TX injury lawyerMotorcycle riders are at an increased risk of serious injury and death from accidents with other vehicles. Unprotected by the chassis of a car or truck and easily exposed to external hazards, accidents that would be minor for a passenger in a larger, enclosed vehicle can be far more dangerous on a motorcycle. While motorcycle riders have a reputation of engaging in risky behavior, the research shows that most motorcycle collisions actually happen when drivers of larger vehicles do not see motorcycles because they violate the motorcycle’s right of way. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident in Texas, it is essential to get help from a personal injury attorney who can help you understand how Texas law protects you.

Texas Law Allows You to Obtain Compensation For a Variety of Injuries

While most people know that personal injury victims may be able to obtain compensation for the physical injuries they have suffered, personal injury lawsuits can result in damages for a variety of other physical and nonphysical losses, including:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Motorcycle repairs or replacement
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Pain, suffering, distress, and anguish
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Lowered quality of life
  • Loss of companionship
  • Funeral expenses

Texas Law Can Protect You Even if You Were Partly at Fault

Sometimes an accident is caused because of dangerous or negligent actions from both the motorcyclist and the vehicle with which he or she collided. For example, if a crash happens when a motorcyclist is driving 10 miles per hour above the speed limit and a car turns left in front of the motorcycle because the driver fails to see the incoming bike, both parties may be at fault. But if less than 50% of the fault is yours, you can still bring a suit against the other responsible party.

Dallas personal injury attorneyMillions of Americans are embracing the latest fad to revolutionize the transportation industry: peer-to-peer ridesharing services. With just a few taps on a company's smartphone app, you can hire a safe and convenient ride for a reasonable fee.

In the last few years, companies like Uber and Lyft have become titans in the transportation industry. Although they market their 'green' business models as a solution to American's urban transportation crisis, these companies are actually increasing congestion, hurting transit, and contributing to a national increase in traffic fatalities.

In October 2018, the University of Chicago released a study that claims rideshare drivers are responsible for a 3% increase in the number of traffic fatalities across the country. Uber and Lyft are continually hiring new, inexperienced, and occasionally felonious drivers to expand their areas of business and maximize their daily profits. Consequently, both companies have been repeatedly besieged by costly lawsuits involving passenger injuries and fatalities, insurance disputes, and even claims of driver exploitation.

If you were injured in a hit-and- run accident in Texas, you may be feeling overwhelmed and at a loss for what to do. After all, because the other driver remains unknown, there is no one to take the blame, which means that you are stuck with the medical bills, property damage costs, and other expenses associated with the accident…or are you?

Unfortunately, there always have been and always will be runaway drivers. Because of this, many states require drivers to carry other forms of protection or for insurance companies to offer other forms of protection upon the purchase of a standard auto insurance policy. If you were injured in a hit-and-run accident in Dallas, take a deep breath and know that you do have options. Our Dallas car accident attorneys here at Clark Law Group can help you explore those options and fight on your behalf for fair compensation for your damages.
