motorcycle accident. At Cesar Ornelas Law, we have access to experts who will investigate the circumstances surrounding your accident. These investigators will document the scene, interview witnesses, and review the accident reports compiled by the police to make sure your damages are appropriately compensated. If necessary, they can even testify on your behalf in court.

Dealing with Insurance Claims Adjusters

No matter who was at fault in your accident, insurance companies for both parties will be interested in limiting their liability in the accident so they can pay you as little as possible. In many cases, they will make a settlement offer just days or weeks after the accident – before you can fully assess any injuries and other costs – in the hope that you will settle for less than you’re owed.

An experienced lawyer like the ones at Cesar Ornelas Law knows how to properly determine the extent of your losses and get you all the compensation you deserve.

Accounting for monetary and non-monetary damages, including:

  • Pain and suffering

  • Lost wages

  • Property damage
  • Property loss
  • Damaged safety gear

What to Do If You Are Involved in a Motorcycle Accident

Motorcycle accidents are often traumatizing, and the experience can leave you hurt, scared, and unsure what to do next. However, knowing the steps to take after a motorcycle accident is critical to protecting your rights and making sure that the other driver is held responsible for the damages they caused.

Call the police as soon as possible after your accident and be sure to ask for a copy of the police accident report. This report can be critical when it comes to proving the circumstances surrounding the accident, and it often contains other important information, like contact and insurance information for the other driver involved. Remember not to admit fault, explain the facts of what happened, and what caused the accident.

Make sure you get medical attention immediately, even if you’re not in pain. When you’ve been in an accident, your body floods with adrenaline, which means you may not feel an injury right away. Getting checked out by a qualified medical provider can reveal injuries that you might not know you have, and it helps later on if you have to take legal action and prove your injuries are real.

The first thing you should do after seeing a doctor is to contact a lawyer like Cesar Ornelas, who has experience handling motorcycle accident cases. We’ll explain your legal rights, and our experts will get to work investigating the circumstances of your accident.

Our lawyers will handle the insurance companies and their adjusters, so you don’t have to, and if necessary, we will fight in court on your behalf.
