La daños corporales y homicidio culposo práctica de la ley de Las Oficinas Legales de incluye la representación de los demandantes en y en todo el sur de que son heridos en accidentes involucrando scooters, Segways, y otros vehículos motorizados. Como los precios del gas siguen aumentando, la popularidad de los scooters motorizados se ha incrementado.

Cuando se trate de vehículos motorizados, es fácil confundir el juguete de un niño de un vehículo de motor totalmente operativa. La mayoría de los ciclomotores son calle legal en todas partes, y algunos tienen el poder para que se monten en las carreteras e incluso tienen una velocidad máxima por encima 100 millas por hora. Mientras que las bicicletas de bolsillo, como mini-helicópteros y mini ninjas pueden parecer juguetes, se recomienda sólo para los modelos eléctricos para los niños. Bicicletas de bolsillo de gasolina son las motocicletas en miniatura que pueden alcanzar fácilmente velocidades de carretera y cuentan con los mismos o mayores riesgos que las motos a tamaño real.

Segways
La Segway Personal Transporter es una de dos ruedas, dispositivo de transporte de auto-estabilización. A pesar de su novedad, el Segway es un vehículo motorizado. La operación de un Segway tanto viene con todos los riesgos asociados con cualquier otro vehículo motorizado. Caídas de los Segways o colisiones con otros vehículos de motor pueden causar lesiones graves, de fracturas compuestas abiertas a la lesión cerebral traumática (TBI), o lesión de la médula espinal que causa parálisis parcial o completa incluyendo paraplejia y tetraplejia.

Los usos más comunes de los Segways son las fuerzas del orden municipal y empleados de la fábrica / almacén en grandes operaciones comerciales. Debido a su coste y los problemas de seguridad (Segways fue objeto de una retirada por la Comisión de Seguridad de Productos al Consumidor en 2003, después de que varias personas resultaron heridas en las caídas de Segways, incluyendo una herida en la cabeza que requieren varios puntos de sutura), Segways siguen siendo algo de una novedad entre el público en general. Sin embargo, que la novedad se está desvaneciendo como la conciencia pública de los aumentos de Segways. Por ejemplo, visitas guiadas con Segways actualmente se operan en varias ciudades de todo el mundo, incluyendo

Segways calle-legal
Antes de Segways, vehículos motorizados se les prohibió ser operado en las aceras de la ciudad en casi todas partes por razones de seguridad. Ahora, debido a la fuerte presión de la industria Segway, más de la mitad de los estados tienen “Segway-friendly” aceras. Dado que los Segways son todavía una invención novedosa para la mayoría, su uso en las aceras atestadas podría representar peligros significativos para sus operadores y al público en pie-que viaja. A pesar de las leyes que permiten Segways están claramente escritas con el Segway en cuenta, otros scooters motorizados y artilugios pueden caer dentro de la definición legal de los vehículos permitidos, aumentar el volumen de tráfico motorizado y el riesgo de accidentes en las aceras y en las calles en las intersecciones ocupadas.

Segways y la Ley de
Bajo La ley de, dispositivos de movilidad eléctricas de asistencia personal (EPAMDs) puede ser operado en las aceras de la ciudad, así como los carriles bici, calles, carreteras, y carreteras, a una “velocidad razonable y prudente, teniendo debidamente en cuenta el tiempo, visibilidad, peatones, y otro tráfico transporte,” así como las condiciones de la superficie de la calzada. Lo que constituye una “velocidad razonable y prudente” no se explica, excepto que las personas tienen prohibido operar EPAMDs a velocidades que ponen en peligro la seguridad de personas o bienes, o con indiferencia deliberada o sin sentido para la seguridad de personas o bienes. El EPAMD debe incluir frontal, trasero, y reflectores laterales, una lámpara de cabeza, y un cuerno, como equipo obligatorio de seguridad.

La ley exige además que los operadores EPAMD a ceder el derecho de paso a los peatones, incluidas las personas con discapacidad que utilizan dispositivos de asistencia y animales de servicio. Dado que los Segways pueden viajar tres o cuatro veces más rápido que la persona promedio camina, puede ser difícil para el piloto Segway ceder el derecho de paso en una acera llena de gente.

Mientras Código de Vehículos de no menciona el Segway por nombre, está claro lo que se refiere a. Un EPAMD se define en la ley como “auto-equilibrio, nontandem dispositivo de dos ruedas, que no es mayor que 20 pulgadas de profundidad y 25 pulgadas de ancho y puede girar sobre si mismo, diseñado para el transporte de una sola persona, con un sistema de propulsión eléctrica promedio de menos de 750 watts (1 caballo de fuerza), la velocidad máxima de los cuales, cuando se alimenta únicamente por un sistema de propulsión en una superficie plana pavimentada, no es más que 12.5 millas por hora.”

Aunque la ley estatal establece para el uso Segway legal en todas las carreteras y aceras, sino que también brinda a las ciudades y condados la autoridad para regular el tiempo, lugar y modo de su operación, incluyendo la prohibición de su uso en determinadas áreas o en su totalidad, si se considera necesario para la seguridad de los peatones, incluyendo personas mayores y personas con discapacidad. Las agencias estatales pueden asimismo limitar o prohibir su uso en la propiedad estatal, si así lo desean.

Who Is At Fault for a Dallas Motorcycle Accident?
Our Texas motorcycle accident attorneys can get you the legal help you need in your motorcycle accident case. If you or a loved one were a victim of a motorcycle accident and don’t know where to turn, know that help is available. Contact our motorcycle accident attorneys for a free consultation. Our staff is standing by to help answer any questions you may have and to guide you in making the best legal decision for you.

Motorcycle Defects
Another reason why motorcycle wrecks happen is due to motorcycle defects. Poor maintenance, mechanical failures or defects found on a motorcycle are all contributors to motorcycle accidents also. When a major part of a vehicle is found to be defective, the manufacturer often issues a major recall of the vehicle or recommends ways the issue can be fixed. Despite this, when a defect is found on a motorcycle, something serious can really go wrong fast. Motorcycles themselves are very hard to operate and it requires the rider and passengers to be in a very upright position when driving the motorcycle. However, if a defective part fails and causes the motorcycle rider to lose control of his or her vehicle, he or she will have a very difficult time controlling the motorcycle. In this situation, it is very hard for the motorcycle rider to regain control and safely land on the side of the road if the motorcycle fails.

Drunk Driving Motorcycle Accidents in Texas
Motorcycle accident cases are similar to regular passenger vehicle accident cases when it comes to drunk driving and alcohol being involved. In both cases, a lawsuit can be filed against a negligent bar or restaurant that serves alcohol and ended up over serving their patrons who caused a motorcycle accident. Texas dram shop law holds a bar or alcohol serving establishment liable if their servers over serve alcohol to their patrons and their patrons causes an accident because they ended up having a blood alcohol level which exceeded the legal amount allowed in Texas which is greater than .08%. In this situation, a bar or restaurant can be held partially liable if their drunk patron caused a motorcycle accident which either led to severe injury or even death. In a first party dram shop cause of action case, the rider of the motorcycle can pursue legal damages against the bar or restaurant that over served the rider alcohol and the rider ended up causing him or herself a motorcycle wreck which also caused an injury. In a third party dram shop cause of action case, the injured victim of a motorcycle accident can seek damages from both the motorist who caused the wreck and any third parties that contributed to the motorcycle wreck such as a bar or alcohol serving establishment. First party and third party dram shop cause of action cases also apply to wrongful death cases as well. Those without the proper legal experience to take on dram shop cause of action cases will have a hard time proving that a third party such as a bar or alcohol serving restaurant contributed to an accident by over serving their patron alcohol. However, the motorcycle accident lawyers of our firm have 20 years of experience litigating drunk driving accident cases in Texas cities. Our attorneys are very familiar with Texas dram shop law. Our attorneys are known for their ability to identify all parties involved in your loved one’s loss. We make sure that all parties who contributed to your loved one’s motorcycle accident is held accountable and brought to justice for their gross negligence.

Motorcycle Product Liability
Although it is uncommon, some motorcycles are made with flaws such as poor design or engineering. Many more motorcycles are manufactured poorly to where they fail in real world stressful conditions and cannot handle the load it has to encounter. Some examples of poorly built motorcycles that have mechanical failures are a chain that breaks, an engine bearing that fails, a brake that fails, or even a brake proportioning valve that is improperly biased. All these types of mechanical failures can have serious consequences such as severe personal injury or death. If in fact, a mechanical failure on a motorcycle leads to the death of someone or causes someone to experience severe personal injury, then the victims of a motorcycle accident or their bereaved family members have the right to pursue litigation against the manufacturer in the form of a product liability claim in Texas. Not only that, but multiple parties can be held liable as well. For example, a motorcycle that is defective may have more than one manufacturer that contributed to the poor bike. The manufacturer that built the brake system which was defective along with company the built the overall bike can both be held liable in a product liability claim lawsuit.

However, just because you are allowed to proceed with a product liability claim lawsuit against the motorcycle manufacturer does not mean this is an easy task to pursue. In fact, it is very difficult to litigate a case involving product liability claim when it comes to motorcycle accidents and their defective parts. First, you cannot base your claim on mere speculation. You have to be able to prove that a defective part actually existed and caused your wreck by gathering hard and clear evidence. You cannot simply state that a motorcycle part was broke. In fact, it is the plaintiffs who shoulder the burden of proof of proving that a manufacturer error or defect is what caused the motorcycle accident in the first place. For you to prove this, you must have a qualified engineer look over the motorcycle and inspect it to see what caused the motorcycle to go bad. The engineer has to evaluate the bike and see where the defect was and diagnose the problem. After diagnosing the problem, the engineer must compose a report of the defective parts that led to the motorcycle error and accident. Most importantly, the motorcycle and its defective parts need to be stored in a safe and secure environment so that it can be used as critical evidence in a trial.

Many product liability claims fail because of the plaintiff’s failure to preserve key evidence of the defective motorcycle. Someone who is a non-attorney or someone without the proper legal background cannot successfully take on product liability claims due to their lack of knowledge regarding these types of cases. They do not know how to handle manufacturer defects and do not understand the importance of preserving evidence. Despite this, product liability cases are still the hardest cases to litigate even for experienced attorneys. However, at our law firm, our attorneys are familiar with product liability cases. We recommend that you do not handle product liability cases on your own due to its complex nature. Rather, we feel that it is critical you get all the help you need by working with an experienced and competent motorcycle accident lawyer who knows what they are doing and can help win your case.

Motorcycle Maintenance Issues and Misrepresentations of Condition
A bad mechanic who performs poor maintenance on a motorcycle can also cause a motorcycle accident to occur. When you take a car to a workshop, the mechanic will often fix the problem associated with the car. However, in motorcycle accidents, poor maintenance and work on the bike can lead to severe personal injury or death for the motorcycle rider and his or her passenger. The truth is that not all motorcycle repair shops hire the competent and experienced workers and mechanics needed in order to fix a bike. A poor technician or mechanic may overlook a problem on the motorcycle that can cause mechanical failures on the bike. If this happens, then both the mechanic who operated on the bike and the repair shop can be held liable if the motorcycle ends up causing an accident.

Some mechanical issues are not a result of an oversight but of a greater problem. In some cases, a private seller or dealership will knowingly sell a poor motorcycle that is in poor mechanical condition and hide this fact as well. In fact, our firm has dealt with this type of situation. One individual called our firm because they had purchased a sport bike which was in bad condition from a licensed dealership. The dealership sold the sport bike acting like it was in perfect condition when in fact the dealership hid all the bad defects of the bike from the purchaser. When the purchaser of the sports bike road home with it, he noticed that the bike was acting funny and not normal. The individual decided to take the bike to a repair workshop to see what the problem was. After further inspecting the bike, the repair shop discovered that the bike came with many defects. Defects they found included the radiator not being properly attached, beneath the new fairings the triple tree was cracked, (this is very dangerous), and that the frame of the bike was damaged and masked with body filler and spray paint. What happened was that the sport bike was sold like it was brand new and in good condition when it really wasn’t. The dealership covered up the sport bike’s flaws and sold it anyway. This practice is illegal and in violation of the Deceptive Trade Practices Act. The bad thing is that the bike easily could have claimed the life of the purchaser. If a tragedy did occur, then the dealership that sold the sports bike would be held liable for their gross negligence and for their deceptive practices. They could also face punitive damages.

Adjuster and Jury Bias in Texas Motorcycle Accident Cases
The general public already has a negative view when it comes to motorcycle riders. They often view motorcycle riders as a wild bunch who love to drive freely and recklessly on the roads and highways. In fact, this negative stereotype is often what jurors feel as well when they are dealing with a motorcycle accident case. Due to this stereotype, insurance adjusters and defense attorneys who handle motorcycle accident cases will use this stereotype to their advantage. They will pinpoint the motorcycle rider for being 100 percent guilty for causing their own wreck. They do this by swaying the jury’s perception of the motorcycle rider. They will often frame them as a wild bunch whose wild ways is what led to the motorcycle accident. In other words, insurance adjusters and defense attorneys will try to convince the jury that the motorcycle rider is fully to blame for their own accident due to their reckless ways even if the stereotypes turn out to be false. If the insurance adjuster is successful in showing this, then they can save their company a lot of money.

Unfortunately, even if an injured motorcyclist sustains a severe injury, insurance adjusters will still try to deny their claims despite the obvious help they need in paying for medical bills and lost wages. You should never handle a motorcycle accident claim on your own without proper legal assistance. If you try to handle it on your own, you may not be able to get the maximum amount of compensation you deserve. When you work with a motorcycle accident lawyer, our staff will make sure that insurance companies and defense attorneys will not use the stereotypes associated with motorcyclists to influence the jury.

At Our Law Offices, our lawyers know that motorcycle riders can also be safe drivers. We know that Texas motorcyclists also enjoy a good time by riding on the roads and highways to events like the Austin ROT Rally held every year. Also, we know that many motorcycle riders would rather use motorcycles as their sole means of transportation in order to save time and money. There are also several motorcycle riders that always consider the safety of others, other passengers and themselves on the road. However, to sway the jury on your side, more than words are necessary. You must be able to prove to the jury that motorcycle riders are more than just safe drivers. You must have strong evidence from the accident scene so that it can be admissible in court. At our firm, our attorneys have 20 years experience gathering critical evidence in auto accident cases of all types. We have the experience and background to obtain proper accident scene evidence, eye witness testimony and expert testimony. Our ability to investigate the truth and find the necessary evidence in your case can help us shoulder the burden of proof needed in your situation. With the evidence we collect, we are then able to identify all the negligent parties who contributed to your motorcycle accident. If you do not have any hard evidence or proof, then your case may be in jeopardy. Words alone cannot save you. Furthermore, your chances of receiving financial compensation are also slim without any hardcore evidence. Strong evidence will destroy any stereotypes that the jury may have against motorcycle riders.

Aggressive Insurance Adjusters
Another difficult area a motorcycle accident victim may encounter has to deal with aggressive insurance adjusters. Insurance adjusters are mostly worried about losing a huge amount of money to the plaintiff. Insurance adjusters couldn’t care less about the pain and suffering associated with an accident victim. They are only worried about saving their company a lot of money and couldn’t care less about the conditions of the accident victim. Sometimes, they are even awarded bonuses and raises for their ability to deny claims and save their company from awarding large chunks of money to the plaintiff. Due to this incentive, insurance adjusters will fight hard and aggressively to make sure your claim is denied first. If not denied, then they will lessen its value. They will even use certain tricks and tactics to deny your claim or offer you the smallest amount available.

An example of how insurance adjusters can deny you a claim is by blaming you 100 percent for the motorcycle accident. If they are successful in doing this, then the claim can be dismissed. Furthermore, if multiple parties are found to be liable in an motorcycle accident case, then the insurance company does not have to pay as much to the accident victim. As a result, insurance adjusters’ goals are to blame the accident victim for causing his or her own accident. In fact, they will even badger the victim by loading them with tons of questions in order to skew their memory and make them sound less credible. They will record their statement and then use it against them in court. The insurance adjuster’s goal in this case is to disprove the credibility of the accident victim and their memory. Furthermore, if the defense attorney in the case has conducted an investigation into the accident scene before the plaintiff does, then the insurance adjuster will use the findings of the investigation in court to have an open and shut case against the motorcycle accident victim. If you do not have any evidence yourself, then you stand very little chance of refuting the claims made against you by the defense team and insurance adjusters.

Another trick insurance adjuster’s use against you is their ability to get you to settle for a lesser amount than you deserve. They know you are in need of quick cash to pay for things like medical bills, treatment, and lost wages. Therefore, insurance adjusters will often offer the accident victim or their bereaved family member quick cash in exchange for them to sign documents which waiver their rights to sue or seek further damages. This is not good news. The settlement offer the insurance company gives you is often cheap and the lowest amount they will ever pay you. Plus, if the insurance adjuster can get a hold of you before you had a chance to speak with an attorney, they will usually win by making you sign documents that waiver your rights to sue. You are left with a lot less money than you need. In the end, the insurance company has won because they saved their company from losing a lot of money to the accident victim. Their first goal is to get the case completely dismissed. But there next step is to be able to offer the bereaved family or injured party the least amount of money they will take.

Most motorcyclists use every possible safety precaution. 

But a motorcyclist hit by a passenger car or SUV may not stand a chance. In these motor vehicle accidents, the motorcyclist is at grave risk of severe injury, permanent disability, or even death. 

In fact, 4,985 motorcyclists died in motor vehicle crashes in 2018, according to the National Highway Safety Administration. Another 76,000 motorcyclists were injured in traffic accidents in that year alone. 

The motorcyclists who survive crashes often suffer serious injuries that require hospitalization, surgery, and long-term medical treatment. Some motorcycle accident victims never regain their ability to work or resume normal family life. 

Even if a motorcyclist makes a relatively good recovery, the motorcycle accident takes its toll. The individual may lose time and income from work, need help with household chores, and have to live with lingering pain from motorcycle accident injuries. In short, the accident can significantly change a motorcyclist’s life — temporarily or even permanently. 

That is why; if you or a family member is involved in a motorcycle accident, consult an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer immediately.

Protect your legal rights. Call our office today for a free initial consultation. 

A motorcyclist injured in a motorcycle accident has a special need for help from a highly-qualified motorcycle accident attorney. In important ways, the legal claims of a motorcyclist are different — and more complicated — than the claims of an automobile driver, because law does not consider a motorcycle to be a “motor vehicle.” 

Therefore, the most important legal claim available to a motorcyclist who is seriously injured in a motorcycle accident may be a “third-party” lawsuit against the careless driver and the owner of the motor vehicle involved in the crash. Under law, the injured motorcyclist may be able to recover damages from them for non-economic losses, including pain and suffering. 

Texas is not a “no fault” state. On the contrary, Texas is what is called a “comparative fault” state. In Texas, each driver has to take financial responsibility for any accident in which they are more than 50% at fault. Most drivers do this by carrying liability insurance.

As you can see, the legal claims of a motorcycle accident victim are complicated. If you or a loved one was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, you need to contact an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer immediately.

=======================gtg

The most precarious of situations is that of the motorcyclist—while they enjoy many freedoms with their chosen mode of transportation, they face daily risks and hazards unknown to motorists and truck drivers. They are unseen by automobile drivers and virtually unprotected by their minimal clothing and gear, motorcyclists must remain aware of their legal rights and available remedies if confronted with an accident. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by someone else, you need to contact our office for a free consultation today. You pay nothing unless we win your lawsuit so there’s no risk to you. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

It is estimated that motorcyclists are 26 times more likely to perish in a crash than a motorist. In addition, motorcyclists are 5 times more likely to become injured in an accident. 

Challenges Faced by Motorcyclists:

Motorists often violate motorcyclists’ right of way, causing an accident.
Motorcyclists are smaller visual targets, are easily obscured by vehicles, and hard to see in harsh weather. 
Motorcyclists are often obscure at intersections where an estimated 70 percent of motorcycle accidents occur.
Typical road hazards like potholes, debris, puddles, oil slicks, ruts, and uneven pavements are detrimental to motorcyclists. 
At higher speeds, motorcycles are known to “wobble,” making the rude especially unstable and unsafe. Usually caused by a misalignment of the front and rear tires, motorcyclists can become seriously injured in an accident caused by this manufacturing defect. Thus, the manufacturer may be held liable if an accident does occur.
More so than automobiles, motorcycles require a great deal of skill, coordination, training and riding familiarity. Many accidents are in part due to a rider’s lack of skill and familiarity with riding. 

Protect Your Rights:
If you have been involved in a severe motorcycle accident, you must preserve your right to recovery by taking all necessary steps.
Remain at the accident scene, at least long enough to give a statement, name, and address to the police officer. You may be subject to criminal penalties if you flee.
Relate all details of the accident to the officer, but avoid definitive statements that may unintentionally blame you for the accident. This is true for making statements concerning your health. Injuries may take a few days to appear.
We make home and hospital visits and will come to you free of charge. Many people ask “How much will a personal injury attorney charge to handle my case?”. The answer is simple. You pay nothing unless we win your case! Call now for your free consultation and to get expert legal advice from a motorcycle accident lawyer.
