On January 19, 2014, a deadly accident involving two motorcycles occurred. One man was killed, and his brother was hospitalized. They were travelling along the feeder road that runs southbound on Interstate 45. The accident occurred when a driver ahead of them who was unfamiliar with the area attempted to enter the closed HOV lane. Realizing his mistake, the driver turned back into the feeder road. The brothers were unable to avoid a collision.
It is an unfortunate fact that when cars and motorcycles collide, motorcycles almost always come out the losers. If you’ve been injured in a car/motorcycle mishap, you may need the services of a Houston motorcycle accident attorney. Kirkendall Dwyer LLP can offer immediate assistance.
Motorcycle accidents can be catastrophic because a driver is very exposed, even when wearing leathers and a helmet. He doesn’t have a car’s metal body to serve as protection. Injuries are almost always severe, and can even be fatal. In most car/motorcycle collisions, the driver of the car is at fault, but in cases where the motorcyclist has been partially responsible, recovery can be barred or reduced. This is why it is so important to contact a Houston motorcycle accident attorney.
Probably the first thing an insurance company will want to know is whether you were wearing a helmet. If you weren’t, you need a Houston motorcycle accident attorney who can present a strong case on your behalf. Contact Kirkendall Dwyer LLP at 713-522-3529 for a free consultation.
