Motorcycle & Bike Accidents

 In a typical year, roughly 3,000 Texas motor vehicle accident fatalities occur, including deaths due to car wrecks, truck crashes and motorcycle collisions.

Dallas Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Fighting For Motorcycle, Bicycle Accident Victims

Riding a motorcycle or bicycle can be exhilarating, exciting and gives the rider a sense of freedom they don’t get in a vehicle. As a motorcycle and bicycle injury injury attorney, Tom Carse knows that injuries sustained by motorcycle and bicycle riders are often catastrophic. Bikers and bicyclists do not have the same protection afforded to vehicle drivers such as airbags, seatbelts and other safety features to protect them. The biker or cyclist has only a helmet, gloves and possibly protective clothing.

As a personal injury attorney, Tom Carse knows that one of the most common reasons for motorcycle and bicycle accidents is visibility – car and truck driver simply do not see you – and not because of aggressive motorcycle driving or careless cyclists. Motorcycles are often harder to see at night or in bad weather, leading to many cars or trucks pulling out in front of them or cutting them off on the highway. Although highway safety officials work hard to remind drivers to be aware of motorcycles, distracted driving, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol or simply not paying attention often causes accidents with life affecting consequences.

Bicycle Accidents

Surprisingly, most bicycle fatalities are adults rather than children, possibly because falling is more dangerous for an adult than a child. In most cases, bicycle accidents involving adult riders are due to collisions with other vehicles. As a personal injury attorney, Tom Carse understands that the majority of bicycle accidents are caused when a motorist fails to keep a proper lookout and does not see the bicycle approaching. In approximately one-quarter of all cyclist deaths in the United States, the biker was struck with the front of the vehicle, which often means the bicyclist had the right-of-way, but the driver did not see them.
