Houston Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Were you or a loved one injured in a motorcycle accident?
In virtually every motorcycle accident, the insurance company will do their best to avoid paying the injured person. If you or a loved one has been injured riding a motorcycle, it is critical to retain an experienced motorcycle accident attorney who can deal with insurance companies and juries who sometimes have a negative view of bikers and those people who choose to ride them.
The lead auto accident attorney at McDonald Worley is a well recognized and award-winning in litigating car accident injury cases—having won millions in compensation for clients nationally to date.
Time and again clients have expressed gratitude that their case was handled by a firm with years of experience dealing with the unique issues arising in injury cases—it makes a difference. Motorcycle injury law involves unique issues not necessarily involved in automobile accidents.
Injured in a motorcycle accident?
When motorcyclists are involved in an accident, there is a greater risk that they will suffer from serious injuries from the simple fact that more of their bodies are exposed to the road than someone who is riding in a car.
Bikes must obey traffic rules just like everyone else on the road, but too often, drivers of large trucks or automobiles do not look carefully for motorcycle riders and fail to yield right of way which causes grave injuries or even death to a rider.
According to the Texas Department of Transportation, there were almost 1,900 injuries caused by motorcycle crashes in 2015.
If you are in a motorcycle accident, take action to protect your safety and your rights. If you are able, make sure you know all the parties involved in the bike accident. It is also a good idea to obtain a police report.
Get medical help as soon as you can. Not all injuries are obvious right away. Some injuries may take days or weeks to fully manifest. Getting medical help right away will increase your chances of having your injuries detected by a doctor so treatment can begin right away before symptoms worsen.
Filing a motorcycle accident lawsuit may help you obtain compensation for a variety of losses, including:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Cost of motorcycle repair
- Physical therapy costs
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished earning capacity
- Loss of quality of life
If the motorcycle accident is especially egregious, an injured biker may be able to obtain punitive damages, which are an additional punishment for the person who caused the accident.
Wrongful death lawsuits may be filed by family members of someone who died in a motorcycle accident. Family members may also be able to seek compensation for losses they suffered as a result of the loss of their loved one.
