Sharing the Road with Larger Vehicles in Austin
Motorcycle, bicycle, pedestrian, and scooter accidents happen for a number of reasons, but the majority occur because of the negligence or recklessness of another driver on the road. Some of the most common causes of accidents on the roadway around Austin and throughout the rest of Central Texas include, but are not limited to, the following reasons:
- Failure to lookout for other road users (blind spots)
- Failure to use turn signals
- Failure to stop or yield
- Distracted driving (texting while driving)
- Impaired driving (DUI and intoxication)
- Driver fatigue (sleep deprivation)
The injuries caused in motorcycle, bicycle, pedestrian, and scooter accidents can be serious and sometimes even permanent or fatal. This is especially true if the rider is not wearing a helmet or other protective gear. However, even the most sophisticated protective gear is often no match for the force and size of trucks and larger vehicles on the road. The result can be significant harm to victims in these accidents, including:
- Damage to nerves, muscles and other soft tissues
- Whiplash and neck injuries
- Back injuries and disc herniations
- Road rash, burns, and lacerations
- Facial trauma and disfigurement
- Broken bones
- Amputated limbs
- Internal organ damage
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injury
Given the serious nature of many of these injuries, it is important that you secure the services of an experienced vulnerable road user personal injury attorney to handle your case and get you the compensation that you deserve.
