Motorcycle accidents claim thousands of lives every year across the United States and subject thousands more to serious injuries.

What Our Lawyers Can Do After an Austin Motorcycle Accident

  • How We Can Help

    Many motorcycle accident victims have never sought legal help before, and they wonder if they truly need legal assistance. After all, isn’t that why you have insurance?

    The fact is, you can’t expect insurance companies to represent your best interests. If another party caused your accident, your insurance company will expect them to pay for your damages. The other party’s insurance company isn’t in business to pay out massive claims and help accident victims. Their goal is to protect their company, earn as much money as possible, and cut expenses wherever they can. The easiest way to cut expenses is to limit the money spend on claims. Without an attorney advocating for you, you’ll likely end up with a settlement that’s far less than what you deserve.

  • Give You a Free Consultation and Collect No Money Upfront if You Hire Us

    During your free consultation, we’ll learn more about your accident, ask questions, and start to create a plan for your case. You can use this time to figure out if we’re the right choice for you and learn more about your options. If you hire us, you pay nothing upfront. We work on a contingency basis, so we only get paid if we secure compensation on your behalf.

  • Investigate Your Accident and Give You Proper Evidence

    A thorough investigation is necessary after any accident. With our extensive knowledge of personal injury cases, we know what type of evidence is necessary for a successful claim, and we will do everything possible to create a strong case for you.

  • Make Sure You Have Access to High-Quality Medical Care

    If you were injured during your motorcycle accident, it’s crucial to treat your injuries promptly. We will get you set up with doctors in the area and delay payment until your case has been completed.

  • Take Your Claim to the Insurance Company

    We know that the other driver’s insurance company will likely put up a fight. By the time we bring our claim and our request for compensation to them, we will have a thorough case that proves their client’s liability and protects your right to compensation. Throughout the negotiation process, we will keep you informed and involved.

Injuries Caused by Motorcycle Accidents

Commonly reported motorcycle accident injuries include:

  • Bone fractures
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Road rash and subsequent infection
  • Dislocated joints
  • Abrasions
  • Lacerations
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Whiplash and other neck injuries
  • Herniated discs and other types of back injuries
  • Crush injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Amputations

Motorcyclists are at much greater risk of serious injuries than those in other types of vehicles. Simply falling off of your motorcycle puts you at risk of fractures and other injuries, and those who get thrown from their motorcycles often sustain severe or fatal injuries.

Only rarely are Austin motorcycle accidents are caused by errors on the part of the motorcyclist. Almost all of the time it is drivers of other motor vehicles who are responsible for causing the crashes. Common behaviors leading to crashes include:

What Causes Motorcycle Accidents

  • Turning in front of the motorcycle
  • Speeding and other forms of reckless driving
  • Driving while distracted or fatigued
  • Lane drifting or changing lanes without signaling
  • Failure to yield
  • Not following road signs or signals
  • Following motorcycles too closely
  • Driving aggressively
  • Failure to check blind spots before changing lanes

While the cause of the accident may seem obvious, a full investigation is required to uncover all of the factors in your crash. Our goal is to find the party responsible for your accident and hold them accountable.

What to Do After an Accident

It’s difficult to think clearly after an accident, since adrenaline can put you into fight-or-flight mode and prevent you from remaining calm. Take a few seconds to regain your composure after a crash, and then follow these steps to protect yourself and your rights.

05

Compensation

In most cases, motorcycle accident claims are settled out of court between the victim’s attorney and the liable party’s insurance provider. However, the path to a fair settlement can be bumpy for motorcyclists. Insurance providers often try to put blame on the motorcyclist and limit their client’s liability.

Depending on the details of your accident, you may be able to secure compensation for your medical expenses, lost income and lost future wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, disfigurement, and disability.

We have an impressive track record of successful claims, including:

  • A $700,000 settlement for a motorcyclist who was run over by a bus
  • $450,000 for a motorcyclist who crashed after encountering highway debris
  • $250,000 for a motorcyclist hit by a driver making a left turn
  • Driver’s failure to yield led to a $250,000 settlement for a motorcyclist

What You Should Know About Motorcycle Accidents in Austin

As you consider your legal options, make sure you know all the relevant facts.

  • Statute of limitations. Under Texas law, you have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, it is recommended that you begin the legal process as soon as possible after your crash.
  • Fatal crashes. If someone you love has died in a motorcycle accident, surviving family members may be entitled to compensation through a wrongful death claim.
  • Comparative negligence. Texas utilizes modified comparative negligence law, which states that victims may still recover compensation if they were partially negligent in the crash. However, you must be 50% or less at fault to secure compensation. Your award will be reduced by your level of negligence.
