Motorcyclists are often injured when other motorist fail to yield the right-of-way. These are bad wrecks many times.
Many times motorists are not careful enough about watching out for motorcycles. Injuries from motorcycle accidents can be very serious.
Motorcycle helmets are not required in Texas; however, the failure to use a helmet can be admissible if the failure to use a helmet helped to aggravate the injuries the motorcyclist suffered.
Insurance companies will usually try to blame a motorcyclist for their own accident even when it seems clear that the other driver is at fault. There is a bias among juries against motorcyclists since motorcycles are perceived as being dangerous. Physical evidence obtained at the scene will help show that a motorcyclist was operating appropriately. This can help overcome some of the bias that exists against motorcyclists.
