I’m very sorry to hear about your accident. If you are a motorcycle accident and you have been struck from behind while riding, it’s critical that you speak with a personal injury attorney with experience in handling motorcycle accidents. The longer you wait, the more likely it is that you miss a chance to file out on your claim because the statute of limitations has expired.
Rear end accidents are especially dangerous for motorcyclists. A rear end collision typically occurs when a motorcyclist stops suddenly and is hit by the automobile behind it. In other cases, the motorcyclist is riding and the vehicle behind the motorcycle simply does not see it, and hits it. A rear end collision can cause a motorcyclist to suffer serious personal injuries, including permanent disabilities, severe head injuries, or even death.
On average, between 4,000 and 5,000 motorcyclists are killed each year in the U.S., and close to 100,000 are injured. A motorcycle accident can cause a huge strain on families, including physically, emotionally, and financially. A Houston motorcycle accident typically results in the inability to work, either temporarily or permanently, as well as huge medical expenses.
