Corpus Christi Driver Negligence
Motorcycles are far outnumbered by cars and trucks on the roadway, and other drivers often fail to see motorcyclists due to their smaller size. When poor visibility is compounded by negligent driving, the consequences can be disastrous.
One way to protect yourself on a motorcycle is to drive as if you are literally invisible. If you assume no one can see you at all, and drive accordingly, then you can better your odds of getting to your destination in one piece.
In order to recover damages from another driver who may have caused a motorcycle crash, the injured motorcycle rider must prove the other driver was negligent or did not exercise the same reasonable care any prudent person would exercise under the same or similar circumstances.
Terms such “reasonable care” and “prudent person” are what are known as legal “terms of art.” They appear to be simple English but have been interpreted by the Courts so many times that they have taken on a meaning of their own in the claims and Courts process.
This is where a veteran Corpus Christi Injury Attorney can be of great help. One of our attorneys will know how these “terms of art” are used and interpreted by claims adjusters, defense lawyers and judges. This knowledge can make all the difference in how much you ultimately collect for your damages and injuries.
Most motorcycle crashes result in serious physical injury. If you have suffered injury, or a family member has been killed, call for a confidential consultation with an experienced and caring Corpus Christi motorcycle accident attorney at Carabin & Shaw.
