Amarillo Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Let Us Fight for You with 30+ Years of Personal Injury Experience
Motorcycles have become an economical and fun form of transportation across the country. While they are less expensive to buy, maintain, and operate, motorcycles are a dangerous way to travel, especially on highly trafficked roads and highways. Motorcyclists have no protection when it comes to accidents. They are often thrown from their bikes, resulting in injuries far more serious than those of the occupants of cars or trucks.

You will need a tough advocate who knows how to tenaciously pursue what is fair in terms of the damages you should receive. With more than 30 years of experience, Quackenbush Law Firm has what it takes to skillfully represent you throughout the claims process.
Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcyclists are not given the same respect while on the road as other vehicles. Often, other motorists claim to fail to see the motorcyclist or they fail to give proper right of way. The most common motorcycle accidents involve being hit by another car or truck.
These accidents can be caused by various factors, such as:
- Distracted driving
- Driving while under the influence
- Violating traffic laws, such as tailgating, running stop signs or signals, failing to signal, etc.
- Opening a vehicle door in the path of a motorcycle
- Aggressive driving
- Failing to check mirrors and blind spots, thus failing to see a motorcyclist
Motorcyclists can also be injured due to dangerous roads or defective parts on the bike itself. As a result, motorcyclists can sustain injuries ranging from road rash to traumatic brain injuries.
