Car caught on video swerving and hitting motorcycle in Texas

Perhaps you have seen the shocking video footage taken on a Texas highway, in which a car swerves from its lane and strikes a motorcycle that appeared to be attempting to pass on the left. Upon impact, the motorcycle, which had a driver and his girlfriend on board, took a tumble onto the highway.

Later in the video, the driver, a 68-year-old man, is confronted regarding his actions. The man responds by saying he does not care about having struck the motorcycle.

Following the accident, the operator of the motorcycle was taken to the hospital having suffered deep abrasions. His girlfriend suffered deep arm cuts and a broken wrist. She was said to be in stable condition after being taken out of the Intensive Care Unit.

The man was later arrested and issued charges for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The man told a TV reporter that he was unable to control his actions due to being bitten on the leg by an insect.

It would only be natural to feel anger when considering the circumstances of this case. However, legal decisions are not based on emotions, but rather the manner in which evidence is interpreted by a judge or jury.

Likewise, insurance companies have criteria that are applied to determine whether or not to pay a claim. Sadly, courts and insurance companies do not always render decisions that are fair to victims.

This is why if you are a motorcyclist who has been injured due to the acts of a negligent driver, it is important that you present as strong a case for compensation as possible. A Texas motorcycle accident attorney could investigate and assess the circumstances of your accident. The attorney could inform you of what may be your best options for obtaining appropriate recompense.
