BROWNSVILLE — The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) reports a Brownsville man was killed in a motorcycle crash on January 29.

A DPS news release said the accident happened around 12:22 a.m. on FM 1732 east of New Carmen Avenue in Brownsville. A preliminary investigation revealed a black/gray 2024 Suzuki motorcycle, operated by a male rider, was traveling east on FM 1732 when it veered off the roadway and struck a utility pole.

The rider, identified as 39-year-old Juan Pablo Oropeza Bellavia, died from his injuries at the scene.


What is the average settlement in a motorcycle accident?

Many people wonder how much compensation they’re likely to get after a motorcycle accident, but because every accident is different, it’s impossible to arrive at an “average” settlement amount. Even if there were possible, it wouldn’t be useful for determining how much a particular person might receive. A Biker who suffered a broken arm and was able to continue working is more likely to have a smaller settlement that one who suffered a traumatic brain injury and had to stop working for months. It all depends on the circumstances.

According to a report for the organization Jury Verdict Research, the median motorcycle injury verdict between 1999 and 2006 was $73,700. The average award for the same period was $561,065. These figures do little more than indicate the wide range of awards.
