Texas Motorcycle Lay Down Accident Lawyer
What Happens When You Are Injured in a Houston Accident Because You Chose to Lay Down Your Motorcycle?
As an experienced Texas motorcycle accident lawyer, we receive many calls about crashes where the motorcyclist had to choose to lay down their motorcycle to avoid further serious injury. Often times, the insurance company will blame the rider for their own injuries because the rider chose to lay the bike down. It is the job of the injury lawyer to show that had the motorcyclist not laid the bike down, they would have been more seriously injured. Also, the lawyer will prove why the auto driver was at fault for the accident. We see these types of cases often when it comes to auto drivers are trying to cross a street or leaving a private driveway. When the vehicle driver is not paying attention, it causes the motorcyclist to have no choice but to lay down the bike.
